For the last 2 years, we’ve been eating up any morsel of new content Insomniac Games and Sony would share for the upcoming Spider-Man game. Today was no different, when GameInformer had the honor of showing off a well-designed cover art, for our friendly neighborhood hero, and new footage to go along with it.

The new footage mainly shows Spider-Man web-slinging through this expansive open world, but it’s what the developers say that really make this video so interesting. For starters, we’re playing as an established, adult Peter Parker, for the most part. Throughout the game, we’ll get to experience life without the suit as Peter has to balance every day life with being New York’s greatest superhero. No doubt, J. Jonah Jameson will provide a big portion of the stress Parker will be inflicted with.
Additionally, it’s been revealed that Insomniac’s Spider-Man will be flush with new Spidey-suits that will be crafted by a “suit mechanic”, which is essentially a way of saying that the game will allow you to upgrade and add new features to your suit. That’s a welcome addition to a game that we know is mostly narrative-based.
GameInformer was pretty mum on the rest of the details, but they’ll have more to say in the coming days and in the May issue. To read more of their preview article, click here.
What we do know is that Insomniac Games is looking to announce the release date tomorrow, so come back for that announcement!
