Insomniac Games is currently working on a new Spider-Man game which is going to release exclusively for PlayStation 4, the developer announced during Sony’s E3 2016 press conference.
An accompanying teaser trailer showcased amazing parkour mechanics, as well as a new unique costume for our favorite superhero with a large white spider symbol across the chest. Spider-Man is looking better than ever, and this could very well be the best game the franchise has received so far.
“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,” said Insomniac Games.
The developer has confirmed that the game is not related to the upcoming movie. Fans shouldn’t consider this as a tie-in, since the game features an entirely different setting. It’s also not an origins story; Peter Parker will be depicted as a very seasoned fighter in the game. However, at the same time, the storyline will focus on his struggle to balance his personal life and career.
Insomniac Games is well-versed in the superhero genre, coming in right after it finished operations for Sunset Overdrive. The studio can definitely do justice to the Spider-Man brand.
