Sony’s 2016 E3 presentation was an extravaganza that lived up to the hype. From a live orchestra conducted by Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s composer Bear McCreary to Norman Reedus’ lovingly digitally rendered butt in the Death Stranding trailer, everyone had something to be excited about. But what had Marvel gaming nerds everywhere screaming was the reveal of a new Spider-Man game coming soon from Insomnia Games and exclusively to the Playstation 4.
Why Spider-Man? Because when Stan Lee and Steve Ditko created Peter Parker, they broke the mold of what a Super Hero could be and set the bar by which all others would be judged. And that’s exactly what we plan to do with this game: break the mold and set a new bar of greatness for Marvel Games!
Why Insomniac? Insomniac is a perfect match for Spider-Man because not only are they world class game developers that make phenomenal story-driven experiences, but they also craft games bursting with personality, humor and most importantly: fun…just like Spidey!
Why PlayStation? The PlayStation 4 is one of the most exciting gaming platforms ever! But not only have they created a great gaming console, they also have an amazing line-up of first party titles and a community of the most passionate players that we are thrilled to join.
Insomniac Games, makers of the popular Ratchet & Clank series & Sunset Overdrive, is a great match for Spider-Man’s lighter tone mixed with fast paced gameplay. The teaser trailer shown at E3 spotlighted Spider-Man swinging through the New York skyline and pouncing down on evil doers from the rooftops.
