Marvel's Spider-Man: Game Of The Year Edition Listed On Amazon [Update]

The extremely good PS4 exclusive might be getting an expanded re-release.

5 Comments

Marvel's Spider-Man, Insomniac Games' excellent take on our favourite webcrawler, looks like it'll be getting a Game of the Year edition. A barebones listing on Amazon points towards a new retail version of the game. The page doesn't explicitly say it, but it's likely that this release, if it ends up being real, would contain the game's The City That Never Sleeps DLC. There is no release date or cover art as of yet. [Update: The Amazon listing has now been removed, though it's unclear if it's because it was erroneous or because it went live earlier than intended. We'll report back if or when we hear more.]

The combined file size of Marvel's Spider-Man and its DLC stretches past 70GB, so it's likely that the DLC would be available as a download code rather than being on the disc. The City That Never Sleeps was released as three parts post-launch: The Heist, Turf Wars, and Silver Linings, all of which were bundled together in a season pass. The game has received numerous updates and free costumes since launch, but it's unclear if this Game of the Year edition will be the same version currently available or whether it will carry some of these updates.

Marvel's Spider-Man was a huge sales success, and made our Game of the Year list for 2018. We also learned this week that Sony has acquired Insomniac Games, adding the studio to its stable of internal development teams.

fake news, it's that big because of patches, when a game gets patched, the old data is not deleted so it only adds up, the DLC alone is just 4/5 GB, they can easily make a new final mastercode with everything on disc

Man I really hope that the DLC is on a disc, and it’s not a lame code

Considering all the good news coming out of Insomniac’s camp as well as the fact that we are quickly approaching the last quarter of the year something like a GOTY edition only makes sense.

It also gives all those who have postponed everyone’s favorite wall crawler’s latest adventure a reason to jump on board and see what everyone else is talking about.
