During E3, we saw a demonstration of the PS4’s upcoming Spiderman title developed by Insomniac Games, where we saw Spiderman web-slinging around and doing what a spider can. The game’s setting, New York City, is going to be a huge sandbox playground for you to fight crime and swing across buildings. So, just how big is Spiderman‘s world?

According to a Tweet from Insomniac Games, the game’s take on NYC will be humongous. While they couldn’t offer a comparison to games by other developers such as Witcher 3, they were able to compare the title to their own title, the Xbox One-exclusive Sunset Overdrive.

Sunset Overdrive‘s setting, Sunset City, is the biggest video game world Insomniac has created to date. Or at least, until now. Insomniac’s Tweet reports that Spiderman‘s NYC will be “several times larger” than Sunrise City. It sounds like there’s a lot of places to explore and a lot of crime to fight, from the sounds of it– and we’re all about that.

Currently, the game is in development as a PS4 exclusive. We’re not positive when it’ll release, but it seems like it’s slated for a 2018 release date.
