Marvel's PS4 Spider-Man : How Insomniac Brought The Web-Slinger Back From The Grave

Article title fixed :D

Spiderman like any other hero game has had some hits and missed. I think Insomniac changed things up and brought out a really great game. I am not a big Marvel fan I am a DC fan but I enjoyed this Spiderman game can't wait for Spiderman 2 and I am eager to see what Insomniac can do with Wolverine. I would like to see Insomniac take on another hero game with their talented staff.


Marvel's Spider-Man 2 Confirmed To Release In The Middle East

Despite initial rumors of a ban due to LGBTQ+ content, Marvel's Spider-Man 2 is confirmed for release in the Middle East.


Yes, Spider-Man 2 Has Fall Damage, But You Can Toggle It On/Off

If you want to add more challenge in Spider-Man 2, players will have an option to enable a feature that will allow Peter Parker or Miles Morales to take fall damage as they traverse through New York City.


When you switch between Miles and Peter, you'll see the other swinging around town

You'll see Peter Parker doing his thing while swinging around as Miles Morales, and vice-versa in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.

I know right? so you basically can follow the other one and watch him do his thing around the city? So cool indeed!

It’s crazy how Insomniac became the peak developer. Honestly their games are so good and so polished. Things like this and even the subway ride for fast travel on PS4 were little details that added so much.

It's called vision and investment. Compare Insomniac before Sony's acquisition to after. They were a solid studio before, now they're one of the world's best making one of PlayStation's biggest system sellers.

That's what this industry needs.

I have a sneaking suspicion that Sony is keeping tight lipped on its other titles to give all the attention to Spider-Man, because there's just no way Sucker Punch, Naughty Dog's new single player IP, Media Molecule, Housemarque, and the rest are just idling. Santa Monica and Guerrilla Games are probably still a long way from revealing any new projects. And we already know Wolverine is next from Insomniac.

CobraKai1d 12h ago

Yeah. Hearing absolutely nothing from Naughty Dog, who i thought was the peak dev before insomniac took over, and Sucker Punch is highly suspect, or “sus”. GG is probably hard at work for the next Horizon game and still supporting the last one so im not surprised if they haven’t announced anything. Im hoping ND isnt just gonna reveal TLOU 3.

The news indicated that Naughty Dog was working on a new IP so I doubt it's The Last of Us Part 3. Naughty Dog usually has 4 to 6 year development cycles so they're into their new game.

Ghost of Tsushima came out 3 years ago so it's likely Sucker Punch are neck deep in their new project - I would estimate a release by 2025.

Bluepoint are also working on their next game, it's been 3 years since Demon's Souls.

Many of Sony's studios released massive games in the first half of the generation so it's going to take time to hit the next wave.

You know this same feature was invented in GTA5, right?

1) We're not talking about the feature, we're talking about how Insomniac grew from being a solid, decent developer to one of the best.

2) Not sure what point you think you're making. We all know GTA5 was ambitious and amazing for its time to pull this off, no one is saying Spider-Man 2 invented it. But GTA5 required loading and compromised graphics to achieve it. Spider-Man 2 does it with almost no loads and high fidelity visuals including ray tracing, which is obviously an upgrade. And people are excited because they thought when you're playing as one Spidey the other would not be in the game world.

You guys need to get quality of life improvements through your head. Spider-Man was perfectly possible on PS4 but it required lengthy loads to enter and exit bases, fast travel loads, compromised visuals and 30fps. On PS5 there's almost no loading, the world is seamlessly travelled through and performance and graphics are peaked. It's obviously better.

@CobraKai ND is the peak dev at PS. All of their games get 93+ Meta, and dominate GOTY awards. When was the last time Insomniac got a 90+ Meta game that won GOTY? The reason why ND takes so long to make their games just like Rockstar, is because they’re among the most quality and detailed games in the industry.

I don’t vest in metacritic. I feel like Insomniac tends to have a more varied portfolio of games. Spider-Man became my favorite game on the PS4 and Ratchet and Clank on PS5 looks rivals CGI movies. Don’t get me wrong, Uncharted 4 was a masterpiece as was the 2 TLOUs, but maybe if their next game is something completely different, they’ll be the top again.
