We've been luxuriating in all the new Marvel's Spider-Man 2 details from today's San Diego Comic-Con panel, which included a stunning new story trailer and a limited-edition Spider-Man 2 PS5 bundle, the aesthetics of which has already polarised opinion within Push Square's own editorial staff.
We even got to learn more about the game's narrative and how it connects to Insomniac's larger Spider-Verse, which currently consists of Marvel's Spider-Man and standalone expansion, Miles Morales. Over on the PlayStation Blog, a bunch more story details were revealed, which leaves us anticipating October all the more. Senior narrative director Jon Paquette sets the scene:
“At the beginning of our story, our Spider-Men are at the top of their game, but both Peter Parker and Miles Morales are struggling with their personal lives. Miles is trying to find time to write his college entrance essay, but he keeps procrastinating and focusing on Spider-Work instead. Meanwhile, Peter is underwater on payments for Aunt May’s house, but he can’t sell it; it means too much to him. And just like Miles, Peter tries (and fails) to find balance with so many responsibilities. MJ wants to help Pete with the mortgage, but her job is on the line now that J. Jonah Jameson is back at the Bugle and looking to clean house. Our heroes have arrived at a confluence of crossroads, with uncertain futures and some tough decisions ahead.”
