Spider-Man is a tough hero to develop because of his web swinging which is crucial for getting a good game. The developers at Insomniac Games appear to have given special attention to this and the result is that swinging around the city looks great for a Spider-Man game.
Twitter user SunhiLegend is known for his great animated GIFs and he has shared some from the Spider-Man footage published by GameInformer. It shows how much fun the traversal can be around the city in Spider-Man PS4.

I have played almost every Spider-Man game aside from The Amazing Spider-Man that was released on the PS4. I found them mostly enjoyable to some extent although the best ones were arguably from the PS1 and PS2. It amazes me to see how beautiful the new web swinging looks here. I might have not played the game so far but I can’t doubt the fluidity of the animation here. It feels like a dream game that has come true and fans of the superhero will finally have the definitive game to look forward to as it releases this September.
One aspect of the web swinging that is essential to the experience is that the web has to be attached to an object and you should be able to feel the weight of the pull and swing, and just looking at the footage so far, this appears to be case here. Of course, playing the actual game and then going through any upgrades might give a much better idea of the experience here but there is no doubt that if anyone sees you playing the game, they are going to be mesmerized by it.
Spider-Man PS4 will launch on September 7th exclusively for the PS4. The game is being developed by Insomniac Games and will be published by Sony Interactive Entertainment.
