Spider-Man Swings into SIDE

September 2018


The highly anticipated Marvel's Spider-Man is finally out and is receiving critical acclaim whilst garnering an impressive 87% rating on Metacritic based on 92 reviews. Developed by the talented team at Insomniac Games, Spider-Man is being touted as "...the best superhero blockbuster the PS4 has ever seen" and here at SIDE, we are beyond thrilled to have been involved.

Over the last few months the audio team at SIDE London have worked their magic in assisting with the dialogue editorial and mastering for the final game. Leading the team on this esteemed challenge, Anthony Hales (Technical Director, Audio & Translation) detailed the value SIDE can bring to such high-profile, triple-AAA games and the efforts that go into crafting amazing audio, "Here at SIDE, we pride ourselves on the knowledge and expertise we can offer our clients. With the extensive toolsets we've developed covering all areas of asset management, editorial, mastering and QA, we've successfully delivered hundreds of thousands of files, across multiple languages. Utilising our collective experience to help bring Marvel's Spider-Man to life has been nothing short of an amazing experience."

Once again, the entire team at SIDE are incredibly proud and honoured to have contributed to such a highly regarded property, especially as, once again, we've been part of something that could be a candidate for the prestigious 'Game of the Year' award.

Did we mention that SIDE has also been involved with another potential 'Game of the Year' for 2018...no? You can read more here: God of War (2018)
