It’s fair to say that Spider-Man has been the most anticipated character coming to Marvel’s Avengers. Now, fans can finally see what the iconic hero will look like when he swings into the game.
As you might expect, our first look at Spider-Man comes in the form of an official trailer from Crystal Dynamics. The trailer gives a brief look at Spidey’s adventure within the game, but the biggest news has to do with the character’s look.
And if we’re being completely honest, Spidey’s design seems pretty conservative. Spider-Man is rocking his normal colors, and the only major design change seems to be some highly-visible seams in the blue parts of his outfit. While nobody was expecting the hero to look completely different, it seems a bit disappointing that they didn’t do anything more creative (like Insomniac Games did with the base costume in their Spider-Man game).
Then again, given the initial fan reaction to different Avengers designs when this game first debuted, we can’t really fault developers for playing it safe. And there will be new costumes to unlock for Spidey, so no fans are exactly “stuck” with this base costume.
If you’d like a better look at Spidey, the unlockable costumes, and his unique story in the game, all you have to do is tune into Crystal Dynamics’ Twitch channel for a special livestream today at 2 p.m. PT / 5 p.m. ET / 10 p.m. UK.
While Spider-Man is the main focus of this stream, you can also tune into the upcoming Marvel’s Avengers War Table livestream on Nov. 29 to learn more about the free update, raid, and impending changes to the game. The new content, including Spider-Man (who is exclusive to PlayStation), comes to Marvel’s Avengers one day later, on Nov. 30.
