A month ahead of the game’s launch, the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has rated Marvel’s Spider-Man as “T” for “Teen.” On its own, the “Teen” rating does not pack much weight. It’s doubtful that anyone expected the age rating to be anything else, given the source material.
However, in addition to providing a rating to stick on the front of a box, the ESRB also explained its decision. These details typically come in the form of a product summary of sorts. The rating for Marvel’s Spider-Man is no different.
On the ESRB page dedicated to Spider-Man’s rating, the board’s content descriptors list the following: Blood, Drug Reference, Language, Violence. The rating summary delves further into the decision.

After officially going gold, Marvel’s Spider-Man has been in the news frequently. The announcement of an elegant Spider-Man Sideshow figure, details on the absence of enemy scaling, and Insomniac developers revealing the pressure they feel to deliver what fans want have alleviated the pain of waiting for release day. Or maybe news of this nature has made the waiting worse. Regardless, the wait is almost at an end.
Marvel’s Spider-Man swings onto the PlayStation 4 on September 7, 2018.
