The wait is nearly over, everyone. Marvel and Sony have announced the release date for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. The follow-up to the hit 2018 video game will officially hit shelves on October 20, 2023. The game will see players utilizing both Peter Parker and Miles Morales in a bigger adventure with even more villains.
At least at first, Spider-Man 2 will be available exclusively on the PlayStation 5. More recently, Sony made both 2018’s Spider-Man and Spider-Man: Miles Morales available on PC. So it’s possible that the game could debut on PC down the line. However, Xbox and Nintendo Switch owners will almost certainly be out of luck. Pre-Orders are set to go live next week on June 16th.
We don’t have a synopsis but Marvel released the following description of the game.
“The main storyline of the game will have you take control of both Spider-Men at different points of the campaign. In the open world, you will be able to switch nearly instantly between them as you explore Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn. Both Spider-Men have stories and missions in the world exclusive to each of them. Just as the box art spotlight suggests, Peter and Miles are both key protagonists in the story. The iconic red background returns, but darkness surrounds as fan-favorite villains like Venom, Lizard, and Kraven threaten them and Marvel’s New York. You will also notice that each character’s arm represents their new abilities: Peter with the symbiote, Miles with his evolved bioelectric Venom powers.”
Fans who pre-order any version of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will receive an early unlock Arachknight Suit for Peter with 3 additional color variants. They will also get an early unlock Shadow Spider Suit for Miles with 3 additional color variants, as well as an early unlock Web Grabber gadget and 3 skill points. The standard game will retail for $69.99.
