AHHHH!!! AHHHH!!! NERDCITEMENT!!

Sorry. Thanks for letting me get that out of my system. It’s just hard to not be excited when one of the coolest new characters in comics gets added to a related mobile game so quickly.

What am I talking about? There’s a pretty big Spider-Man event underway in the comics called Spider-Verse, in which different versions of Spider-Man from different dimensions are all coming together to fight a common threat. And one of those Spider-Men – the most popular of the bunch so far – is none other than Gwen Stacy, aka Spider-Man’s long-time love interest who died at the hands of the Green Goblin way back in 1973.

And now Spider-Gwen is a playable character in Spider-Man Unlimited!

Much to our surprise, this isn’t even the item the latest update is built around – it’s merely a bonus. Gameloft’s first real update to Spider-Man Unlimited adds 25 new missions focused on Sandman, a Jack O’Lantern Halloween event, and a new environment based on New York City’s Highline.

In addition to Spider-Gwen, you’ll also get to play as Spider-Girl and Spider-Man 2099 – all of which is meant to pave the way for more Spider-Verse content soon.

What are you waiting for, webheads? If you’ve put this one on the shelf, it’s time to take it back off.
