Spi­der-Man

De­vel­oper In­som­niac Games Pub­lisher SIE For­mat PS4 Re­lease TBA

EDGE - - DISPATCHES PERSPECTIVE -

With his abil­ity to grace­fully cover large amounts of one of the world’s most iconic ci­ties at sear­ing speed, Spi­der-Man has long felt like the ideal star of an open-world su­per­hero game. He’s cer­tainly de­served bet­ter than his back cat­a­logue, whose only shin­ing light is the 12-year-old, Tre­yarch-de­vel­oped Spi­der-Man 2.

Sun­set Over­drive showed In­som­niac has the right way of look­ing at tra­ver­sal in an open world, and the stu­dio cer­tainly has the sense of hu­mour for it too. It’s a close col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween the stu­dio and Mar­vel – their of­fices are just a few min­utes apart. De­tails are, like so many of Sony’s E3 games, on the scant side, but Mar­vel sug­gests this is a stand­alone game, rather than be­ing tied in to a forth­com­ing movie. Given Parker’s re­cent Hol­ly­wood form, that’s prob­a­bly for the best too.
