Release date announced for latest game featuring Marvel’s Spider-Man
Are your spidey senses tingling? Insomniac Games announced the release date for their much-anticipated take on Marvel’s Spider-Man storyline. Along with several other details surrounding the title, this game will be released on September 7 of this year.
This game will be exclusive to the PS4. This means that PC games and Xbox users won’t be able to play on their chosen console.
Some of the features that have people talking about the game include a playable Mary Jane. MJ and Spidey have been one of fans’ favorite comic book couples. MJ does not have superpowers, so her perspective allows players to interact with the story on a more human level. She delves into the investigative reporting, and players experience it along with her.
Another feature that has fans buzzing is New York City. Some superheroes live in fictional places, but Spidey has always been an NYC native. So, the city is treated well in the game with iconic landmarks playing a part in the story.
Insomniac also teased fans with news of special Spider-Man gear (surprisingly NOT obtained through micro-transactions). One suit obtained by special pre-order featured a dynamically white spider symbol, a departure from the bold black symbol. There promises to be two more suits unveiled before the release date to entice the true believers to don their web slingers.
If you can’t wait, and want those bonus features, pre-orders are open!
