Now Playing: Spider-Man - E3 2016 PS4 Trailer

One of the surprises of Sony's E3 2016 briefing last week was the announcement of a new Spider-Man game for PlayStation 4. Sony revealed the project with a slick-looking trailer, spotlighting the web-crawler slinging his way around Manhattan.

Now, developer Insomniac Games has confirmed on Twitter (via DualShockers) that the trailer was shot in-game and in real time. The studio also said the footage was captured on the existing PlayStation 4, not the upcoming, more-powerful Neo.

This is not all that surprising, given Sony previously confirmed that all of its E3 2016 demos were running on the current PS4.

The Spider-Man announcement trailer (watch it again above) shows Spider-Man leaping around a cafe, before smashing through a window and landing on moving cars. He battles against an armed thug, using his webbing to tie him up to a passing lamp post.

He's later seen leaping from a building that looks to be collapsing and also hanging onto the side of a moving train. All in a day's work for your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.

You can see some images from the trailer below.
