Good news Spidey fans! As expected, Insomniac Games has revealed when their exclusive Spider-Man game will be swinging onto the PlayStation 4. The news comes via this months issue of Game Informer magazine which reveals plenty of other details about the game, including the news that Spider-man will be releasing on the 7th of September 2018.
The game will see Peter Parker, aka Spider-Man, facing off against Mister Negative, who is in charge of the gang called Inner Demons. Last year the games Creative Director, Bryan Intihar, hinted that players will not only take control of Spidey himself but possibly Peter Parker and his love interest Mary Jane as well.
“It’s a very different experience to playing as Spider-Man, and it stays true to her character, in terms of her background that she’s a reporter for the Daily Bugle. It captures that feeling. Also, the other thing for us is that, even though we are creating a superhero world in the fantasy, we thought it’d be interesting to show what it’s like to be a character who doesn’t have superpowers, what it’s like to be that person in a superhero world, and actually control that character.”
The Game Informer article delves into more details regarding the game’s missions, combat and crafting options. Insomniac Games also revealed on the PlayStation Blog that the game will receive downloadable content titled “The City Never Sleeps” after the game releases. The three chapter series will include additional villains, quests and, of course, new costumes for Spidey to don.
The below trailer showcases some of the pre-order bonuses players will have access to when pre-ordering the game.
This has got to be one of the most anticipated games of 2018 and, with Insomniac Games having a great track record, it seems that this Spider-Man game might be the one we have always hoped for.
