Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is coming out this October, and it’s one of the most exciting new games for the PS5 this year. In this game, you can explore a big city and go on adventures as two main characters, Peter Parker and Miles Morales.
They both have the power to swing from buildings using their webs. This time, they’re working together to stop a bad guy named Kraven the Hunter in New York City. More Marvel games are coming soon, but from what we’ve seen, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 could become one of the best games ever.
A new version of the game Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is coming out, just for the PlayStation 5. It has new parts of New York City to explore, new things your character can do, and special suits you can collect. But a suit is causing problems between the two Spider-Men in the game’s story.
We want to share all the details we know about the game, like how the fighting works, when you can pre-order it, and when you can download it before it’s released. Just keep reading to find out more!
Spider-Man 2 PS5 Release Date
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will come out on October 20, 2023. Insomniac announced this during an event called Summer Game Fest. Bryan Intihar (Creative Director) said they are sure it won’t be delayed because it’s almost finished.
Spider-Man 2 Pre-Load Date
The option to download Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 early will be ready on October 13, 2023, at different times, depending on where you live. You can use this early download feature if you bought the game before its release date.
However, this doesn’t mean you can start playing before the game’s release date on October 20. Think of it as a way to get ready and save time. The new game has a much larger map than the previous one, so the download will be quite big and take up a lot of space on your device.
Is Spider-Man 2 Coming to PS4?
Unfortunately, the new game Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will only be available on the PS5 and not the PS4. Insomniac announced this in a post on the PlayStation Blog when they revealed the game. They are doing this to make the most of the advanced technology in the PS5.
Unlike the previous two games in the Marvel’s Spider-Man series, which could be played on the PS4 and PS5, this new game will only work on the PS5. So, if you like playing games as Spider-Man, you might want to consider getting a PS5 soon.
Spider-Man 2 Gameplay
Luckily, we have a good amount of gameplay for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 to look at. The big new thing is that Peter Parker’s Spider-Man can wear a special symbiote suit. This suit lets him do cool moves and tricks and gives him new fighting moves.
One of these moves is a powerful slam that can knock down many enemies together. When moving around the city, we noticed that Miles and Peter now have wing suits. These suits help them go faster than before.
In the video, they use the wing suits to glide on air, and they can smoothly switch to swinging on their webs. You can change between playing as Miles and Peter in some parts of the game. We’re unsure if this happens in the story or if it’s up to the player.
From what we’ve seen, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is improving the gameplay from the last two games. The fighting is more aggressive, and the new suit is stronger. New abilities and gear will change how you fight and move. It’s also been said that how you play will affect Peter and what he can do, which is pretty cool.
Spider-Man 2 Trailers
At the San Diego Comic-Con in 2023, they revealed a new video about how Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will begin. It starts by reminding us about Miles and Peter, the main characters.
Then, it gives us a sneak peek of the danger of a bad guy named Kraven and his secret plan. We also see how the game makers imagine a character called Venom. Plus, they give us a preview of how the other characters react to Peter Parker’s connection with Venom.
At the Summer Games Fest 2023, they showed us a 10-minute trailer introducing a part of a new game. In the video, we saw some exciting action scenes and got a sneak peek of the main character, Peter’s cool new powers, which come from Venom.
In September 2021, a trailer was shown at an event for a game called Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. The trailer was about a minute and a half long but showed us quite a bit.
We saw Peter Parker and Miles Morales fighting bad guys in the trailer. This hints that we might be able to control both of these Spider-Man characters in the game.
Towards the end, we were surprised by the sudden appearance of the well-known bad guy from Spider-Man, Venom. He’s an alien creature who likes to be violent. It seems like he will be one of the main bad guys in the next part of the story.
We couldn’t see the actual game being played when the trailer was shown for the first time. But briefly, we saw a picture of Peter with his special robot arms. This hints that his special suit powers might return, which has been confirmed since then.
While watching the trailer, we also hear a scary voice talking. This suggests Peter and Miles must deal with another bad person in the new story.
Spider-Man 2 Limited Edition PS5 Console and Controller
In addition to the story trailer, they showed a special edition of the PS5 game console and a controller called DualSense at Comic Con. These have a cool look with black, red, and white colors. The design reminds us of the powerful and negative effects of the symbiote suit.
The bundle has a new PS5 game console, a DualSense controller, and a digital game voucher. You can also buy the controller alone. If you already have a PS5, you can get special covers for the console instead of buying a whole new one. This way, you don’t have to spend money on a new machine.
You can start ordering the Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 console bundle on July 28, 2023. You can buy it from the PlayStation store or certain shops.
