“It’s been an incredible experience for us to spend the last few years working on this game,” writes James Stevenson, Community Director, Insomniac Games. “From getting to create our own unique universe and story for our favorite Super Hero, to working with our talented collaborators at PlayStation and Marvel Games, to developing relationships with the Spider-Man and Marvel fan communities (#SpideySquad represent!), it’s been an amazing journey thus far.”
Along with the release date we get the final box art, which features the popular Marvel superhero front and center. The game features an older Peter Parker who’s on the cusp of graduating from college. It’s set in an open-world New York City, and features web-slinging, wall-crawling, stealth, and action as Spidey tussles with a new gang called the Inner Demons.
