Insomniac’s Spider-Man, first shown at last year’s E3 (and which despite the timing has nothing to do with the new movie), looked promising today with a demonstration of high-flying gameplay.

This looks cool. Like Insomniac may have figured out what was so great about Spider-Man 2's web-slinging, but also found a way to work some stealth and 1v1 combat in there as well.

Here’s the video Sony showed at E3, which is mostly open gameplay, with a few scripted/curated sections worked in. The game will be out on PS4 in 2018.

Stick around after the end title in the clip for a short extra sequence showing that Miles Morales, who also is Spider-Man in the comics, will be in the game.

I went from so stoked to a little worried.

The first trailer, they swore up and down “you can do this crazy jumping around and over things, all in game.”

In this trailer, it felt very Uncharted - that is, you hold up to watch Spiderman do all this crazy leaping and jumping.

I could be wrong - I hope I am. I think Insomniac is one of the last few AAA devs who make good playing games, not just things where spectacle happens as you hold a direction because devs are too scared that you’re too stupid to be trusted with a controller.

But...now I’ll just wait to hear what it’s like to actually play it.
