Last year at E3, we learned that Insomniac Games was developing a new Spider-Man video game that would be far superior from previous Spidey games. Dubbed as Spider-Man PS4, the premise would feature Peter Parker as a more experienced web-slinger. The game will not be tied to Spider-Man: Homecoming starring Tom Holland and the story isn’t based on any particular comic book story as it will be completely its own thing.
While we got a teaser trailer last year, it’s been very quiet on the news front for Spider-Man PS4, despite the fact that it was set for a 2017 release. However, at this year’s E3, a new gameplay trailer was released as we get a closer look at the upcoming game that is now confirmed to come out sometime in 2018. You can watch the new trailer below.
The trailer reveals that the big bad of the game will be Martin Li a.k.a. Mister Negative who has only been referenced to in previous Spider-Man games. The biggest takeaway though is at the very end of the trailer where we get a quick cameo by Miles Morales. It remains to be seen whether or not Miles will play a larger role in the game.
“Starring one of the world’s most iconic Super Heroes, Spider-Man 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 unique environmental interactions, to new combat and cinematic blockbuster set pieces, it’s Spider-Man unlike any you’ve played before.”
Spider-Man PS4 is set to come out sometime in 2018.
5 Marvel Video Games We Would Love To See Get Made
The world of video games is no stranger to superheroes. There have been superhero games almost as long as there have been video games. They have had varying levels of quality and recently DC has been extremely successful with the Batman Arkham series as well as Injustice, but Marvel hasn’t had a game recently that has reached that level of success. Last week, Square Enix announced a new Avengers game that has the potential to be an original and fascinating new game, but there are still several games we would love to see tackled and some characters we would love to control in a new interactive environment on the newest console generation. So without much delay, here are 5 video games we would love to see get made.
