Spider-Man will be added to Marvel’s Avengers as a Playstation-exclusive character post-launch, it has been confirmed. It a post on the Playstation Blog, Jeff Adams, Associate Art Director, Crystal Dynamics, revealed that Spider-Man would be available for PS4 and PS5 in 2021.
“When Spider-Man comes to our stable of heroes, we’ll be marking his debut with an in-game event that will introduce him to the wider world of Marvel’s Avengers,” Jeff said. “The event is comprised of a series of unique challenges for the hero to take on, testing his abilities, and yielding some exciting results.”
“It’s never been a better time to be a spider-fan! The team at Crystal Dynamics, along with our partners, are overjoyed that we get to be a part of this hero’s gaming journey. We can’t wait for you to add Spider-Man to your Marvel’s Avengers roster in early 2021, and as we’ve promised before, he will be available at no additional cost to owners of the base game, exclusively on PlayStation.”
The news is bound to upset quite a few fans, as players across Windows PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X will miss out on an entire character. With Spider-Man being revealed as the second character coming to the game, this also means that those players will be waiting for a longer time before receiving new content in the game.
