Marvel’s highly anticipated Spider-Man game, which comes from Spyro, Ratchet & Clank, Resistance, and Sunset Overdrive developer Insomniac Games, is still a few weeks from release. But that’s not stopping PlayStation from releasing an early launch trailer.
The trailer is a gameplay launch trailer, to be specific, though it doesn’t show a whole lot of actual gameplay unfortunately. Still, it’s a fun watch. There’s also a second video for excited fans to enjoy, and it’s even better. It shows a lot more gameplay footage, all set to a conversation between J. Jonah Jameson and someone who’s named Peter Pa…tterson on Jameson’s radio show (or podcast?) called “Just the Facts.”
You can read much more about the game and check out both of the videos below.
Marvel’s Spider-Man. Be Greater.
When a new villain threatens New York City, Peter Parker and Spider-Man’s worlds collide. To save the city and those he loves, he must rise up and be greater.
A Brand-New and Authentic Spider-Man Adventure
Sony Interactive Entertainment, Insomniac Games, and Marvel have teamed up to create a brand-new and authentic Spider-Man adventure. This isn’t the Spider-Man you’ve met or ever seen before. This is an experienced Peter Parker who’s more masterful at fighting big crime in New York City. At the same time, he’s struggling to balance his chaotic personal life and career while the fate of millions of New Yorkers rest upon his shoulders.
After eight years behind the mask, Peter Parker is a crime-fighting master. Feel the full power of a more experienced Spider-Man with improvisational combat, dynamic acrobatics, fluid urban traversal, and environmental interactions. A rookie no longer, this is the most masterful Spider-Man you’ve ever played.
The worlds of Peter Parker and Spider-Man collide in an original action-packed story. In this new Spider-Man universe, iconic characters from Peter and Spider-Man’s lives have been reimagined, placing familiar characters in unique roles.
Marvel’s New York is Your Playground
The Big Apple comes to life as Insomniac’s most expansive and interactive world yet. Swing through vibrant neighborhoods and catch breathtaking views of iconic Marvel and Manhattan landmarks. Use the environment to defeat villains with epic takedowns in true blockbuster action.
The game is a PlayStation 4 exclusive, and you’ll be able to grab a copy over at Amazon. It will also be available in a Collector’s Edition and a PlayStation 4 Pro 1TB Limited Edition Console bundle. Unfortunately none of these appear available for pre-order at the time of writing, which is a bit strange with the game so close to launch, but it could be a hot pre-order item. Hopefully more will be available soon.
This latest Spidey game will be released on September 7th. If you haven’t seen a lot of the game prior to the videos below, be sure to click right here for some of the great trailers and gameplay videos that have been released in the past.
