First teased through a reveal trailer at E3 2016, Spider-Man generated a ton of hype and has been on the radar of many video game fans as well as comic book fans. The trailer unveils a new look for your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, as his new suit has a white spider logo and white accents on top of the iconic red and blue look.

Along with this new look, information about pre-order bonuses and the post-launch DLC series, Marvel’s Spider-Man: The City That Never Sleeps, have been revealed. The pre-order bonus comes with three alternate suits for the wall-crawler, including two that have yet to be shown (one coming soon and the other to be reveled sometime in July) and one called the Spider-Punk suit. The Spider-Punk suit has a ripped jean jacket to look like a vest, and Spidey is sporting red spikes on his head to give that old-school punk rock look.

For those true Spidey fanatics who have awaited this release with bated breath, the game will also be offered as a Collector’s Edition, which includes digital DLC, a Steelbook case, an artbook, and a statue of Spider-Man perched atop an as-yet unnamed building.

The trailer reveals just enough to get us excited all over again for this new addition to the Spider-Man world.
