Ratchet and Clank Dev’s Spider-Man Game Launches Sometime Next Year
Sony concluded its E3 presentation with the gameplay debut of Insomniac games Spider-Man. The game was previously announced at last year’s E3 conference. Sony Interactive Entertainment America CEO Shawn Layden called the game “a true PS4 exclusive,” implying that this game will not be seeing a release on other systems.
In the gameplay video, Spider-Man is at a construction site, fighting a gang of masked criminals called the Demons. The Superhero is fighting them off while also protecting another group of criminals working for the Kingpin. The hero nimbly moves about the game map quickly thanks to his webslinging powers, utilizing the environment around him to quickly take down enemies. The battle soon shifts to a chase as Spider-Man swings through the city to pursue the Demons leader as he escapes via helicopter.
The reveal ended with the announcement of a 2018 release date. Many had speculated that the game would release alongside the upcoming Spider-Man Homecoming film, but this trailer has disproved the rumor. Before cutting to a PS4 gameplay montage to close out the press conference, Sony had one final surprise as after the montage additional footage was shown. The footage focused on the character of Miles Morales, who in the comics dons the mantle of the webslinger himself. The extent of Miles presence in the game is unknown at this time but one thing is definitely certain. This is a game Spider-Man fans won’t want to miss.
