Spider-Man PS4

Sony Interactive Entertainment and Insomniac Games’ Spider-Man for PlayStation 4 is the cover story for the May 2018 issue of Game Informer, the publication announced.

Insomniac Games also teased that Game Informer will reveal the release date for the game tomorrow, April 4.

Here is an overview of the magazine’s coverage, via Game Informer:

We played Insomniac Games’ Spider-Man, and we know its release date. The May issue of Game Informer is loaded with new details about the wall crawler’s highly anticipated return to video games. Our hands-on impressions reveal what you can expect from the open world – the missions, side activities, collectibles, and more. We also dive deep into the web-swinging controls, combat complexity, and surprisingly deep upgrade paths, which include suit crafting.

We spent two days in Insomniac’s studio learning about the development team’s vision for Spider-Man on PlayStation 4. The team said the best Spider-Man stories are when Spider-Man and Peter Parker’s worlds collide. That’s exactly what they want to achieve with this game.

Our 14-page article features new screenshots, concept art, and details from Insomniac’s creative director Bryan Intihar, game director Ryan Smith, art director Jacinda Chew, lead writer Jon Paquette, and more. We take you through the opening of the game, the first mission, and plenty of open-world exploration. We also reveal the names of villains you may or may not know.

In addition to its magazine coverage, Game Informer will begin a month of exclusive online coverage at its Spider-Man hub starting tomorrow, April 4, including gameplay footage that shows off the open world and combat, as well as Spider-Man wearing different suits. In the days that follow, the publication will post interviews with Insomniac Games developers.

Spider-Man is due out for PlayStation 4 in 2018.
