Spider-Man is an upcoming open world video game based on the Marvel Comics superhero Spider-Man. As with all the previous releases it is an action-adventure game, but developed by Insomniac Games and is to be published by Sony Interactive Entertainment exclusive for the PlayStation 4 console. The game is not tied to the upcoming movie: Spider-Man: Homecoming or comic book and will tell an entirely new story about Peter Parker – Spider-Man, and will feature a more experienced Spider-Man “who is more masterful at fighting crime.”
This will be the first licensed game developed by Insomniac, the developers behind Ratchet & Clank and for now, no one is certain yet as to when the game will be released even though earlier on GameStop’s website listed Spider-Man’s release date as December 26, 2017. Responding to a fan on Twitter today (via DualShockers), in response to a question about a listing for the Spider-Man game on GameStop, developers said “That’s a placeholder. No release date right now,” also the Insomniac Games account said;
All we said was there was no release date. Likely not going to announce one anytime soon.
Insomniac recently confirmed that the impressive trailer from E3 (watch it below) was shot entirely in-engine and was captured on the current PS4, not the upcoming high-end Neo model, the video below shows Spider-Man in action.
Unveiled at E3 2016, the Spider-Man game has game will take place in an open world New York City. Players will be able to use Spider-Man’s well known abilities such as web slinging and wall crawling as well as new gameplay elements unseen in previous Spider-Man games, the game also features impressive environmental combat.
As said earlier the game will not be tied to the movie or comic book, just a standalone experience;
So we’re looking at everything and we’re blending it all together. But it’s standalone; all new story, all new world. We’re always stretching, we’re always challenging, we’re always moving the characters forward.
Insomniac also confirmed that the development team working on it is “huge,” and the game will be made on the same engine used for this year’s new Ratchet & Clank PS4 game.
