Insomniac Games’ first step into the superhero genre with Marvel’s Spider-Man was a blast in 2018, and felt like an adrenaline shot to the webhead’s video game prospects. Not long after, the studio followed it up with a spinoff focused on Miles Morales, which made it quite clear that it was in the Marvel space for the long haul. And now that both Peter and Miles have gotten their own games to shine, it’s time to see how they work together as a real unit.
Picking up some time after Miles Morales, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 sees the two Spider-heroes team up to take down Kraven the Hunter. Bored of hunting animals, Kraven’s set his sights on New York with his army to find himself a worthy opponent in the form of Peter and Miles. And as it turns out, Peter might be the bigger threat, as he’s got the black Symbiote suit and is very brutal with it.
Players will switch between Peter and Miles at the press of a button, and each Spider will have their own special abilities. But they’ll also share some skills, like web wings to help them fly around New York. Even with their differences, it’s clear how much the two heroes are in sync as they take down Kraven’s army and hunt down the Lizard. Hopefully that relationship will still be intact when all is said and done.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will release this fall, exclusively for the PlayStation 5.
