In Marvel Comics, Peter Parker is a 23-year-old research assistant with superhuman abilities. He gained these abilities from the bite of a genetically modified spider. Peter decided to use them to protect the residents of New York City as Spider-Man.
The original Spider-Man game was released on PlayStation 4 in 2018. Critics and fans alike hailed it as a solid game. It became a fan favorite a few weeks after its release. Aside from its mixed lore, its graphics and storyline are what made it shine. Some dubbed them “jaw-dropping” and “spectacular,” respectively.
Insomniac did the story justice as their game beats other Spider-Man games by far. Players couldn’t keep themselves from getting emotionally invested while playing the game. Its many twists and turns kept them on the edges of their seats.
Insomniac makes a long-awaited announcement
Four years after its initial release, the wait is finally over! Insomniac Games announced the game will come to the Epic Games Store. It’ll be on Steam as well. The game, dropping on August 12, will be the remastered version with Peter’s face replaced. Debates about his appearance have been raging for years. Each player has their personal preferences.
Despite the game’s success, Sony has yet to release the game on the Xbox console. To date, you can only play Insomniac’s Spider-Man illegally on that console. Sony and Insomniac have not made any official statements about an Xbox release.
We definitely can’t wait to play as everyone’s favorite web-slinger real soon! We’re also excited to see the crazy awesome mods that may come in the wake of its release.
