Insomniac Games’ Marvel’s Spider-Man is creating a fair bit of buzz in the UK after a huge mural has been spotted in a certain city.
Graffiti artists Jim Vision and GENT 48 have produced a stunning large-scale piece of art dedicated to the recently released title in the city of Birmingham.
According to PlayStation UK’s Twitter account, it said that the Spider-Man art is located in a car park near the Custard Factory on Gibb Street.
I Am Birmingham reports that the mural has been produced for the High Vis Festival, which is the first street culture festival that was held at the Custard Factory on Saturday, September 8.
The studio first announced its latest title back at Sony’s E3 press conference in 2016.
Before it launched exclusively on PlayStation 4 last week, the open-world title was proving to be quite popular and Amazon had sold out physical copies in the U.S.
Since its release, however, a developer has explained why “Representation is so important” in Spider-Man, following on from a popular screenshot that went viral on Twitter.
Insomniac revealed The City That Never Sleeps last month, which is the DLC planned for the title. The Heist will be the first piece of content arriving in October, with the developer dropping a teaser trailer last week.
Hardcore Gamer awarded Spider-Man a near-perfect score in our review.
“Insomniac Games has created the single greatest Spider-Man game and one of the best based on a comic book,” reviewer Adam Beck said.
“It has a beautifully rendered world, an addicting combat system and a compelling story that, while won’t win any awards, provides cinematic and highly absurd scenarios.
“Swinging across Marvel’s version of Manhattan not only looks good thanks to the beautiful lighting and attention to detail, but it has never felt so good either, being a relaxing and peaceful experience.”
