In the wake of yesterday’s Spider-Man release reveal, developer Insomniac Games dropped various other nuggets of info across news-sites and twitter regarding the web-slingers upcoming PS4 adventure. There are some character reveals upcoming, so if you want to stay dark on the game, best step aside.

Spider-Man will have an intricate suit-crafting mechanic, which will allow players to give Parker all sorts of different looks, mostly based on his appearance in comics, series and movies since he first showed up, way back in 1962. The game will also have a Photo Mode, naturally, given Parker’s role at The Daily Bugle.

In terms of story, the narrative will take place over several weeks. Mary-Jane Watson, who is playable, “is going to surprise a lot of people,” Insomniac told Game Informer in their exclusive interview. Villains include Kingpin, Mr. Negative and Shocker. It was also mentioned that one of my personal faves, Black Cat, will be putting in an appearance as part of the game’s DLC. Still no sign of Jessica Drew… sigh

New York will be full of side-quests and objective grinds, such as taking photos, stopping street crimes, and taking down Kingpin’s outposts. In-game locations include The Avengers Tower and the Wakandan Embassy, but Insomniac are keeping tight-lipped on whether any of the site’s respective characters will be showing up in the story.

Regarding hardware, Spider-Man will run at 4K on PS4 Pro and will feature HDR on both versions of Sony’s black box. Both consoles will lock the game to 30 FPS. It has also been reiterated that the game will be microtransaction free. No doubt, as the months pass and with E3 just around the corner, we’ll learn a lot more about this exciting project.

Spider-Man launches on PS4 September 7.
