During PlayStation's E3 press briefing tonight, it was revealed that Marvel and Insomniac Games collaborated on a brand-new Spider-Man game exclusively for PlayStation 4.
"People see me and think they're safer," says Peter Parker/Spider-Man, who is described as being experienced, more masterful at fighting crime. "But it's not really me they're seeing. Probably for the best. Knowing that everything hinges on a guy from Queens sounds as scary as it feels. No pressure, right?"
Marvel Entertainment also provided answers to three key questions regarding the game.
Why Spider-Man? Because when Stan Lee and Steve Ditko created Peter Parker, they broke the mold of what a Super Hero could be and set the bar by which all others would be judged. And that's exactly what we plan to do with this game: break the mold and set a new bar of greatness for Marvel Games!
Why Insomniac? Insomniac is a perfect match for Spider-Man because not only are they world class game developers that make phenomenal story-driven experiences, but they also craft games bursting with personality, humor and most importantly: fun…just like Spidey!
Why PlayStation? The PlayStation 4 is one of the most exciting gaming platforms ever! But not only have they created a great gaming console, they also have an amazing line-up of first party titles and a community of the most passionate players that we are thrilled to join.

Starring the world's most iconic Super Hero, Spider-Man PS4 (working title) features the acrobatic abilities, improvisation and web-slinging that the wall-crawler is famous for, while also introducing elements never-before-seen in a Spider-Man game. From traversing with parkour and utilizing the environment, to new combat and blockbuster set pieces, it's Spider-Man unlike any you've played before.
Marvel and Insomniac Games have teamed up to create a brand-new and authentic Spider-Man story. This isn't the Spider-Man you've met before, or seen in a movie. This is an experienced Peter Parker who's more masterful at fighting big crime in New York City. At the same time he's struggling to balance his chaotic personal life and career while the fate of nine million New Yorkers rests upon his shoulders.
