Spiderman E3 Gameplay Trailer Revealed

Insomniac's Spider-Man, first shown at last year's E3 (and which despite the timing has nothing to do with the new movie), looked promising today with a demonstration of high-flying gameplay.

The new footage shows everyone's favorite web crawler slinking and jumping his way through an abandoned warehouse taking out the minions of criminal overlord Fisk.

Ubisoft has confirmed that it has four games due between now and March 2018, and we'd expect to see all four make E3 appearances: Assassin's Creed: Origins, Far Cry 5, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, and The Crew 2.

The new Spider-Man game from Insomniac is a PlayStation 4 exclusive. Stealth sequences could also become boring because you didn't have the same arsenal of environmental and utility-belt-included means to take out enemies. Watching Spider-Man in action and recording it on his phone was Miles Morales, the other Spider-Man. This is an experienced Peter Parker who's more masterful at fighting big crime in New York City.

Sony kicked off their E3 2017 with a huge raft of new game announcements and trailers at a packed PlayStation Briefing. The world premiere of gameplay highlighted a combat system that borrows heavily from Arkham Knight and recent Batman games, as well as a worryingly strong emphasis on quick-time events. Last week it seemed like the release date would be revealed during E3, and now it looks like it has, although perhaps not in the most official of capacities.

When Spidey finally catches up to the helicopter he's been chasing in the E3 demo, he's surprised by an aggressive-looking Mr. Li, who is nearly certainly Mister Negative.

At the risk of sounding too optimistic, Spider-Man PS4 is shaping up to be the Spidey game I've wanted for years. First introduced in The Amazing Spider-Man #546 and created by Dan Slott and Phil Jimenez, Li goes by the supervillain moniker Mister Negative.

Sony has announced the highly anticipated release year for their web-slinging superhero title, Spider-Man.
