Races and Species:






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 "Inner 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.


Voice cast









  • 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 videogame, 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, and a post from "ClarkG" suggests that Spider-Man should deliver pizza in his downtime.
  • 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 missles 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.
  • 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.
  • Spider-Man mentioned 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 is most likely based on the Breakout! story arc.
