Intriguingly, the trailer's final tag shows Miles Morales, a late-era Spider-Man of black and hispanic descent.
Ahead of the E3 games show in Los Angeles, Microsoft (MSFT) unveiled its new Xbox console, a super-powered 4K graphical monster that puts Sony's (SNE) recently launched PlayStation 4 Pro to shame. While the usual web swinging is present there also seems to be some stealth elements as well kinetic fight sequences and even a few quick time events. This is an experienced Peter Parker who's more masterful at fighting big crime in New York City.
Revealed a year ago, Sony is finally giving us a good look at Spider-Man on PS4 and it looks great.
Spider-Man has had a long history with gaming, but many consider 2004's Spider-Man 2 to be the best because of its fun web-swinging mechanics.
I will speak more on it in best of the show, but Spider-Man looks magnificent.
Sony usually loves indie games, and the company tends to give them a good amount of attention during it's E3 presentations. It looked like every other garden variety Spidey game at first, but then we learned that Insomniac games, the team behind the creative and frantic Ratchet & Clank platformer series, were behind the wheel. People were blown away not only by the visuals but how the game looked like it would play.
No official release date has been announced yet, but Spider-Man is expected to release sometime in 2018.
Spider-Man is a PS4 exclusive, set to release in 2018. His agility and speed was on full display as he escaped a collapsing crane, and the spider-sense slows things down while you're in combat so you have time to make additional moves.
