There’s no doubt that Marvel’s Spider-Man is one of the most anticipated games of 2018 though we haven’t heard too much about the game since last seeing it at Paris Games Week last year. Luckily, it seems like we’re about to receive a lot of new info, and most notably, a release date in the very near future.

Game Informer finally broke some of the silence surrounding Spider-Man earlier today when they revealed that the Insomniac Games title would be gracing the cover of their May issue. While there’s sure to be a lot revealed in this cover story, perhaps the biggest piece of news is in regards to that of a release date, which Insomniac Games has now confirmed will be divulged when the full issue releases tomorrow.

After the reveal of the cover story, fans began taking to Twitter to ask the Insomniac Games account about the release date for Spider-Man and if it was still scheduled to arrive this year. Insomniac Games did these fans one better and outright confirmed when we will know the game’s launch date.

Insomniac received multiple queries about the release date for Spider-Man and continued responding to every comment reaffirming that we will learn when the game launches tomorrow.

For those now patiently waiting on the edge of their seat to learn of this news, you should know the release date come 11:00 AM EST. It is at this time that Game Informer will push live the digital version of their May issue.

While Spider-Man has still not been given a strict release window other than 2018, it’ll be interesting to see if it launches before the end of June, as Sony’s Shawn Layden may have hinted last year that it was scheduled to arrive during the first half of 2018. It’s been a quite a bit of time since this transpired though, so it’s hard to say whether or not this will turn out to be true or not.

In the meantime until tomorrow, feel free to check out the new trailer for Game Informer’s slate of coverage for Spider-Man as it includes a few quick glimpses of new gameplay. Most notably, the web-slinging mechanics look incredible and make me want this game sooner rather than later. You can find that video at the bottom of the page.

It’s definitely an exciting time for Spider fans and those who have been patiently waiting for a release date since the game’s original reveal at E3 2016. Not much longer now, true believers. If you simply can’t wait for the release date, you can pre-order Marvel’s Spider-Man for PS4 on Amazon.
