Insomniac provided a new look at Marvel's Spider-Man 2 during the PlayStation State of Play presentation this evening.
In the video, creative director Bryan Intihar provides a deep dive into the expanded New York featuring new locations, updated exploration, enlivened traversal, near-instant switching between heroes, villains, new abilities and gadgets, and brand-new Suit Styles.
In Spider-Man 2, the size of Marvel’s New York is nearly doubled as it has been expanded beyond the East River. You can expect to see iconic landmarks across Queens and Brooklyn, complete with story missions, side quests, and city activities. With the expansion comes faster traversal options, such as the Web Wings, which can be combined with traditional web-swinging to move even faster.
You will also be able to switch between Peter Parker and Miles Morales in the open world, and each will have their own separate side stories to uncover throughout the city.
New enemies are also on the prowl and it's not just Kraven the Hunter and Venom: there are additional baddies causing trouble in the city and straining our heroes.
One of the cool things about the game, is that you'll be able to look fly while fighting enemies and swinging across the city.
The game features 65 suits, some of which are new original designs while others are fan favorites from films and comics. There's also Suit Styles, a new feature that unlocks alternate color shaders for some suits and provides over 200 ways for you to outfit your Spider-Man.
The Digital Deluxe Edition, announced in May, will feature additional Photo Mode items, two Skill Points, and 10 exclusive Spidey suits. The suits were created by artists across comics, games, and films. You can get a look at those in the gallery below.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 releases on October 20 exclusively for PlayStation 5. If you pre-order your copy through the PlayStation Store, you'll receive early unlocks to two new suits, the Web Grabber gadget, and three Skill Points.
