PS4 E3 2017: Spider-Man VR Tease
May 31, 2017

Although the biggest Uncharted news this week came with the announcement of Spider-Man: Homecoming actor Tom Holland being named as the lead in a potential Hollywood movie, we're here to talk about games, and the upcoming release of .

 

The game is released on August 22nd later this year exclusively on PlayStation 4, but to say that the game hasn't raised a number of questions since it was first revealed at PSX last December would be an understatement.

 

However, developer Naughty Dog has cleared up a few details ahead of what we assume will be a big E3 2017 gameplay reveal.

 

While originally billed as DLC for Uncharted 4, the game was announced as being a standalone release a few months back.

 

And now Naughty Dog has posted an in-depth FAQ on its blog, not only discussing how to buy the game but more importantly what features players can expect with this new chapter in the Uncharted series.

 

For starters, The Lost Legacy will be free to download for anyone who owns the Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Digital Deluxe Edition, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Triple Pack or Explorer’s Pack.

 

In addition, the game will come with its own trophy list, complete with its own Platinum trophy but bizarrely players won’t be able to play Lost Legacy via the Uncharted 4 main menu.

 

Finally, Naughty Dog also confirmed that the game will include the same photo mode from Uncharted 4 as well as 4K/HDR on PlayStation 4 Pro.

Speaking of Spider-Man: Homecoming, another big PS4 game due to showcase some more gameplay at E3 2017 is Insomniac's upcoming  game, first showcased at E3 last year.

 

But ahead of E3 2017, Marvel Entertainment's Jay Ong - senior vice president of games and innovation at Marvel - spoke to Gamespot about the upcoming PS4 game.

 

Interestingly, Ong revealed that game’s suit is wholly original with no ties to any past or present costumes from films, comic books or TV shows.

 

“Spider-Man's costume in the game, for instance, is original, it's neither the theatrical costume nor is it from the comic books. The white spider design is totally original."

 

More interestingly, Ong has also hinted at the inclusion of VR into future Marvel games, saying:

 

“We did a deep dive in looking at the space towards the end of last year, and it offers some pretty incredible opportunities, in terms of delivering really cool experiences ... we can't say anything yet, but believe me, we're not shying away from it.”

 

However, Ong didn't clarify if it was a feature that could come to Spider-Man, which would no doubt be very cool as players swing between buildings across New York City.

 

Last but by no means least, Ong also expressed his confidence in the game, despite showing relatively little from it so far, suggesting that it’ll be “one of the best games” on the PlayStation 4 when it's released at some stage later this year.
