Spider-Man PS4 Has MJ As Playable Character, 30FPS And No Microtransactions

Sorry Xbox fans, but it doesn't seem like Spider-Man on Xbox One will ever happen. Fans can expect Mister Negative to be a big part of the story, which Insomniac Games told Game Informer will overlap the worlds of Peter Parker and Spider-Man. You betcha, true believers - we've got both.

Some new footage has been released for Insomniac Games' upcoming PS4 exclusive, Spider-Man. Each chapter contains new missions, villains, characters, and more suits for Spider-Man. The full release date will be announced at 8 AM PT tomorrow when the digital version of Game Informer's May issue will become available. The 14-page feature will reveal new screenshots, concept art and details about including suit crafting and upgrade paths which will allow players to make combat more complex.

And a $149.99 (UK price TBA) physical collector's edition will include all of the above, along with a steelbook case, a mini artbook, and a Spider-Man statue. Unfortunately, Sony isn't revealing what that statue is today, instead saying that we'll have to wait until summer to find out. What could that be?

Finally, if you're going with a good old fashioned standard edition, Amazon Prime members can save 20% on the pre-order right here. The pre-order bonuses include three outfits, a Spider Drone Gadget, a Spider-Man PSN Avatar, Theme and 5 extra skill points. As for the game's release, all we now know is that it is slated to be coming sometime this year.

"Spider-man", due for release soon this year.

The game's post-launch DLC will come in the form of a three-part campaign called Marvel's Spider-Man: The City That Never Sleeps. For example, you'll get skill points and three alternate suits like a Spider-Punk suit while the other two in the special pack are now mysteries, an incentive for you to place your order, no doubt.
