SPIDER-MAN has quickly become one of the highlights of E3 2018 as the much-anticipated game debuted brand new footage.
Here’s everything you need to kn0w about when it’s released and the lowdown on the story’s villains and the gameplay demo…
Marvel Spider-Man swings on to the PS4 in September
When is Spider-Man PS4’s release date in the UK?
Sony has confirmed that Spider-Man will be released on September 7, 2018.
The game is a PS4 exclusive and developers Insomniac Games angered some fans when it announced that Spider-Man would save enemies rather than allowing them to die.
The game stars a more seasoned Peter Parker who will need to balance his chaotic personal life with his career and will not be based on any existing story.
It is available to pre-order now from Game and Tesco.
Marvel The collectors’ edition will include a post-launch DLC series with the anti-hero Black Cat
Is there a collectors edition?
Spider-Man also comes with two collectors editions, a digital deluxe version, and a physical collector’s edition.
The digital deluxe includes the post-launch DLC series Marvel’s Spider-Man: The City That Never Sleeps.
The three extra levels will each include a new storyline, added suits and the first chapter has already been titled the Heist and will involve Black Cat.
An added physical collector’s edition will include all of the above, as well as a steelbook case, a mini art book, and a Spider-Man statue.
Marvel Mister Negative is a lesser-known villain who was showcased in the trailers
Who are the villains?
Spiderman’s E3 footage introduced audiences to a few of Spider-Man’s worst enemies, six of them in fact, the same size as the infamous Sinister Six.
Electro, Rhino, Scorpion, The Vulture and the not so familiar Mr Negative all teamed up to attack Spidey before its revealed they are working for a mysterious sixth benefactor.
All villains bar Mr Negative have made feature film appearances and in the comics, Electro and Vulture were founding members of the Sinister Six.
What we know about the last villain is he supplied each member with new tech-enhance super suits and a wounded Spider-Man recognises him.
The two most obvious choices are Doctor Octopus and Green Goblin, who have yet to be mentioned thus far and have both led the Six before.
MARVEL Spider-Man will seemingly have to contend with a variation of the infamous Sinister Six
