First Look at SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING VR Experience

The new Spider-Man game for the PlayStation 4 was easily one of our favorites from last week’s E3, but it’s not the only time you’ll get to step into the Wall-crawler’s boots. Starting next week, Sony is offering fans a new chance to become Spidey in the Spider-Man: Homecoming VR Experience.

To set the stage for the game, Tom Holland, the MCU’s new Spider-Man, appeared in a lengthy introductory video with footage from the film. Our actual glimpse of the gameplay was very brief, but it did show off the ability to put on Spider-Man’s costume and practice using his web shooters in addition to taking on the Vulture’s drone.

VR gaming is still very much in its infancy, but Spider-Man is clearly a character who seems perfectly suited for the format. For decades, we’ve had to vicariously experience the thrills of web-slinging, and knocking supervillains out while sharing quips and jokes. This seems like a concept that is ripe for expansion in the future.

We’re not sure how much gameplay the Spider-Man: Homecoming VR Experience really offers. But the good news is that it won’t cost you anything to find out. On Friday, June 30, Sony is dropping the title for free on PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. Even if you don’t have one of those VR platforms, there’s still a chance to check it out in select Cinemark theaters across the United States starting this weekend.
