We recently talked about how Spiderman might be getting a Game Of The Year Version. Well it has been confirmed by Sony. They announced it via a trailer.
The Game of the Year edition of Insomniac Games’ Spiderman is set to arrive today. It will offer the base game plus The City That Never Sleeps DLC extension that followed its launch one year ago.
Marvel’s Spiderman: Game of the Year Edition will cost you $39.99. It is available through the PlayStation Store and other retailers. The City That Never Sleeps, a three-chapter expansion that launched a month after the main game is still $24.99. But it is only available for those who already have the base game.
Should you buy the Game of the Year Edition?
Well yes, and no. Depends on a lot of factors. Do you already have the original game and the expansion? If yes, then you shouldn’t, unless you are a collector and just want a Game of the Year Edition. If no, then you should definitely get it.
The Game of the Year edition will cost you nearly half the price of Spiderman’s original digital deluxe edition. It too has the game and the DLC. If you haven’t played Spiderman, you definitely should. It’s story was very interesting and well done.
The gameplay and the webswinging, however, was where it was actually at. The game is a PlayStation 4 exclusive and was launched on Sept. 7, 2018. After that The City That Never Sleeps followed with its first chapter on Oct. 23, 2018. The DLC adds new missions and challenges, plus nine more Spidey costumes.
Sony recently announced that it would buy Insomniac, which also made the PlayStation-exclusive franchises Ratchet & Clank and Resistance. In a news release announcing the acquisition, Sony said Marvel’s Spiderman had sold more than 13.2 million copies worldwide as of July 28.
This has cemented Spiderman 2’s fate. We definitely know that there will be a Spiderman 2, considering the success of Spiderman. Sony’s acquisition of Insomniac means Spiderman 2 will definitely be a PlayStation exclusive.
And since PlayStation 5 will probably be out by that time, there’s a fair chance you’ll play the next game on PlayStation 5.
In the meanwhile, if you want to scratch that Marvel itch, Marvel’s Avengers will be released next year.
