Spider-Man PS4 Game's Release Date Confirmed For September

Does whatever a spider can.


Spider-Man is one of the most-anticipated PS4 exclusives of 2018, and now we know when the superhero game will launch. Your friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man will come to the console on September 7, 2018, Insomniac Games and Sony have announced.

Few other new details have been revealed about the game as yet, though the game's box art has been revealed--take a look at it below. Spider-Man was unveiled at E3 in 2016, and it will tell a completely new story that's not tied to any one movie or comic. It contains an open world to explore, and you can use your environment to your advantage by, for example, throwing nearby objects at enemies. Post-launch DLC and special editions will also be available and have just been detailed.
