New York is under attack by Martin Li and his gang, as Osborn has declared that criminals and vigilantes will not be tolerated due to the increasing collateral damage to the city.

The mayor hires Silver Sable and her Wild Pack team to hunt down and kill the web-slinger. Peter Parker seeks help from both Mary Jane Watson and Miles Morales as he cannot stop Martin Lin if the whole city is hunting him. The trailer also sees Peter wearing his classic Spidey suit as he takes down Wilson Fisk.

Peter will also encounter old enemies such as Vulture, Scorpion, Electro, Rhino, and Shocker. The game will feature a massive open-world as Spidey swings around the city looking for bad guys. Players will use both hand-to-hand combat and web-based gadgets to fight criminals.

The game will also have easter eggs referencing other Marvel superheroes, but game director Bryan Intihar confirmed that there will be no appearances from Doctor Strange, Daredevil, or the Avengers.

New Spidey suit and Tombstone

According to Game Rant, the third pre-order costume for the "Spider-Man" game is called the Velocity Suit. The suit allows Peter to move faster when he web-swings around the city and some of its parts glow.

It will be available in the game alongside the Spider-Punk and Iron Spider costumes. Insomniac teased that other costume from the comics and movies will be featured in the game, so fans will be expecting the Noir, Black symbiote, suit, Future Foundation, and more.
