A new trailer for Marvel’s Spider-Man video game was released earlier this week for Paris Games Week 2017. The game is developed by Insomniac, the developer behind the Spyro, Ratchet & Clank, and Resistance series, as well as Sunset Overdrive.
We’ve already seen the announcement trailer and even a good peek at gameplay action. The latest preview is a teaser trailer, which takes a closer look at what the game’s story will be about.
You can find more info and the new trailer below.
Creative director Bryan Intihar had this to say about the game over on the PlayStation Blog:
My name is Bryan Intihar and Iâ€™m the Creative Director for Insomniac Games working on Marvelâ€™s Spider-Man. This past summer was a very exciting time for our studio as E3 and D23 served as great avenues to showcase the unique Spider-Man game universe weâ€™re building. Since then we know youâ€™ve been anxiously awaiting another look at the Web-Slinger, which is why we were thrilled to unveil a new trailer at the PlayStation Media Showcase at Paris Games Week. The trailer includes your first glimpses at the man behind the mask â€“ Peter Parker. We also introduce you to Peterâ€™s very close friend Mary Jane Watson, his beloved Aunt May, his longtime nemesis Wilson Fisk (AKA Kingpin), and much more.
As Spider-Man asks at the trailerâ€™s conclusion, â€œanyone else need a breather?â€ Well, donâ€™t take a break for too long because thereâ€™s a lot to go through here!
First off, our 23-year-old Peter finds himself trying to juggle his career and personal life with being a Super Hero. And while heâ€™s more experienced and masterful at fighting crime (including finally taking down the Kingpin), can Peter finally find balance? Or will Spider-Manâ€™s responsibility to protect the city take priority if Kingpin really was the â€œone who kept order in this cityâ€?
In the past, weâ€™ve talked a lot about how the best Spider-Man stories happen when Spider-Man and Peter Parkerâ€™s worlds collide. So to understand Peterâ€™s world a bit, players will also play as Peter during parts of the game. Not only that, Mary Jane has a significant role here too. MJ is a smart, savvy reporter with The Daily Bugle and sheâ€™s investigating the suspicious activity happening throughout the city. She wonâ€™t be just a bystander either, so yes, players will even play as MJ for key moments.
MJ, however, isnâ€™t the only intersection between Peter and Spider-Manâ€™s worlds. His own Aunt May is a longtime employee of philanthropist Martin Li at his F.E.A.S.T. shelters. Peter even introduces a young Miles Morales to his aunt as a new shelter volunteer. Unfortunately, Peter makes the terrible discovery that Mayâ€™s employer is secretly Mister Negative (you can see that moment in our E3 2017 Gameplay Demo). Mister Negative and his Inner Demonsâ€™ reign of terror on New York City pose the most seriousâ€”and personalâ€”threat that our Spider-Man has faced in his eight years of web-swinging and crime fighting.
We couldnâ€™t be more excited to be bringing Spider-Man to PlayStation 4 in 2018. To celebrate the trailer, we are hosting a special livestream this Friday, November 3rd, at 2pm PDT. Weâ€™ll be doing a rewind of the trailer, giving away rare development team swag, and answering your questions.
