PlayStation’s Spider-Man is coming to PC

This is a big one: Insomniac’s PlayStation-exclusive Spider-Man is coming to PC. Sony announced this latest PC port at its State of Play event on Thursday, with “Remastered” attached to its title.

Marvel’s Spider-Man arrived on PlayStation 4 in 2018 and was praised for getting the character’s movement and style right. It’s in rare company as a truly great comic book game alongside Batman: Arkham Asylum, and also the best-selling superhero game of all time, despite being a platform exclusive. Now a lot of PC gamers will be able to get their hands on it too. Here’s what I really want to know: How does the web sling feel on a mouse?

While several of Sony’s planned PC ports were teased in advance, or leaked into the Nvidia GeForce Now Database (opens in new tab), this is a surprise. Spider-Man is Sony Pictures’ most treasured character and box office cash cow, so if any Sony game was going to remain console exclusive, it looked like this would be it. Perhaps at this point Sony deems everything on the PS4 as fair game for a PC port – notably, the PS5 launch spin-off Spider-Man: Miles Morales isn’t included.

Coming out on August 12, 2022.
