Marvel's Spider-Man 2 surely tops many players' list of the most anticipated games coming in 2023. It will be exclusive to PS5 and continues the story of Peter Parker and Miles Morales as they face off against new enemies.

While there's still a lot to learn about the highly-anticipated sequel to Marvel's Spider-Man and Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, we do know some details from the game's initial reveal that we don't have an exact date yet. A trailer was released along with the reveal. It showed Venom walking out of the shadows towards Peter and Miles. Kraven the Hunter is also rumored to be one of the villains.

There are a lot of questions Sony and Insomniac have yet to answer about Marvel's Spider-Man 2, but it's still early days. As we get closer to a possible release date, we'll probably know more about what to expect from the second Spidey installment. For now, here's everything we know so far.

Marvel's Spider-Man 2: release date and platforms

Marvel's Spider-Man 2 will release in 2023 exclusively for PS5, skipping PS4 entirely. At this time, we don't have a more specific release date outside of this 2023 release window, though we expect developer Insomniac Games to drop the date later this year.

The good news is that Spider-Man 2 is still on track for its 2023 release window, according to Insomniac. In response (opens in a new tab) to a fan concerned about a delay on Twitter, the official Insomniac Games account said: "We're making a lot of progress and it's still planned for 2023."

While it's not confirmed, it's possible that we could see Marvel's Spider-Man 2 coming to PC at a later date. We've seen Sony bring more and more first-party titles to PC recently, with Marvel's Spider-Man already on the platform and Miles Morales arriving in November. We wouldn't expect Marvel's Spider-Man 2 to be available on Steam at launch, but it seems likely that there will be a PC version down the road.

Marvel's Spider-Man 2: Trailer

reveal trailer
Marvel's Spider-Man 2 was revealed with a trailer during the September 2021 PlayStation showcase. The trailer is only a minute and a half long, but it gives us a fair amount of detail. For one, we see Peter Parker and Miles Morales take on battle goons, suggesting that we might be playing both Spider-Men this time around.

In the end, we got a surprise appearance from Spider-Man's infamous villain Venom, a symbiote from the outside world with a passion for violence, so we expect him to be one of the main villains of the sequel. Sadly, there was no gameplay to review, but we briefly see a shot of Peter getting a power-up with his Iron Spider's arms, suggesting that the suit's powers may be returning.

We also hear an ominous voice speaking in the trailer, suggesting that Peter and Miles will have another villain to face. Sur la base de leur discours sur la recherche d'un défi et d'un adversaire redoutable, nous miserions sur le fait que Kraven le chasseur – un méchant classique de Spider-Man avec une attitude similaire envers la proie qu'il recherche dans les Cartoon. Watch the trailer below:

Does the gameplay reveal the arrival?
Media analyst and Insider Millie Amand has stated that we will be getting a look at the gameplay of Marvel's Spider-Man 2 soon. Stating that it is "currently exceeding the expectations of Marvel's superiors", Amand tweeted that "the 'flow' and the 'stunning eye' are astonishing according to a Marvel employee." She finished by saying that we will have gameplay footage soon.

Unfortunately, Marvel's Spider-Man 2 didn't make an appearance in the September 2022 State of Play nor the one that aired in October 2022. Hopefully, it won't be long before we get our first look at the upcoming sequel, 'Insomniac' .

Cooperative on the cards?
It is rumored that Marvel's Spider-Man 2 only includes some kind of cooperative element.

Following the release of Marvel's Spider-Man on PC, data miners have discovered what appears to be an abandoned multiplayer mode in the game files. Found by Twitter user (Opens in a new tab) DniweTamp (via Reddit (Opens in a new tab)), the files appear to show co-op and multiplayer notifications, as well as some sort of PvP mode that would pit Miles against each other. Morales and Peter Parker in a contest.

It's pretty exciting stuff, but Insomniac never announced plans for a multiplayer mode in the first place. Now, fans are naturally wondering if we could see the feature making some sort of appearance in Marvel's Spider-Man 2.

The PlayStation Blog post (opens in a new tab) announcing the game explicitly stated that the sequel is a single player experience, but the reveal trailer leaned heavily on Peter's fight alongside Miles, which could translate into cooperation. While it doesn't seem impossible that Marvel's Spider-Man 2 could launch as a single player experience but add a cooperative element at a later date, we simply can't be sure of Insomniac's plans until he officially confirms it.

Writer Miles Morales joins Insomniac Games
Brittney M. Morris, the author of the Miles Morales prequel novel Wings of Fury, has joined Insomniac Games as a writer. Morris broke the news on Twitter, revealing that the first project she will be working on is Marvel's Spider-Man 2.

The addition of Morris to the team is undoubtedly good news. His novel was well received and his knowledge of the character of Miles Morales will no doubt go a long way in writing the sequel.

Well, I promised big announcements for the new year, so here we go! I joined @insomniacgames! First draft: #SpiderManPS5 🎮😄 Jan 6, 2022

It will be a darker sequel like Empire Strikes Back
It looks like we're really getting the darker Spider-Man game we all wanted. During an appearance on the This Week in Marvel podcast (opens in a new tab), Marvel Vice President Creative Bill Rosemann explained that "if the first Spider-Man game was Star Wars [A New Hope], Spider-Man 2 is our empire [Strikes Back]. It gets a little darker."

That certainly makes us happy here at TRG because hopefully it means Insomniac's Spider-Man will continue to be his own distinct version rather than a knockoff of the more familiar version we're used to in the MCU.

The horror movie star will play Venom
Speaking to the Official PlayStation Blog (Opens in a new tab) after PlayStation Showcase 2021, Insomniac Games revealed that horror film star Tony Todd (who plays Candyman in the original film series of the same name) will be playing Candyman. Venom.

Todd is the perfect choice for Venom and is sure to provide a creepy, gruff voice that will have us hiding behind the couch whenever Venom is on screen. His casting also bolsters our hopes that Marvel's Spider-Man 2 will take on a scarier tone, so we're especially excited to hear about his involvement.

Speaking of voice actors, Yuri Lowenthal and Nadji Jeter will reprise their roles as Peter and Miles respectively.

Marvel's Spider-Man 2: what we want to see

marvel spider men
The trailer seems to suggest we'll be playing as Miles and Peter, and Miles' single player ending would confirm that, but we don't know for sure yet. We certainly hope we get to play as Spider-Men, because that would give Marvel's Spider-Man 2 a lot more story and gameplay options (and give us double the action on the web).

The Spider-Duo are seen performing combo moves during the PlayStation Showcase 2021 teaser, which indicates that we could play both at the same time at different points in the game, but since it was just one cutscene, there's no way to do that. be sure.

A creepier side of Spider-Man
With Venom and (potentially) Kraven the Hunter making appearances in Marvel's Spider-Man 2, Insomniac seems to be gearing his story towards the scarier villains of Spider-Man's rogues gallery.

Here's hoping Insomniac expands on this and includes various other creepy characters like the Lizard, Morbius (or other Marvel vampires like Morlun), and maybe even the Jackal. We wouldn't be surprised if Green Goblin or Hob Goblin showed up.

Curt Conners, the human scientist who turns into a lizard, previously appeared in Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, suggesting that his evil side could show up in the sequel. The same goes for Norman Osborn, who was a key character in Marvel's first Spider-Man game, so it might not be long before he becomes the Green Goblin.

Based on the ending of Marvel's Spider-Man DLC, it looks like Venom could be Harry Osborn (Norma's son) in this series. If Harry suffers a terrible fate, apparently at the hands of Spider-Man, that could be what drives Norman Osborn to become a villain.

We'll admit that Jackal and Morlun make a lot less sense, as they tie into much longer stories like Spider-Man's Clone Saga and Spider-Verse that would deserve their own dedicated game, but we'll have to wait and see.

A world beyond New York
While Spider-Man is known as a New York City hero, we'd like to see our wall-crawling robot take a trip to some new locations in Marvel's Spider-Man 2 before the city starts to feel stale. While the trailer seems to suggest we'll definitely be in a New York-like city at times, thanks to the SSD storage and power of the PS5, Insomniac could load up on some other great places to explore as well.

One option, especially if they're going the horror route, could be to include a character like Doctor Strange, who could transport us to spooky realms, or we could see our heroes flee if they find Kraven. The Hunter is too deadly a threat. drive. . Heck, we might even go visit Symkaria, the home of Silver Sable, and a place Peter visited in Spider-Man: Miles Morales.

New York works perfectly as a setting for the Spider-Man games thanks to its skyscrapers, which are perfect for web-swing, but since it's already featured in Insomniac's previous two titles, we're worried it won't get boring. time.
