Everyone is looking forward to Marvel’s Spider-Man on the PlayStation 4 from Insomniac Games. It’s got web-slinging, flip-kicks, zipping between skyscrapers, and most importantly, it has the quips you’d expect from Peter Parker. The only problem is that 2018 is a long way off. The good news is that there’s a new Spider-Man game available right now, and it’s free! The bad news is that you need a VR system to play it.
Spider-Man: Homecoming – Virtual Reality Experience may sound like a dubious edutainment attraction at Disney’s EPCOT Center, but its actually a VR game. Well, it’s less a game and more a 5-minute target practice tutorial and advertisement for the movie Spider-Man: Homecoming, but it’s free and you do get to swing a couple of disembodied hands around. Zap balloons! Pick up rooftop garbage and sling it around! Clumsily grab your mask and jostle it onto your VR head. It’s just like being a superhero!
