Even if opinions about the PlayStation Showcase were mixed, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 had an impressive gameplay debut. It introduced Kraven and the Lizard as new antagonists, showcased Spider-Man’s Symbiote suit, new gadgets and abilities, and more. Is there the worry that Insomniac Games showed too much too soon?
Actor Yuri Lowenthal, who voices Peter Parker, thinks otherwise. “You saw the gameplay drop. Some of you said, ‘Ah, they showed too much!’ I assure you…You have seen nothing yet. It is…Yeah, we’ve just scratched the surface – it is just the ‘Thwip! of the Spider-Berg,’ if I may coin that,” he told IGN.
Insomniac has already clarified that the gameplay revealed wasn’t from the final build, which means it could look even better graphically. As for what the story holds and the epic set pieces players can look forward to, time will tell, so stay tuned.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is out in Fall 2023, exclusively for PS5. The developer said it would reveal the release date and other information, like when fans could pre-order and accessibility features, soon. In the meantime, check out some screenshots from the gameplay reveal here.
