Wow, what a PlayStation E3 Showcase! That was an intense and heart-pounding evening, and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we appreciated being a part of it.
We absolutely love working with the Marvel Universe and its amazing characters … and as you’ll see in the new gameplay video we showed this evening – our roster of characters in the game just expanded … a lot.
Our team is thrilled to finally show you more of what you’ll be up against in Marvel’s Spider-Man. Things heat up for Spider-Man as many of the Super Villains he has put away over his eight years as Spidey have escaped simultaneously. This is a pivotal moment in the game, where the fragile peace in New York City has now been completely shattered, as Super Villains have now escaped the maximum-security facility, the RAFT, just off the coast of Manhattan. Worse, as you saw at the end of the gameplay video, Spider-Man is no match on his own in the one vs. five situation. These are dire times in Marvel’s New York City.
We spent a ton of time working with our friends at Marvel Games to ensure we got characters like Rhino, Scorpion, Vulture, and Electro just right. Those four join Mister Negative as five villains in our game cooperating with the mysterious sixth villain that Spider-Man sees just before the end of the gameplay video. They all showed off brand new, original, and more powerful versions of their suits. These designs were careful collaborations to create familiar but fresh takes on the characters.
We hope you enjoyed another taste of one of our blockbuster action moments in Marvel’s Spider-Man. This week we’re also letting everyone at the show swing around a section of our Manhattan, stopping crime, completing research tasks for Harry Osborn, infiltrating and shutting down enemy bases, and even coming face-to-face with Shocker himself in a climactic boss battle.
Everyone here at Insomniac is working hard to finish the game and ensure it lives up to your expectations on September 7, 2018. You can pre-order now – which gets you an early unlock of a Spidey Suit Pack, the Spider-Drone gadget, skill points to spend immediately on your skill tree, as well as a PS4 theme and PSN avatar.
For those attending E3 – they can get a copy of the Daily Bugle that’s ripped from the world of Marvel’s Spider-Man the day after the RAFT Breakout. Even if you don’t snag that though, we have an additional Daily Bugle series that will be posted on the Marvel’s Spider-Man web page that shares some of the events that occur in the lead-up to the beginning of Marvel’s Spider-Man. Check back every month through September for new digital issues!
