Today, Marvel dropped a new Spider-Man trailer — but it’s not the one you’re hoping for. No, instead of the highly-anticipated second trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021), the official Spider-Man trailer for the “Marvel’s Avengers” video game has been released.
Per one report about the new addition to “Marvel’s Avengers” gameplay:
Spider-Man is set to come to the game on November 30. Not only will the character be free like previous post-launch characters, but the new content made for the character’s introduction will also be free. The only thing players will need to pay for are the inevitable wide range of suits released as cosmetic DLC.
“Marvel’s Avengers” was recently the subject of a good bit of online controversy after the game’s developers, Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics, inked a deal with Microsoft’s Xbox platform — this made the “Marvel’s Avengers” game available on Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on multiple consoles, including Xbox One, Xbox S, Xbox X, and PC.
Following this agreement, the developers made the decision to sell various consumables, including XP and resource boosts, in a bid to allow new users to “play-to-win.” This angered long-time players who feel that the ability to pay to play is unfair.
The game, which was released in 2020, features a number of popular characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe Avengers franchise, including Bruce Banner/The Incredible Hulk, Steve Rogers/Captain America, Tony Stark/Iron Man, Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Thor, and more.
Despite the recent controversy, however, it seems that everyone is looking forward to the addition of Marvel’s friendly neighborhood super hero. You can watch the full trailer below:
