Closing out PlayStation’s E3 2017 Showcase, we got our first look at actual gameplay for Spider-Man’s upcoming game from Insomniac Games.
In the demo, Spidey heads to a building still under construction to take on members of “The Demons”, who are encroaching on Wilson Fisk aka The Kingpin’s territory. The first section shows off a Arkham Asylum-esque section of stealth and taking out henchmen while staying out of sight. Following that was a section of more direct combat.
Here, Spider-Man appears to employ his Spider-Sense to allow the player more time to pull off smooth combos whether knocking out foes or simply pinning them to the ground with webbing. After another combat scene with a heftier foe, Spidey gets into a fight with a crane and helicopter. employing quicktime events, Spider-Man has the player pinning the crane to sides of buildings to prevent catastrophic disaster. After Spidey handles the helicopter to catch a cameo from a fan-favorite character. What could this tease mean?
Spider-Man already looks really polished, and we can’t wait to see what Insomniac Games has up their web-shooter. Even so, we have to wait until sometime in 2018 for it to release exclusively on PS4.
