Sony revealed more of Insomniac’s Spider-Man game during its Electronic Entertainment Expo event today in Los Angeles. Spider-Man is coming out on September 7 for PlayStation 4.

The new demo showed Spider-Man thwarting a prison escape. During it he encounters some of his most famous enemies: Electro, Rhino, Scorpion, and the Vulture.

This is one of Sony’s biggest PlayStation 4 games for the rest of the year. Spider-Man is one of the most popular super heroes in the world, and his web-slinging abilities have always translated well to the world of video games. Insomniac has a history of working on games with unique weapons, notably the Ratchet & Clank series.

Spider-Man is famous in part because his rogue’s gallery is one of the best in comics. The demo also showed a thrilling sequence where Spider-Man chases Electro outside the prison facility.


Three top investment pros open up about what it takes to get your video game funded.
