Spider-Man fans are going crazy over the seven-minute trailer for the new Playstation game

Our Spider-Sense is tingling

Spider-Man is having quite a busy year. Tom Holland was one of the (admittedly many) scene-stealers in Avengers” Infinity War, and gave us the “I don’t feel so good, Mr Stark…” meme. And this Christmas, we are also getting the absolutely amazing-looking Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse animated movie, which will bring Miles Morales to the big screen for the first time.

Perhaps the most exciting non-comics Spidey property on the horizon though is the new Playstation 4 exclusive video game, simply titled Spider-Man. The game was first announced in 2016, and we’ve been patiently waiting for it ever since.

At E3 this year, along with titles like Death Stranding and The Last Of Us 2, Sony gave us another glimpse of the game. They released this seven minute gameplay video, and fans are going wild for it.

The clip features both cutscenes and gameplay, and it looks absolutely beautiful. Spidey has to deal with a breakout at The Raft, the Marvel Universe’s prison for supervillains, and faces up to plenty of familiar foes, including The Scorpion, The Vulture, Rhino, Electro and relative newcomer Mr Negative. And it ends on a cliffhanger, teasing a secret character reveal.

It also shows off the game’s free-flowing combat and open world gameplay, and it looks like a hell of a lot of fun to play.

It’s always seemed like the game was intended to be Marvel’s answer to the Arkham Batman games, and this trailer suggests it will easily live up those lofty aims.

Spider-Man is out September 7th.
