The relationship between PlayStation consoles and Marvel games is not a new thing. And this time, your friendly neighborhood web-slinger, Spider-Man, is all set to make a move. Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will launch on October 20, 2023, and the pre-orders for the game have already started.
The game is going to be exclusively available for PlayStation 5. Another major highlight is that all the early birds (people who will pre-order the game) will get Arachknight Suit for Peter Parker with three color variants and Shadow-Spider Suit for Miles Morales with three color variants.
Not only this, but also the players will be offered a Web Grabber gadget and three skill points. Moving forward in the story, we will discuss what we get to see in the game.
An Inspired Story
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 story is set up in New York City, specifically in Queens and East River. The story will start with Kraven, The Hunter, who is also the game’s main villain, heading to New York to kill new targets. Thus, the game further moves to the debut of Spiderman in the situation.
Moreover, Peter Parker has also got his hands on a symbiote suit which will help him become more powerful. He will be supported in the stint with Miles Morales (who debuted in his own game, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales). The twist in the story is that Miles Morales will be able to witness Peter’s changes due to the Symbiote suit (this wasn’t the case with most of the previous Spider-Man iterations).
We all know Venom will play a major role in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. Nonetheless, it isn’t revealed who will be Venom. The Spider-Man canon has always showcased Eddie Brock as the first Venom. However, fans are speculating that Harry Osborn would be the first Venom host in this game. We are already sure that we will get to see a plethora of things to add zest to your gaming experience. Meanwhile, Kraven will be seen hunting more super-powered beings in the game, like Taskmaster, The Lizard, and Wraith.
Apart from Kraven and his hunters, Both the Spidermen are going to some of the most prominent supervillains from Marvel. Here’s a list of the villains who are going to be a part of the game:
➡️ The Lizard: The Lizard will be a crucial part of the game. In the gameplay reveal of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, the Lizard can be seen running from Kraven and his minions. Moreover, it can be clearly seen that Miles and Peter get together to stop him.
➡️ Shocker: He is a villain who also appeared in the game’s first installment. In the second Marvel game, we will see Shocker escaping prison and playing a vital role in the plot.
➡️ Tombstone: Tombstone is a crime lord whom Spiderman beat up in the first part. However, this time, he will not have his superpowers. This makes for an interesting take on the Tombstone storyline.
➡️ Taskmaster: He will wreak havoc in the game again after making an entry and getting thrashed in the first part. Taskmaster told Spiderman that he was trying to take out the webhead on orders of a mysterious organization that wanted to see if he was worthy of joining the organization full-time. It could be a possibility that the secretive organization will also make its debut in the game.
➡️ Prowler: One of the most powerful villains from Miles Morales’ story is also entering Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. The war with Prowler will be a side quest for Miles Morales in the game.
Apart from the mentioned ones, the game will also include villains like the Raft Prisoners, Chameleon, Black Cat, Wraith, and more will also appear in the game.
Unique Gameplay Elements
As we know that the gameplay was revealed previously, Peter Parker can be seen with more power, thanks to the Symbiote suit. New combat abilities will be a part of the game too. One of the special moves, a huge slam attack, will be able to eradicate multiple enemies in a single shot.
The winged suits of both Miles Morales and Peter Parker will let them travel at a faster speed. What intrigues us the most here is that the gameplay will also have an impact on Peter Parker’s personality, which will definitely enhance the gaming experience of the users.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will be a gift for the web slinger’s fans in all terms. New villains, an extended universe, latest combat mechanics will make the players hooked to the game. The only limitation is that the game will be only available for PS5 users. This means you need to have the console to experience the latest Spider-Man game. Until then, you can enjoy the trailer and gameplay videos available on YouTube.
