We finally made it, everyone. Marvel's Spider-Man 2, announced about two years ago, has shown its face once again at last, and this time, we got much more than just a teaser. Above is the proper debut trailer for this highly anticipated sequel, and as expected, it's looking excellent.
The game's darker tone is very apparent as we're introduced to Kraven the Hunter, who looks like he'll be the main antagonistic force in the game. We also see Peter Parker donning the black suit, as it looks as though he'll be dealing with the Venom symbiote.
The trailer then goes on to show how we'll be swapping between Peter and Miles Morales, who also has a few new tricks — like the ability to glide, for instance. A third villain also makes their appearance — The Lizard — so it'll be another story with multiple threats pulling at the heroes.
It all looks sensational too — Insomniac is really flexing its muscles here. Unfortunately, we still don't know exactly when the game is coming, with Sony sticking to a Fall 2023 release window for now. Presumably we'll get another presentation focusing on Spidey 2 in the near future, where more details will spill.
Anyway, what did you think of this Marvel's Spider-Man 2 gameplay reveal? Swing by the comments section below.
I haven't played the original games yet, but the gameplay here looked super good. Definitely gonna check it out once I get to the first two Spider-Man games
This game is looking awesome! Need to play Miles Morales soon.
The game was always going to be darker, but I was a little surprised just how dark it looks to be going. Really awesome showing! Can't wait to play.
The only thing that made this showcase worth watching tbh
Those Symbiote abilities look amazing
So stoked for this. The original and Miles are two of my all-time favorites, and this looks phenomenal. Thank Jeebus for current gen only development.
Visually stunning and the new abilities look insanely cool, though the emphasis on cutscenes in this showing specifically is a tad concerning. Most likely won't be an issue when the game releases though so yeah: Spidey 2's looking RAD B)
I already know people are going to be thirsty over Next-Gen Kraven The Hunter.
@theMEGAniggle I was always going to be stoked for Spidey 2, but confirmation of fighting with Venom abilities takes the hype to a different level.
The showcase was just ok for me, but Spidey 2 looks awesome.
Spider-Man 2 along with Metal Gear saved the show for me.
Is it the same voice actor for Spider-man?... he sounded different to me.
Ratchet to me was more impressive than this.
@Westernwolf4 my goodness. I think I will play this for years. The gliding!! I can't stop watching it
Sorry everybody, but it looked like inFamous rip-off.
I loved that you could tell the symbiote was starting affect Peter. I wonder how far into the game he gets the suit. Looking great.
I think they are probably trying to aim for September but aren't quite ready to commit to it yet.
Yeah, but will it have an Arachnophobia mode? That seems to be the growing trend now.
@Topov81 I thought it was, though doing a Batman-gravel voice cos of the whole Venom thing.
I'm currently in the middle of Zelda TOTK, and I don't think anything shown this evening is gonna beat that for my personal game of the year. But, for almost completely opposite reasons why I love TOTK, this looked incredible. My main concern, that there won't be enough variation compared to the previous games, looks somewhat unfounded. Fair play Insomniac! Very excited!
Looks fantastic. I do hope we get a classic version of the Black Suit though what's cel shaded.
@Pat_trick I mean its a set piece what did you expect? Would you rather they were saving kids balloons? We actually learnt a lot about the open world like the fact Queen's included, Miles has a glide thing and that underwater gameplay might feature.
Insomniac really is what Rare was for the N64. They really are amazing there and keep on delivering on the PS5.
Spider-Man 2 - The QTE Game.
Hopefully this gameplay was a earlier build the part where the camera switches the water doesn’t look the best
Spiderman 2 and dragon dogma 2 for the win.yes that gameplay was amazing.word up son
@MeerkatSimples Oh my god, bad looking water in a SPIDERMAN GAME?? Insomniac should be ashamed of themselves
@Nepp67 hopefully it was just a earlier build it was just something I noticed when I watched the showcase didn’t look as good as Spider-Man remastered and miles and they were made for ps4 aswell
Man, this Prototype 3 gameplay is a bit timid compared to Prototype 2. Nevertheless, it still is far out. Can't wait.
@djlard yeah, man, Infamous for Miles parts and Prototype for Peter+Symbiote parts. With less gameplay and more button prompts for well hidden QTEs. Hahaha, can't satisfy gamers these days with anything. LoL
This honestly was pretty disappointing from a visual standpoint. I was hoping to be blown away after all the hype about how Insomniac will fully utilise the PS5's capabilities, but other than the instant loading there's nothing about this that screams current gen only. The textures in particular are still too blurry, like they were on PS4. It also doesn't help that the gameplay isn't shown in 60 fps.
HYPE trailer/gameplay, really made up for the rest of the showcase being "meh" at best, besides a few other games that excited me.
@TaterSlap69 When Kraven snapped that guy's neck in the beginning, I actually gasped a little.
I doubt Spider-Man 2 will be M rated, but they'll definitely be pushing the Teen rating to it's limit it seems.
@MidnightDragonDX Miles Morales is a great game, and it'll get you used to his combat moves, gameplay, and most importantly learn about him as a character.
It is unfortunately a bit shorter than the first game, but if you take your time exploring and taking in the sights, collecting everything etc the game can last a good 10-15 hours.
@BearsEatBeets I was really disappointed to still having the vague Fall 2023 date, but here's hoping they will be able to secure a September 2023 release.
If there is a delay, I'm predicting November 2023 instead of October 2023. Otherwise it'd be releasing in the same month as Alan Wake II, Assassin's Creed: Mirage, and Lords of the Fallen (2).
@MeerkatSimples My comment was just a joke. The water isn't that bad nor are you going to be focusing on much of it due to you swinging around the city.
Simply WOW...amazing, can't wait to play 🙂
Game looks fine but...something about that Venom suit looks awkward. The smooth texture just makes it even more apparent.
Poor Peter always gets so cringey when he puts on the symbiote suit
@Topov81 he's growling a lot more - a sign of the symbiote affecting him.
Ps5 graphics bolted on to PS3 gameplay. Combat looks terribly shallow and the on rails occasional button press sections looked two generations old
@Exerion76 It looked terribly generic. 2023 and we're still playing Where's Wally with the TV screen, wondering where the X or O will turn up
Am i the only one here who thinks it doesn't really look like a major step up from the original..? More like a ps4 game than a ps5 one...
