PlayStation has confirmed that Spider-Man is coming to Marvel’s Avengers and that it will be a PS4 exclusive. That means, in effect, that the Base Store leak was reported by us to become true from the start; even if later the same media tried to deny the information for some reason.
The PlayStation blog reads as follows: “We can’t wait to add Spider-Man to the Marvel’s Avengers roster in early 2021, and as we’ve previously promised, it will be added at no additional cost to owners of the base game, exclusively on PlayStation.”. As a reminder, Square Enix has already recognized that all additional heroes of the looter shooter will be free, although it appears that this particular one will not come out of PS consoles.
Noticia original: In the last few hours the rumor had emerged that Spider-Man was going to be an exclusive playable character on PS4 in the expected Marvel’s Avengers. But the information has been denied as quickly as the ‘friendly neighbor’ climbs the skies of New York.
The British retail company Base had generated speculation this past weekend, with a listing in which it specified that Spider-Man was an exclusive character of said version on the Sony console. The poster read “Play as Spider-Man exclusively on PS4.” Now, the company has contacted the IGN portal, assuring that the information was not correct.
The curious thing is that, according to the Base spokesperson, that information has been present on the product page for more than a year, specifically since E3 2019: “The information was removed from the product profile because it was not correct,” he says.
In any case, it was a rumor that made a lot of sense. Currently, Sony has the rights to the Spider-Man movies and the latest Spider-Man game is also exclusive to PlayStation. In addition, Crystal Dynamics, responsible for an adventure to which they want to give their own personality, commented that there would be “surprises for PS4 users”.
We will leave doubts very soon, as there is less and less time for the Marvel Avengers team to reach consoles. Marvel’s Avengers will be released on September 4 for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia. Those who have reserved the game will be able to play it before by means of a beta. Later will come the versions for PS5 and Xbox Series X, which will be free for those who buy it on PS4 and Xbox One respectively.
