Marvel’s Spider-Man’s Gameplay Shows Spectacular Vistas From Above, Avengers Tower, Combat, and More

Sony and Insomniac Games showcased a nice chunk of live Marvel's Spider-Man gameplay on PS4 at Ani-Com & Games Hong Kong.

July 27, 2018

During a live stage event at Ani-Com & Games Hong Kong, Sony Interactive Entertainment showcased more gameplay of Marvel’s Spider-Man by Insomniac Games.

The game was introduced and played live on stage by Community Director James Stevenson, that also explained some of the relevant mechanics that make the game unique.

We get to see some inevitable swinging, stealth, combat, and more. Interestingly, we also see the gadget Web Bomb in action, alongside tripwire traps. We even see the suit power Web Blossom.

Stevenson also climbs right on top of the Empire State Building, giving up an awesome look of the game’s Manhattan, including the Avengers Tower, the Oscorp Building and much more.


Stevenson also finds two of Peter Parker’s hidden backpacks (including a Crusher Hogan ticket and an old web shooter) and then goes on to stop a robbery happening dynamically in the open world.

The demo ends with a fight against Shocker, who is trying to rob a bank.

Incidentally, I played the game yesterday… and I can’t tell you anything yet because of the NDA.

You can check out the gameplay below. If you want to see more, you can also check out a brand new story trailer (and our analysis),  and the console bundles and limited editions that will be released with the game. You can also check out more info that was shared during a panel at SDCCeven more about the suits from a second panel, and another bunch from a third panel.

Marvel’s Spider-Man releases on September 7th exclusively for PS4. You can already pre-order the newly-revealed limited edition PS4 Pro and the game on Amazon.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
