With just few months away to the Spider-Man’s planned September 7th release date, Sony and Insomniac Games have already set the tension high of what we should expect from the superhero’s video game return, with a deep dive during Sony’s E3 presentation of gameplay, combat, and the all-important web-swinging in a new extended trailer.
Sony first unveiled Spider-Man from Insomniac Games back at E3 2016, and showed off the a preview of early gameplay footage a year later at last year’s show. But today’s preview gives the best look yet at the game, with a deeper look at how combat will work in the upcoming game.
There’s also appearances from a whole chunk of Spider-Man’s rogue gallery of villains, including Electro, Rhino, Scorpion, Vulture, all of whom escape from the maximum security prison “The Raft” in the sequence, likely setting up encounters for the rest of the game.
Showcased in the trailer were some of Insomniac’s three key focuses for gameplay: the acrobatic, combo-based combat, the variety of gadgets that players will have at their disposal, and of course, the web-swinging, which looks to leverage Insomniac’s skills from games like Sunset Overdrive for a thrilling traversal mechanic.
Marvel’s Spider-Man is out exclusively for the PlayStation 4 on September 7th.
