PlayStation E3 2018 Recap: Best of Sony at E3 2018

Spider-Man comes to PS4 on September 7.

This one will definitely get ever hack-and-slash fan hyped, because we are finally going to get an open-world samurai game.

It's important to note that while the presser footage debuted the first boss fight in the game, this new footage - taken right out of the E3 floor demo - showcases the first boss fight in actual gameplay footage.

The first and most obvious suspect is the Kingpin, who hates Spider-Man for his constant interference in his operations. After an intermission as journalists were shuffled into a different room (during which we saw e.g. a recap of games Sony had already announced), we got a shakuhachi performance, similar to The Last of Us II having a banjo perfomance from Gustavo Santaolalla before its gameplay earlier. After his beatdown, Spider-Man looked up, said something along the lines of, "it's you?" just before the trailer went dark. As with every Death Stranding trailer before it, this footage will need to be watched and rewatched dozens of times to uncover its deeper meanings.

This stunning game from Sucker Punch, the makers of Sly Cooper and Infamous, features incredible visuals, a sweeping soundtrack, a methodical combat system reminiscent of what we've seen in God of War, and a lot of promising design choices. They were soon joined by familiar faces from Spider-Man's rogues gallery, including Rhino, Scorpion, Vulture, and Mister Negative.

Sony was content with letting the trailer speak for itself, giving it little in the way of introduction and saying nothing about the game afterward.

The new trailer kicked off with Spidey and his pal Yuri Watanabe investigating a disturbance at supervillain prison the Raft, before the two were quickly attacked by Electro.

Spider-Man is not only taking over our big screens - in both animated and live-action form - but our video game screens.
