Spider-Man is a PlayStation exclusive in Marvel's Avengers

The free playable character DLC will launch in 'early 2021'

In a ridiculous console exclusivity moment, Sony confirmed this morning that Spider-Man will be a PlayStation-exclusive character in Marvel's Avengers when he joins the playable cast in "early 2021."

We don't know what he'll look like expect a "Crystal Dynamics take on Spider-Man" with classic inspirations but he'll "debut with an in-game event that will introduce him to the wider world of Marvel's Avengers." As with other post-launch characters, Spider-Man will be a free download.

Wild news for a game that many of us are, at best, on the fence about. I'm glad there's a beta.

As for the wall-crawler himself, Insomniac's rendition of Spider-Man will be a tough act to follow, and I feel like Crystal Dynamics will be hesitant to show him in Avengers until it's feeling super confident.

"When he's arcing through the air on his web line, we want you to feel graceful and light, and be able to utilize a variety of web configurations and gadgets to enhance your traversal," according to lead combat designer Vince Napoli. They're aiming for a seamless transition "from navigation to combat."

I can't help but wonder what else Sony might be eyeing for PlayStation 5's first few months.

Oh fuck them! I was hoping to skip this game! But, I own every single Spider-man game or games with him in it, now I have to get it!
