PlayStation-owning followers have been trying ahead to having Spider-Man swing into Marvel’s Avengers since earlier than the sport’s launch, however sadly, it appears the DLC might not reside as much as expectations. According to a preview from IGN, the upcoming Spider-Man “With Nice Energy” occasion received’t embrace any conventional story missions ala earlier DLC that includes Hawkeye and Black Panther. As a substitute, you possibly can stay up for a collection of challenges, with some audio logs and static comic-book fashion “cutscenes” advancing the story.

On the very least, they need to have been sincere from the get go contemplating this was apparently their place proper from the start.
In the meantime, IGN has additionally launched first gameplay footage of Spider-Man in Marvel’s Avengers, and effectively, he appears to be like okay. Possibly if Insomniac’s Spider-Man video games didn’t exist I’d be extra excited, however they do, and Avengers Spidey doesn’t look practically as fluid or badass. You possibly can try the footage for your self, beneath.
