The news comes during a bustling time for Marvel.
According to Skrebels, the release date is not the only crucial tidbit that is known. The box art is simple yet striking.
Even after developer Insomniac Games showed off an extended gameplay segment at E3 2017 previous year, it was still unclear if the game would be ready before the end of 2018. They told how easily The Spider-Man will be using webs, swinging around and perform in close combat by switching fast. The Standard Edition of the game will retail for $59.99. When Marvel Games went to Sony Interactive Entertainment to develop a new Spider-Man based game, we weren't so sure which developer would make the cut to make the game. Insomniac Games has made other PlayStation offerings such as "Resistance" and "Ratchet & Clank".

The showstopper is, of course, the Collector's Edition.
And a $149.99 (UK price TBA) physical collector's edition will include all of the above, along with a steelbook case, a mini artbook, and a Spider-Man statue.
Our first look at Spider-Man in 2018 comes in the form of a short and sweet new gameplay trailer.
As with most big releases nowadays, Spider-Man has several different editions.
What is encouraging about the release date is that it will not interfere with the release of Red Dead Redemption. While the Arkham series featured the brutality that players have come to expect from Batman, this game presents everyone's favorite webhead as having all the agility and superhuman ability that we have all come to expect from the character.
With Sony publishing the game, that didn't stop some fans from asking if it'll be coming out for the Xbox One. However, we do know that it will include Spider-Man crouched on top of something, but Insomniac Games haven't revealed what it is yet.
