Spider-Man: Everything we know about the PS4 exclusive


Spider Man PS4 1

Developed by Insomniac Games, the minds behind Resistance, Ratchet and Clank and Sly Cooper, Spider-Man is web-slinging onto PS4 in the near future. We know little about it thus far, beyond its fantastic teaser trailer and confirmed PS4 Pro support.

Read on for everything we know alongside a little bit of trailer speculation.

Spider-Man PS4 game trailer

First shown at Sony's E3 press conference, here's our first look at the game

What we learned from the trailer

There are a few important details we've learned. For starters, this is a Spider-Man who already possesses ability and skill, and is aware that he's relied upon by the folk of New York City for protection against the bad guys.Spider Man PS4

This appears to be a standalone game, in that it doesn't seem to be attached to any form of movie franchise, which is nice.

In terms of the gameplay itself, we see some fairly violent encounters, with Spidey launching himself off buildings directly onto his enemies.

In another scene, he wraps a string around a guy's neck and slams him to the ground. Something tells us this is going to be a no-holds-barred sort of game.

We also see the protagonist slamming a concrete block into enemies, sliding along on a piece of metal attached to a moving car, and swing off a crane in the middle of a street. That's a lot of badassery.

There are some explosive encounters, too, with some criminals riding atop an SUV, blowing up police cars. Undoubtedly, Spider-Man will be along in short order to sort that out.Spider Man PS4 2

We'd expect fairly fluid movement, since it's a Spider-Man game, but we'll have to wait and see.

The game is developed by Insomnia, the company behind Spyro, Ratchet & Clank, Resistance and, more recently, Sunset Overdrive.

Spider-Man PS4 release date

You'd be so lucky. There's no further info on this title, aside from the fact that it's in development.
