Could ‘Spider-Man’ be the Spidey game we’ve always wanted?
Though only teased at last year’s E3, Sony finally showed us some real gameplay from the new Spider-Man game, coming from Ratchet & Clank vets Insomniac Games. And boy, does it make us want to shake the hand of our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.
The gameplay trailer, showed off at Sony’s E3 press conference Monday, highlighted how Spidey would swing around the city, how he would save citizens, and how he would beat up bad guys. There’s a great deal of Batman brawling mixed into its DNA, along with the traversal that Insomniac Games perfected with Sunset Overdrive.
When Spidey finally catches up to the helicopter he’s been chasing in the E3 demo, he’s surprised by an aggressive-looking Mr. Li, who is almost certainly Mister Negative.
Though we did not get an exact release date for the web-slinging superhero, the game will supposedly hit shelves in 2018. So hold tight to the side of that helicopter until then.
