Spider-man for PS4 was one of the most anticipated games of 2018, the game was released on September 7th and many fans of the franchise were ecstatic about the game and how it played. In fact, it stopped so many players from playing their go to game every day to experience this hit. It wasn’t all positive though for players from other platforms as the game was released on PS4 it left gamers off other consoles forming a rebellion to get this game available on their own platform. Very unlikely for Sony to publish one of their best-selling games of the year on a different platform but that didn’t stop players from asking. Anyway, back to the point you would of thought with such a successful game release and player base that the games Easter Eggs would have been discovered. You’d be wrong in thinking that!
One of the Senior programmers at Insomniac Games, the developers of the game. He said that no one noticed at least one of the Easter eggs. In the Big Apple: a group of civilians disappear from the game on Saturdays. Why is this? It is actually linking to the Jewish tradition, Jewish citizens in the game are not in the game on Saturdays. For people who don’t know much about the tradition, Saturday is considered the day of rest known as Shabbat in Judaism it is referred to as Sabbath. During this time, many practising Jews take time off work, to stay at home for the day.
It is nice to notice that game developers take little details in like that, to show extra time and care and also interest in the game. To this day it wasn’t public knowledge of this Easter egg which has left a lot of avid fans wondering what else they have missed within the game. Now it’s time to grind spidey again!
