Excited to know the release date of Spider-Man on PS4? We might finally hear it at E3 2017. Sony has been very tight-lipped about the PS4-exclusive title since E3 2016. Gamers have waited for a year to get a clue about the game, so it will be disappointing if it will not have a presentation at E3 2017.
Now, here's what we know so far about Spider-Man 2017 release date, gameplay, and rumors.
The surprise announcement of Spider-Man PS4 (working title) has left fans clamoring for more information about the game. However, since E3 2016, Sony has not yet released any clue about the game's storyline, characters, and even gameplay. The closest thing that we have is the "Spider-Man PS4 E3 2016 Teaser," which has more than 3 million views now on YouTube.
E3 2017 is Sony's perfect time to reveal more details about the game since many fans are also anticipating the premiere of Spider-Man: Homecoming movie. It is not yet revealed if the film's plot is tied to the PS4 game, but Marvel Games Creative Director Bill Roseman says the game will be independent of the existing Marvel Universe.
Interestingly, in a recorded live stream, Marvel Digital Media Vice President Ryan Penagos hinted that Spider-Man PS4 release date would certainly be in 2017. "There's even more on the horizon for 2017...like Spider-Man coming to PlayStation 4," he said. Based on this statement, it seems like we will be able to play the new Spider-Man game this year. A listing from Amazon says it will be released on December 29, 2017.
For the part of game developer Insomniac, it has proven that it can make quality titles in the past, so gamers have big expectation for the Spider-Man game. The smooth movement and feeling of freedom in Sunset Overdrive is satisfying. Plus, the studio's remake on Ratchet & Clank last year is very fantastic.
We expect the new Spider-Man will retain most of the popular mechanics in the previous Spider-Man games. From wall crawling to web-slinging, there will be lots acrobatic stunts in the match. Of course, Insomniac will introduce new elements that have never been used in a Spider-Man title.
For now, let's wait and see if Spider-Man PS4 will appear at E3 2017. Stay tuned with Gospel Herald for more update.
