Insomniac Games creative director Bryan Intihar spoke with Kotaku regarding what to expect from the upcoming Spider-Man PS4 exclusive. Intihar revealed that Spider-Man will not be killing people in this game. So if you were expecting a playground Grand Theft Auto style of game, make sure you revise your expectations accordingly. The Insomniac developer was very clear about the non-killing aspect as he said,
It's certain scenarios we've put him in, certain abilities he'll do during combat to prevent people from dying…So whether it's about deciding where stuff gets placed or how it unfolds, Spider-Man's not gonna be killing people. That's not the game we want to make.
More intriguing perhaps was all the talk suggesting that Peter Parker will have his share of normal life gameplay. So you won't be Spider-Man all the time.
It can't just be Spider-Man 100 percent of the time…Peter Parker is integral to the character. In our game, you're gonna see Peter a lot in story and in gameplay. He has a job. He just graduated college, and he has his first job as a scientist.
Finally, it appears that the QTEs and cinematic scenes are inspired by the Uncharted series. Intihar confirmed that the game will be open world and feature acrobatic combat. The cinematic scripted moments and QTEs got inspiration from Uncharted so these should be occasional. Failing a QTE would get you a "fail slate" though.
All in all, it appears that an Uncharted-like Spider-Man game is in the works but in an open world format. Yet, it has its unique flair to it as you will have both Peter Parker and Spider-Man gameplay moments. All of this at the service of trying to make the most spectacular Spider-Man game ever made. These details excite me even further for this game. 2018, please come sooner.
