Spiderman PS4: Peter Parker’s Alter Ego Discussed

Insomniac’s Spiderman PS4 has created a lot of hype for itself, fans are very much excited to see what’s in store. Although we know a thing or two about the game already, we know too little about Peter Parker as a character. Fortunately, creators have spared a few points.

Of course, we all know the original story of Spiderman; a college graduate bitten by a radioactive spider at the age of 15, struggling with life love and all that.

What most of us are interested in, is that, how will the character play out in the new Spiderman game. We all have a feeling that this upcoming Spiderman PS4’s character will be somewhat different from the basic perception we have of this hero.

According to the creative director Bryan Intihar; the development team has not focused on the origin of the story, that said, he still gets bitten by a spider, but perhaps the game will focus on his alter ego.

Furthermore, he added that players will uncover elements of the character’s backstory mostly by collecting Peter’s old backpacks scattered about the city.

The reason for the focus on Spiderman is that this story takes place well after Peter Parker became Spiderman and the developers did not want to tell the story which everyone already knew.

Bryan Intihar adding more to the character said that, in the game, Peter Parker is on a different point in his life, where his alter ego, Spiderman side of life is doing good compared to Peter Parker’s life.

Insomniac writer Jon Paquette said that they have worked very closely with the Marvel’s executive creative director Bill Rosemann on the story of the game and according to him the best Spiderman stories are the ones in which, Peter Parker and Spiderman’s worlds collide.

So what we can take from this is that perhaps, Spiderman PS4 will be colliding these two worlds one way or the other.

One of the most interesting thing as added by Christos Gage, who is a longtime writer for Marvel comics and has co-written the game’s script. He said that players can expect a lot of single liners from the Spiderman character.

Intihar said that one of the few things that have been kept alive in the character are its two different personalities.

As Spiderman, he is a confident person who speaks with a firm conviction but as Peter Parker, he lacks all the conviction and confidence. That is something which he said they could not have excluded.

Moreover, if you are interested in knowing how the web-slinging mechanics work in the game, there is a new video that has emerged and it gives a lot of insight on how the mechanics of the game work.

With all the positive vibe Insomniac has been giving to this game, there had to be a bad news or something. It seemed too good to be true and very recently Insomniac Games revealed that Spiderman PS4 will never come on Xbox One.

Ignoring that we can’t wait to get our hands on the game. So as soon as we hear something we will let you guys know.
