Insomniac is Making a PS4-Exclusive Spider-Man Game!!!
Alright, I'm not even going to try and be professional about this one. Sony announced a new Spider-Man game at E3 tonight, and it is being developed by Insomniac! It is like someone at Sony has been listening in on my dreams.
The game was announced with an awesome trailer of Spidey swinging through New York City while kicking bad guy butt! Check out the trailer for yourself below:
So for those that do not know, Insomniac is the development team behind Ratchet and Clank, and more recently, Sunset Overdrive. These guys know over-the-top action better than anyone else, and with Sunset Overdrive, they proved that they could pull off traversing an open-world environment perfectly. Essentially if you're a fan of Spider-Man, now would be a good time to start getting very exited.
Spidey seems to be wearing a suit that is unlike anything we have seen before. The blue from his sides is wrapping around his shoulders and the spider logo on his chest is white. I cannot personally recall another version of the Web Head that looks like this but it sure is neat.
Insomniac mentioned in the PlayStation Blog that their Spider-Man is not modeled after the MCU Spidey. That said, it will be refreshing to have a Spider-Man game that isn't held back by having to be a movie tie-in.
No information on a release date was given, but I'd expect it to be a few years before we get to play for ourselves, seeing as Insomniac has a handful of games currently in development.
