Insomniac's new Spider-Man trailer shows off a sinister group of villains

Playstation

Ghost of Tsushima

Our team is thrilled to finally show you more of what you'll be up against in Marvel's Spider-Man. In one of the side activities shown, we see Spidey taking on waves of Kingpin's henchmen on a rooftop, and what's interesting is that several enemies are left to fall to their doom. It means that you can end up where Sony are right now, with no new first party games to announce, and yet with a gallery of games that they aren't prepared to pin release dates on, Spider-Man excepting.

Unlike some of the less faithful Spider-Man games, you'll have to attach your webs to actual buildings and can't magically swing from the sky. We'll find out when Spider-Man hits PS4 on September 7.

The footage above showcases the kind of samurai experience that we've been wanting from a video game for a long time.

Watch the footage below.

In an extended gameplay trailer for Spider-Man on PS4, your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man had to take on thugs and supervillains aplenty after a breakout on the prison island known as The Raft. It seems like you won't be playing as William, the protagonist from the first game, but we'll have to wait for more info.

So far, the classic Spider-Man villains include Electro, the Rhino, Scorpion, and our old favorite, the Vulture. 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. Our guess is on Doctor Octopus or the Green Goblin.

The biggest takeaway here is the fluid movements that allow Spider-Man to replicate many of his most impressive moves from the comics.
