When Insomniac Games ended the show with a splurge of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 gameplay in the previous PlayStation Showcase stream, they showed almost everything but the release date.
At Summer Game Fest 2023, the final important detail has been revealed. The game will be out on October 22.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will see you play as both Peter Parker and Miles Morales as the city of New York (now spanning into Queens and Brooklyn, not just Manhattan like in the previous games) are attacked by new villains. Lizard, Kraven and Venom have been confirmed to be the adversaries you will face.
Venom was not shown during the gameplay reveal, but the Summer Game Fest interview and a new concept art showed that there will be Venom. This is a given after seeing Peter rocking that symbiote costume, but it’s nice to get a hard confirm of their appearance.
Pre-orders for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 in Southeast Asia will go live on June 16, a bit later than other regions.
Marvel’s Spider-Man will be out on October 22 only for the PS5.
