Comicbook.com is reporting a growing upset among fans of the upcoming PS4 Spider-Man game over the possible decrease if quality observed from the 2017 trailer and the recently released 2018 trailer.
A major concern centers around one particular scene. In the 2017, there was greater detail while in the 2018 trailer, we see it being less sharp and puddles missing. Even then, the buildings around as well as the lighting looks far less realistic. This potential “graphics downgrade” had caused quite an uproar in social media.
So the puddle was moved and replaced by a pile of boxes cause of compression🧐— #OCT12th (@lPoLEs_) August 26, 2018

Insomniac Games has since addressed the matter by assuring fans that there is no downgrade and that there are plenty of puddles throughout the game.
We have seen other games notice the same initial backlash, but came out without a problem in the past. The game changes and evolves during development as the creators make changes to the way some scenes are down and update some cutscenes. But that doesn’t necessarily mean we will see a decrease in the overall quality of the game.
Regardless, this highly anticipated Spider-Man game is likely to one of the best games released this year and some have already claimed that it is all but confirmed a candidate for Best Game of the Year.
‘Spider-Man’ will be released on Play Station 4 on September 7, 2018.
