Insomniac’s Spider-Man Gameplay Premiered at Sony’s E3 Press Conference (VIDEO)
Most of today’s Sony E3 press conference consisted of new trailers for previously announced games, with very little commentary from Sony or developer representatives. Sometimes just presenting the game as it is works best, and this is usually what Sony will often do to close out its E3 press conferences. The same was the case at their event today, which ended with a focus on the new Insomniac Games Spider-Man project that fans have been waiting to see more of. Today, Sony released the first Spider-Man gameplay footage that the public has seen, and the prospects for the new game look quite promising. Check it out:
The video seen above was posted to the official Marvel Entertainment YouTube page after it was the bookend to a fantastic Sony press conference. The footage shows Spider-Man eliminating armed criminals and avoiding detection through his webbing abilities, until reaching a group of the baddies and engaging them in melee combat. Spider-Man soon grabs a cell phone from one of the targets of these criminals, and speaks to their employer, one Wilson Fisk aka Kingpin. He offers to tell Spidey who the leader of these henchmen is in exchange for the protection of Fisk’s own workers. Spider-Man then disposes of more criminals, including an enhanced brute miniboss.
The leader of the criminals is revealed to be Martin Li, aka Mister Negative, who escapes in a helicopter as Spider-Man gives chase. Spidey is able to stop the helicopter, but not without Li revealing his powers to Peter Parker. The trailer then ends with the year 2018 shown, indicating the game’s release next year.
