MARVEL'S AVENGERS Gameplay Shows Spider-Man In Action...But There WON'T Be Any Story Content!

MARVEL'S AVENGERS Gameplay Shows Spider-Man In Action...But There WON'T Be Any Story Content!

We finally have gameplay footage from Marvel's Avengers showing Spider-Man in action, but there are certain restrictions...including the fact that there won't be story content featuring the wall-crawler.

On November 30, the PlayStation version of Marvel's Avengers will finally add Spider-Man. Unfortunately, the DLC could fall short of expectations, especially if the following video from IGN is any indication. The site confirms that rather than a short campaign with new missions, the "Great Power" story will be told through illustrated comic book-style cutscenes and audio logs. 

You get those by completing challenges, but Spidey is basically just a new character in the game. This is quite the departure from the Kate Bishop and Hawkeye DLC that featured proper cutscenes and story missions, not to mention the "War for Wakanda" expansion with Black Panther.

"Really that's a simple decision for us," says Avengers' Gameplay Director, Philippe Therien. "Spider-Man can play all the content, but then we release a piece of content that's good on all platforms. Really that was a decision that's been that way since the beginning."

"We want to spend our efforts on content that everyone can enjoy, so we chose to spend a lot of our energy on the Klaw raid that's coming up at the same time."

In other words, it sounds like Spider-Man was something they had to add for Sony, something the video below emphasises. In that, we get to see the wall-crawler in action and learn that web-slinging isn't that different to how it was in 2004's Spider-Man 2 video game. That's a disappointment, but if nothing else, the fighting does look like it does the iconic comic book character justice.
