Marvel’s Spider-Man Swings Into Stores This September

The release date for the highly anticipated PlayStation 4 exclusive Marvel’s Spider-Man has finally been revealed as September 7, 2018. A post by Insomniac’s Community Director James Stevenson over on PlayStation.Blog details the game’s launch date as well as final cover art and some juicy details about the various editions of the game set to be made available. We’ve included an excerpt of the post below:

Everyone here at Insomniac Games is thrilled to announce that Marvel’s Spider-Man will launch on Friday, 7th September 2018 exclusively on PlayStation 4 consoles.

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 favourite 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.

As for what we can expect from the different editions of Spider-Man, so far a standard, Collector’s and digital deluxe version have been revealed. The standard and digital deluxe editions have already been added to the Australian PlayStation Store at a cost of $99.95 and $114.95, respectively. The deluxe includes a few early unlocks, a dynamic theme and avatar as well as access to the newly-announced post-launch DLC The City that Never Sleeps. The collector’s edition hasn’t been added to any Aussie retail outlets’ portals yet but we have an image of it below, including a statue whose bottom half is still shrouded in mystery (apparently it’s a tad spoilery…).

No hard word on a local price for this yet, but stay tuned

As always, stay tuned to Well Played for more details as they come.

Kieron started gaming on the SEGA Master System, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy. The 20-odd years of his life since have not seen his love for platformers falter even slightly. A separate love affair, this time with JRPGs, developed soon after being introduced to Final Fantasy VIII (ie, the best in the series). Further romantic subplots soon blossomed with quirky Japanese games, the occasional flashy AAA action adventure, and an unhealthy number of indie gems. To say that Kieron lies at the center of a tangled, labyrinthine web of sexy video game love would be an understatement.
