Spider-Man PS4: release date, trailers, gameplay info and more

We now know the Spider-Man PS4 release date. Insomniac Games released a web-spinning new trailer to confirm the news and build even more hype for the latest escapades around New York City.

The PS4-exclusive will take advantage of the additional power of the PS4 Pro. With E3 2018 right around the corner, hopefully gameplay is a big focus at Sony’s press conference.

Spider-Man PS4 Trailers – How’s it look?

E3 brought us a new, 9 minute-long, gameplay trailer that treated us to previews of the combat, stealth, and web-slinging gameplay. It’s an impressive clip that does a great job of showcasing the various types of mechanics we’ll be getting to grips with come launch.

Plus, it features Miles Morales, (the current Spider-Man in the comics), who shows up at the end of the clip. Does that mean he is, in fact, Spidey in the game? Here’s the trailer:

Is Spider-Man PS4 related to the Spider-Man movies?

This is a standalone game, unrelated to either the previous Spider-Man, Ultimate Spider-Man, or upcoming Amazing Spider-Man movies. That means it will tell its own unique story and not reflect the events from the movies.

Spider-Man PS4 gameplay – How does it look?

Spider-Man is an open world action-adventure title where you play as everyone’s friendly neighbourhood superhero. You’ll be free to explore the city of Manhattan by foot or in the air by swinging across sprawling skyscrapers and smaller suburbs.

Characters such as Peter Parker, Miles Morales and Mary Jane were confirmed in recent trailers, showing that Insomniac Games is placing a big focus on narrative. Spidey will also be capable of taking selfies with a built-in photo mode and fast travelling across Manhattan by using the subway.  Mary Jane is also playable, although in what capacity we don’t yet know.

Environmental combat, parkour and stealth are core elements of gameplay with abilities you can unlock and upgrade while progressing. We haven’t seen much of the game’s exploration but the city itself feels absolutely massive. Hopefully the level of content matches the scope of Spider-Man’s world.
