In case you missed it, Spider-Man will be an exclusive PlayStation character on Marvel’s Avengers. The speeches of developer Crystal Dynamics have started to detail their plans after the title started, and that includes new heroes like Hawkeye and Spider-Man. While details are relatively scarce as to how exactly the heroes will be introduced after the start of the video game, the fact that Spider-Man is an exclusive hero raises even more questions – and Crystal Dynamics offered some new details on how it fits into Marvel’s Avengers in a recent interview.
“Without clearly giving any spoilers away,” Shaun Escayg, creative director for Marvel̵7;s Avengers, when asked if the team would be limited to portraying the character because of its PlayStation franchise, “the window where you will see our version of Spider-Man will be inserted into our story – and I should definitely jump about this because I can You will talk to him – but just know that this Spider-Man is our Spider-Man and will be in our history, will fit into that world with what happened [to them during] One day, between then and now – even [with] the envious who support him and how he belongs to this world and how long he has lived in this world “.
“Also, to clarify, Spider-Man is in addition to the bow and the progression of the main story,” added Vince Napoli, the leading fighting stylist for Marvel’s Avengers. “There was no exchange or anything else – we got our plan, we got our heroes coming, the stories, the challenges and the escalation of the game we planned – it’s going on. And then above all those things, we have also Spider-Man now, and weave it [the story] is the key. There is no exchange or change of anything to fix it – it has to fit within the massive plan and all those things we have already got. [Spider-Man] is like a cherry on top, but does not affect or change [the story] in any way “
Here is the official description for Marvel’s Avengers video game, if you are not somewhat familiar:
