18 September, 2018, 17:11 | Author: Dominic Spencer
  • Spiderman PS4 Game Plus Update

Warning: Spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War and potential spoilers for Spider-Man: Far From Home and Avengers 4. Yuri Lowenthal as Peter Parker and Spider-Man is a revelation.

With this being Spider-Man though, he has a variety of different ways to take down his foes. Fast-forward to 2018, Insomniac Games, the developer behind Sunset Overdrive and Rachet and Clank, is now tasked with bringing Spider-Man to life for the PlayStation 4. To be honest, Spider-Man has never looked this fluid and, most importantly, fun. For tips and tricks more on the game, be sure to search for Twinfinite. The suits themselves are shout-outs to Spidey's many, many appearances and alternate universes, like his MCU outfit, or the dark pilot's outfit from the Spider-Man Noir mini-series.


Yes, the swinging is sensational.
Insomniac's Spider-Man is often great, but the game is only at its best when it maintains its focus on the humanity of its characters rather than on a mirror-polished version of an ordinary open world, which it doesn't do often enough. Yes, you'll get to play as another character who has no powers, and it really makes you appreciate how extraordinary the Wall Crawler and his rivals are. Some of these segments provide pure story, such as the various times Peter visits the F.E.A.S.T. shelter and interacts with Aunt May or the homeless of NY. This is an absolutely attractive game, with solid combat and a great story. There was a moment where I had Spider-Man standing in the middle of a crowd dancing, but I was disappointed to find out that there was no dancing button.

As you can see above, the clip is a short one, and it doesn't contain any spoilers for Spider-Man: Far From Home. well, that anyone can tell. Sony has managed to claim 9 start review for two of its games this year, including God of War as well. Insomniac will also be holding a livestream on Thursday, September 6th at 7:30PM PT featuring "exclusive gameplay and creator interviews", as well as a giveaway of the Spider-Man PS4 Pro Bundle. Will you grab the game as soon as it releases?
