Exploring Marvel’s Spider-Man 2: Dive into Gameplay and Discover Playable Characters


The 2023 PlayStation Showcase footage confirmed that both Peter and Miles will be playable in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. In the gameplay footage, it seemed like players will be prompted to alternate between the two heroes during certain sections of missions; however, Insomniac has since stated that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will feature a character-switching mechanic like Grand Theft Auto 5 when exploring the game’s open world. Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will retain the free-flowing combat and web-swinging gameplay that made the first two games such a hit, albeit with a few more tweaks and additions that take full advantage of the PS5 hardware, such as the addition of web-wings for faster traversal.

After some eagle-eyed fans had already noticed clues pointing towards Queens and Brooklyn being part of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2′s bigger game map, these locations were confirmed in the gameplay footage, which started in Queens before seeing Peter and Miles pursue The Lizard along the East River. These real-life locations are significant to the Spider-Man mythos as the homes of Peter and Miles respectively, and Peter previously revealed that he is moving back into Aunt May’s old house near the end of Spider-Man: Miles Morales, with the Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 prequel comic teasing that he was struggling with money while applying for his teaching certificate.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 has multiple skill trees – one for Peter, one for Miles, and a shared one – to upgrade Miles’ special bioelectric powers, and Peter’s symbiote abilities, there is still some speculation that the game may be hiding a third playable character and that these upgraded symbiote abilities could be passed to Venom after Peter’s finished with the symbiote. For now, only Peter and Miles are confirmed as playable, but allowing players to take control of Venom would be a good way to transfer these upgrades while giving fans of the Ultimate Spider-Man game some nostalgia.
