Sony took the stage at E3 2017 to show off more of Marvel’s Spiderman for Playstation 4.
Sony shows off spiderman game by Insomniac coming sometime in 2018
This year we didn’t just get a trailer, we actually got a good chunk of gameplay from the new Spiderman game by Insomniac.
The trailer starts off with Spiderman silently taking out some guards using a series of moves with his web-slinging abilities. This had a very Arkham Asylum feel to it, the same way Batman took down guys silently and even hung them upside down, and I say that in the best way possible.
Once discovered, Spiderman shows off a number of louder takedowns using his environment and the construction equipment around him. I like that they’ve incorporated the environment into the gameplay considering Spiderman’s abilities. On top of that, they’ve given Spiderman some catchy one-liners as he’s taking out bad guys. In 0ne scene he webs a crane and uses it to hit a bad guy in the head and in classic Spiderman fashion he spouts out “should’ve been wearing a helmet”.
In the trailer, we see Wilson Fisk who Spiderman quickly teams up with (enemy of my enemy is my friend) to take out Mister Negative.
There were a couple of things I didn’t like about the trailer.
First of all, there were a lot of quick time events and indoor combat and I think what people really want from this game is just to web-sling around New York. I was kind of hoping to see the world that they put Spiderman in and your capabilities within that world.
Secondly, I wasn’t a big fan of the voice acting. It for some reason seemed lackluster and lacking in energy. That could just be me but it seemed to stick out to me.
Otherwise, the game looks very action packed and the combat looks fluid and awesome.
Also, Miles Morales is in the game!
