Great­ness awaits

Play (UK) - - Welcome - Josh west deputy ed­i­tor @Origamikid PSN: Origamikid

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.
