A new Spider-Man game was announced to be in development by Insomniac during last year's E3, but it's only now we've discovered how the game plays.
An extensive trailer was shown during Sony's conference this afternoon. It followed the web-slinger sneaking up on goons, to fighting goons, to fighting a mini-boss, and taking on a helicopter.
Stealth appears to play a part in the game, as the first part of the demo had Spidey silencing a squad of mobsters in a construction site. The movement mechanics are reminiscent of the Arkham series, allowing the player to zip up to ledges and surfaces as indicators appear.
The combat also rang a few bells of the Arkham games, with the web-crawler punching and darting from one opponent to the another.
Quick-time events were also prevalent during the many cinematic moments.
No exact release date was given, but the game is confirmed for sometime 2018.
