Square Enix has seemingly updated the box art for Marvel's Avengers to highlight how the game will have Spider-Man as an exclusive character on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.

The new box art was spotted by VGC, and you can see it on Amazon Australia's website.

The Spider-Man exclusivity is just the latest part of Square Enix's deal with Sony to give PlayStation owners preferential treatment. PS4 players got early access to the beta and they will also receive other cosmetics that won't be available on Xbox and PC, at least not right away.

Spider-Man will come to Marvel's Avengers on PS4 and PS5 sometime after launch, though an exact date has not been announced. Developer Crystal Dynamics has since clarified that Spider-Man will be the only console exclusive character, so don't expect a match on Xbox or PC.

Spider-Man is the second post-launch DLC confirmed for Marvel's Avengers but the first one made exclusive to one console family. He joins Hawkeye, who will also accompany The Avengers sometime after the game drops this September for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Marvel's Avengers will be released on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X further down the road.
