Spider-Man PS4 has finally got a September release date. Insomniac Games, beloved video game developer who has produced knockout hits like Sunset Overdrive and Ratchet & Clank - have spent several years on a new Spider-Man game in partnership with Sony Interactive Entertainment.

During the morning, PlayStation Blog announced a release date for Marvel’s Spider-Man PS4, putting many worries on delay. It releases on September 7, 2018. A September release should not surprise many, due to various leaks circulating a late 2018 statement. Making the game one of several PlayStation exclusives hitting the platform. See the trailer above

Peter Parker is 23 years old and interning at a laboratory while about to graduate from college. Peter has been Spider-Man for eight years and has settled into his role as protector of New York City. Early in the story, Spider-Man defeats Wilson Fisk. Afterward, a new gang emerges known as the Inner Demons who are now taking over Fisk's territory. Spider-Man then arrives at a construction site owned by Kingpin and must defend Kingpin's men who are under attack by the Inner Demons. While fending off the Inner Demons from the construction site, Peter learns that Martin Li, one of New York's most prominent philanthropists leads the Inner Demons under his alter-ego Mister Negative. Martin runs the F.E.A.S.T. shelters located across the city which complicates things for Peter's personal life as his Aunt May works at F.E.A.S.T.

MARVEL

Sony’s PlayStation library has built a solid reputation throughout the last couple years with The Last of Us, Uncharted and Horizon: Zero Dawn receiving crazy amounts of positive outlooks. Making the deal all more exciting, because Spider-Man has been in a bottomless pit with frankly appalling video game adaptations all failing to hit the level of quality seen in previous generations. The new Spider-Man PS4 game was first announced at the Sony PlayStation Conference at E3 2016, but finally, the web-slinger will be jumping onto store shelves later in the year.

In addition to a release date, the above announcement video also showed off some new gameplay as well as a Spidey Suit pre-order bonus pack, which includes three alternate costumes. At the moment, only one has been revealed: the Spider-Punk Suit. The second suit’s reveal is “coming soon,” while the third will be unveiled this July. It’s possible that one of the other two outfits is the Spider-Man: Homecoming costume, which may have been revealed in the prior footage. Furthermore, a pre-order comes with a Spider-Drone Gadget, a Spider-Man PSN Avatar, a Spider-Man PS4 Theme, and five extra skill points.

But are you excited about the release? Let us know in the comment section below.
