Spider-Man Launch Trailer Shows a Fateful Miles Morales Meeting, More Supervillain Action
The launch trailer for Marvel’s Spider-Man has officially arrived. Sony and Insomniac Games have dropped the trailer a little early, but make no mistake, Spider-Man isn’t that far off – you’ll be able to get your hands on the anticipated PS4 exclusive in just over three weeks.
The gameplay launch trailer (Perhaps we’re getting a cinematic launch trailer, too?) features plenty of web-slinging and supervillain-punching, but the most significant moment happens right at the beginning when we see Spider-Man’s first fateful meeting with Miles Morales (aka Ultimate Spider-Man). Insomniac has been hinting at Miles’ role in the game for months, but have refused to confirm anything. Given all the teasing, Ultimate Spidey pretty much has to be in the game, but, y’know…try to act surprised when it’s finally revealed. Anyways, enough rambling – check out the trailer, below!

I got a chance to go hands-on with Spider-Man at E3, and, for the most part, I came away impressed…
“While I walked away from my hands-on time with Spider-Man with a few quibbles about the game’s traversal, there’s no denying Insomniac’s comic book romp grabbed me. . While I’m generally satisfied to try most E3 demos once and move on, I snuck back for seconds and third helpings of the game and was tempted indulge in even more. Spider-Man doesn’t reinvent the open-world superhero template established by Batman: Arkham City, but it sands off some of the rough edges, creating a light, accessible, open-world adventure a broad range of gamers and comic book fans ought to get wrapped up in.”
Marvel’s Spider-Man swings onto PS4 on September 7.
