Following the triumphant reveal during Sony Interactive Entertainment’s press conference at E3 2017, Insomniac is trickling down quite a few interesting pieces of information on Twitter.
Asked whether Mary Jane will appear in the game, Insomniac mentioned that Peter Parker does have someone special in his life, and as usual, it’s “complicated.”
Talking about the appearance of Miles Morales at the end of the trailer, the developer promised more info at a later time on whether he’s playable. Yet they clarified that while “this is a Peter Parker story,” Miles does have a role to play in the story, so it isn’t just a cameo.
We also learn that stealth is “absolutely” a viable option during encounters with enemies, even if not in every situation. The development team likes granting players the choice.
Incidentally, we get a further confirmation that the game will run at 1080p, 30 frames per second on PS4, and 4K (using the studio’s temporal injection solution), 30 FPS on PS4 Pro.
As a final note, GameStop recently included a June 30th, 2018 release date for the game on its listing page. Insomniac clarified that this is just a placeholder. It was pretty clear considering that June 30th is the end of a fiscal quarter, which is normally a clear indication of a placeholder.
That said, Sony Interactive Entertainment President Shawn Layden did seem to imply that the game will release in the first half of 2018, which means before June 30th.
