Screen Shot 2016-06-13 at 8.48.07 PM

Marvel and Insomniac Games just unveiled the first teaser for a brand new Spider-Man video game for PS4 at E3 2016. You can check out the footage for the upcoming game below. As you can see, our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man is sporting a new suit.

Starring the world’s most iconic Super Hero, Spider-Man PS4 (working title) features the acrobatic abilities, improvisation and web-slinging that the wall-crawler is famous for, while also introducing elements never-before-seen in a Spider-Man game. From traversing with parkour and utilizing the environment, to new combat and blockbuster set pieces, it’s Spider-Man unlike any you’ve played before.

Marvel and Insomniac Games have teamed up to create a brand-new and authentic Spider-Man story. This isn’t the Spider-Man you’ve met before, or seen in a movie. This is an experienced Peter Parker who’s more masterful at fighting big crime in New York City. At the same time he’s struggling to balance his chaotic personal life and career while the fate of nine million New Yorkers rests upon his shoulders.

    Marvel finally started to get into gaming. Let’s see what they can do. DC has been dominating the space. The good folks at Rocksteady, WB Montreal, and NeatherRealm will be watching this very closely I’m assuming.

    QTE, QTE, Gameplay, DEFINITELY QTE… Hopefully we’ll see some more gameplay footage soon.
    Still, good on Marvel for finally reaching out to more competent developers to make games based on their licenses. I don’t remember any good Marvel game since the last MvC.

      You have no idea what you’re talking about.

      Sony got the rights to Spider-Man game in the Civil War, Spider-Man in the MCU agreement.

      If you knew who the Insomniac folks are, you would be very excited, no QTE whatsoever, go watch on youtube Sunset Overdrive gameplay, it was their last game.

      Horizon, God of War and Spider-Man will make me buy a Playstation 4 next year, and i’m a xbox guy.

        The rights Marvel sold to companies back in the day were for films, not video games. Most of the characters Marvel can’t use in their movies appeared in the different MvC titles in the years after they made the film rights’ deals and before the MCU deal with Sony. (and there hasn’t been a Fox MCU deal as of yet)

        That aside, I like Insomniac Games. I don’t know what made you think I didn’t. I just said a lot of the trailer looked like QTEs or in-engine cutscenes because the camera movement and animation seem very “directed”.

        • Maximillian Pegasus

          Marvel sold the Spider-Man game rights to Activision in the late 90’s. Late 2014 was when the Marvel/Sony agreement happened, and from the reports, Insomniac is making the game since 2014, the things are pointing towards that direction.

          You’re saying you like Insomniac, but doesn’t look like you know them very well, their gameplay is king on their game, it’s not their style to make a QTE game like God Of War, Ryse or The Order.

          Have you played Sunset Overdrive? that game feels amazing to play, you can cross the entire city without touching the ground, running on the walls, dashing in the air, grinding on the power cables(power cords/i don’t know what it’s called) on the concrete posts?! the game is also very fluid and cinematic, just like this trailer. I actually think quite a few scenes from that trailer are real gameplay.

            Obviously, the deal didn’t make him exclusive for use as in the movies, because he appears in other games as well.
            I haven’t played Sunset Overdrive because I never owned an Xbox (actually shifted more towards PC over the last couple of years) but I did play one of the Spyro games, most of the Ratchet & Clank titles and some Resistance, so I know them fairly well. I don’t think the game will actually be a QTE-fest. I just made that comment because a lot didn’t seem to me like actual gameplay and I wish debut trailers included more gameplay footage so I would have a better idea of what the game will be like.

  • Seb

    Was excited then saw it’s a bloody PS4 exclusive.

    • SAMURAI36

      Yeah, that’s because it’s Sony. They’re not gonna make content for their competitors to make money off of.

      • Maximillian Pegasus

        I wanted that on Xbox One, but Horizon, God of War and Spider-Man will make me buy a Playstation 4 next year.

    If you want to get pumped for this game, Go WATCH on youtube Sunset Overdrive gameplay NOW, it was Insomniac’s latest game.
