Spider-Man will be rocking some new outfits when his PlayStation 4 game releases later this year, and one of them should look familiar to fans of the Marvel movies.
In a new teaser trailer released today, Insomniac Games revealed more of Spider-Man‘s pre-order bonus, a Spidey Suit pack with three different outfits. The first look, Spider-Punk, was unveiled when the game’s release date was first announced, and the third outfit has yet to be revealed, but today’s trailer showed off Spider-Man’s second look: the Iron Spider suit.
The timing of this reveal is no coincidence, since the Iron Spider suit bears a close resemblance to an outfit in Marvel’s upcoming movie, Avengers: Infinity War. With Infinity War releasing soon, the tie-in is definitely intentional, and emphasizes the collaborative efforts Sony Interactive Entertainment, Insomniac, Marvel Games, and Marvel Studios are putting in to Spider-Man.
“Getting the opportunity to work with Marvel Games and Marvel Studios on this was another dream come true on this project,” Insomniac Games community director James Stevenson wrote on PlayStation Blog. “Seeing Spider-Man on the big screen in the [Marvel Cinematic Universe] with his Iron Spider suit is something we are really excited about… We were given access to the actual CG asset from the upcoming film… to ensure that it was as true to the suit you’ll see at the cinema as possible.”
The final game will supposedly include many different suits for Spider-Man, drawing inspiration from the comics and films as well as adding in some completely original suits. Some of these suits add extra effects to the games. While these haven’t been detailed yet, the Spider-Punk outfit will let players “rock out with a guitar,” dealing damage to all nearby enemies. The Iron Spider suit also has a new ability, which Stevenson hinted we’ll see on-screen in Infinity War.
Avengers: Infinity War arrives in theaters on Friday, April 27th. Spider-Man releases exclusively on PlayStation 4 on September 7th.
