Sony have shown off Marvel’s Spider-Man at E3 with an impressive 9-minute gameplay trailer.
The extended look follows last years reveal, and comes with news that Insomniac Games’ PlayStation 4 title is aiming for a 2018 release.
We also learnt that Marvel’s Spider-Man will feature Ultimate Spider-Man – Miles Morales – as well as Peter Parker, alongside various other characters from the Marvel Universe, including Kingpin Wilson Fisk, Mister Negative and Wraith.
For me, this footage was easily the highlight of Sony’s show – it’s visually fantastic, especially given it’s apparently running on base PS4 hardware (not PS4 Pro) in the demo – and the gameplay itself, whilst borrowing plenty from the Batman Arkham trilogy, seems to be fast, fluid, and exactly what Spidey needs.
My senses are tingling.
PlayStation Experience 2016 saw plenty of new game announcements, and none more exciting to fighting game fans than the news that Marvel and Capcom have joined forces once again to bring Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite to consoles and PC next year.
The game will feature a full cinematic Story Mode, single player Arcade, Training and Mission modes, as well as online and local multiplayer battles.
Rendered with Unreal Engine 4 technology, and featuring an iconic, diverse roster of Marvel and Capcom characters, Infinite will see universes collide once again in this all-new crossover clash for the ages, where players engage in accessible and action-packed 2v2 partner battles.
Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is currently in development and scheduled for release in late 2017. In the meantime, you might be pleased to hear that Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 is now available as a digital download on the PlayStation store.
Over at Sony’s high-octane E3 presser, we’ve just been treated to a brief trailer for Insomniac Games’ next project – a PS4 exclusive Spiderman title.
The teaser sees Peter Parker web-slinging his way through buildings as well as the streets, riding atop cars, and just doing other generally badass things.
Check it out:
Marvel and Insomniac Games team up to create a brand-new, authentic Spider-Man story exclusively for PlayStation 4. Take control of an experienced Peter Parker who is more masterful at fighting crime.
My Spidey senses are tingling – this looks great and I’m excited to see more in the future, although one suspects it’ll be late 2017 at the earliest before a release.
