Marvel’s Spider-Man, Insomniac Games’ excellent take on our favourite webcrawler, looks like it’ll be getting a Game of the Year edition. A barebones listing on Amazon (UPDATE: the page has been removed) points towards a new retail version of the game. The page doesn’t explicitly say it, but it’s likely that this release (if it ends up being real) would contain the game’s The City That Never Sleeps DLC. There is no release date or cover art as of yet.
The combined file size of Marvel’s Spider-Man and its DLC stretches past 70GB, so it’s likely that the DLC would be available as a download code rather than being on the disc. The City That Never Sleeps was released as three parts post-launch: The Heist, Turf Wars, and Silver Linings, all of which were bundled together in a season pass. The game has received numerous updates and free costumes since launch, but it’s unclear if this Game of the Year edition will be the same version currently available or whether it will carry some of these updates.
Marvel’s Spider-Man was a huge sales success, and made our Game of the Year list for 2018. We also learned today that Sony has acquired Insomniac Games, adding them to their stable of internal development teams.
