Insomniac Games released the first gameplay trailer for Spider-Man 2 during the PlayStation 5 Showcase event. The game will feature the characters of Peter Parker and Miles Morales, this information was also included in the previous statements.
In the trailer, popular Spider-Man villains Hunter Kraven and Dr. Curt Connors (also known as Lizard) appears to have arrived in New York. Kraven is trying to hunt down every superpowered person in the city, including Spider-Man.
The symbiote also plays an important role in the game and has already had an impact on Peter Parker. This alien suit makes special attacks more brutal. Insomniac describes the Symbiote suit’s combat this way: “ With new combat abilities, you can deftly neutralize new formidable opponents. You can gain the upper hand with aggressive parries or cast nets to guide enemies from one place to another. You can use evasion mechanisms to avoid danger, but be careful; You can’t avoid some attacks easily and you may need a good dodge skill to dodge them !”
Miles Morales also takes part in this game, offering the opportunity to quickly switch between two heroes. In addition, it will be possible to glide through the city, especially in the so-called “Net Wings”.
“ You’ll be able to seamlessly switch between the two Spider-Mans at different story moments in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, ” the studio says. “ We want players to enjoy signature set pieces with enhanced iconic suits and experience the story from each Spider-Man’s perspective .”
Spider-Man 2’s release date has yet to be announced, but it’s scheduled to launch for the PlayStation 5 in fall 2023.
