Fans get a good glimpse of the game’s combat mechanics, as Spider-Man uses objects around him to batter his enemies.
The fast-paced action seen in the new gameplay features Spider-Man’s superhuman agility to dodge attacks, swing between objects, and navigate through tight areas.
The game looks to be taking cues from the combat of the Batman: Arkham series, with counters combo counters being essential when fighting opponents. The location/set piece also looks impressive, with clear and defined shadows rendered as Spider-Man swings to his destinations.
Spider-Man is set to release exclusively for PS4 on Sept. 7, 2018
