Marvel’s Spider-Man swings to PS4 very soon
Insomniac Games, an American video game developer company, has revealed the date of release of much anticipated ‘Marvel’s Spider-Man’ to PlayStation4 (PS4).
The game developer corporate said they had been getting emails, phone calls, tweets, Instagram posts and impassioned pleas for its release, so they had decided to launch it to PS4 on September 7 this year.
“Everyone here at Insomniac Games is thrilled to announce that Marvel’s Spider-Man will launch on Friday, September 7, 2018 exclusively for the PS 4 system,” said Community Director Insomniac Games James Stevenson.
“It’s been an incredible experience for us to spend the last few years working on this game. From getting to create our own unique universe and story for our favorite Super Hero, to working with our talented collaborators at PlayStation and Marvel Games, to developing relationships with the Spider-Man and Marvel fan communities (#SpideySquad represent!), it’s been an amazing journey thus far.
“Along with the release date, we get to show you the final box art for Marvel’s Spider-Man! Insomniac has a history of excellent game covers, from Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time to the bold Olly Moss Resistance 3 cover. We went with a pure red background and a striking image of the web-slinger,” he said.
The more experienced Spidey in his brand new Advanced Suit can be seen confidently web-swinging against a bold red backdrop. To juxtapose the unique look of the Spider-Man, his pose takes inspiration from over 50 years of fan-favorite Spider-Man comic book art and artistry.
“You’ll see this cover adorning the standard edition of Marvel’s Spider-Man when it is available at retail and digitally for US $59.99 / CDN $79.99 MSRP. While many of you have been asking us to show the cover for the game, many more have wondered: will there be digital deluxe and collector’s editions of the game? You betcha, True Believers — we’ve got both,” James Stevenson said.
He revealed that the Digital Deluxe edition of the game (US $79.99 / CDN $99.99 MSRP) will include a copy of the game as well as new story chapters with post-launch DLC series – Marvel’s Spider-Man: The City That Never Sleeps.
“That’s right, we’ll be supporting the game post-launch and you’ll be getting three new chapters each with new missions, new villains and characters, and additional suits for Spider-Man. More details on that a bit later down the road. Buyers who pre-order the Digital Deluxe edition will also receive by mail a limited edition collectible pin (only available to residents of US and Canada) featuring Spider-Man as he appears on the cover art for the game,” said the community director.
Of course, for those collectors out there who want an incredible Spider-Man collectible alongside Marvel’s Spider-Man, Insomniac Games has just the edition for you.
The Collector’s Edition (US $149.99 / CDN $199.99 MSRP, while supplies last) includes all of the digital content from the Digital Deluxe Edition, as well as a Steelbook case featuring the iconic white spider, Mini Artbook from Titan Books, and an awesome Marvel’s Spider-Man statue by Gentle Giant.
Pay extra special attention to the statue though and you’ll notice something is obviously missing. The developers have not revealed the entire statue for the Collector’s Edition, just Spider-Man perched on top of something.
That’s a lot of info – but I realize some of you have been dying to get your hands on new information about the game itself as we haven’t said much since Paris Games Week and PSX last year. Well, there are a ton more details in the cover story of the May issue of Game Informer. The GI crew came out and got to go hands-on with Marvel’s Spider-Man, talking to the dev team and bringing you the biggest look at the game yet. Plus we got famed Marvels and Amazing Spider-Man cover artist Alex Ross to create this “Amazing” cover painting for the magazine, said Stevenson.
Game Informer will also be posting stories and interviews with members of the Insomniac Games team all month long, so keep an eye on their website for the latest.
