Despite his vast popularity as a comic book and movie star, “Spider-Man” has been notoriously absent from the world of video games for years. That’s about to change.
In 2018, the game studio behind classics like “Ratchet & Clank” is planning to release the first major “Spider-Man” game in years. That image above? That’s the actual game!
Here’s everything we know about Spidey’s next big swing on game consoles.
First and foremost: This is the classic Peter Parker/Spider-Man you already know and love.
This isn’t an origin story, or a new spin on the classic formula — this is a familiar “Spider-Man.” Here’s how the game’s creative director, Bryan Intihar, describes it:
“Our Spider-Man features a 23-year-old Peter Parker who has become a masterful Spider-Man. While he may be more experienced, Peter and Spider-Man’s worlds continue to collide as he tries to juggle them.”
He can stick to walls. He can shoot webs. He’s got super-strength.
And yes, he lives in New York City. See the new One World Trade Center in the distance?
