Spider-Man 2 Gameplay Shows Off Symbiote Suit And More

Karven The Hunter

“This version makes his debut appearance in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and he’s in search of an equal,” Espinoza said. “That spells bad news for the inhabitants of Marvel’s New York including a rogue’s gallery of villains and the Spider-Men, Peter Parker and Miles Morales. Between the start of Kraven’s Great Hunt and an all-new Symbiote threat to Earth-1048, our heroes have their work cut out for them.”

“We don’t waste any time: bursting through basement doors is Peter Parker, our original Spider-Man in this story, who needs no introduction,” said Espinoza. “But what he’s wearing perhaps deserves one: he’s donning the highly coveted, iconic, and beloved Black Suit and he’s more than ready for a fight.”

Espinoza added, “Our animators put the work in to deliver a much more impulsive Peter Parker, fitting for the symbiote bonded to his person, without sacrificing his combative finesse. New takedowns humble even the most rugged enemies, and new combat animations push Spider-Man’s limits. I mean, did you see what Spider-Man did to this guy?”

Espinoza also said, “In Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, we’re putting respect on the Black Suit and giving it the story it deserves. In this installment, we’re really delving into Peter’s personal relationship with the Symbiote and how it affects those closest to him…”

What is Spider-Man 2 about?

Working together, the Spider-Men must pursue Lizard and fight the Hunters who seek his capture. Unfortunately for them, Kraven is well-equipped: boats, aerial transports, and weapons are all-eyes on Lizard. The Great Hunt continues along the East River, one of the new areas you can traverse in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, and the action is tight: Miles dismantles vehicles in his wake while Peter Parker leads the chase from afar.  

You’ll seamlessly switch between both Spider-Men across a variety of story moments in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. Players can bask in the iconic team-ups elevated by signature set piece moments, and experience the story from the POV of each Spider-Man. 

The game gets released this Fall.
