Polygon reports that Titan Books is set to work with Marvel and Insomniac Games on two tie-in books for the upcoming PS4 Spider-Man game. The first is a novel called Spider-Man: Hostile Takeover, which will be a prequel to the game. It will be written by David Liss.

Titan said in a statement: “Leading directly into the beginning of the game, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Hostile Takeover features some of Spidey’s most famous friends and foes, including the Shocker, Echo, the Blood Spider, J. Jonah Jameson, Mary Jane Watson, and Wilson Fisk – the Kingpin.

The release promises that the book will reveal “Kingpin’s plan to gain an iron grip on New York City” and set up character relationships and story details that will carry over into the game.

Titan also plans to release a new art book called Marvel’s Spider-Man: The Art of the Game, written by Paul Davies.

Here’s a synopsis: Packed with never-before- seen images of Spider-Man, his costume and equipment, the Marvel version of his hometown New York, and the deadly villains he battles, fans will learn about every facet of the game, from the initial designs, blueprints, and the breathtaking final concepts.

Spider-Man: Hostile Takeover arrives on August 21, 2018. The game hits on September 7. Spider-Man: The Art of the Game arrives four days later on September 11.
