Spider-Man’s a good guy, and he traditionally doesn’t take lives. You may have noticed in this week’s E3 2017 trailer how the hero made extra effort to scoop up debris and avoided endangering the public. But what about when you’re released into the open world to do what you want? Or when you’re fighting bad guys on a rooftop and kick one over the edge?
Well, incredibly, Insomniac Games has created contingency animations that will show Spidey saving lives in the heat of battle. “Certain abilities he’ll do during combat to prevent people from dying,” creative director Bryan Intihar told Kotaku, adding: “So whether it’s about deciding where stuff gets placed or how it unfolds, Spider-Man’s not gonna be killing people. That’s not the game we want to make.”
