New Spider-Man Game Will Not Be Tied To Spider-Man: Homecoming

When Insomniac Games revealed its upcoming Spider-Man game for the Playstation 4 at E3, fans were wondering if it had any connection to the film Spider-Man: Homecoming. Bryan Intihar of Insomniac and Bill Rosemann from Marvel say the game is not tied with the film at all, and the game will depiect an older and more experienced Spider-Man.

“It’s standalone. I think we’ve been inspired by all the different mediums that Marvel has, whether it’s film, animation, live-action, comic books, even t-shirts. So we’re looking at everything and we’re blending it all together. But it’s standalone; all new story, all new world. We’re always stretching, we’re always challenging, we’re always moving the characters forward.”

“For me, it’s about respecting the traditions of the franchise but mixing things up.”

It is surprising that Insomnicac has freedom to do what they want for the game. The new Spider-Man game will feature:

“Someone who’s been doing this for more than a couple of years; we want to make sure his fighting style reflects that. To us, Peter is as important as the Spider-Man character. We’re going to push him in some areas, whether it’s traversal, whether it’s fighting, whether it’s just open world exploration,” he explained. “Peter is a really smart guy. How does that tie into his life not just as Peter Parker but when he brings (his intelligence) to the fight?”

Insomniac has not revealed any other details about gameplay elements, but did say Parker’s intelligence will come as he moves throughout the world.

“We’re going to push him in some areas, whether it’s traversal, whether it’s fighting, whether it’s just open world exploration,” he explained. “Peter is a really smart guy. How does that tie into his life not just as Peter Parker but when he brings (his intelligence) to the fight?”
