Spider-Man PS4 – NEW GAMEPLAY E3 2018
Spider-Man debuted some more gameplay at E3 this year at Sony’s conference.
The game showed off a massive brawl in a prison where Electro is breaking Spider-Man’s worst enemies out.
So we get to see Peter Parker’s various moves, gadgets, combat moves and more, all whilst seeing the likes of Vulture, Rhino, Electro, Mr Negative and Scorpion jumping in to beat several shades of snot out of the character.
You can see the trailer in action below.
Spider-Man PS4 – Overview
Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
Developer: Insomniac Games
Release Date: 2018
Spider-Man PS4 – What we know so far
Spider-Man, which is a PS4 exclusive, currently doesn’t have a release date beyond 2018 and has been in development for the console for a while.
Insomniac debuted their first gameplay trailer in the summer at E3, and so far it looks amazing, but as with their reveal trailer, Insomniac has only used the 4K capable PS4 Pro to show off the footage.
This has lead many excited fans to become sceptical about how the game might look when it comes to the original PS4.
Insomniac has been asked over Twitter for a comparison between the PS4 slim and PS4 Pro, and they said: “the game still looks and runs amazing on standard / slim PS4.”
Insomniac also said “if you want a comparison, Ratchet & Clank should give you an idea”.
Spider-Man PS4 – Release Date
So far, we only have the very vague ‘2018’ release date for the Spider-Man game on PS4, with Sony once inferring that the game would be released in the first half of the year.
As it stands, we haven’t heard any more information about the game’s release date, and Sony has God of War and Detroit: Become Human listed for its Q2 releases so far – meaning we’re unlike to see Spider-Man compete with either (which launch in April and May, respectively.)
Sony rarely releases triple-A games in June, so seeing Spider-Man before July, at this point, seems unlikely. We’ll keep you up to date with more information as it becomes available.
Spider-Man PS4 – Story
The PS4 Spider-Man games takes place around a Peter Parker who is 23 years old and interning at a laboratory while about to graduate from college.
Insomniac throws you into the game as you explore a hero that has been Spider-Man for eight years and has settled into his role as protector of New York City.
Early in the game’s story, Spider-Man defeats Wilson Fisk and after toppling the Kingpin, a new gang emerges known as the Inner Demons who are now taking over Fisk’s territory.
While fending off the Inner Demons from an old Fisk operation, Peter learns that Martin Li, one of New York’s most prominent philanthropists, leads the Inner Demons under his alter-ego Mister Negative.
Things get thrown into peril when Parker learns his Aunt May is under Li’s employ – this is the first big personal/hero dilemma Parker will face in the player’s journey through the game.
Spider-Man PS4 – Characters
We already know we’ll be seeing Peter Parker in the game, taking on the role of the ‘main’ Spider-Man, but Insomniac has also confirmed we’ll be seeing Miles Morales (the ‘Ultimate’ universe version of Spider-Man) enter the fray too.
The game will also boast an impressive rogues gallery, too. In an interview Daily Star Online conducted with Insomniac’s Creative Director Bryan Intihar, the studio confirmed we can expect to see quite a few villains.
“I will say that when we started the project I was like ‘I want that villain, that character and this how do we make this work’ – I sent it to the lead writer Jon Paquette and I was like ‘make all these guys work, make them work'” he told us.
“From a narrative standpoint and how can we challenge or involve Peter in a way, and how does that relationship tie in with him. The magic happens when you take Peters world and Spider-Man’s world and collide them.
“There’s a reason why he says Martin Lee when he sees Mr Negative. Peter knows Martin Lee, Martin Lee runs the food shelters where Aunt May works. So there’s one reason why we chose him, we can bring those two worlds together, that’s the philosophy with the entire story. Those collisions.
“And then we’re looking at it from a design standpoint. How can it challenge the player, like with strategy? With Wilson Fisk’s thugs, Spider-Man can beat the crap out of those guys easy. We chose the Inner Demons because they have no negative energy, the energy they give their weapons require the player and Spider-Man to work.
“It’s the same for villains, we wanted to mix up how we do it. Really push and pull as much as possible.”
