We were treated to a gameplay demo of the new Spider-Man game. We see Spider-Man crash landing onto a prison, The RAFT, on an island in a storm where all of his greatest enemies are on the loose and looking to take Spidey down. We see Electro, Scorpion, Rhino, Vulture, Mister Negative, and  The gameplay is a bit similar to what we saw last year of Spider-Man chasing down a villain, Electro, while avoiding debris and web-slinging all around the prison.

Spider-Man eventually catches up to Electro only to be ambushed by all the villains at once. He falls in battle only to be met with the mysterious appearance of the main villain of the game, who we do not see, who is responsible for bringing all these villains together.

In a gameplay segment after the initial Sony show, we see a showcase of the open world of Spider-Man. We get a look at how fluid the web-slinging through New York City is. We also get to see how satisfying and diverse the combat in the game is. Not only do we see the kinds of attacks and combos you'll be able to pull off, we also get a look at some of the gadgets and suit powers that you'll be able to utilize throughout the game.


Spider-Man comes out September 7 exclusively on PlayStation 4. You can preorder Spider-Man now to get an early unlock of a Spidey Suit Pack, the Spider-Drone gadget, skill points to spend right away on your skill tree, as well as a PS4 theme and PSN avatar.
