Sony unveils new "Spider-man" game at E3 expo

Playstation E3 2017

Playstation E3 2017

Exactly this time past year, we got a great E3 reveal in the form of Spiderman for PS4. This isn't the Spider-Man you've met before, or seen in a movie. This fighting game is also scheduled to release in 2018, with no definite date in sight. Sony had a killer start to 2017, but Microsoft and Nintendo have a chance to take the second half.

On the software front, PS4's portfolio will continue to expand this year with highly anticipated games including Destiny 2 (Activision Publishing, Inc.), Star Wars™ Battlefront™ II (EA), Gran Turismo Sport, and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy (SIE WWS). The story trailer reveals Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross struggle and adventure to protect an Indian Artefact.

Shadow of the Colossus will be receiving a full remaster for the PlayStation 4!

During its presentation, Sony revealed a trailer of Horizon: Zero Dawn's first downloadable content. Maybe The Frozen Wilds DLC will help answer some of the questions we still have about Aloy.

It was created by the team behind The Last Guardian and ICO.

The bad news is there still isn't a release date for Days Gone, despite it now having been revealed over a year ago. The only problem? Every first party title we saw after that is scheduled for Early 2018 and beyond, leaving the latter half of 2017 looking a little sparse. Either way, the game looks pretty fantastic so far, with plenty of web-slinging and even a surprise cameo at the very end. One of the best games of all time is going to be rebuilt for the new generation. Sony announced that the company has sold 60.4 million PlayStation 4 games consoles since it launched just over three years ago.

Sony unveiled a handful of PlayStation VR games, including a few familiar titles like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and some originals. Incidentally, both of these games are slated for release next year. We then get some hints about the story, which seemingly will involve some free androids attempting to free others from captivity. Hollywood-class stunts and incredible visuals, though quite how much gaming is required it's not clear - it looked more like an interactive cut scene to me, with prompts to wildly tap certain buttons at the right moment. While I did wind up getting my first two games, Bayonetta was out of stock, so a staff member recommended Batman: Arkham - and I went with it.

Next, another VR title, this one from Playful games.

It looks like more Uncharted. The only slight misstep was an overlong trailer for Quantic Dream's Detroit, which, although promising, raised a few chuckles by focusing on a war against what looked like an Apple store. I could not be more excited. However, the event largely focused upon delivering extra footage for the likes of God of War, Spider-Man and Detroit: Become Human, and while it's always great to receive a closer look at games that are just over the horizon, it doesn't exactly make for the most compelling E3 press conference.
