New ‘Spider-Man’ Trailer Teases Old-School Villains Electro, Scorpion, More

Insomniac debuted a new gameplay trailer for its eagerly awaited “Spider-Man” game at PlayStation’s E3 presser Monday night. The footage showed classic “Spider-Man” villains Electro, Rhino, Scorpion, and the Vulture breaking all the inmates out of the Raft, the Avengers’ off-shore underwater prison.

“Our team is thrilled to finally show you more of what you’ll be up against in ‘Marvel’s Spider-Man,'” Insomniac said in a blog post. “Things heat up for Spider-Man, as many of the Super Villains he has put away over his eight years as Spidey have escaped simultaneously. This is a pivotal moment in the game, where the fragile peace in New York City has now been completely shattered [and] Super Villains have now escaped the maximum-security facility, the Raft, just off the coast of Manhattan. Worse, as you saw at the end of the gameplay video, Spider-Man is no match on his own in the one-vs.-five situation. These are dire times in Marvel’s New York City.”

Sony held its PlayStation E3 conference on June 11 at 1 p.m. PT. The 2018 Electronic Entertainment Expo takes place this week, from June 12 to June 14, at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Twitch’s official coverage of the event began in earnest Sunday afternoon.
