E3 Day 2 Roundup: Sony and Ubisoft Get Weird

Last of Us II will probably emphasize on stealth-styled gameplay, and going by what we have seen with the previous game, this will definitely offer a lot more.

That's what Ghost of Tsushima captures, in the very best way, based on an in-depth trailer shown at Sony's PlayStation press conference at E3.

When we last saw Spider-Man for PlayStation 4 at E3 2017, he was facing off against a figure we eventually learned was the old Marvel villain Mister Negative. The fighting mechanics look to be ripped directly from Batman: Arkham Knight, complete with the "Fear" mechanic appearing as Spider-Man's "Spider Sense" moments. That's just one bad guy away from a Sinister Six!

The Sony conference at E3 was the first time any gameplay footage was revealed from the PS4 exclusive.

"This is the first win for Midtown since Peter Parker claimed the yet-to-be renamed Wilson Fisk Science Prize over seven years ago". It's reminiscent of the likes of the PS2's Spider-Man 2, one of the most beloved movie tie-in games ever, albeit much more technically accomplished and utilizing the full capabilities of the PS4.

The trailer showed off a demo from the ninth day of the Mongol Invasion of Japan, and kicked off with the protagonist Jin wandering the gorgeous Japanese countryside. But did our intrepid reporter spot the Avengers themselves in-game? This is an experienced Peter Parker who's more masterful at fighting big crime in New York City.

Marvel Comics recently released an image teasing the cast of Spider-Men likely to star in the company's upcoming Spidergeddon event. Along the way, Spider-Man will have to confront at least five of his greatest foes. It's available to pre-order right here.
