Marvel's Spider-Man is an action-adventure game published based on the Marvel Comics superhero Spider-Man and developed by Insomniac Games.
Released worldwide on September 7, 2018, it's the first licensed game manufactured by Insomniac. The game tells a new story about Spider-Man that is not tied to movie, video game, or an present comic book, and covers both Peter Parker and aspects of the character.
Spider-Man was received upon launch. Critics called it one of the best superhero games praising mechanics , particularly the battle and its gameplay, images, narrative, characterization, and style of New York City, though believed it lacked innovation in its own design. The match became a commercial success, promoting 3.3 million copies in its first three days of launch, and bankrupt several sales documents.
Spider-Man features a large ensemble cast of characters from Spider-Man comics' history. Peter Parker (voiced by Yuri Lowenthal) is a 23-year old research assistant, who profits superhuman abilities after being bitten by a genetically-modified spider. Parker uses these abilities to look after the taxpayers of New York City as the superhero Spider-Man. Eight years into his superhero career, Parker is now an masterful and skilled crime fighter, but struggles to balance his superhero and individual lives. He is assisted in his fight by intrepid Daily Bugle reporter Mary Jane Watson (Laura Bailey), his ex-girlfriend, also NYPD Captain Yuri Watanabe (Tara Platt). Parker is employed by his mentor and friend, the respected scientist Dr. Otto Octavius (William Salyers). Spider-Man's experience brings him into contact with different characters, such as Miles Morales (Nadji Jeter) and his parents, NYPD Officer Jefferson Davis (Russell Richardson) and Rio Morales (Jacqueline Pinol), OsCorp CEO and New York mayor Norman Osborn (Mark Rolston), and Silver Sablinova (Nichole Elise), chief of the private military firm Sable International.
Spider-Man's mission to guard the city brings him into conflict with supervillains. The narrative opens with Spider-Man taking down his longtime foe Wilson Fisk (Travis Willingham), the Kingpin of crime in New York. Fisk is delivered to prison, but cautions that he was the only person maintaining order in the city. Fisk's lack gives rise to some supernaturally powered, demonic-mask sporting gang known as the Demons who begin carving up town for the strong Mr. Side, who will corrupt individuals through his Spiderman signature. Spider-Man should also face Electro (Josh Keaton), Rhino (Fred Tatasciore), Scorpion (Jason Spisak), Vulture (Dwight Schultz), Shocker (Dave B. Mitchell), Taskmaster (Brian Bloom), Screwball (Stephanie Lemelin), and Tombstone (Corey Jones).
Several other characters--including Parker's and Watson's childhood friend Harry Osborn (Scott Porter), who has disappeared on a long European holiday, and anti-Spider-Man podcast host J. Jonah Jameson (Darin de Paul) have voice roles in the major game. The game includes several references to the Marvel Comics world.  Spider-Man co-creator Stan Lee cameos as a cook. The match's downloadable content features appearances by master-thief Black Cat (Erica Lindbeck) (that has a voice-only function in the primary game), and Hammerhead (Keith Silverstein), leader of the Maggia crime family.
