The cover of Marvel’s Avengers on PS4 will forever be a reminder of Spider-Man’s PlayStation exclusivity.
Marvel’s Avengers caused a bit of stir recently when Square Enix confirmed that Spider-Man is exclusive to the PS4 and PS5 versions.
This fact is now plastered on the game’s PS4 case, which ensures casual audiences, too, are aware that Spider-Man is exclusive. The game’s Australian cover was spotted on Amazon AU, and it confirms that Spider-Man will arrive sometime in 2021.
The sticker doesn’t feature an end date to the character’s exclusivity, which, though expected, is still disappointing to see. Often times, when exclusive content is involved, the sticker on the game’s cover would spill out when said content would come to other platforms. Final Fantasy 7 Remake, for instance, a game exclusive to PS4 for a year, indicates that on its cover.
Developer Crystal Dynamics has since confirmed that Spider-Man is the only console exclusive character in the game, though the studio’s explanation for why that decision was made in the first place is amusing in how little it actually says.
The second of three Marvel’s Avengers beta weekends ended last night, with the final weekend scheduled to kick off this Friday.
The full game releases September September 4 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
