New details about the upcoming Spider-Man game have surfaced, which is due out for release on September 7 as a PlayStation 4 exclusive.
It was previously thought that the game would not have dynamic weather effects nor allow players to change the time of day. However, in an interview with GameInformer, director Bryan Intihar has confirmed that players can manually change these as they please.
There is only one catch to this: You must first finish the game before being allowed to roam in your preferred conditions.
This is what Intihar had to say:
“For us we thought that, well I mean the truth is, this is a very story heavy game and as you guys know a lot of great games use time of day whether to communicate a certain feel vibe to the situation where you are in the story so we want to make sure that we were communicating a certain feeling to the player while they were first making their way through the main story.
That being said when you do finish the game you can actually change time of day and weather yourself manually.”
Intihar also revealed other interesting information, including:
- A black suit is available, but don’t expect to encounter and fight Symbiotes
- Players will not be able to play outside of Manhattan, New York
- Spider-Man does not take any damage when falling from high places
- Players are allowed to change between several difficulty settings
Spider-Man appears to be a gift that keeps on giving. In fact, it was recently confirmed that players who preordered the game would also receive three new Spidey Suits. How awesome is that?
Titles like these will hopefully keep the console’s momentum going at full speed. Stay tuned as Spider-Man releases exclusively on PlayStation 4 this September 7.
