After the triumphant showcase at Sony’s E3 2017 press conference, Insomniac Games is continuing to share information on Marvel’s Spiderman‘s gameplay and world.
Today, they provided a couple of interesting pieces of info on Twitter.
First of all, we learn that Peter Parker will make use of his ingenuity and experience in the laboratory to build his own suit and tech. At the moment, no further information on this had been provided, this might indicate some sort of crafting or upgrading feature included in the game.
While Insomniac has often mentioned that familiar characters will play new roles in the universe of their game, the basic synergy between Martin Li (A.K.A. the supervillain Mister Negative) and Peter Parker’s aunt May remains the one we’re used to. Li still hides behind the front of a philanthropist, and runs the F.E.A.S.T. homeless shelters. Aunt may works for him at one of those shelters.
On top of that, while the demo we saw at E3 showcased Mister Negative’s Inner Demons gang moving into Kingpin’s territory after Spider-man defeats the classic villain, Insomniac revealed that the struggle between Peter Parker and Wilson Fisk will actually be playable in the game.
Marvel’s Spider-Man still does not have a launch date, but it will be released exclusively for PS4. Sony Interactive Entertainment President Shawn Layden did seem to imply that the game will launch in the first half of 2018.
Yesterday, we also learned that in the game’s world Peter Parker has already been Spider-Man for eight years, and Miles Morales will serve as a catalyst to show a new side of the beloved hero.
