5. Spider-Man

  • Releasing: September 2018

The much anticipated, standalone game and will tell its own unique story independent from the events portrayed in the movies.

Characters such as Peter Parker, Miles Morales and Mary Jane were confirmed in recent trailers, showing that the game is placing a big focus on narrative.

You will play as everyone's friendly neighbourhood superhero in an open world action-adventure title. You'll be free to explore the city of Manhattan by foot or in the air by swinging across sprawling skyscrapers and suburbs.

Environmental combat, parkour and stealth are core elements of gameplay with abilities you can unlock and upgrade while progressing. We hope the level of content matches the scope of Spider-Man's world.
