Marvel’s Avengers developer Crystal Dynamics has confirmed that long-awaited roster addition, Spider-Man – who will only be available on PlayStation consoles – will “for sure” have his own story mission and cutscenes.
It should be good news to fans of the action-adventure game who have seen little about Spidey’s pending arrival up until this point, even though he’s expected to release by the end of the year.
“Spider-Man is what we call an ‘event’ so he will have cutscenes and a story for sure,” Matlack replied.
In a separate comment, Matlack also assured fans that its highly-anticipated Klaw Raid may indeed have some “familiar environs”, but will be considered a completely “unique” experience.
“It’s a mix, but will be fun!” Matlack added.
Spider-Man was revealed to be coming to Marvel’s Avengers – controversially as a PlayStation-only addition – last August, with Crystal Dynamics announcing an “early 2021” release date for the character. However, questions began to arise earlier this year when the studio revealed a Marvel’s Avengers development roadmap in which Spidey was notably absent, and ended in Crystal Dynamics formally confirming a delay.
While the studio’s lengthy silence might have had some Spider-Man fans concerned, the team confirmed the character was “still on track” for a 2021 appearance and though they wouldn’t be drawn on the specifics, they insisted that the team had “always scheduled” Spider-Man would make an appearance in 2021. Then, a couple of weeks back, a new content roadmap revealed that the long-awaited PlayStation-exclusive arrival of Spider-Man is now listed for “fall/winter”, while players on all platforms will get to confront Wakanda villain Klaw in Avengers’ first-ever raid.
