Sony capped off the latest PlayStation Showcase with an extended look at Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. It showed off gameplay, story, and a fall 2023 release date.
The more than 10 minutes of new footage from Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 kicks off with Kraven the Hunter deep in the woods, making plans to hunt down Spider-Man, as well as several of his allies and enemies, in New York. Catching up with our web-slinging protagonists, we see that Peter has bonded with the symbiote, granting him a black suit and a new set of abilities. We also see Miles Morales show off new takedowns, a wingsuit, and other extensions of his established powers.
In a subsequent blog post, Insomniac revealed more details about Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. This includes the fact that Kraven’s Hunters is a new enemy faction, and that the game’s map will expand to include parts of Queens and other boroughs. Insomniac has also teased improvements to movement and traversal.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is currently slated for a fall 2023 release date. For more of the announcements out of the May 2023 PlayStation Showcase, Shacknews has the information you need.
