Marvel's Spider-Man is a video game developed by Insomniac Games.

It is confirmed that the game will be a console exclusive, solely debuting on the PlayStation 4.

It was unveiled during Sony's press conference at E3 2016 and a look at the gameplay was revealed the following year.

This will be the first Spider-Man game that won't be developed by Activision.

This version of Spider-Man will appear in an upcoming Spider-Geddon event. The universe where this Spider-Man and other Marvel characters come from is designate as Earth-1048.

After this game, Insomniac Games will continue to work with Marvel to produce more Marvel games.


The game starts with Peter Parker hearing a police transmission on his phone regarding Wilson Fisk AKA Kingpin. Desperate to put him behind bars for good, Peter suits up as Spider-Man and rushes to Fisk tower (ignoring his past due rent), and after a hard fight, he finally gets Fisk arrested, but ruins his costume in the process.


Spider-Man will be able to freely roam around New York, similar to Spider-Man 3. Unlike Spider-Man 3, you will be able to interact with citizens.

It has some gameplay mechanics that were once appeared in all mostly previous Activision’s 3D Spider-Man games. However, some side or crime fighting missions like rescuing a baloon or pizza delivery from Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2 game won’t be in this game. The web swing button function is once again to have only 1 button much like all previous Spider-Man third person action games, excluding The Amazing Spider-Man 2 game which had 2 buttons of web swing inputs.

Players will also play as Peter during parts of the game. Not only that, Mary Jane and Miles Morales (pre-Ending) will be playable in stealth sections. They won’t be just a bystander, so players will even play as MJ and Miles for key moments.[1] Aside featuring Spider-Man’s rogues like Sinister Six (Dr. Octopus, Shocker, Rhino, Electro, Scorpion, Vulture), Silver Sable, Mister Negative, Tombstone, Norman Osborn and Venom (Harry Osborn incarnation), including Kingpin and Taskmaster, it also features many cameos and mentions from other Marvel Universe, such as Daredevil, Doctor Strange and The Avengers.
