The Spiderman franchise has a reputation for making a lot of money for the studios, but a new web-shooters game called Spiderman: Webshooters offers a chance to see just how much of a hit it’s made by going free for the first time.
With $2.99 per game download, the free-to-play version of the web-based shooter is a big hit with many players.
But what if it wasn’t the studio’s main source of income?
And how would this free-for-all game compare to a paid version?
“We don’t see any differences in terms of what the game actually costs,” said Rob Kowalczyk, president of publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment Canada, in an interview with The Globe and Mail.
Kowallczyk also said that the game will be free for everyone with an existing PlayStation Plus subscription, which lets players play online with their friends.
The games publisher did not respond to requests for comment.
Spiderman is the first Spiderman game since 2002 to be free-play, which is a move that’s made the franchise a huge success.
The series’ success is thanks in large part to the simple premise of using the web to shoot down bad guys.
It’s an appealing concept to new players and has led to many other games that use it as a way to spice up the action.
While a number of the game’s competitors, including Clash Royale, have gone free- for-all in recent years, Spiderman 2: The New Colossus has maintained its focus on the web.
“There’s no competition.
There’s no platform that’s been able to take advantage of it,” said Kowalkowski.
That said, a free-game version of Spiderman isn’t without its risks.
For one, the game isn’t even complete yet.
As of September 1, it’s still in its Early Access phase and it’s not entirely clear if there will be an official release.
That means it may not be the full game for quite some time, which could impact the quality of the final product.
A few developers are already looking at other free-games, including Super Mario Galaxy 2, a Nintendo game that also has a free version.
Other games with free-based versions are The Last of Us: Left Behind, a game that released on Xbox 360 that is still free-on-the-play.
It has been criticized for being too linear and lacking a multiplayer element, which makes it a bit of a disappointment to fans of the series.
But the game has become so popular, it has spawned a few other versions of it, including The Last Guardian and Dead Island.
“We have no plans at this time to make any further updates to this game,” said Ubisoft Canada vice president of game publishing, Rob Schiller, in a blog post announcing the new Spiderman.
The publisher did say that Spiderman was not the reason why it decided to make a free game.
“Spiderman was never the main reason behind our decision to make Spiderman Webshooter, as the SpiderMan franchise is far and away the best-selling video game franchise of all time,” Schiller wrote.
