Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Arrives Only on PS5 October 20, Collector’s & Digital Deluxe Editions Detailed
Insomniac Games is thrilled to announce that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will launch on Friday, October 20, 2023, only on PlayStation 5. After the amazing fan reception for Marvel’s Spider-Man in 2018 and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales in 2020, the team has worked tirelessly over the past few years to make this third instalment in the franchise the sequel you have been waiting for.
Built from the ground up for PlayStation 5 console, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will unlock the power of the console with better visuals, faster web swinging (and web wings!), 3D Audio, and near-instant character switching. The teams at Insomniac, PlayStation, and Marvel Games cannot wait for players to get their hands on this incredible single-player open-world experience.
In Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, players will get to experience Marvel’s New York as both Peter Parker and Miles Morales. As seen in the PlayStation Showcase last month – the main storyline of the game will have you take control of both Spider-Men at different points of the campaign. In the open world, players will be able to switch nearly instantly between them as you explore Manhattan, Queens, and Brooklyn. Both Spider-Men have stories and missions in the world exclusive to each of them.
As you can see from the box art, Peter and Miles are both key protagonists in our story. The iconic red background returns, but darkness surrounds as fan-favourite villains like Venom, Lizard, and Kraven threaten them and Marvel’s New York. Players will also notice that each character’s arm represents their new abilities: Peter with the symbiote, Miles with his evolved bioelectric Venom powers.
In addition to the launch date, there are several editions announced for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. Pre-orders will open on June 16th, 2023 at all participating retailers and PlayStation Store. Pre-Orders will go live at 10:00 AM local time on June 16, 2023.
