The nine minutes of footage gives us the first look at Marvel’s Spider-Man gameplay, get it after the jump:
Spider-Man PS4 Gameplay Demo
In the real-time gameplay demo we released (and will be playing live in a theater in the PlayStation Booth at E3), Spider-Man has arrived at a construction site owned by Wilson Fisk (a.k.a. the Kingpin). Fisk’s men are under assault by a gang known as the Inner Demons, and Spider-Man has to stop the bloodshed.
In the process, he learns that Martin Li, one of the city’s most prominent philanthropists, secretly leads the Inner Demons via his alter-ego, Mr. Negative. Martin Li runs the F.E.A.S.T. shelters all across town which only further complicates things for Peter Parker’s personal life, as his beloved Aunt May works at F.E.A.S.T.
During the demo, you’ll see a sampling of Spider-Man’s more powerful improvisational and acrobatic combat style. He’s honed his skills and he’s stronger and more confident in combat. Dodging, using webs, and aerial combat are all second nature.
You may also notice the usage of Web Trip Wire and impact webs. After spending eight years fighting crime in the city, Parker’s genius in the lab and workshop has led to the creation of many new gadgets and devices that he can use as Spider-Man during the course of the game.
We’ve taken great care when developing a beautiful Manhattan for players to explore. Getting the web swinging right was absolutely imperative to us, and we’ve spent a lot of time on that (yes, webs do attach to buildings).
But you’ll also notice Spider-Man has a whole other suite of traversal moves, including using parkour-style moves to overcome any part of the environment with effortless skill.
Our Spider-Man is also about those BIG moments that punctuate the story, and you’ll see one of those in the demo as Spider-Man tackles the challenge of chasing Mr. Negative while also protecting the citizens of New York.
The open world action-adventure, Marvel’s Spider-Man is currently in development for PlayStation 4. It will release sometime in 2018.
