Sony surprised audiences tonight at their E3 conference with the announcement of an all-new Spider-Man game coming exclusively to PlayStation 4. The game is being developed by Insomniac games, recently known for Sunset Overdrive, and if Spider-Man plays anything like that, fans should be very pleased.
Along with the announcement came a trailer, which you can watch below. The trailer shows the Web Head swinging his way around New York City and fighting baddies. Also interesting, Spidey’s suit is unlike anything we have seen before. Some elements seem like nods to the recent Civil War suit but overall, it looks to be something entirely new.
On the PlayStation Blog, developer Insomniac posted, “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”. They also mentioned that this Spider-Man is unrelated to the upcoming MCU movie.
No release window was provided for the game, though given that it was just a CG trailer, I’d say we have at least two years before we get our hands on Insomniac’s Spider-Man.
