Does whatever little a spider can at E3.
Wow, now that’s impressive. The E3 reveal trailer for the new Spiderman game by Insomniac was actually in-engine footage, in real-time, not pre-rendered. Given Insomniac’s record with the Resistance series, which pushed the PS3 to its graphical limits, and Ratchet and Clank, the latest outing of which looks almost as good as CGI on PS4 we’re not too surprised on this score.
After Spiderman’s outing, and widespread fan disbelief that what was showed was actual in-game footage, Insomniac took to Twitter and posted “We just showed gameplay last night.”
Even more surprising is that the Spiderman footage was running off a plain ol’ PS4. With Sony and Microsoft having officially confirmed their mid-gen console refreshes, it wouldn’t even be deceptive marketing to out too-good-to-be-true footage at E3, since both actually have hardware now that (at least on paper) can push high-fidelity visuals sans downgrades.
Insomniac further confirmed that Spiderman will be an open world title, with a “completely original story and universe.”
