Insomniac Games has announced the arrival of Marvel’s Spider-Man, exclusively for the PS4. The game, which has been in development for the last few years, will hit retailers on September 7.
Insomniac is also giving fans a look at the final box art, which shows a more experienced Spidey in his brand-new Advanced Suit. The web-slinger’s pose is inspired by over 50 years of fan-favorite comic book art and artistry, including J. Scott Campbell, Mark Bagley, John Romita Sr., John Romita Jr., Joe Quesada and (of course) Steve Ditko, as well as many others.
Standard, Deluxe, and Collector’s Editions
The standard edition of the game will be available in physical and digital form for a retail price of US $59.99 / CDN $79.99 MSRP.
The Digital Deluxe edition will retail for US $79.99 / CDN $99.99 MSRP. This version will include a copy of the game and new story chapters with Insomniac’s post-launch DLC series, Marvel’s Spider-Man: the City That Never Sleeps. Fans will get three new chapters each with new missions, villains, and characters, and additional suits for Spider-Man. Stay tuned for more details on this in the near future.
If you pre-order the Digital Deluxe edition, you can get a limited edition collectible pin by mail featuring Spider-Man as he appears on the cover art of the game. (Please note: this offer is only available to residents of the US and Canada.)
For those collectors who still want more, there will also be another version of the game. The Collector’s Edition includes all of the digital content from the Digital Deluxe Edition, as well as a Steelbook case featuring the iconic white spider, Mini Artbook from Titan Books, and an awesome Marvel’s Spider-Man statue by Gentle Giant. This version will retail for US $149.99 / CDN $199.99 MSRP, while supplies last.
Eagle-eyed viewers will notice that something is missing from the statue. Stay tuned for the full reveal!
But wait, there’s more!
