Hello, friends! On the road to Marvel’s Spider-Man you’ve waited patiently and not so patiently – I’m looking at you @GameOverGreggy – for information on the highly anticipated blockbuster action game that Marvel Games, Insomniac Games and Sony Interactive Entertainment are creating exclusively for PlayStation 4 consoles. You’ve tweeted, posted analysis and theory videos, created fan art, cosplayed and even organized into the #SpideySquad…and we’re now thrilled to announce that you can play “Marvel’s Spider-Man” on Friday, September 7, 2018! Pre-Order Now!
And feast your eyes on the final box cover art!
The strong red background and confident pose of our more experienced hero sends an immediate message to the world that this is a bold new take on everyone’s favorite Web-Slinger. To showcase the unique look of our Spider-Man in his all-new swanky Advanced Suit, his pose takes inspiration from over 50 years of classic Spider-Man comic book covers and art. Educated 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.
You’ll see this box art on the standard edition of “Marvel’s Spider-Man” when it’s available at retail and digitally for $59.99. And while many of you have requested that we show you the cover for the game, many more have asked: “Will there be a Digital Deluxe and Collector’s Editions of the game?” You got it – we’re delivering both!
The Digital Deluxe Edition of the game ($79.99) will include a copy of the game as well as new story chapters with our post-launch DLC series “The City That Never Sleeps”. That’s right, we’ll be supporting the game post-launch with three new chapters featuring new missions, characters, Spider-Man suits and villains I can’t wait to tell you about! Meanwhile, if you pre-order the Digital Deluxe Edition, you’ll also receive by mail this limited edition collectible FiGPiN featuring Spider-Man in the iconic pose from the box cover art.
For those mega Spider-Man fans craving even more amazing collectibles, you should check out the Collector’s Edition ($149.99), which includes all of the content from the Digital Deluxe Edition, as well as a Steelbook case featuring the iconic white spider, a Mini Artbook from our friends at Titan Books, and an awesome Marvel’s Spider-Man statue by the geniuses at Gentle Giant! You’ll notice we haven’t revealed the entire Collector’s Edition statue, just Spider-Man perched on top of something. What could he be crouched on? Stay tuned!
No matter where you buy it, or which Edition you select, if you pre-order you’ll get special items. Whether it’s a Spidey Suit Pack featuring the fan-favorite Spider-Punk suit from the Spider-Verse comics event (as well as two additional suits we will reveal this summer), the Spider-Drone gadget, a PSN Avatar, an original PS4 theme designed by renowned artist Adi Granov, or extra skill points to unlock your favorite Spider-Man talents sooner – our pre-order bonus is the total package! Check out this video of the Spider-Punk suit in action:
And if that’s not enough, we’re revealing even more details in the cover story of this month’s issue of Game Informer! The GI crew visited the Insomniac Games studio (which is conveniently just 15 minutes from the Marvel Games office), went hands-on with Marvel’s Spider-Man, talked to myself – and Insomniac Creative Director Bryan Intihar, Art Director Jacinda Chew and more members of the dev team — and will bring you the biggest look at the game yet! Plus we asked famed AMAZING SPIDER-MAN cover artist Alex Ross to create this powerful painting for the issue’s cover!
