Marvel's Spider-Man is a action-adventure game Released by Sony Interactive Entertainment for the PlayStation 4, based on the Marvel Comics superhero Spider-Man and developed by Insomniac Games.
Released worldwide on September 7, 2018, it's the first game developed by Insomniac. The game tells a new story about Spider-Man which isn't tied to movie, video game, or an existing comic book, and covers the Peter Parker and Spider-Man aspects of the character.
Spider-Man was well received upon release. Critics called it one of the greatest superhero games praising particularly the battle, its gameplay and mechanics, images, narrative, characterization, and design of New York City, though felt it lacked invention in its own open-world design. The game became a commercial success, selling 3.3 million copies in its first three days of release, and broke several sales documents.
Spider-Man includes a huge ensemble cast of characters in 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 skills to look after the citizens of New York City as the superhero Spider-Man. Eight years into his superhero career, Parker is now an skilled and masterful crime fighter, but struggles to balance his superhero and lives. He is assisted in his struggle by intrepid Daily Bugle reporter Mary Jane Watson (Laura Bailey), his ex-girlfriend, also NYPD Captain Cheap EXP farming Yuri Watanabe (Tara Platt). Parker is employed by his mentor and friend, the respected scientist Dr. Otto Octavius (William Salyers). Spider-Man's adventure brings him into contact with other personalities, 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. Fisk is sent to prison, but warns that he had been the sole person keeping order in the city. Fisk's lack gives rise to a supernaturally powered, demonic-mask sporting gang called the Demons who start dividing the city for the strong Mr. Side, who will corrupt individuals through his touch. 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--such as Parker's and Watson's childhood friend Harry Osborn (Scott Porter), who has disappeared on a lengthy European holiday, and anti-Spider-Man podcast host J. Jonah Jameson (Darin p Paul) have voice characters in the main game. The game includes several references to the Marvel Comics world, including the Wakandan Embassy, Avengers Tower, the Sanctum Sanctorum, Murdock & Nelson Attorneys at Law, Rand Corporation, and Alias Investigations.  Spider-Man co-creator Stan Lee cameos as a cook. The game's downloadable content features appearances by master-thief Black Cat (Erica Lindbeck) (who has a voice-only role in the primary game), and Hammerhead (Keith Silverstein), chief of the Maggia crime family.
