Specifically, the box art – spotted on Amazon Australia – now features a sticker promoting the exclusive post-release Spider-Man character, which was announced earlier this month for the PlayStation versions.
Asked how Xbox and PC gamers who want to play as Spider-Man should feel, studio head Scot Amos told press earlier this month that they “have the option to do so on PlayStation.”
“I would say that Marvel’s Avengers has a lot of heroes, and with the scope and the breadth of this game and this universe, players are going to have their hands full with a lot to play with,” he said.
“This is an opportunity to celebrate [Spider-Man’s addition] uniquely for those players [on PlayStation] because of that relationship, but I think there’s so much of a world for people to explore, I wouldn’t look at that as a reason not to embrace it the opportunity [to add Spider-Man on PS4 and PS5]. I would say, look at all this stuff you get to play with.
“And for those players who absolutely want to play as Spider-Man, you have the option to do so on PlayStation.”
Marvel’s Avengers is set to release on September 4 for current-gen consoles and PC. Avengers is also set to launch on next-generation consoles later this year and owners of the current-gen version will be able to upgrade at no additional cost.
