Coming exclusively to PS4 from the geniuses at Insomniac Games
From a personal and professional standpoint, this is a dream come true. I’ve been an avid Marvel fan all my life. When I first learned Insomniac was approached by our long-time friends and collaborators at Sony Interactive Entertainment with the opportunity to create a blockbuster Spider-Man console game experience, I practically ran into Ted’s office professing my passion for Spider-Man – along with a desire to serve as creative director.
Fortunately, there are many more longtime fans and professional admirers of Marvel at Insomniac. From comics to films and TV, Marvel has a stellar reputation for unique characters and storytelling filled with personality and humor. Those are tenets we value deeply in our own craft.
From our first meeting, Marvel, Spider-Man and Insomniac have felt like a match made in heaven. So much so that for the first time in Insomniac’s 22-year history, we’re working on an IP that didn’t originate in-house. We love building big games, with incredible gameplay, deep stories, and beautiful graphics. Spider-Man is one of the most iconic and well-known characters in the world, and we’re thrilled to be given the responsibility to create a brand-new, authentic Spider-Man story.
Nope, this isn’t the same Spider-Man you’ve met before, nor is our game based on the upcoming movie. This is a more seasoned Peter Parker who’s more masterful at fighting big crime in New York City. At the same time, he’s struggling to balance his absurdly chaotic personal life and career. All while nine million New Yorkers depend on him for their safety… no pressure indeed.
This collaboration also allows us to quickly return to action developing on PS4. Having released Ratchet & Clank, we feel confident in our ability to create a showpiece for the console. And we’re downright giddy bringing Spidey’s acrobatic abilities, improvisation, and web-slinging to life. But we also want to introduce new elements that players have never experienced with Spider-Man, ranging from traversing with parkour and utilising the environment, to new combat and blockbuster set-pieces.
We can’t wait to share more about our Spider-Man game in the months to come. For all the latest, follow Insomniac Games on Twitter or Like us on Facebook.
Never been much of a super hero fan, but damn i do love spiderman and insomniac.
@LordRoss you might like this!
I do like it.
It's great news. Although to be honest I did enjoy Spiderman games years ago anyway. Before teh days of Rocksteadys Batman. I can't be the only one? lol.@davum
I remember loving the psone Spidermans, not played since@LordRoss
Anyone that actually knows me at all can prob guess this is the game of E3 for me and with any luck it will be spiderman arkham and spidey will get the game he deserves.
Like utio I dunno about the suit the white looks odd, it would have been fine if that spider was black tbh but I get the feeling when I buy the inevitable season pass ill get a new costume.
Sony won! I haven't looked at anything else yet, but; they've won!
Note yo the devs.
NAIL THE WEB SWINGING
Couple of gifs on twitter
Not gameplay I reckon. Still, Insomnia will do a great job I bet.@davum
yeah i think its gameplay.
mind you i would not be shocked to discover its gameplay running on a neo unit@JynXten
All those cars and all thos people and that lighting though. If it is, then wow.@JynXten
Heres a couple of bullet points about the game, from dualshockers
its a hard one to call.
the eyes are clearly of the same kind of design to the film with the zoom function.
the new suit is totally influenced by peters clone ben reilly's spider suit (which i was a fan of)
the only time i have ever seen a white spider is on black suit and its a nice contrast
the new suit in the comics has a glowing spider
so it slmost seems like they have taken their design ideas from all of the above and this is what they have come up with.
not going to lie i would have rather had a black spider but then it would have pretty much been bens suit from the first pic i posted.
but overall i think i like the design, however if he had shown up in the movie with this design i dont think i would be happy lol@castaway666
future foundation spiderman also had a big giant spider like that
