Marvel’s Spider-Man 2’s massive open world map expands way beyond the limits of Manhattan.
During the most recent PlayStation Showcase event, we were finally treated to the first gameplay for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 from Insomniac Games, and it’s fair to say, that it blew fans away.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 not only looked visually stunning, but it was also performing at a super-slick framerate. In it, we were also introduced to Insomniac’s version of Kraven the Hunter as well Dr.Curt Conors mutant Lizard form.
Peter Parker also had something new up his sleeve, none other than his Symbiote skin granting him new powers, strength and abilities. However, as fans of Spidey will know, harnessesing the Symbiote comes at a great cost and it seems that Miles Morales is growing concerned with the welfare of his friend.
Of couse, no one wields the Symbiote quite liked Spider-Man arch-nemesis Venom played by horror legend Tony Todd. But Venon’s gameplay reveal is being saved for another day.
The original game released in 2018 is set in Manhatten, New York and while we will be returning to Manhatten once more in the sequel, we’re going to get so much more. No doubt, this is a direct benefit of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 ditching PS4 and launching on PS5 only.
