Whereas there’s nonetheless so much to be taught concerning the highly-anticipated sequel to Marvel’s Spider-Man and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, now we have heard a bit from the builders over at Insomniac. There’s been a quick teaser trailer as properly, which gave us a glimpse as to what we are able to anticipate as soon as the sport launches.
The primary factor we all know at current is that each Miles and Peter will characteristic closely in Spider-Man 2, and that they are going to be dealing with off in opposition to Venom. Kraven the Hunter can be closely teased within the aforementioned trailer, so we’re in for an excellent time certainly.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2: launch date and platforms
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is because of launch in Fall 2023 solely for PS5, fully skipping PS4. This was confirmed through a Tweet by PlayStation (opens in new tab) (opens in a brand new tab). Rumors had advised that we’d be getting a launch date imminently, so it was nice to have it confirmed. For now, Fall 2023 is the closest now we have to a remaining date. We’ll replace if we hear extra.
Whereas not confirmed, it is potential we might see Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 coming to PC at a later date. We have seen Sony bringing increasingly of its first-party titles to PC just lately, with Marvel’s Spider-Man and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales already on the platform. We would not anticipate Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 to be obtainable on Steam at launch, however a PC launch later down the road appears seemingly.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 trailer
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 was revealed with a trailer on the September 2021 PlayStation Showcase. The trailer is barely round one-and-half minutes lengthy, nevertheless it affords us a good quantity of particulars. For one, we see each Peter Parker and Miles Morales taking combating goons, suggesting we could get to play as each Spider-Males this time round.
On the very finish, we received a shock look of the notorious Spider-Man villain Venom – an outer-world symbiote with a ardour for violence – so we anticipate he’ll be one of many sequel’s essential villains. Sadly, there was no gameplay to investigate, however we briefly see a shot of Peter getting an influence surge together with his Iron Spider arms, suggesting go well with powers could also be making a return.
We additionally hear an ominous voice speaking over the trailer, suggesting Peter and Miles may have yet one more villain to face off in opposition to. Primarily based on their speech about on the lookout for a problem and formidable opponent we’d put our cash on it being Kraven the Hunter – a traditional Spider-Man villain within the comics. Take a look at the trailer under:

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 could possibly be coming in September
Venom actor Tony Todd appears to have let the cat out of the bag when it comes to Spider-Man 2‘s launch month (via Eurogamer (opens in new tab)). Responding to a fan’s touch upon an Instagram put up that they could not await the sport, Todd replied “Seems to be like September! Large publicity coming in August. Commercials begin dropping in August so I am instructed. Maintain on to your … and maintain breath! Gonna be vital.”
Clearly, this is not formally phrase from Insomniac, however for now it is our greatest info on after we can anticipate to be enjoying the sport.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2: what we need to see
The trailer appears to recommend we’ll be enjoying as each Miles and Peter, and the ending of Miles’ solo recreation would again that up however we don’t but know for certain. We definitely hope we do get to play as each Spider-Males although, as it might give Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 far more story and gameplay choices (and provides us twice the web-slinging motion).
The Spider-Duo are seen performing combo strikes through the PlayStation Showcase 2021 teaser, which signifies we would be capable of play as each on the identical time at numerous factors within the recreation, however on condition that it was all only a cinematic there’s no method to know for certain.
A scarier facet of Spider-Man
With Venom and (probably) Kraven the Hunter making an look in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, Insomniac appears to be gearing its story in direction of the scarier villains in Spider-Man’s rogue’s gallery.
We hope Insomniac delves even deeper into this and contains a number of different horrifying characters just like the Lizard, Morbius (or different Marvel vampires like Morlun), and perhaps even the Jackal. We wouldn’t be shocked if Inexperienced Goblin or Hob Goblin confirmed up both.
Curt Conners, the human scientist who transforms into the Lizard, already appeared in Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales suggesting his villainous facet might very properly present up within the sequel. The identical is true of Norman Osborn who was a key character within the first Marvel’s Spider-Man recreation so it may not be lengthy earlier than he turns into the Inexperienced Goblin.
Primarily based on the ending of Marvel’s Spider-Man’s DLC, it appears like Venom could possibly be Harry Osborn (Norma’s son) on this collection. If Harry befalls some horrible destiny – seemingly by the hands of Spider-Man – that could possibly be what drives Norman Osborn to grow to be a villain.
We’ll admit that Jackal and Morlun make so much much less sense, as they tie into for much longer tales like Spider-Man’s Clone Saga and Spider-Verse that will be deserving of their very own devoted recreation, however we’ll have to attend and see.
A world past New York
Whereas Spider-Man is understood for being an NYC hero, we would wish to see our wall-crawler make a journey to new areas in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 earlier than the town begins to really feel stale. Whereas the teaser appears to recommend we’ll positively be in a New York-like metropolis at some factors, due to the PS5’s SSD storage and energy Insomniac would be capable of load in different massive areas to discover too.
One choice – particularly in the event that they take the horror route – could possibly be to incorporate a personality like Physician Unusual who might transport us into fearsome realms, or we would see our heroes go on the run in the event that they discover Kraven the Hunter too lethal a risk to deal with. Heck, we might even go to go to Symkaria the house of Silver Sable, and a location that Peter was visiting in Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
New York positively works nice as a setting for Spider-Man video games due to its looming skyscrapers which can be excellent for web-swinging, however on condition that it is already featured in each of Insomniac’s earlier titles we’re apprehensive it’s going to develop boring finally.
