All Articles: Spider-Man
With Spider-Man: Homecoming set to open in theaters next July, it would be easy to assume that Insomniac’s Spider-Man game is just a movie tie-in, and that it’s also in the works for Microsoft’s Xbox One and Nintendo’s NX… but you would be wrong. Instead, Sony Interactive Entertainment was the driving force behind the title, and they’re the ones who partnered with Insomniac to create the PS4-exclusive title.
And according to Creative Director Bryan Intihar (as told to the PlayStation Blog), this Spider-Man game won’t be based on an existing comic storyline or the upcoming movie:
Spider-Man is one of the most iconic and well-known characters in the world, and we’re thrilled to be given the responsibility to create a brand-new, authentic Spider-Man story. Nope, this isn’t the same Spider-Man you’ve met before, nor is our game based on the upcoming movie. This is a more seasoned Peter Parker who’s more masterful at fighting big crime in New York City. At the same time, he’s struggling to balance his absurdly chaotic personal life and career. All while nine million New Yorkers depend on him for their safety… no pressure indeed.
Insomniac is committed to bringing Spider-Man’s acrobatic abilities and webslinging to life, but they also want to create new “combat and blockbuster set-pieces” for the wallcrawler, as well as an increased focus on traveling through the environment with parkour.
There’s currently no release date for Insomniac’s Spider-Man game, but I’ve embedded the debut trailer up above so you can watch it once more.
In a news story that makes all the sense in the world, Sony announced tonight that a new Spider-Man game is being developed by none other than Insomniac Games, the team behind wild action titles like Sunset Overdrive and Ratchet & Clank. It definitely looks like this is the Spider-Man game we were meant to play, though no release date was given.
Spider-Man is a PlayStation 4 exclusive, and features an open-world environment.
