Spider-Man confirmed for a 2018 release on PS4

Spider-Man Ps4 cover

Last night the celebrated United States magazine, Game Informer, confirmed that their next issue cover feature would be Insomniac's new PS4 exclusive, Spider-Man.

Superhero games haven't had the most impressive run on consoles in recent years, but the latest crack at bringing Spider-Man to life in pixels has got everyone excited.

Then there's the Collector's Edition, a $149.99 collection that features all the Digital Deluxe goodness, plus a Steelbook case, art book, and Spider-Man statue.

Insomniac also said "if you want a comparison, Ratchet & Clank should give you an idea". We went with a pure red background and a striking image of the web-slinger.

Other fans chimed in after Insomniac's response including a mic drop.

The Game Informer cover art, designed by Alex Ross, as well as the trailer, are embedded below. You betcha, true believers - we've got both. Insomniac Games has confirmed that there will be three new chapters with new missions, additional villains, new characters, and lots of new Spider-Man suits. Now we've learned that Spider-Man will launch on PS4 September 7th.

All of the trailers we have received confirmation this but all of them lack a more specific window. No one had actually gotten to play the game, so there was no way to know how far along in development Spider-Man actually was last summer.

If you're in the United Kingdom, that means you'll need to pay attention at 4PM BST. We haven't revealed the entire statue for the Collector's Edition, just Spider-Man perched on top of something. It's too spoilery to show you now, but stay tuned!

Special editions and pre-order bonuses announced. Check out this video of Spider-Punk and its suit ability in action below.

While we're at it, let's ask if Sony would like to release Uncharted and Horizon Zero Dawn for the Xbox One as well.

While there have been debates that previous Spiderman games HAVE managed to redeem the webhead with titles like Web of Shadows, this is again highly debatable as those games have a mixed reception amongst critics, fans, and vice versa. The game will tell a completely new Spider-Man story and is not tied to a film or comic book.

Sony Interactive Entertainment, Insomniac Games, and Marvel have teamed up to create a brand-new and authentic adventure.

Marvel's Spider-Man is set to launch on September 7th exclusively for the PS4. The game is now available for pre-order on Amazon!
