Gamescom happened couple of days back and Marvel’s Spider-Man was available there for hands-on experience. Recently, a rumor has surfaced on internet that suggests Insomniac has silently and slightly downgraded upcoming Marvel’s Spider-Man. The rumors came mostly from players who got hands-on experience of game and played a mission that was showcased back in 2017.
It’s just a change in the puddle size, there’s no downgrade at all

The rumor focuses on a mission when Spider-Man swings towards a construction building and finds four henchmen and a hostage on ground. The ground seems to have a lot of puddle and water reflection in 2017 trailer. While, the recent Gamescom hands-on experience seems to have a reduced puddle count and dim reflection. Check out the image below and spot the difference.
Insomniac’s Community manager denied the rumor and further said
I told you the puddle was moved. That isn’t the issue. Shadows move to when you change the lighting. As does what detail appears. And compression does crush fine detail. The suit texture appears no problem on the TV, but is lost by video compression
Marvel’s Spider-Man is set to release on September 7 only on Sony PlayStation 4 console. Insomniac Games recently gave detail information on its DLC plans. ”The City That Never Sleeps” DLC is scheduled for post-launch after a month on October 23, 2018.
