Spider-Man PS4 story
Insomniac Games, the team behind the Ratchet & Clank and Resistance series, are working on their first licensed game. Featuring the Marvel Comics superhero, the Spider-Man PS4 story will be brand-new and not based around any of the comic books or films.
What we do know so far is that Peter Parker is an intern, working at a laboratory in New York. The 23-year old has already been spinning his web around the city as Spider-Man for eight years, protecting the citizens.
Near the start of the game, Spidey defeats Wilson Fisk (The Kingpin) who is one of the most powerful crime lords in Marvel's history. Fisk controlled New York, but in his absence a new group of enemies called the Inner Demons are trying to take over.
Early on, Spider-Man protects The Kingpin's men when the Inner Demons attack and discovers that they are led by Mister Negative, who is his normal job works as a philanthropist called Martin Li. This should create an interesting dynamic, but Peter is friends with Martin outside of their super-hero status.
Insomniac has said that we'll largely be playing as Spider-Man throughout the game, though investigative journalist Mary-Jane will also be a playable character. Other confirmed characters include Aunt May, Normal Osbourne and Shocker. We also know that Miles Morales, who also takes the guise of Spider-Man will feature, though to what extent remains a mystery.
The battle is on!

Other Spider-Man PS4 news
As a PS4 exclusive game, we can expect Spider-Man to look amazing on PS4 Pro, and the developer has plans to ensure that's the case. Recently, PS4 architect Mark Cerney said Insomniac Games are “using a forward-looking technique called ‘temporal injection' that lets them efficiently support 4K displays. The display buffers they're using are 2160p, so it's full-on 4K, and they can then scale down those buffers to create very clean and high-quality graphics for 1080p HD TV owners.
