There were reports recently that Sony might reveal details about a new Spider-Man game and the company went through with it at its E3 2017 press conference in Los Angeles. There’s a new Spider-Man game that’s being developed by Insomniac Games. We now know that this game is going to be a PlayStation 4 exclusive and that it’s going to be released next year.
The company had actually announced at the E3 2016 gaming convention that a new Spider-Man game was in the pipeline. It didn’t reveal much about it since then and now we’re getting the first proper trailer a year later.
Sony also revealed the first ever gameplay footage for the new Spider-Man game at its E3 2017 press conference. We get to see a glimpse of our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man taking down the villain Kingpin in a construction site.
Some gameplay dynamics have been revealed in the trailer as well, such as the ability to sneak around by webbing from point to another and also setting up traps that trap the bad guys in a lot of spiderwebs.
There will be an open-world element to the game as well in which players will be free to sling their way across the city. Quick-time events will have them capturing falling debris to protect citizens.
More information about the title will be revealed in the months to come. Sony has confirmed that the new Spider-Man game is a PlayStation 4 exclusive and that it’s going to be released at some point in 2018.
