Marvel's Avengers players - rejoice! The new Spider-Man Hero DLC is getting closer, and we now have a new Cinematic Trailer to see the character in action ahead of launch.
Watch the exciting trailer now below:
RELEASE DATE - We finally know when he's coming!
It's been a long time coming but it looks like Spider-Man is going to be added to Marvel's Avengers on November 30th in a huge title update that feels a little like a hit back at Square Enix after the damning statements made by the publisher in regards to Crystal Dynamics' Avengers game.
Here's what Square Enix has said about the next title update, though... Specifically, Spider-Man.
" The iconic web slinger Spider-Man will come exclusively to PlayStation players in the November 30 update along with the Spider-Man: With Great Power Hero Event! You’ll experience Spider-Man’s story through unlockable challenges woven throughout the Avengers Initiative. Here’s a quick taste of his journey in Marvel’s Avengers! Peter Parker uncovers AIM’s new plan to acquire technology that could make their Synthoid army unstoppable and total domination inevitable. He must partner with the Avengers to stop this looming threat, and forms a tentative friendship with Ms. Marvel and Black Widow while keeping his identity hidden. As a Hero accustomed to working solo, he struggles with the new dynamics of working with a team. Will he join up full time with the Avengers, or stay independent in his fight against AIM?"
Spider-Man is coming to Avengers on PS4 and PS5 on November 30th through a new series of missions. We can't wait!
When could we find out a specific release date?
If you're a fan of Marvel's Avengers or the eventually-upcoming Spider-Man DLC, you'll know that we don't have a specific release date for the new PlayStation exclusive character just yet.
However, we might get one in a few hours...
PlayStation is hosting a State of Play presentation at the following times - and it's said to be specifically showing third-party titles, new and existing:
- 14:00 October 27th PST
- 17:00 October 27th EST
- 22:00 October 27th BST
We don't know what's going to show up (for the most part), but the Spider-Man DLC for Marvel's Avengers is a safe bet considering the state of the roadmap shared by the team behind Avengers last month.
When SHOULD the Spider-Man DLC come out?
Looking at the content roadmap below, you can see that we're right in the middle of the "Fall/Winter" section where Spider-Man can be found.
A blog post from the development team stated the following alongside the reveal of this roadmap:
" There will be a new playable Hero with a Hero Event starring Spider-Man in 2021, only on PlayStation platforms. We’ll have more information on Spider-Man closer to launch and you may catch a glimpse of him here and there along the way."
We haven't seen much of Spider-Man at all yet, so we're not sure he's going to be released anytime too soon. However, an announcement and confirmation that he's on the way - with a specific release date - would do a lot to help keep fans on side ahead of his release.
Marvel's Avengers has broken a lot of promises and left a lot of fans disheartened. It's making a slow comeback, but it's hard to imagine that this game will ever win back everyone who was on board before its troubled launch.
