Last year's gameplay trailer was one of the highlights of the show.

Ghost of Tsushima, at least, was the beneficiary of a lengthy gameplay trailer, showing a gorgeous game-world and bloody samurai-style combat.

E3 2018: See all the best from Sony's showcase

When the weird (but entertaining) PlayStation media briefing ended the night before the opening of the Electronic Entertainment Expo trade show in Los Angeles, Sony Interactive Entertainment ushered us out into a Spider-Man-themed after party. The fighting mechanics look to be ripped directly from Batman: Arkham Knight, complete with the "Fear" mechanic appearing as Spider-Man's "Spider Sense" moments.

Spider-Man comes to PS4 on September 7. The Sinister Six, to be exact.

She said she was happy that it was eliciting such a reaction by people because "it's important not to normalise school shootings". The post, written on Wednesday, had been shared more than 8,000 times and retweeted nearly 20,000 times at the time of writing.

Mister Negative also makes an appearance late in the clip, but he implies that the villains are all working for someone who wants Spidey alive. Now a seasoned Super Hero, Peter Parker has been busy keeping crime off the streets as Spider-Man. We also had another glimpse from the new Spider-Man game, oh and we're getting Nioh 2. Peter Parker feels even more graceful. My one gripe with the combat is that it nearly felt too frenetic at times - there were moments where Spidey felt too slippery for my liking, and also instances when the game's camera seemed to have a mind of its own. Here we learn about a new villain - this was later confirmed in a PlayStation blogcast.
