Sony and Insomniac Games have announced that Spider-Man will be slinging onto PS4 on September 7th.
The console exclusive has been in production at the Ratchet & Clank and Resistance developer for the last few years. We’ve caught the odd glimpse of it at industry events throughout that time, but the announcement of a release date suggests a big E3 this year for Spidey.
Early footage has been very reminiscent of Rocksteady’s terrific Batman Arkham series with the web-slinger bounding about a bunch of goons, wrapping them up and smacking them about. Swinging through New York City looks hugely thrilling too, capturing the hero’s iconic speed and movement.
Basically, we’re pretty excited about this one.
We’ve also got our first look at the game’s collector’s edition over on the PlayStation Blog. It’ll come with a custom steelbook, mini artbook, Spider-Man statue, white spider sticker and three post-launch DLC chapters. Pre-orders get some digital goodies including the Spidey Suit Pack, Spider Drone Gadget, PS4 theme, PS4 avatar and five extra skill points.
Spider-Man will be released exclusively for PS4 on September 7th.
