When will the Spider-Man Marvel’s Avengers PS5 exclusive content arrive?

The Spider-Man content update pack was actually promised before Marvel’s Avengers was even released on the PS4 back on August 14, 2020, but several delays have led to him being missing, despite the free content releases starring Hawkeye (Kate Bishop), Hawkeye (Clint Barton) and Black Panther (King T’Challa of Wakanda).

The Spider-Man Marvel’s Avengers PS5 exclusive content is now set to arrive some time before the end of Winter 2021.

Alongside the news that Spider-Man will arrive on PS4 and PS5 once again before the end of the year, Japanese owned developer Crystal Dynamics announced that the game would see end game raid content set in Wakanda added.

What’s the Wakanda raid in Marvel’s Avengers?

The Wakanda raid will help invested players to gather the best and rarest loot with greater ease. An important distinction made between the raid and the Super Adaptoid Omega-Level Threat endgame mission released previously is that there’s been a bit of a rebranding. Mostly because no one knows what an Omega-Level Threat mission is and people already call those things raids in the multiplayer RPGs that already exist.

Gear will also be reworked, and in the new system will be more like the infusion system from Destiny. That means you can get the best gear from a raid and combine it with your basic rubbish equipment to make the basic equipment better until it hits the new maximum cap.

The Avengers developers at Crystal Dynamics have been quietly reworking game systems and adding additional content since launch, and they’ve been generally listening to player feedback lately, which is cool for a game that a smaller developer might have already abandoned due to it’s smaller player count.

Hopefully Crystal Dynamics are rewarded for their efforts, as the Hawkeye and Black Panther: War for Wakanda DLC packs were basically two high quality sequels set in the same universe that were released for free. Marvel’s Avengers has had a rough launch, but if it can get to a similar spot to No Man’s Sky, Sea of Thieves or Destiny 2, in gamers hearts, then the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes should be just fine.
