Marvel's Spider-Man 2 | Overworld Overview Trailer - Moonface - Sep 9th, 2021

The next instalment in Insomniac Games' Spider-Man series has officially been announced, and judging by the trailer it looks like both Peter Parker and Miles Morales will be facing off against Venom!

Marvel's Spider-Man 2 is currently scheduled for a 2023 release.

I'm really excited for this. I loved the first Spider-Man game but have yet to play Miles Morales, so at least I can get a fix of Spider-Man goodness while waiting for this to come out. Grin

Marvel's Spider-Man 2 | Gameplay Reveal
We got our first look at gameplay footage from Marvel's Spider-Man 2 to close out today's PlayStation Showcase, showcasing new powers and the ability to play as both Peter Parker and Miles Morales:

As seen in the opening moments of the trailer, we're introduced to the games main villain who is known as Kraven the Hunter. His search for an equal has led him to New York, filled with a rogue’s gallery of villains and the Spider-Men, Peter Parker and Miles Morales. The gameplay kicks off with Kraven’s Hunters, a new enemy faction, searching for Dr. Curt Connors, a.k.a. The Lizard, at his home across the East River in Queens, one of the all-new playable and explorable boroughs being introduced in this game.

Their search doesn't go too well though, as instead of finding Connor they're instead greeted by Peter Parker, and it's here we witness the introduction of the Black Suit, also known as the Symbiote. After demonstrating some of the new powers the Symbiote grants to Parker, he realizes he won't manage to reach Connor's actual location in time to stop Kraven. It's here that we see the perspective switch to Miles Morales over in Harlem, and from there things progressively kick into higher gears until culminating in a chase sequence along the East River, showcasing more of the new abilities available to both Spider-Men in this title.

Marvel's Spider-Man 2 will release in Fall 2023.

I don't have a ps5 but that looks amazing. like seriously loved every bit of that gameplay trailer. Venom mechanics were great too and they weren't shy about showing how it affects him. Seemless transition from one character to another was seriously impressive too. That means loading a whole new part of the city instantly. This is why Sony kills it with the games they make.

I've been spending all day thinking how they could better advertise this game and honestly couldn't come up with anything. I enjoyed watching Moony play the first iteration, but I gotta say, this trailer... well, I guess let's just say if you aren't a MCU/Marvel Comic fan, this was definitely a worse for wear watch. It was extremely long winded in its presentation of taking you from quicktime event to quicktime event, to the very particularly set-piecey action sequences that would only befit a comic book. But like, how else are they going to sell a sequel to the first game? We know the mechanics, we know the characters... justifying a sequel required this sort of popcorn-flick style of action to get someone invested.

RE: Marvel's Spider-Man 2 | Gameplay Reveal - Moonface - Jun 6th, 2023

Yeah, somehow my excitement for this game wasn't really heightened by the gameplay footage. I think it's because I don't know the villain and their motivation of just looking for new prey is incredibly dull as a premise, and the gameplay while having new things is just kinda what I'd expect anyway so there wasn't really much of a "woah" moment for me. The jump through the suspended subway car during the river chase was also incredibly jank too with how Spider-Man just snaps to it and I feel most players will just ignore going through it given how out of the way it is.

Character switching seems neat but I hope it doesn't mean there's just an even bigger amount of open world clutter to deal with and that character exclusive stuff is kept mainly to story missions.

RE: Marvel's Spider-Man 2 | Release Date and Special Editions Announced - Moonface - Jul 20th, 2023

Entertainment Weekly just put out an article giving a little preview of Insomniac's take on Venom for this game, ahead of the San Diego Comic Con panel that'll be taking place tomorrow which will apparently go into further details and probably give us a trailer or something: https://ew.com/events/comic-con/marvels-spider-man-2-venom-tony-todd/

I haven't read the full article yet, but it does have this image at the top which I think is our first in-game look at Venom's design:

It looks pretty sick, even if I don't really know what Venom usually looks like from memory to make a comparison. I wonder what stuff we'll get tomorrow. Grin

Marvel's Spider-Man 2 | Story Trailer
Here's a story trailer that was released recently. Check it out and give us your thoughts!

RE: Spider-Man (Series) - Moonface - Jul 21st, 2023

@WR91: I moved your post from the other Spider-Man thread into this one since this thread is specifically for the game you were posting about. Wink

Just watched the trailer, and it may have been what I needed to start anticipating this game more. I got rather burned out on Marvel because of the amount of movies and shows coming out so frequently after Endgame which was making it hard for me to be as excited for this game as I would have been otherwise. I was already expecting Harry to end up with the Symbiote at some point in the game, but this trailer makes it very clear that's definitely happening. I'm just curious what's going to happen to any of the gameplay mechanics that are available to Peter when he has possession of the Symbiote, since once he loses it it won't make sense for him to still perform any of those abilities but it would suck to only have them for a limited time. I don't think Harry will have it first and then lose it to Peter who keeps it for the rest of the game, and I doubt Peter would lose it and then take it back considering it isn't a good thing to be in possession of, so I'm really curious how the gameplay is going to pan out for those abilities across the entire length of the game.

As well as the story trailer, there's also a PS5 bundle that has both the console and the controller themed around this game, which can be seen here on the PS Blog: https://blog.playstation.com/2023/07/20/first-look-ps5-console-marvels-spider-man-2-limited-edition-bundle/
For me the best news in that blog post is that the console covers are going to be sold standalone, so anyone who already owns a PS5 like myself won't have to miss out on the covers if they want them. Not sure if I'd get them since while I think they look sick, I have my PS5 laying horizontally on a shelf so not much of the design would be visible. But I suppose I could get them and still use them, plus I'm sure there'll come a day where I have my PS5 in a location that lets more of it be seen so I can see the covers fully if I have them on it then. Unsure if I'd get the DualSense either yet, but if I get the covers I'll definitely want the controller too so I can have it match the console when the covers are in use on it.
If I had one criticism about the console covers, it's that I really don't think the Spider-Man symbol needed to be on both covers. I'd rather the bottom cover either just be plain black or have a different symbol so that it looks different to the top cover.

RE: Marvel's Spider-Man 2 | Story Trailer + Themed Console/Controller - ShiraNoMai - Aug 7th, 2023

I forgot they had completely redone Peter's facial model for the game after the remaster cuz people thought it didn't match Yuri Lowenthal's voice. Something to get used to, I suppose.

I'm also unsure what they'll do between the Symbiote's corrosion thing. It definitely seems like that's the central conflict of the game so they'll probably handle it accordingly to help pace the game out. It'll be interesting seeing Peter's "emo phase" play out in this, cuz I imagine Yuri is going to be pulling out his Sasuke card to get the angst and serious attitude out. LOL
