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."
