The new Spider-Man game for the PlayStation 4 has been incredibly well received, winning our Game of the Show gong by a country mile. But if there’s been any criticism levelled at the exclusive, it’s been the slow swinging speed. That’s prompted developer Insomniac Games to come out and clarify: it’s all skill-based, and proficient players will move faster.
“Skilled players can move faster than we showed [in the E3 2017 demo],” a spokesperson for the studio wrote on social media. “We wanted to keep the helicopter in view.” Which all makes sense of course: we’re looking forward to seeing Spidey bolt his way through the city in future demos of the game.
