Ever since Spider-Man 2 on PlayStation 2 Spider-Man games have been held to the highest standard for open world superhero games. And while not all of them have managed to live up to the level we have seen from previous editions we have super high hopes for the new Spider-Man game from Insomniac.
We first saw the stunning looking Spider-Man game at E3 some time ago and have been hunting endlessly for a release date, which dropped overnight and it’s this year! September 7th is the officially announced date for Spidey but you will only be able to get it on PlayStation 4 as the publisher has already announced it will not be released on XBox.
The exclusive deal is not a surprise with Insomniac already having a pedigree of titles which are PlayStation exclusive like Spyro and of course the Ratchet & Clank series. Insomniac’s history with Sony and the healthy PlayStation footprint clearly is enough to keep them comfortable.
But what about you? Are you excited for the new Spider-Man game? If you do not already have a PlayStation 4 will this be enough for you to pick one up? Do you think Kraven was really the weakest link in the Sinister Six? Let us know in the comments down below!
Spider-Man will be released on PlayStatation 4 for Australia on September 7th this year.
