‘Spider-Man’ PS4 Game: Comic-Con Story Trailer Ramps Up the Excitement

Insomniac Games

The hype is certainly real for the upcoming Spider-Man game.

The official story trailer for Sony’s PS4 game was shown off at Comic-Con and then released online. It doesn’t show off a complex narrative whatsoever – best summed up with Spidey’s quote “a gang of costume nutjobs is taking the city apart piece by piece… time I return the favour” – but it’s certainly an exciting look at a game that’s been very promising for a while now. Indeed, it feels like we’ve been waiting a lifetime; fingers crossed this thing kicks ass. The trailer includes a look at some of the many villains you’ll take on and the buddies that will be helping you along the way.

It’s close: Spider-Man will be available from September 7, although pre-purchase (with some perks such 3 Spidey outfits and early in-game skill points) orders are available.

Here’s Sony’s marketing overview of the game:

A new and authentic Spider-Man adventure

Marvel and Insomniac Games have teamed up to create a brand-new and authentic Spider-Man story. This isn’t the Spider-Man you’ve met before, or seen in a movie. 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 nine million New Yorkers rests upon his shoulders.

Be Spider-Man

After eight years behind the mask, Peter Parker is a crime-fighting expert. 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.

Experience an original story

The worlds of Peter Parker and Spider-Man collide in an original, action-packed tale. 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
