Spider-Man PS4: 9 Important Things We Want To See
Created by GameSpot Staff on
PS4-exclusive Spider-Man is set to release on September 7. First announced at E3 2016, Ratchet & Clank Developer Insomniac's game adaptation of the famous web slinger has been a longtime coming. And with the upcoming release of God of War, all eyes are starting to turn towards Spider-Man.
In the last two decades, Spider-Man has seen more good game adaptations than bad ones. Memorable high points include Spider-Man 2: The Game and Web of Shadows, but it's clear Insomniac has a high standard of quality to live up to. After all, the studio has been responsible for many of Sony's most iconic franchises, so fans have eagerly hoping the studio can deliver. But what does Insomniac need to do to make a new Spider-Man game stand out? We have a few more than a few ideas, seen in this gallery of nine things we want from the game.
Some of our ideas include giving the game a great emphasis on gadgets and skills than beating up goons, revamping what it means to be an open-world Spider-Man game, avoiding telling an origin story, and much more.
Up until now, news on Spider-Man on PS4 has been scarce. The game's release date was finally announced and new gameplay has been released showcasing city exploration and webslinging.
