Insomniac's PS4 Spider-Man Release Date Revealed

Insomniac's PS4 Spider-Man Release Date Revealed

We finally know when we'll be getting the newest Spider-Man game.

We finally know when Insomniac Games' long-awaited Spider-Man game will be swinging exclusively to PlayStation 4 consoles. The studio announced that Marvel's Spider-Man will be available on Friday, September 7 in standard, digital deluxe, and collector editions.

Insomniac Games made the announcement on the official PlayStation Blog. The studio also revealed the official, final box art for the game which is much more simple than I expected it to be. It's just Insomniac's version of Spider-Man on a striking red background. It's simple but pretty classy with Insomniac saying that it pays nods to the work of comic book veterans like J. Scott Campbell, Mark Bagley, John Romita Sr., John Romita Jr., Joe Quesada, and Steve Ditko.

Insomniac also detailed the other editions of Marvel's Spider-Man alongside the standard retail version. There will be a Digital Deluxe edition of the game priced at $79.99 that includes the post-launch DLC series-"Marvel's Spider-Man: The City THat Never Sleeps." This includes three post-launch chapters, each with new missions, characters, and additional suits for Spider-Man. If you pre-order the Digital Deluxe edition, you'll also be mailed a collectible pin of the same Spider-Man on the box art. Only for U.S. and Canadian residents sadly.

Spider-Man Collector's Edition

There's also the physical Collector's Edition which will retail for $149.99. This is a physical set that includes a steelbook case, mini artbook, the post-launch content, and a collectible Spider-Man statue. Insomniac hasn't revealed the full statue design yet however, only showing off the Spider-Man portions of the figure.

You can check out a brand new trailer for the release which teases the different suits Spidey can wear in the game. Insomniac says that their version of Spider-Man is more experienced and older (unlike Tom Holland's portrayal of a young Spider-Man in Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming). With that in mind, you'll be playing as a Spider-Man who's a little more agile, a little more charismatic when swinging around New York City.

Insomniac admits that it hasn't shown a lot of Spider-Man since Paris Games Week and promises that more info for Marvel's Spider-Man will be out in the coming weeks. So check back in with us for more info. We also have an extensive Spider-Man guide with all the latest release dates, trailers, and news bits.
