After debuting the game over two years ago at E3 2016, Insomniac Games and Sony have released a brand new, story-driven trailer for Marvel’s Spider-Man.
The new footage puts an emphasis on the game’s story, in addition, the brand new gameplay footage spliced in. In the trailer, we see Peter Parker contemplating taking a vacation from playing Spider-Man after Wilson Fisk is being arrested for his crimes against the city.
You can check out the full teaser below:
Peter later visits Aunt May at a food bank, where he introduces her to fan fan-favorite Miles Morales, which hints that he’ll have a bigger role in the game than expected. Footage of a Norman Osborn re-election rally is spliced in, as we move onto what is the game’s presumably main villain, Mister Negative. We see Mister Negative and Spidey battling in various locations, including a subway.
Other important things to note include the fact that Mary Jane will be in the game and so will the Shocker, who was most recently seen in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Marvel’s Spider-Man currently doesn’t have a release date, though it will be released in the first half of 2018. The game is a Playstation 4 exclusive.
5 Superheroes That Deserve Their Own Video Game Universe
World building and universe building are not new. These writing techniques have been around for centuries, long before we even started writing our stories down. I always considered Beowulf to be the precursor to superheroes and comics. However, due to the overwhelming success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the CW DC Universe (or Arrowverse), it seems that the universal world building that has been in comics for three-quarters of a century has finally become a major storytelling point in both the film and TV worlds of superheroes.
Between Rocksteady’s Arkham Trilogy (Batman: Arkham Origins was developed by WB Games Montreal), Telltale Games’ Guardians of the Galaxy, Insomniac Games establishing that their Spider-Man game will be the anchor point for a new Spider-Man universe, and the announcement from earlier this year of a multi-year, multi-game deal between Marvel and developer/publisher Square Enix it seems like the video games will be the next place where sprawling superhero stories will be told.
