Insomniac’s Spider-Man finally has a release date. The PlayStation 4 exclusive will launch September 7th, and along with the announcement a Digital Deluxe edition and Collector’s Edition was detailed.

Originally announced at E3 2016, Spider-Man is Insomniac’s first foray into a licensed game, as they’re best known for their original IPs, such as Spyro and Ratchet & Clank. With the development time and manpower dedicated to Spider-Man, it has assuredly received more than the average focus a licensed game may get.

In addition to the release date, two editions beyond the retail version of Spider-Man were announced. The Digital Deluxe will also include a series of post-launch DLC called, The City that Never Sleeps. The City That Never Sleeps will have three chapters that include a new mission, villains, suits, and more for Spider-Man. More details on what the DLC is exactly will be announced later.

The Spider-Man Collector’s Edition includes everything from the Deluxe Edition, with some added bonuses. In addition to the DLC, the Collector’s Edition will have a mini artbook, a custom steelbook, a white spider sticker, and a Spider-Man statue that has yet to be revealed. All we know now is that Spider-Man will be sat on top of something, which will be revealed later this year.

Of course, there are pre-order bonuses for purchasing Spider-Man early, which include the Spidey-Suit pack, featuring three suits for Spider-Man. The first is Spider-Punk, seen in the image above, with two more to be revealed later. Pre-orders will also get the Spider-Drone gadget, a PSN Avatar, a PS4 theme, and “extra skill points to unlock faster web-swinging sooner.”

For those looking to learn more about Insomniac’s Spider-Man, Game Informer released a short trailer of their upcoming exclusive coverage of the game, which shows off some of the gameplay.

With developer interviews and other announcements sure to hit the news throughout this month, expect to hear a lot more about Spider-Man before its September 7th release date.
