Marvel’s Avengers’ senior producer has confirmed that the upcoming exclusive Spider-Man DLC will feature its unique story mission and cutscenes.
Developer Crystal Dynamics has revealed that the upcoming Spider-Man DLC for Marvel’s Avengers’ character roster will feature its unique story mission and cutscenes. The studio shared its Spider-Man plans during the summer of 2020 and revealed that the character would launch as a PlayStation exclusive. However, no new details arrived until Marvel’s Avengers roadmap earlier this month, which reconfirmed that Spider-Man will be arriving this fall/winter.
Following a rough launch and its player count dropping tremendously, Marvel’s Avengers faced several post-launch content delays. This turmoil began with the primary two new characters being pushed back, followed by Crystal Dynamics’ rendition of Spider-Man being delayed throughout the year with no re-emergence. With only a couple of months left within the year and no new information, the developers reconfirmed the playable hero with a “Hero Event” on an updated roadmap for Marvel’s Avengers in September, a touch quite a year after the web-slinger’s original teaser.
As reported by MP1st (via GamesRadar), Crystal Dynamics has confirmed that Spider-Man will be receiving his story mission, with cutscenes, when he becomes a playable hero for PlayStation consoles at the top of the year. Within the official Marvel’s Avengers Discord, senior producer Dan Matlack answered a couple of fan questions on upcoming Marvel’s Avengers content. When asked if Spider-Man might have a story, he replied, “Spider-Man is what we call an ‘event’ so he will have cutscenes and a storey needless to say .” during a separate comment, Matlack also confirmed that the anticipated Marvel’s Avengers Klaw Raid would feature familiar environments and would be a “unique” experience for players.
Though it had a rough first year, Marvel’s Avengers’ latest expansion, War for Wakanda, has been seen as a revival for the title. The DLC is centred around the Black Panther, and it introduces a replacement playable region, a replacement villain, and an expanded narrative that ties into Marvel’s Avengers’ main storyline. Even though it’s unavailable for players on the Xbox, PC, and Stadia, fans believe that the upcoming exclusive Spider-Man DLC will play an identical role that would cause a further success for Marvel’s Avengers.
While the studio’s lengthy silence may need to be distressing, this update will hopefully function some relief for fans. Not only is Spider-Man coming as an addition to Marvel’s Avengers, but the playable superhero is additionally swinging onto PlayStation consoles with an actual event that’s complete with its own story and narrative cutscenes sometime this year.
Marvel’s Avengers are on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC, and Google Stadia.
