Players will play as Mary Jane during ‘key moments’ in PS4 exclusive Spider-Man

We will play as Peter too.

Sony's presentation during Paris Games Week gave us a brand new look at Insomniac Games' upcoming Spider-Man game. In the new trailer, we got a look at Mary Jane, Aunt May, Mr. Negative, and, of course, Peter Parker.

This was one of the first looks at Mary Jane and a follow-up post on the Spider-Man presentation confirmed one more thing for Parker's "close" friend.

According to Bryan Intihar, the Creative Director at Insomniac Games, Mary Jane Watson will play a "significant role" in the game. 

"MJ is a smart, savvy reporter with The Daily Bugle and she’s investigating the suspicious activity happening throughout the city. She won’t be just a bystander either, so yes, players will even play as MJ for key moments."

In addition to that, we won't only be playing as Peter Parker in Spider-Man mode, we will be taking control of him when he's Peter too. 

Spider-Man is heading to PlayStation 4 in 2018
