Bill Rosemann Teases Spider-Man PS4 Costume & Video Game

Our main man at Marvel, Bill Rosemann, chats with Marvel.com about the recently announced new Spider-Man PS4 video game.

Bill Rosemann edited the popular Marvel Cosmic titles by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning that inspired the Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

Now Bill is the Creative Director for Marvel Games and offers the new Spider-Man PS4 video game costume will be further explained.

It’s Peter Parker, but he has a different costume. We like to think that it’s inspired by the classic design. But yet, it’s clearly different. And we know people have questions, they want to know why it’s changed.

In due time, my friend! One day, when the time is right, we will go into great depth about why certain decisions were made. But one thing I can say now is that extensive thought was applied from the top of his mask to the bottom of his feet. We know how much people love Spider-Man and his costume. In my opinion, it’s the best-designed super hero costume of all-time. If you’re going to alter it, you have to understand what the original design achieved and be very thoughtful and have a reason for everything. Another thing I want to say is that Insomniac and Marvel are known as great storytellers, and there is story behind everything in the game, and as the months go on, we will dig into all of that. 

Rosemann also says the Spider-Man PS4 video game is not tied to the movies or Spider-Man: Homecoming, but will be a standalone game enabling it lots of freedom.

One of the questions we’ve been asked right away was, “Is this game set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe or an adaption of a movie?” And our answer has consistently been – and this has gone back for the last two years, since Jay Ong came to Marvel Games with a mandate to great games for our great fans – is that we are going to create unique, standalone games that give our partners the freedom and time to deliver the game they want.

Marvel Games is giving Insomniac the freedom to tell their Spider-Man story. We’re here to collaborate with them and embrace their vision and help them execute that to the fullest. And by giving them that freedom, they’ll deliver something new and unexpected so you, as the player, won’t know what is going to happen next. You’re not going to think, “Well, this is set between this movie and that movie, so I know how things are going to end.” In this game, you have no idea what is going to happen next and where it’s going. 

Rosemann also offers this Spider-Man is not a teenager and has mastered his powers.

Okay, so by his voice and body shape, you can tell he’s not a teenager. He’s a little more experienced and again, we’ll talk about this more, maybe it’s these experiences that have led to why his suit is the way it is. We all learn and grow from our experiences and this Spider-Man has been fighting crime for a bit and he’s mastered his abilities, which you’ll experience from the very first scene. The trailer footage — which is gameplay captured on a PS4 — was specifically chosen to show the wish fulfillment of being Spider-Man, web-slinging, wall-crawling and parkouring through New York City like it’s your playground. The evolution of his traversal skills, and bringing that into combat is also a unique new element to the game. You see in the combat scenes the thinking and fun that Spider-Man puts into fighting the bad guys. You see that scene where he grabs the box and spins around and BAM! nails someone with it. And I love that scene where he comes flying in and BOOM! lands on the guy. The combat you’ll experience here is everything you want Spider-Man combat to be, and the trailer does a great job of showcasing that.

Marvel and Sony have yet to announce a release date and the official title for the Spider-Man PS4 video game.

It’s also learned the Spider-Man PS4 video game is only the first in a line of “epic” Marvel console games in development.

Resident Evil 7 Trailer, Screenshots & Info

FEAR COMES HOME AS CAPCOM ANNOUNCES RESIDENT EVIL® 7 biohazard

Resident Evil® Ushers in a New Era of Innovative, Immersive and Visceral Horror

 

LOS ANGELES — June 13, 2016 — At the Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) E3 press conference today, Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, announced Resident Evil 7 biohazard, the next major entry in the renowned Resident Evil series. Resident Evil 7 sets a new course for the Resident Evil series as it leverages its roots and opens the door to a truly terrifying horror experience. A dramatic new shift for the series to first person view in a photorealistic style powered by Capcom’s new RE Engine, Resident Evil 7 delivers an unprecedented level of immersion that brings the thrilling horror up close and personal. Resident Evil 7 is scheduled for release on PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system (the full gameplay experience will also be available via the included PlayStation VR Mode), Xbox One and Windows PC (Steam and Windows 10 Store) across North America and Europe on January 24, 2017.

Set in modern day rural America and taking place after the dramatic events of Resident Evil 6, players experience the terror directly from the first person perspective. The Resident Evil 7 Teaser: Beginning Hour demo, also announced today, portrays events leading up to the main game and ties directly into the impactful PlayStation VR “KITCHEN” tech demo first shown at E3 2015. In the new teaser demo, the player awakens inside a dilapidated cottage on an ominous plantation mansion. Can they make it out alive?

Resident Evil 7 embodies the series’ signature gameplay elements of exploration and tense atmosphere that first coined “survival horror” some twenty years ago; meanwhile, a complete refresh of gameplay systems simultaneously propels the survival horror experience to the next level. Terrifying fans at events across the globe last year, the PlayStation VR “KITCHEN” tech demo was developed utilizing the RE Engine’s VR oriented tools, and is the foundation on which the talented Resident Evil team has crafted the immersive horror experience in Resident Evil 7. Powered by the RE Engine in tandem with industry leading audio and visual technologies, Resident Evil 7 is poised to deliver a disturbingly realistic experience that will define the next era in horror entertainment.

PlayStation Plus subscribers can now download the standalone teaser demo for PlayStation 4 called Resident Evil 7 Teaser: Beginning Hour and will have first access before it is available on other platforms at a later date. Players can get a taste of what they can expect from Resident Evil 7 with a sampling of the nail-biting exploration and terrifying atmosphere the game will offer when it releases early next year. Attendees of E3 will be able to try out a demo on either PlayStation 4 or PlayStation VR at the Capcom booth in South Hall #2023 or try the PlayStation VR demo at the Sony booth in West Hall #4522 and #4144.

Ed Boon Teases Mortal Kombat 11 & Injustice: Gods Among Us 2

The creator of Mortal Kombat has taken to Twitter to offer a tease for Mortal Komat 11 and Injustice: Gods Among Us 2.

Ed Boon updated his Twitter account with a Roman numeral “II” logo and responded to a fan question of, “Why is this for ? MK 11 OR INJUSTICE 2?” with “That is a DAMN good question….”

We’re guessing it’s for both.

Rumor of the Injustice: Gods Among Us video game sequel hit a few days ago with mention it may be announced at or around the upcoming E3.

It’s also probably safe to say that more than likely, another Mortal Kombat game is in development, with Mortal Kombat X having been so well received.

The E3 takes place June 14-16, so look for announcements soon.

Godzilla “Ultimate Mayhem” E3 Trailer

Check out the “Ultimate Mayhem” trailer above for the Godzilla video game released at E3.

The game will be available July 14th for PS4 and PS3.

Info:

In 1954, the waters off the coast of Japan churned to life as a massive, lumbering monster emerged from the deep. Godzilla came ashore and wreaked havoc on the cities and was dubbed the King of the Monsters. During this time, scientists studied the beast and discovered they could harness his energy — called G-Energy. This seemingly endless source of power was channeled to make the lives of mankind better. However, 60 years later, as the G-Energy has been used to improve civilization, it is causing the beast to awaken. Godzilla is in search of more G-Energy, and as a consequence, he’s destroying at will. What will happen if Godzilla consumes all of the G-Energy? Does mankind stand a chance against the King of the Monsters?

Unleash complete and utter destruction as the most feared monster — Godzilla. Rise from your slumber to smash and bash your way through various stages to take out the Energy Generator. Maximize your G-Energy in each stage by annihilating buildings and structures. Beware as with each edifice you eliminate the Hazard Level rises, and can bring out other legendary monsters to battle. Collect G-Energy in each stage to enhance your Godzilla — grow him from 50 to 100 meters tall, improve his defensive and offensive skills, power-up his heat ray and learn new abilities. Build the scene of your dreams to let the monster loose on with Diorama mode, or put your skills to the test in a time trial of destruction with King of Monsters mode. Enjoy a unique look at the chaos with the movie-style camera angle system, which switches the camera view to preset locations around the map. Are you ready to lay waste to cities in ways you’ve only imagined?

Features:

Become the King of the Monsters, Godzilla, when you awake after 60 years of dormancy

Search for G-Energy — a seemingly endless source of power that channels the beast, while simultaneously helping make people’s lives better

Use your massive size and unbelievable power to smash and bash through more than 20 stages to take out the Energy Generator in Mission mode

Unleash powerful destruction by obliterating as many buildings as possible to maximize your G-Energy, but beware — the more structures you wipe out, the higher the Hazard Level rises — which can cause other iconic monsters to battle

Play as the classic Godzilla or the 2014 Hollywood version, and battle against a monstrous cast of legendary beasts

Choose to view the action with the special movie-style camera angle system that switches the camera to preset locations on the map and allows you to jump to the camera points and control Godzilla just like in the movies

Grow Godzilla from 50 to 100 meters tall by collecting G-Energy in each stage to power-up the monster, and learn new skills, power-up his heat ray and increase his defensive and offensive skills as well

Construct the Godzilla scene that you’ve always imagined in Diorama mode

Put your skills to the test in a time trial of chaos in King of Monsters mode
