One of the best things about PlayStation games coming to PC is the things we learn once our more technologically savvy brethren get their hands on them. Case in point, developer Insomniac apparently toyed around with the prospect of adding multiplayer to Marvel's Spider-Man during development.
Twitter user DniweTamp discovered references to both competitive and cooperative multiplayer modes while sleuthing through the game's executable files, a feat which was later replicated and confirmed by VGC.
While we only have several lines to go off, it appears as though a cooperative mode in which a second player controlled Miles Morales, was on the cards at some point, which sounds thoroughly awesome to us. In addition, PVP callouts were discovered, that reference red and blue teams, and players becoming the Superior Spider-Man. For example, Player 1 has become the Superior Spider-Man!
It's a pretty fascinating prospect, and perhaps something Insomniac will consider looking into in the future. Probably too much to expect from Marvel's Spider-Man 2, but we can dream, can't we?
Do you wish Insomniac had included a multiplayer element to Marvel's Spider-Man? How do you think it would have all worked? Bring a friend along to the comments section below.
