Three new screenshots of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 have been published as part of a New York Times report which largely digs into Insomniac Games’ attempt to recreate the iconic American city in the game. The images – included in a paywalled article – show how locations like Prospect Park have been recreated, although the Chrysler building will once again be absent like in Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, as the Burbank-based developer has been unable to obtain its license yet again.
There’s not an enormous amount of information to glean from these images, but it’s clear that the developer has once again gone all-out with its environmental artwork, and as it’s continuing to iterate on large parts of the same location from its hit 2018 title, it’s really beginning to layer in the detail now. Obviously, it’s expanding the city for the sequel, too, by adding Queens and Brooklyn to the overall sandbox.
