One of the games that I have been most looking forward to the last year or so is Spider-Man. A new 3rd person superhero action game from the folks at Insomniac. I find it very interesting that a game based on a property as huge as Spider-Man is a PlayStation exclusive,
Insomniac has a long history of PlayStation hits under their belt such as Spyro, Ratchet And Clank and the Resistance series to name a few. But they have dabbled a bit with Xbox, most notably, Sunset Overdrive so who knows this could perhaps be a timed exclusive?
Anyway, a few new details were revealed in the last trailer. We know that Mr. Negative and Kingpin are in the game, but the last trailer showcased hints towards characters like Rhino, Vulture, and Scorpion so hopefully, these guys will be in the game too.
Insomniac look to have done a ton of work in making New York feel as real and alive as possible. While they are going for a realistic New York, they have not forgotten this is a Marvel game and have included places like Avengers Tower, Dr. Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum, and the Wakandan Embassy.
One of the things that caught my eye in the very first trailer was the suit. That big white spider looks really cool and different, but there are going to be different costumes some of which come if you pre-order the game or get a special edition. Now before you start groaning and think that Microtransactions are going to be in the game for things like suits and new moves. From what I understand, no Microtransactions are going to be in Spider-Man on PlayStation 4 and that is fantastic to hear.
One of the best things that I have seen about this game is that it is going to be very story driven. Insomniac are keeping many of the story details under wraps, but what I find very interesting is the way that they have said people are going to be very surprised by MJ in the game.
I think that Spider-Man on PlayStation 4 is going to be a huge hit and thankfully as the game is being released in September, we do not have too long to wait.
