Since the reveal of Spider-Man for Marvel’s Avengers the content has been saturated with a mixed reception. The most significant being its exclusive nature to PlayStation, the months of delay, and now the gameplay. Which has been revealed and shows a less appealing version of Insomniac’s combat system.

First off, Spider-Man does not come with story missions but just is included in the game. With the only story being through audio files and text messages.

As for combat, it’s clear from the gameplay that it was fashioned after Marvel’s Avengers with Spider-Man using quick dodges and strikes. The 3 heroic abilities include:

  • Web Bomb – AOE damage that immobilizes enemies
  • Spider-Drone – Patrol AI companion that can roam the area or follow Spider-Man
  • The Wrecking Ball – A giant web ball that slams on the floor

Due to the limited-level design, Spider-Man’s swinging is often hindered. This also includes wall-running, where the invisible wall blocks creatively. From looking at the gameplay it truly looks like a poorer version that nerfs Spider-Man’s mobility.

Marvel’s Avengers is now available for PS4, PS5, Xbox Series, Xbox One, and PC. Spider-Man will launch for PlayStation versions only this November 30th.
