E3 Day 2 Roundup: Sony and Ubisoft Get Weird

E3 2018 Sony Shows Off More of Insomniac's Spider-Man E3 2018: See all the best from Sony's showcase

This time we learned Norman Reedus' character is some sort of courier, but that hardly sheds any light on the rain that accelerates time, babies that live in chest-mounted tanks or the invisible umbilical beasts that have appeared throughout the trailers. Sony's E3 press conferences of the last few years have brought trailers by the bucket load, lighting up your eyes with dozens of game announcements and barely slowing down to take a breath.

Developed by Sony Interactive Entertainment, Marvel and Insomniac Games for PlayStation 4, Spider-Man is a PS4 exclusive that fans have been awaiting for a long time.

You can't have a great Spider-Man game without great web-swinging, and that's easily the best part of Spider-Man so far. That's just one bad guy away from a Sinister Six!

"This is the first win for Midtown since Peter Parker claimed the yet-to-be renamed Wilson Fisk Science Prize over seven years ago".

Forza Horizon 4 release date, trailer, gameplay details and more
The game launched with a number of race types, including drift, rally, and more standard, point-to-point races. Instead, with the wealth of content shown at E3 2018 , Microsoft is playing the long game here.

It's always seemed like the game was meant to be Marvel's answer to the Arkham Batman games, and this trailer suggests it will easily live up those lofty aims. 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. And there's also a tantalizing cliffhanger that will surely make a few people eager to try out the game for themselves. Here we learn about a new villain - this was later confirmed in a PlayStation blogcast.

Sony held its E3 2018 presentation last night and showed off a whole mess of trailers.

Oh, and nearly 7 minutes of Spider-Man, including six popular villains. But Spider-Man 2 fixed that, and it turned swinging into something that was simultaneously skill-based and effortless. Still, we knew enough about the game going in to sort of understand what was going on.
