When is the Spider-Man 2 PS5 pre-load available? Waiting for a game you’ve pre-ordered can feel like you’re sitting and watching the clock tick. It’s pretty boring, actually. But fortunately, we know the Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 PS5 pre-load date and time, meaning you can at least find out when your download of the game will start.

The long wait for the Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 pre-load has been hard, especially after getting our hands on the Spider-Man 2 DualSense before release. Making matters even worse (or better), it’s also a stellar game, reviewing a rare 10/10 from us in our Spider-Man 2 review on PS5, easily placing it among the best PS5 games ahead of the Spider-Man 2 release date. So, do yourself a favor by finding out when you can pre-load the game to make the waiting a little easier.

Spider-Man 2 PS5 pre-load date and time

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 pre-load is now available on PS5 to all those who have pre-ordered the game, having opened on Friday, October 13, 2023, at 6 AM PT / 9 AM ET / 2 PM BST, one week before the full release of the game.

This is good news for those with slow internet speeds as you won’t have to sit idly waiting for the game to download after release when you could instead be playing it. Downloading the game early means you’ll be ready the minute the game releases, which is crucial given the Spider-Man 2 PS5 file size is over 90gb in total.

Even if you’ve generally got fast internet, those who love looking at the PlayStation homepage, eagerly waiting for the game to drop won’t have to wait around. While you’ll have to wait until the full release before you can actually begin playing the game, you’ll hopefully enjoy the Spider-Man music playing on your PS5 home for the time being.

Once the game does officially release though, you’ll be ready to swing in and start collecting all the Spider-Man 2 PS5 suits and experiencing the story right away.

Can you pre-load using a digital code from Spider-Man 2 PS5 bundle?

Unfortunately, you can’t pre-load the game with a digital voucher included with your Spider-Man 2 PS5 console pre-orders. The PlayStation Blog confirms that you can redeem the voucher for the standard edition of the game when it launches, meaning you’ll need to prepare to download it on October 20, 2023.

It’s annoying for those with slow internet speeds, as that means you may have to wait a whole day before you can start playing the latest superhero game. That also means that those purchasing the collector’s edition of Spider-Man 2 will also have to wait until launch to redeem their copy while those who have standard pre-orders can already pre-load the game.

That’s the Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 PS5 pre-load date and time for those of you who like torturing yourself by having your copy installed and waiting days to finally play it. Until then, you can find out the Spider-Man 2 characters you’ll be catching up with, or which Spider-Man 2 villains you’ll be looking to put back into the Raft.
