Marvel's Avengers Spider-Man DLC: Everything We Know About The Wall-Crawler's Appearance

Marvel's Avengers has lofty plans for post-launch support, with all of its upcoming heroes and missions being released for free to all players – except for one.

That character is Spider-Man, arguably Marvel's most famous (and popular hero). While he'll be available for free, he'll only be appearing on PS4 and PS5 since Sony and Crystal Dynamics have agreed an exclusivity arrangement.

Still, if you're on one of those platforms, here's everything you need to know.

Release Date

In an interview with IGN, Crystal Dynamics Studio Head Scot Amos was asked about Spider-Man's arrival.

"I can tell you that, formally, officially, people are working on him right now," Amos explained.

"So it is still on our roadmap for the future."

Speaking of the game's roadmap, we now know Black Panther will be the next big addition to the game's roster with the War for Wakanda DLC.

Abilities

With his incredible athleticism, it's likely Spidey will be able to hold his own with enemies up close, with his Spider-Sense likely working as his blocking variant.

He's also likely to have ranged capabilities too, with his web slingers, but we'll update this as we know more.

In terms of traversal, it seems pretty obvious that Spider-Man will be able to swing from point to point, likely in a way that resembles Black Widow's grappling hook.

Will his abilities be enough to earn him a spot on our Tier List?

New Region

While Wakanda is apparently coming as part of Black Panther's DLC, could we go to Manhattan for Spidey's?

Time will tell, of course, but we're a little bored of the same Eastern Seaboard region.

Trailers

Alas, we don't have a trailer for the character yet, but as soon as we do, we'll add it here.
