New Spider-Man Stealth Gameplay Is All Kinds Of Arkham (VIDEO)
Marvel’s New York-centric web-slinger is heading to the PlayStation 4 in just over a month’s time and the hype surrounding the Spider-Man game is at a considerable peak. Developer Insomniac Games has presented an experience in the vein of the comic books, with a cornucopia of characters, a dense, traversable cityscape, and some pretty satisfying free-flow combat. This attention to detail has brought favorable comparison to Rocksteady’s Batman Arkham series, a connection that becomes more apparent following the debut of new Spider-Man stealth gameplay.
The newly-debuted footage is a bit of a pace-change from Spidey’s usual mode of operation; throwing around baddies as frequently as his one-liners. However, this is for an admittedly good reason as Mr. Negative‘s trigger-happy Inner Demons gang are holding an office building hostage. Spider-Man seems more than equipped to handle these armed mercenaries with careful maneuvering, silent web attacks, and even whispering a few quips in the process. Check out the gameplay below:
While crawling through ventilation and hanging thugs upside-down are moves usually associated with Batman, Marvel’s flagship hero seems to sport these predator abilities well, especially with the creative array of takedowns at his disposal. This well-utilized Spider-Man stealth is just one of the several surprises that have been revealed as of late, with Insomniac likely saving quite a few for the final PlayStation 4 release on September 7th.
