Marvel’s Avengers continues to expand its playable comic book superhero universe with new content and updates. In August we welcomed Black Panther and the War for Wakanda, the game’s first major expansion that is available for free. And before the end of the year, PlayStation players will also welcome New York’s best-known friend and neighbor. Spider-Man will be available in 2021 as an exclusive character on PS4 and PlayStation 5,although its exclusivity with just two platforms has not prevented Crystal Dynamics from putting a lot of effort into its creation.
Through the game’s Discord channel, shared by MP1ST, veteran producer Dan Matlack guarantees that Spider-Man’s arrival will match that of the other characters in the game. That is, it will have its own story, its missions and its cinematic scenes to fully introduce it, even if it is an exclusive character. “Spider-Man is what we call an ‘event,’ so it will have scenes and a story,of course,” said the Crystal Dynamics representative.
In other words, PlayStation players will not be satisfied with receiving a new character , but it will come complete, with all the content expected of each new Marvel hero in the game. Much is still unknown about its implementation in the game, but the California studio has reiterated numerous times that Spider-Man will arrive before the end of the year.
Marvel’s Avengers debuted precisely a year ago, in September 2020, to a very tepid reception from players and critics. Since then, Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix have worked to expand the offering of this superhero action RPG with cooperative multiplayer elements. If you want to know the impressions that the game caused us at its launch, here is the analysis of Marvel’s Avengers .
