Jeff says that being a huge fan of Marvel, this is really personal to him.

“But despite my enjoyment of Captain America, Iron Man Black Widow, and the other Avengers, there was always one character I saw myself reflected in, and that was Peter Parker: The Sensational Spider-Man.”

Spiderman’s ability to adapt to any given surroundings is something Jeff wants to incorporate in the game.

And we could not agree more. Spiderman’s charm heavily lies in the fact that he is just a friend who wants to keep the neighborhood safe but the parameters of how big a world he can save ropes in his evolution to become an Avenger. Because with great power comes great responsibility, right?

Now, this naturally brings us to the question of the combat system for him. According to Jeff, the Lead Combat Designer, Vince Napoli is working hard to make his moves and fighting style “as great on the sticks as he is on the page.”

Devs are incorporating Spiderman’s acrobatic abilities to make the transition from movement to combat really seamless in the game. In addition to this, there will be a variety of web configurations and gadgets to enhance the experience of swinging around. The skill upgrade system will allow you to equip and upgrade the iconic skills and abilities. In terms of the suit, they are still in the process of conceptualizing it. But Jeff says that players can expect to see the influence of the vintage Spiderman look created by Steve Ditko mainly.

The event will comprise of various challenges for the character that will put his abilities to test. Well, looks like we just got more impatient for 2021!
