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.
