Sony’s presentation on E3 2018 was a hell of a moment for the creators of PlayStation 4, as they downplayed the first part of the film, such as The Last Of Us, The Ghost of Tsukishi and the Death Strand. But when Spider-Man was considered for the last 15 minutes, there was a vibrant thrill in the crowd. The other games are more than a year and a half, but for Marvel’s Spider-Man, it was a few months ago that he went out into the world.
For the past two years, Sony has been showcasing Spider-Man psychics and games, but that’s different because Spider-Man faces five members of Sinner Six in the game – Mr. Negative, Scorpion, Vulture, Rhino and Electrodes – and his accomplices locked in a super prison called Drift. Spider-Man has never been born out of so many famous comic villains in a single game. It took a special developer to make the sauce work.
Showing only four first-part games at the world’s largest game show and telling Sony of its success on the PS4 was a delicate decision.
Spider-Man will be released in a lineup full of other amazing Sony experiences such as the 2018 War God narrative and the new IP on the horizon: Zero Dawn and Detroit: Becoming Human. Sony has been a mile behind Microsoft in the modern console wars. His software hits led him to become the king of consoles in The Playstable 4 battle against the Xbox One.
That’s why, for the release of PlayStation 5, Sony relies on one of its best studios, Insomnia, to provide another amazing part of the experience. With PS5 coming to Spider-Man: Marvel’s Miles Morales, the sequel to the 2018 game, remakes not only the hero of the cyber slingshot, but that means what a superhero game is. The new title will seek to go further.
