Spider-Man PS4 suit is inspired by Homecoming
The Spider-Man PS4 game, which is set to be revealed at E3 on June 13, will feature elements not just related to Spiderman: Homecoming, but also to the past three iterations of the webslinger.
The default suit worn by Spider-Man features a never-before-seen white spider outline, which combines the looks from the original Spider-Man trilogy and the following Amazing Spider-Man films. It also includes the mechanical eyes from the current generation played by Tom Holland.
Marvel Entertainment's Jay Ong spoke to Gamespot about the game’s suit choice, saying: “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."
Despite its ties to the cinematic Universe, the game will feature an entirely new story and open world, but promises to remain faithful to the Spider-Man mythos.

Marvel Games is now growing into its own entity, and Ong has stated that they “used to be a support unit; now we're big, not as big as theatrical or TV, but we're growing”.
Their main partner in the venture, Insomniac games, will be responsible for its core development and game mechanics. Insomniac’s last successful exclusive on the Xbox One; Sunset Overdrive, showcased an impressive open world and traversal mechanics that would be well suited to a Spider-Man game.
Marvel and Insomniac are working very closely on the game’s development, collaborating on every aspect from the storyline to the art style, and will deliver a finished product separate to the film franchise.
James Ong has also hinted at the inclusion of VR in future games.

He said: “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.”
Combining PlayStation VR with a future Spider-Man game would prove to be a real possibility, since games like HTC Vive’s ‘Wildlands’ already has players swinging through trees in virtual reality.
If Marvel is strongly considering the use of this technology, it might not be long before we see a first-person Spider-Man game in virtual reality.
