Tired of seeing superhero origin stories retreaded again and again and again? Then the next Spider-man game might be for you. At its E3 press event today, PlayStation announced a new take on the series from Insomniac Games -- one that focuses on the exploits of a more experienced adult wall-crawler.

It's refreshing in more way than one -- for the better part of the last two decades, it's been hard to find a Spider-Man game without some sort of narrative tie to an ongoing film franchise. This game looks different: it seems to feature an older version of the hero with new, distinctive costume that sets it apart from the previous films, or the upcoming Spider-Man homecoming. Insomniac games says it's a "brand-new, authentic Spider-Man story" that focuses on an "experienced Peter Parker who is more masterful at fighting crime."
