E3 2016: Insomniac Is Making A Spider-Man Game For PS4

Insomniac Games has announced it is working on a new Spider-Man game. A trailer for the title was shown during Sony's PlayStation press conference at E3. The game will feature a new, authentic story in which players will take control of an experienced Peter Parker.

In a post by Marvel Games Creative Director Bill Rosemann, he explained that 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!”

As for deciding to go with Sony on the game, he said:

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.

You can view the trailer of Spider-Man for PS4 below.

 

In the trailer above, Spider-Man is shown leaping around a cafe, before smashing through a window and landing on moving cars. He battles against an armed thug, using his webbing to tie him up to a passing lamp post. He's later seen leaping from a building that looks to be collapsing and also hanging onto the side of a moving train. All in a day's work for your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.

I was surprised. I never expected for Sony to announce a Spider-Man game exclusively for PS4. Well, Sony owns the rights for the Spider-Man movie franchise so I guess it's inevitable that they'll also make a Spider-Man game for PS4. What do you think guys for this new Spider-Man game for PS4?

This looks fantastic. I had to do a double take when I saw it was Insomniac. I thought for sure it would've been Sucker Punch. But no sweat, I think Insomniac can handle it just fine. This title is way high on my gotta play list.

Super stoked on this. I would have preferred if the rumor was true and it was SP, just because I'd really like to see their take on spidey, but Insomniac is one of the best and I know they'll kick ass too.

I will say I'm not a fan of the white elements to the new suit though. But this is a Spiderman game so I'm sure they'll be plenty of classic skin options. My first playthrough might just be Spidermans journey to find his real suit so I can really start playing.

So very relieved that it wasn't SP making this game, I now can sleep a little better at night knowing they are working on their own ip. As for the Spiderman game it looks great and will be my first spiderman since the ps2 ones.

I bet Sony has many more unannounced games from the various studios they own which adds to the excitement of what else is out there.As for SP I'm really curious, I think they know how much people want Cole back.

This is the thing that set us off. The Spidey game that Spidey deserves after all these years.

This looks pretty awesome. Insomniac will probably make all the other Spider Man games look and feel worse than they already are.

Looks great. This, God of War, Death Stranding and Breath of the Wild all look fantastic. I'm going to go on a total media blackout on God of War and Breath of the Wild.

Marvel has been looking getting back into getting console gaming for a while wonder if Spider-man does well would they give Sony other heroes?

I'm getting tired of spider man games. Not enough innovation between them on. So just a little burnt out.

I think if they changed the spider to black instead of white it'd look 100x better. That said, the suits not a deal breaker for me. I'll get used to it and i give em props for trying something new. This has serious potential.
