Sony unveils new "Spider-man" game at E3 expo

Adjust Comment Print

Spider-Man PS4 got a new gameplay trailer at E3 2017, and it was definitely one of the highlights of the PlayStation press conference. The Lost Legacy launches on the PlayStation 4 on August 22.

Following their press confrece at E3 yesterday, Sony focused on its triple-A titles and partners, with some VR and indie titles shown during the pre-show stream. The publisher focused more on giving us game trailers as opposed to announcing new video games. Negative, but Insomniac's game will still "surprise people".

The event started with an extended trailer for Uncharted: The Lost Legacy and ended with an incredible look at Insomniac's Spider-Man game, which is coming in "early 2018".

Its media showcase was very heavy on its gaming titles, especially exclusive content such as Spider-Man, which Sony has foregrounded as the main difference between itself and console rival Microsoft.

The contract research services segment provides research and development support on a contract basis to pharmaceutical companies. The stock of London Stock Exchange Group Plc (LON:LSE) has "Buy" rating given on Wednesday, September 16 by Beaufort Securities.

Apart from Spider-Man, Sony also had some announcements that had gamers rejoicing, including a remake of the 2005 hit game Shadow of Colossus and the next installation of God of War, which is also an in-house favourite!

There's nothing new here other than that Sony is dipping back into their old treasure trove of great IP that came out during the PS2 era in order to sell people old popular games with a new coat of paint. We got a look at just how Spider-Man will utilize spider sense, different uses of web shooters, and some pretty incredible ways to take down bad guys. The most recent game Spider-Man starred in before Spider-Man PS4 was the mobile game Spider-Man: Unlimited with the lead role voiced by Yuri Lowenthal. It's sad to see that The Last of Us 2 was missing from the show.

Sony's big conference kicks off at 6pm PDT/9pm EDT/2am BST (and yes, I'm in the United Kingdom so thanks Sony!).

We saw a new trailer from Call of Duty: WW2, which is out November 3.
