Sony has revealed that a new PS4-exclusive Spider-Man game is in development. We don't know a huge amount so far, but we've seen a trailer.
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 trailerThere 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.
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.
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.
