Peter Parker, better known as Spider-Man, is coming to Marvel’s Avengers. Here’s all we know so far.
Marvel’s Avengers may have had a tough first few months, but Square Enix has impressive plans to support the game with new content, including new locations, enemies, and heroes. In fact, these updates are all intended as free extras for players.
Following Black Panther’s arrival in August, the next character we can expect is perhaps Marvel’s most famous – Spider-Man. While he’s coming at no extra charge, not all players will be able to suit up in the red and blue spandex as Peter Parker’s alter-ego will be a PlayStation exclusive. Sorry, PC and Xbox fans.
If you have a PS4 or a PS5, though, here’s all we know so far.
- Marvel’s Avengers Spider-Man Release Date
- With Great Power event
- Marvel’s Avengers Spider-Man Abilities
While Spidey was originally slated for this year, the shifting development timeline and roadmap had fans worried that he could be pushed to 2022.

Thankfully, his release date has finally been confirmed as November 30, 2021 – meaning we’re not far away.
Spider-Man will arrive alongside the ‘With Great Power‘ event, offering a story that unfolds through unlockable challenges within the Avengers Initiative mode. While it’s disappointing we won’t get a new campaign, here’s what we know, courtesy of a new blog post.
“Peter Parker uncovers AIM’s new plan to acquire technology that could make their Synthoid army unstoppable and total domination inevitable.”
“He must partner with the Avengers to stop this looming threat, and forms a tentative friendship with Ms. Marvel and Black Widow while keeping his identity hidden. As a Hero accustomed to working solo, he struggles with the new dynamics of working with a team. Will he join up full time with the Avengers, or stay independent in his fight against AIM?”
Spider-Man’s abilities are as follows:
Assault Heroic – Web Bomb
Spidey deals area-of-effect damage using an explosive web projectile. It also causes enemies to be hit by the “webbed” debuff, a new status effect that makes them easier to take down.
Support Heroic – Spider Drone
This drone attacks any enemies that get too close to it, again helping to debuff enemies. It can follow Spidey, or instead, go wandering on a set path.
Ultimate Heroic – Wrecking Ball
Spidey’s most powerful attack creates a huge ball of webbing, which the wall-crawler flings over his head and brings down on opponents.
As for traversal, Marvel’s Avengers’ version of Spider-Man can swing on a web.
So, there you have it – that’s everything you need to know about Spider-Man’s arrival to Marvel’s Avengers.
