Marvel's Spider-Man for PS4 Invades Manhattan's Subway with Awesome Spidey Hype Train

Sony Interactive Entertainment has kicked the promotion of Marvel's Spider-Man up a notch with an actual Spider-Man subway train.

August 15, 2018

Today commuters in Manhattan, New York City, found themselves immersed in the atmosphere of Insomniac Games’ Marvel’s Spider-Man.

Sony kicked off a marketing campaign decorating a subway train with the game’s imagery, including your friendly neighborhood superhero himself, copies and ads of the Daily Bugle and of John Jonah Jameson’s own radio program “Just the Facts.

Even seats are all marked with the game’s by now iconic white spider insignia that appears on the chest of the new Advanced Suit.

Insomniac Games itself shared that the train can be seen in the shuttle line between Times Square and Grand Central station.

The game releases on September 7th exclusively for PS4. You can already pre-order the newly-revealed limited edition PS4 Pro and the game itself 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.
