Marvel’s Spider-Man has been the talk of the town today as loads of new images and a September release date were finally divulged earlier this morning. Now, we have learned even further information thanks to the game’s Creative Director Bryan Intihar.

In a video over at Game Informer, Intihar was asked over 100 questions all about Spider-Man. Many of this inquiries were in jest but Intihar also happened to give us a fair amount of new information about Spider-Man in the process.

Perhaps most notable to many fans in this day and age would be the question of whether or not Spider-Man would feature any sort of microtransactions. To the delight of what’s sure to be many, Intihar confirmed that they will not be present by firmly saying:

“Hell no.”

When questioned about framerate Intihar also confirmed that Spider-Man will not have any differences between the standard PS4 and PS4 Pro. He stated:

“We’re locked at 30 both ways.”

There are a multitude of other specifics that Intihar confirms in this video. Some of them include the fact that Spider-Man will level up in the game along with saying that collectibles will also be scattered about. Intihar also confirms that Mary Jane will indeed be a playable character as we briefly saw in the Paris Games Week trailer.

In addition, Intihar says that the story of Spider-Man will take place over the course of a few weeks and that those looking to get around New York City via fast travel will have to take the subway to do so. Perhaps most unfortunately for Spider-Man 2 fans, Intihar said that there will be no children that are in need of their balloons to be saved.

None of these details are necessarily groundbreaking but they surely help answer many small questions that fans have had since the game’s original reveal. We’ll likely continue to learn more about Spider-Man in the coming days and weeks, so there’s still plenty to be excited about.

If you didn’t already know, Marvel’s Spider-Man is slated to release later this year on September 7, exclusively on PS4. If you’re looking to pre-order the game, you can do so right now.
