Spi­der-Man

Su­per­pow­ers may not be new to videogames, but web-based lo­co­mo­tion is very much Spi­der-Man’s thing. Add de­vel­oper In­som­niac Games’ air for speed and an­i­ma­tion, and this PS4 ex­clu­sive is al­ready shap­ing up to be a block­buster. It fea­tures an orig­i­nal story set well into Peter Parker’s dou­ble life, with mul­ti­ple Spidey suits for play­ers to pick from. (Out: 7 Sep 2018)

Ghost of Tsushima

Sucker Punch are tak­ing a more rooted ap­proach with this sa­mu­rai ac­tion­ad­ven­ture game. Set dur­ing the 1924 Mon­gol in­va­sion of Ja­pan, play­ers must re­sort to stealth and slick sword­play in the face of over­whelm­ing odds. They’ve only shown a slice of this open­world game, but it’s a vis­ually im­pres­sive slice none­the­less. (Out: TBA)

The Last of Us: Part II

Fans were treated to some tan­ta­liz­ing game­play as a grownup El­lie comes to a horrically vi­o­lent clash against a band of cultists. We spot im­proved scav­eng­ing and AI sys­tems for this highly-an­tic­i­pated se­quel, though it’s the an­i­ma­tion work that has ob­servers blown away. Could this be the high-ying swan song of the PS4? (Out: TBA)
