When is the Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 release date? Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is one of the most anticipated games on PS5 in 2023. But, what do we know about the game as of right now? What platforms is it coming to? What villains can we expect? Well, this article will have all the latest information on the game.
The sequel to 2018’s hit game and the spinoff is likely to end up making it into the best PS5 games list by the time it releases. And, with experience with the franchise and a wider cast of Spider-Man 2 villains to choose from you should expect a much more ambitious game than we have seen from Insomniac so far.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 release date window
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2’s release date is set for Fall 2023, as confirmed by PlayStation and Insomniac during the PlayStation Showcase 2023. The game will release on PS5 only.
In October 2022, Insomniac reiterated that the game is still on track for 2023 for PS5, despite not having revealed anything about the game in over a year. So, it is great to see it hit that date.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 story
The first cinematic footage of this game was at Sony’s PlayStation Showcase in September 202. It gave us a first look at both Miles Morales and Peter Parker, alongside a first look at Venom in Insomniac Games’ universe.
After watching, you may be sitting wondering who’s narrating this thrilling encounter. Additionally, in the PlayStation Showcase 2023 trailer, we also saw Kraven The Hunter, which we thought was indeed teased in this initial trailer.
Ahead of the release Spider-Man 2 prequel comic has also been launched and will follow the events of Peter Parker, Miles Morales and MJ Watson in between the last game and the upcoming Spider-Man 2. They will take down a new threat together before seeing what awaits them with Venom and the other Spider-Man 2 villains in the sequel later this year.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 gameplay
The Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 gameplay showed off a brand new wingsuit for Miles and a Venom-infused suit for Peter, confirming that you will switch between them during the story. We got to see some of Kraven’s goons, the ability to deploy rope lines to use, as well as a number of Symbiote-infused powers for Peter.
The trailer also showed off a stunning setpiece with The Lizard as we jumped between jet skis, boats, and swung over the water. The ability to perform finishers on the vehicle and to use the vehicles on the water is also a new addition, with it not being used much in the first game.
Well, that’s everything we know about when Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 release date is due and how long we have to wait to see Peter and Miles back fighting crime. It’s going to be one hell of a ride, whenever we get to go on it, and hopefully, we’ll find out more soon.
