After a four-year wait, Marvel and Sony finally gives us a new and improved Spider-Man game which comes out on Sept. 7 for the PlayStation 4 and PS4 Pro.

This years concept doesn’t follow the storyline of the recent Spider-Man movie, “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” as previous video games had, but rather focuses on both the perspectives of Peter Parker and Spider-Man. Peter Parker a 23-year-old who just graduated college begins to figure out how to manage his personal life while also being the protector of New York. At this point, Parker has been Spider-Man for eight years so he has mastered his craft and is well aware of his abilities while he saves the city from Wilis Fisk who runs a criminal empire under the alter ego Kingpin.

With a new storyline, developers, and studio working on this PS4 exclusive, it  has become one of the most anticipated games of the year. Insomniac Games are the masterminds behind “Sunset Overdrive,” “Spyro” and “Ratchet & Clank” to name a few, as they’re notorious for their single players games.

With Insomniac taking over, fans have huge expectations for this years game as the previous two games lacked in story development, graphics and various glitches found all throughout the game. The past two videos games made by video game company Beenox “The Amazing Spider-Man” and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” didn’t resonate well with fans of the original Spider-Man games made by Treyarch.

Marvel’s Spider-Man is an action adventure open world game played in the third person perspective. Insomniac adds refined and improved web slinging into the game with the ability to wall crawl as well. As environmental combat, quick time events, and stealth will be big factors in the game along with new combat mechanics such as finishing moves, spider sense, reflexes, and aerial combat. There are three suits that each have different powers that you unlock for preordering the game. You can unlock more suits for playing the game and completing missions.
