E3 2018: New Marvel Spider-Man Footage Shows Some Main Villains

Adjust Comment Print

It's been a little over half a year since Ghost of Tsushima was first revealed, and since then, we've seen very little of it.

Shacknews is on the scene at E3 2018, with a hands-on with the new Spider-Man game from Insomniac Games.

The first and most obvious suspect is the Kingpin, who hates Spider-Man for his constant interference in his operations.

The stunning gameplay clip released at E3 takes the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man out of the neighborhood and into The Raft, a maximum security prison where Electro is attempting to bust out a bunch of criminals to run loose in New York City.

"When we hit upon the Mongol invasion of Tsushima of 1274, it all clicked", explains Nate Fox, Game Director at Sucker Punch. After his beatdown, Spider-Man looked up, said something along the lines of, "it's you?" just before the trailer went dark.

That doesn't mean that these games don't look excellent, though.

Watch the footage below.

We'll bring you more details as they emerge. My one gripe with the combat is that it nearly felt too frenetic at times - there were moments where Spidey felt too slippery for my liking, and also instances when the game's camera seemed to have a mind of its own. The footage introduced to the game four classic villains: Rhino, Vulture, Scorpion and Electro, in addition to the already announced Mister Negative. The artful trailer showed off a boarding school setting, and the girl you're trying to make contact with as a time-manipulating spirit. The game's recreation of New York City is vibrant, vast and painstakingly authentic-looking, and the suits of characters like Spider-Man and Shocker were incredibly detailed and bursting with color.
