E3 2017: PS4 Gets An Exclusive Spider-Man Game; Arriving In 2018
A new superhero game is about to make history in the video game industry, and it is no other than the Spider-Man VR game. This was courtesy of Sony in which it revealed at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3). So far, it is looking to be a very promising title in the market.
According to Fortune, the tech giant just unveiled a brand new Spider-Man game for its PlayStation video console at the aforementioned event. It is due for release sometime in 2018, with Insomniac Games at the helm. This is the studio responsible for bringing the likes of Resistance and Ratchet & Clank.
Sony's very own president and CEO (Sony Interactive Entertainment America) named Shawn Layden said that "the future is here." He is basically referring to both PlayStation 4 Pro and the PS VR. It seems the company is really venturing on the promising potentials of the virtual reality technology. It is where developers tend to win the hearts of the gamers through headsets and accessories, created to bring an immersive gameplay.
CNET notes that the forthcoming Spider-Man game somehow gets inspiration from the Batman: Arkham series. The latter, in particular, has become one of the most critically acclaimed titles since it was launched. Even today, it is considered as the best model for any stealth superhero action that people would hope and want for.
This is why it is no wonder if Sony takes a dive of inspiration from the aforementioned title in developing the Spider-Man game. Of course, the only difference, which is quite huge, is its adaptation in the VR technology. This alone should give a totally different gameplay experience, which people hope to not give a nausea feeling.
Sony has not unveiled any further details about the game, except for the trailer and some gameplay details. But as soon as it gets near for release, people can expect the tech giant to release further information about the forthcoming title.
