Spider-man to join Marvel’s Avengers exclusively on PlayStation

During the most recent Marvel’s Avengers War Table stream, developers Crystal Dynamics announced Hawkeye would be the SECOND character added to the game’s roster as part of its free DLC post-launch. Gamers raised their eyebrows wondering who the first character would be. We now have an answer.

On the PlayStation blog, Jeff Adams, associate art director at Crystal Dynamics announced Spider-man will be coming to Marvel’s Avengers in early 2021 and ONLY on PlayStation for free.

“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,” Adams 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.  And like the rest of our heroes in Marvel’s Avengers, we will offer multiple cosmetic outfits and gameplay experience options, so you can make your vision of the wall-crawler a reality.”

Marvel’s Avengers launches on September 4 for PlayStation 4 and will also launch for PlayStation 5 this holiday.
