This is The second time that Play Digital has featured Insomniac’s Spider-man on the cover in the last 12 months. That isn’t something that I would usually encourage… there are, after all, plenty of games deserving to be on the cover of this magazine. Here’s the thing, I just couldn’t turn down the opportunity to sit down with the creative director of 2018’s biggest Playstation 4 exclusive, Spider-man.
Truth be told, it is deserving of all of the attention it is receiving. This is the game that so many of us have spent decades waiting to play. Sure, the likes of Treyarch and Beenox have had their moments, but never before have I seen a game that so confidently captures the essence of the character – not as excellently as this, at least. The webswinging feels intuitive, the combat is expressive and the writing seems to be pitch-perfect; this is a Spider-man game made by the fans, for the fans.
Insomniac take us inside the development of its largest open-world game to date, revealing fresh gameplay details alongside a ton of new information about the story and the cast of characters you can expect to meet along the way. If you’re a Spidey fan you’re going to want to sit down and spend some time pouring over this month’s cover feature.
If you aren’t a fan of Spider-man (oh no... you’re one of those DC fans, aren’t you?), don’t worry, we’ve got plenty in these pages to keep you entertained. We’ve previewed some of 2019’s hottest games – the likes of Anthem, Control and Resident Evil 2 Remake. We sat down the team behind the upcoming free-to-play FPS, Warface,
and we got our hands all over EA’S incredible new entry to the FIFA series, FIFA 19. If you’re looking for recommendations on what you should be playing right this very second, we’ve also detailed one of the best indie games of 2018 and reviewed the hottest new triple-a games.
With Spider-man on the near horizon and a slew of excellent games to follow soon after, we’ve certainly got a really exciting few months ahead of us. I’m so happy that I get to be your guide through it all.
