Sony's E3 press conference continued at a blistering pace.
During the 20 or so minutes I got to play Marvel's Spider-Man, I couldn't help but crack a big, dumb grin the entire time.
Set to be released exclusively on the PlayStation 4 on 7 September, Marvel's Spider-Man looks to be a pretty darn good game. At an extensive E3 presentation (two years after first unveiling the project at 2016's E3), the team gave examples of Spidey's powers, combat, and speed as he traversed NYC.
An achingly lovely trailer was debuted on the Sony stage last night, showing off the new title set in feudal Japan. And getting that final-release sheen combined with the swinging, the combat, and the trademark quips made me realize that I've wanted this game for almost a decade and a half - and it's absurd that we've had to wait so long for it. The Last of Us Part II's lengthy demo was exceptional, blending an exquisitely rendered cutscene that showed a moment of beauty in Ellie's life with a desperate, soul destroying fight for survival that takes the first game's brutality and dials it up several notches.
What is Ghost of Tsushima and when does it come out? Here is a quick description of Ghost of Tsushima "The year is 1274". Kingpin has been mentioned as a villain in this game, but has yet to be seen.
Unlike some of the less faithful Spider-Man games, you'll have to attach your webs to actual buildings and can't magically swing from the sky. But wait, Spider-Man wasn't actually the end of the show! They also revealed the release date for "Days Gone"- perhaps another game we'll hear more about at the showcase?
