Arguably the biggest winner from Sony’s PS Showcase this week was Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, with its gameplay reveal attracting an absolutely colossal amount of attention. At the time of writing, the official PlayStation upload of the gameplay footage has attracted over 7.4 million views, while the Marvel version is sitting above 9.1 million. This, of course, excludes all the various other mirrors that exist around the web – as well as the Kraven the Hunter cinematic, which was uploaded separately by Sony.
The 10 minute unveiling includes a lot of footage from Insomniac Games’ sequel, showcasing Peter Parker’s symbiote suit, the ability to seamlessly switch to Miles Morales, and a glimpse of the region of Queens. The gameplay generally just looks a lot faster and denser, too – and that’s exciting, because the original was no slouch to start with.
Clearly this is going to be one of the biggest games of the year, and while there’s no release date right now, the developer has said that more information on that front is coming very soon. How hyped are you for this sequel? Embrace your inner-edgelord in the comments section below.
