IGN can exclusively reveal the introductory trailer for Spider-Man in Marvel’s Avengers, which shows off Crystal Dynamics’ take on Peter Parker for the first time.
The trailer is a cinematic rather than straight gameplay, but gives us an idea of Spider-Man’s acrobatic moveset, web shooting abilities, and all but confirms web-swinging and wall-crawling across the game’s environments:
The cinematic sees Peter ambushing and taking on a group of A.I.M. soldiers that have taken hostages, before being joined by the entire Avengers line-up. Square Enix hasn’t yet confirmed who is providing the voice of Peter Parker in this incarnation of the character.
Arriving as part of the With Great Power expansion for PlayStation owners of the game – due for release on November 30 – Spider-Man will be the 9th playable hero in the multiplayer game. The
expansion sees Peter Parker discover A.I.M. plans to make its robot army invincible, before joining forces with the Avengers.
Spider-Man was announced as a PlayStation-exclusive character before release, but it’s been a very long wait for the character to be added, with Crystal Dynamics repeatedly reconfirming that he would arrive.
