A launch, Spider-Man will only become available to players on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 as an exclusive playable hero. Official sources have yet to announce if everyone's favorite web-slinger will be permanent or timed exclusive.

Given how Marvel's Spider-Man and Spider-Man: Miles Morales are exclusive to PlayStation consoles, there is little possibility of Spider-Man ever arriving for Google Stadia, Windows PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X versions of the game.

According to recent blog post, Spider-Man will join Earth's Mightiest Heroes in early 2021 and will make his debut via an in-game event. There will be unique challenges for him to take on and show off his incredible acrobatic abilities.

Just like other heroes within its roster, Marvel's Avengers to feature several suits and gameplay style to forge your own version of Spidey. Crystal Dynamics heavily focuses on overall fluidity of transition between combat and his movement.

In recent War Table livestream, upcoming superhero action-adventure game Marvel's Avengers have revealed dates for beta and post-launch hero ahead of September 4, 2020 global release on Google Stadia, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

For some time, there has been speculation of friendly-neighborhood web-slinger joining Earth's Mightiest Heroes at some point. One recent unofficial Reddit leak does claim that Spider-Man will show up swinging, for PlayStation consoles.

Whether or not their marketing copy was provided by official sources is yet to be confirmed. Base.com also has a listed release date of May 15, 2020, which is inaccurate at this point and has been rescheduled to Q4 2020 long ago.

In a prior announcement, publisher Square Enix revealed to have made a deal with PlayStation and promised to deliver surprise for PS4 players. Parent company Sony currently holds movie rights for Spider-Man and made a successful game.

PS4-exclusive title Marvel's Spider-Man has sold over 13 million copies worldwide to become best-selling super hero video game of all time. A spin-off sequel, Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales is set to launch later this year for PlayStation 5.

RELATED: Marvel's Avengers to Get Free Next-Gen Upgrade

By end of this year, developer Crystal Dynamics plans to release next-gen console version of Marvel's Avengers, in association with Eidos Montréal and Square Enix for all owner of the game on current-gen without any additional charge.

A major Marvel character like Amazing Spider-Man being a PlayStation-exclusive hero for Marvel's Avengers will not really motivate players on PC or Xbox platforms much to pick a copy at launch even if these rumors are even true after all.

Anthem Getting Loot Changes in 2.0 Update

BioWare will be introducing major loot changes for new version of Anthem in upcoming update 2.0.

Ever since launch, online multiplayer action role-playing game Anthem failed to live up to fan-expectation for its somewhat grindy campaign, lack of enemy variety, lackluster endgame activity and a shallow loot distribution system.

To salvage their precious work and bring players back to the game, developer BioWare and publisher Electronic Arts started working on a major overhaul via 2.0 update, which would attempt to create a rewarding loot experience for all.

Due to lack of content, player community abandoned Anthem within months and Bioware had to cancel their planned roadmap for a full revamp and ever since, there have been only a few minor updates of what they are working on.

In a latest official blog, lead developer and studio director Christian Dailey talks about essential loot changes for Anthem 2.0, including failing short at providing a good player experience and trying to reflect on their mistakes in future.

Anthem had a huge issue with guns where newly acquired weapons don't feel that special from what players already have. Whether it is your starter gun or some legendary pickup from endgame, amount of damage doesn't seem to vary at all.

Not only there will be plenty of loot in Anthem 2.0 but you will have good reasons to equip guns achieved from campaign. If you come across a particular gun that you really like, you can level that item up or modify it for future usage.

All the weaponry of your arsenal is getting some visual changes to make firearms from different factions more distinguishable. Whenever you shoot a specific enemy that carries loot, they will drop useful items that you can equip right away.

Although loot system upgrade may not be something revolutionary for ARPG players, Anthem is desperately in need for it. Even though many believed the game to be a lost cause, there is a chance for BioWare to bring it back to life after all.
