Game Informer’s Hands on With Spider-Man

With the announcement of Spider-Man’s release date, September 7th, a ton of new footage and information is sure to be released in the coming weeks. Game Informer got a hands on look at the new game and has given their opinion on the game.

Employees of Game Informer were permitted by Insomniac Games to test out the very beginning of the game. During the quick preview, Game Informer was able to experience the combat system and even go free-roaming around New York City via web slinging.

Physics appear to be an important factor in the Spider-Man game. During a GIF originating from the game play footage acquired by Game Informer, Spider-Man can be seen leaping from a building to the ground below and using his web to swing through the air, moments before impact.

Insomniac Games, the developers of the new Spider-Man game, are famous for their Sony mascots. First came Spyro, then Ratchet and Clank, now Spider-Man. This doesn’t mark Spider-Man’s first time on a Sony console. At the time of the Tobey Mcguire Spider-Man films, Sony teamed up with the movie team for some promotional synergy. Incase you were ever wondering why older PS3 game covers had the Spider-Man font on its case, now you know.

This also marks the very first time Insomniac Games has worked with an IP as big as Spider-Man. All of their previous contributions towards the video game community have involved one-hundred percent original characters and stories.

Coming off the release of their smash hit Ratchet & Clank, which marked the revival of the franchise, Insomniac Games are sure to move units and sell consoles when Spider-Man hits store in September of 2007.

Spider-Man release date might have been leaked

Since the Spider-Man game for the PS4 was first shown off, the gaming public has been salivating thinking about when they might finally be able to get their hands on it. The graphics were top of the line, the story seemed to be one that no one had seen before, so it wasn’t something that people knew what was coming.

The action sequences especially were getting people very excited to play a super hero game for the first time in a very long time. The only problem was that nobody knew when they were going to be able to get their hot little hands on the game.

Spider-Man was once again showcased at a number of different gaming conventions in the last year, all making people think this was a game they would really like to play, whenever it comes out. While we still don’t have an official release date from the developers themselves, we might have a hint on when we could expect the game.

There have been plenty of people who have thought that the earliest we would see this new super hero game would be in early 2019. That was based mostly on the fact that it looked awfully in depth and no one had heard about it before it was shown off at E3.

Now a leak from the retailer Cool Shop, might just have the official release date. According to a listing from that store, we can expect the game to hit shelves on September 28, 2018. Cool Shop, according to Gaming Bolt is a retailer that can be leaned on for the truth more often than not. That date would also make sense because it would be the beginning of the fall flurry of new games. Until the developers confirm the date, we’ll just have to hold out hope.
