It's hard to really get Spider-Man right in a video game. He's fast, strong, can basically see into the future with his Spidey-sense and not to mention all the physics that go into him web-slinging around a city like New York. There's been a lot of attempts at a game, and some of have been fine. "Web of Shadows" was certainly a fun game, but when it came to moving about like Spider-Man, it still felt...clunky.
That is about to change. Sony has announced a new upcoming game simply titled: "Spider-Man." Check out the gameplay trailer below:
That looks how Spider-Man is suppose to work. He's super quick and responsive. When he fights, you can tell that he's purposely being non-lethal and not performing attacks that would murder most humans (catching them with web before they fall, etc), which feels like what Spider-Man would actually be doing. And as far web-swinging around the city? Insomniac has reported that webs have to stick to buildings and swinging is all physics-based (gotta keep that momentum!). It all looks so smooth and I can't wait to give it a shot.
In this gameplay trailer, we see a lot of quick time events, which a lot of fan aren't happy with but if I had to guess, I'd say these will only come up during missions that advance the story and be used for cinematic effect more than anything else.
"Spider-Man" is set for release in 2018, and will be available on the Playstation 4.
