PlayStation has the marketing deal for the upcoming Marvel's Avengers but there's even more to the partnership. Today, Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics revealed via PlayStation Blog that Spider-Man is exclusive to the PS4 and PS5 versions of the game. Spider-Man is set to release at some point in 2021.
All heroes added to Marvel's Avengers post-launch will be free through the post-game which is called, appropriately enough, the Avengers Initiative. The first addition to the roster is Hawkeye and like bow-wielding sharpshooter, Spider-Man will also be free. We'll have to see if there's any crossover skins or content with Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
The beta for Marvel's Avengers begins on August 7 for anyone who preordered the game on PS4 and it opens up to all users on all platforms on August 27.
Marvel's Avengers is currently set to release on September 4, 2020. It'll be available on PS4, PC and Xbox One. If you buy the PS4 or Xbox One version of the game, you'll get a free upgrade to the PS5 or Xbox Series X version respectively.
