PlayStation fans and/or Marvel fans, we got a nice present this E3. Sony’s E3 press conference ended with a new trailer for the PS4 exclusive, Spider-Man. This game was first revealed during Sony’s last E3 conference, and this provided more details for this highly awaited game. What is this new adventure with Spidey bringing to the table?
There have been no shortage of games featuring our favorite wall-crawler, some good, some bad. This new entry is being produced by Insomniac Games, known for making Ratchet & Clank and Resistance. From the gameplay, we see Spider-Man traversing the world and dispatching foes in true Spidey fashion. What’s more, Queens has never looked so large. It’s early, but we will assuredly get an opportunity to explore the city.
The Rogue Gallery Of Spider-Man
From the trailer, we can see Spider-Man face off against men hired by Wilson Fisk, better known to comic fans as The Kingpin. Moreover, the trailer has Spidey directly face off against Martin Li, better known as Mister Negative. It’s clear from this trailer that in addition to these two, Spidey will have to face off against many iconic villains. Perhaps the likes of Green Goblin, Dr. Octopus, Kraven The Hunter, or others? We’ll have to wait and see.
Release Date…And Miles Morales?!
So, the question is, when do we get to play? No solid release date was given, but we can expect the game in 2018. But in Marvel fashion, we get one more tease after the “end” of the trailer. Yes, Miles Morales appears in the end of the trailer.
Don’t know who Miles Morales is? To summarize, in the Ultimate Marvel comics (an alternate take on the Marvel stories), Peter Parker died in battle, and in his place, Miles Morales stepped up to become the new Spider-Man.
So, what does this mean for the game? Well, for starters, it suggests that the game will be based on the Ultimate Marvel Universe, as opposed to the regular one. This means slightly altered backstories and designs for the characters.
And what of Miles himself? Could this suggest multiple playable Spider-Men? Will Peter Parker die, forcing Miles to take over? And could the appearance of Miles suggest the appearance of other Spider heroes like Spider-Gwen, Scarlet Spider, or others? I definitely look forward to more details as the development of the game goes forward.
