In case you have all been waiting for the announcement of the long awaited Spider-man game, the wait is over. Sony has just updated its blog and has stated that Marvel’s Spider-Man is going to be releasing on September 7 this year. It will be available exclusively on the PlayStation 4.
After the length gameplay demo that we saw at E3 last year, there has been no other content that has reached the public since then. And from what the developer itself said, people won’t be able to kill people in the game, even by throwing them off buildings.
The game is being developed by Insomniac Games and it has come up with a small teaser trailer with the update of the launch date. You can check out the trailer below.
The game will offer a certain extent of freedom to explore the in-game world but may not be a full-fledged open world scenario. Here’s what the company has to say in its blog about the new iteration of the wall crawler who is now a more experienced personality.
“Our 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 our Spider-Man, his pose takes inspiration from over 50 years of fan-favorite Spider-Man comic book art and artistry. Astute fans of the wall-crawler will see nods to the work of J. Scott Campbell, Mark Bagley, John Romita Sr., John Romita Jr., Joe Quesada and (of course) Steve Ditko, as well as many other iconic Spider-Man artists.”
The company even announced that it will be supporting the game post-launch and we’ll be getting three new chapters each with new missions, new villains and characters, and additional suits for Spider-Man.
The game will be priced at $59.99 (Rs 3,900 approx) for the normal digital edition. The Digital Deluxe edition of the game will be priced at $79.99 (Rs 5,200) will include a copy of the game as well as new story chapters with the post-launch DLC series – Marvel’s Spider-Man: The City That Never Sleeps.
Those who pre-order the Digital Deluxe edition will also be receiving 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.
The Collector’s Edition which is priced at $149.99 (Rs 9,750 approx) will include 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 a Marvel’s Spider-Man statue by Gentle Giant. Besides these everyone pre-ordering is entitled to some goodies.
