Yesterday, Sony dropped a bombshell when it announced that Spider-Man would be exclusive to PS4 and PS5 versions of Marvel’s Avengers. Though this version isn’t related to Marvel’s Spider-Man by Insomniac Games, it’s still a big deal and something to look forward to in 2021. Sony has since outlined “even more PlayStation advantages” for those gaming on the PS4 and PS5 versions.
Essentially, PlayStation players will receive exclusive access to a Legendary Outfit, Legendary Emote, Epic Takedown and nameplate for each new hero, including the starting six, for 30 days. If you have a PlayStation Plus subscription, then each post-launch hero, including Hawkeye, will receive a free cosmetic bundle containing a Rare Outfit, nameplate and 100 Credits. Last but not least, PlayStation Plus subscribers can avail of a free bundle for Ms. Marvel at launch.
Sony also confirmed that along with the beta being available first for pre-orders on PS4 from August 7th to 9th (with pre-loading starting on August 6th), PlayStation Plus won’t be needed for multiplayer. All in all, Sony has made out like a bandit with this deal. Marvel’s Avengers is slated to release on September 4th for Xbox One, PS4, PC and Google Stadia. It will launch for PS5 and Xbox Series X in Q4 2020.
