Future Revolution, the upcoming mobile game billed as “Marvel’s first open world RPG on mobile”, has finally revealed Spider-Man has a superhero playable at launch.

Spider-Man was teased back in March 2020 as one of the big name characters players would be able to get their hands on and its taken this long just to see spidey in action.

In the reveal trailer below we can see Spider-Man beating up on some Hydra henchmen in what appears to be a city run by the evil organisation.

Marvel Future Revolution is a game based on dimension hopping so we wouldn’t be surprised to see players taken to an alternate world where Hydra rules everything.

Spider-Man, strangely, is making us of electrical attacks along with his webs. Bioelectricity is usually something that we see Miles Morales make use of and not Peter Parker.

The gameplay we see here is decent and definitely looks good for a game made for mobile. Unfortunately we have the same nitpicks we’ve had for all reveals for this game: there’s no on-screen scontrols to give us a better idea about how this game plays.

There’s also no solid details about when and where we will be able to play Future Revolution. New details about the game have been dripping in slowly since March this year and we still have no idea about the launch window, supported devices, business model or anything else really.

It’s rather funny that this game has shown off Spider-Man first, beating out Marvel’s Avengers. The Avengers game from last year revealed Spider-Man as a PlayStation exclusive playable character back in August 2020 and we’ve heard next to nothing about it since.

Back to Future Revolution and developer Netmarble seems to prefer slowly drip feeding us character reveals instead as, over the weekend, Spider-Man wasn’t the only one to get the spotlight.

Star-Lord in Sakaar, Laufey and Maestro have all been shown off.
