Marvel went behind the scenes in Marvel’s Spider-Man with Insomniac Games developers to create “a sense of flow, a fluid-y momentum” web-swinging mechanics.
The developers wanted a simple control scheme that is easy to learn and also have depth for experience players.
When the developers were building New York City, they wanted the city to be a “super hero’s playground”. It means that every and all surfaces can be traveled on. The trickiest was the fire escapes which now Spider-Man can web-tunneled through.
Marvel’s Spider-Man is launching exclusively on PlayStation 4 on September 7.
