Marvel’s Avengers has been oddly quiet in regard to hype, but now that its betas are on the horizon everyone has suddenly become stoked for this superhero RPG. While there have been assurances from some platforms that it’s not the Destiny clone certain people fear, Xbox One and PC fans have been asking the following question: is Spider-Man coming to the Avengers game for Xbox One and PC? Here you’ll discover why the web-head is a PlayStation 4 exclusive.
Aside from just participating in the Marvel’s Avengers beta to try the game out before its eventual launch in September, another reason to play one of the free upcoming demos is to get the Hulk Smashers Pickaxe in Fortnite. The pre-order beta is coming for PS4 only this August 7th, but there will be a version for Sony loyalists next weekend, and there will also be a closed and open demo for other systems.
However, away from its many available betas throughout this month, here you’ll discover whether Spider-Man is coming to the game for Xbox One and PC.
Is Spider-Man a timed exclusive for the Avengers game on PS4?
No, Spider-Man has not been announced as a timed exclusive for the Avengers game on PS4.
Rather than a timed exclusive, Spider-Man has simply been announced as a PS4 exclusive which means it’s highly unlikely he’ll ever come to Xbox One, Series X, and PC.
This will be disappointing for many people and it is a shame that arguably Marvel’s Mickey Mouse is only available on one system.
Although the likes of Thor, Hulk, and Iron Man are all classic characters made fan-favourites because of the MCU, Spider-Man has always been Marvel’s most recognisable superhero.
The web-head is to Marvel what Batman is to DC, and it’s a shame that he’s not coming to Xbox One and PC.
Why isn’t Spider-Man coming to the Avengers game on Xbox One and PC?
Spider-Man is not coming to the Avengers game on Xbox One and PC because of the relationship between Sony and Marvel.
Sony has movie rights to the Spider-Man character, and this is why he is not coming to Xbox One and PC for the Avengers game, as well as why Insomniac’s adaptation is a PS4 exclusive.
Speaking to IGN Japan, Crystal Dynamics’ studio head, Scott Amos, said that the web-head will be the only platform exclusive character.
He also reiterated that Marvel’s Avengers has a lot of playable heroes so the absence of Spider-Man shouldn’t be too big of an issue.
While the above suggestion could ruffle some Xbox One and PC feathers, so too could Amos’ retort in which he said that “those who absolutely want to play as Spider-Man have the option to do so on PlayStation”.
It’s a messy situation and it’s completely understandable why Xbox and PC gamers are so irate.
