Peter Parker is a 23-years-old college graduate, and has been Spider-Man for eight years. He's balancing his life between his superhero duties, and his job as a lab assistant for Otto Octavius at Octavius Industries.

Meanwhile, a new gang called the "Demons" arrive and commit crimes in New York. Their leader is philanthropist Martin Li, a.k.a. Mister Negative, who owns and operates F.E.A.S.T. homeless shelters, whom Aunt May happens to volunteer for.

  • No special notes.


  • Peter's bedroom post-it notes pile includes a reminder for Peter to respond to a job offer from "T.S." (most likely Tony Stark). Iron Man is also named in a crossword puzzle certain civilian NPCs can be seen trying to solve; the clue for the 6-Across answer being "Who is Ironman?." Stark's alter-ego is also mentioned in the bio for Otto Octavius together with Captain America.
  • The scene where Spider-Man lifts derby off civilians trapped in Fisk Tower was a homage to Amazing Spider-Man #33.
  • A statue of Lockjaw replaces the Charging Bull sculpture in the Financial District.
  • Despite Insomniac being a California-based company, the game's map features a building which acts as their headquarters.
  • The game's map contains a marriage proposal easter egg a fan named Tyler Schultz asked Insomniac Games to add. It was a theatre billboard in the West side of the Financial District which read "Maddie, will you marry me?" Unfortunately, Schultz's girlfriend broke up with him weeks before the game came out. The game's Art Director Jacinda Chew offered the modify the easter egg in a post-launch patch. While Schultz initially declined the offer, he later asked to replace the wedding proposal with the name of his grandmother, who had passed from cancer and helped ignite Schultz's passion for Spider-Man.[2]
  • The Firehouse, Hook & Ladder Company 8 fire station makes an appearance in the game's map. This building is popular for serving as the exterior of the headquarters for the titular team of the 1984 film Ghostbusters. The building features the graffiti of a ghost on its back.
  • The game features a location for the Auerbach Theatre. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe the Auerbach Theatrical Agency was a front for the Strategic Scientific Reserve.
  • Inside some of the randomized apartment interiors a shelf can be seen with Spider-Man action figures.
  • Uncle Ben's tombstone can be found in the cemetery at the North of the game's map.
  • The clock at the Trinity Church in the Financial District is stopped at 1:21, apparently repeating the easter egg referencing the issue of Gwen Stacy's death (Amazing Spider-Man #121) from The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
  • The "Thank You" Drawing and the Pizza Delivery Hat collectibles are references to two infamous aspects of the Spider-Man 2 video game, the random side-missions to rescue a kid's balloon and the pizza delivery side-quests, respectively. These two aspects of the Spider-Man 2 video game are also referenced in the in-game social media feed: A post from "Lado_Lucian" calls out Spider-Man for watching a kid's missing balloon float away, a post from "Darin_M" asks Spider-Man to find his son's balloon (with another user replying in disbelief wondering who asks Spider-Man to get a balloon), and a post from "ClarkG" suggests that Spider-Man should deliver pizza in his downtime. The pizza diliver side quests are again referenced by the pizzerias around Manhattan, which play those missions themes outside the shop.
  • Number codes present in the Failed Prototype and the Oscorp Visitor Pass collectibles reference issues of Amazing Spider-Man. TASM1965-31 (Amazing Spider-Man #31) and ASM14711964 (Amazing Spider-Man #14), respectively.
  • Using the game's Photo Mode, it's possible to catch a detail in the design of the missiles used by armed enemies. It includes the text "Guaranteed to kill Spiders."
  • Spider-Man's social media feed features a post from a user "MonsterCatcherGuy" referencing the AR mobile game Pokémon Go.
  • Since Spider-Man has a no-kill policy, thugs that are thrown off roofs during combat will be automatically transported to the nearest wall and appear webbed-up.
  • After Peter's suit is damaged during the game's introduction, he quips he wouldn't want people taking photos of his three chest hairs. The model for the secret Undies costume does feature only three hairs in Peter's chest.
  • The big white spider from Advanced Suit was heavily criticized after the first Marvel's Spider-Man trailer in 2016. The game producers joked with this by making NPCs on the game criticize it.
  • Two of the homeless people at F.E.A.S.T. can be overheard discussing what they'd do if they had powers. One states he'd be a TV star, and the other a wrestler, which were the earliest things Peter Parker did with his powers.
  • The criminals Niko and Roman from the "Spider-Man P.I." side-mission are a reference to Niko and Roman Bellic from Grand Theft Auto IV.
  • Stan Lee makes a cameo as the owner of the diner Mick's. He appears in the cutscene after the main story mission "Don't Touch the Art."
  • The "Back to School" mission features a cameo of internet personality Greg Miller, dressed in his "Shirtless Spider-Man" character.
  • In the "The One That Got Away" mission, Spider-Man mentions using his webbing and strength to stop a runaway train from the front of the train. This is a reference to a scene from the Spider-Man 2 film.
  • Electro causing a breakout in the Raft in "Out of the Frying Pan..." is most likely based on the Breakout! story arc.
  • Mary Jane's news report in the cutscene after the end of the "Out of the Frying Pan..." mission features a photo of Spider-Man swinging among protesters, homaging the cover to Amazing Spider-Man #68.
  • Spider-Man's Air Launch and Swing Kick animations are a homage to the character's two move sets in the Marvel vs. Capcom series.
  • When Sable Agents respond to Spider-Man fighting criminals, Spider-Man reacts by referencing a line from Milkshake, with "milkshake" exchanged for "web."
  • If Spider-Man is spotted by a Sable lookout, he'll wonder if their spotlight is meant to attract his attention, and suggests adding a spider logo to it. He immediately shuts down the idea, pointing out they'd get sued, referencing Batman's Bat-Signal.
  • When MJ sneaks into Norman Osborn's penthouse, she will find a prototype helmet on a desk. Its schematics feature the serial number "ASM 14," a reference to Amazing Spider-Man #14, the issue in which the Green Goblin debuted.
  • In Osborn's penthouse, a framed magazine spread about young Norman Osborn and Otto Octavius can be found. Their poses in the article's image is a homage to a photo of Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak working at Atari.
  • Taskmaster can be found in the distance observing Spider-Man during each of his tests. If the player gets too close to Taskmaster, the villain sets off a smoke bomb and disappears.
  • A blender in the kitchen at F.E.A.S.T. has a warning sticker humorously advising against putting one's hand into the machine. The warning even scolds the player for wasting time reading the entirety of the sticker's text.
  • Following the game's ending, May Parker's gravestone appears next to Ben's in a graveyard in Harlem, and a commemorative plate in her memory appears at the entrance of F.E.A.S.T..
  • When the Fake Spider-Man retires from vigilantism, he exclaims "Spider-Man No More!", referencing the story arc of the same name.
  • Spider-Man mentions several times the prospect of being cloned, referencing the Clone Saga.
  • One of Peter's rejected spider logos resembles the Superman Symbol.
  • During a Maggia car chase, Spider-Man references It's Raining Men.
  • In The Heist DLC, Times Square includes a memorial for the victims of Devil's Breath.
  • The achievement for completing The Heist DLC is called "Bye Felicia," a reference to a meme of the same name.
