Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Launches Worldwide Only on PlayStation 5
Be Greater Together in Marvel’s Expansive New York City
Today, Sony Interactive Entertainment launches the latest game in the critically acclaimed Marvel’s Spider-Man franchise. In the highly anticipated game, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker and Miles Morales return in an exciting new adventure, built from the ground up to take full advantage of PlayStation 5 (PS5).
Game developer Insomniac Games, a part of PlayStation Studios, has unleashed the power of PlayStation 5 in this action-packed sequel with two playable Spider-Men, enhanced signature high-action gameplay, iconic Super Villains, a visually-stunning Marvel’s New York City, and much more.
“We’re thrilled to finally share the experience of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 with gamers everywhere,” says Hermen Hulst, Head of PlayStation Studios. “I couldn’t be prouder of Insomniac Games. Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is the studio’s fourth PS5 title within the first three years of the console’s launch and it’s the ultimate showcase of everything they’ve learned developing for PS5. It also exemplifies how premier narrative-driven experiences are at the heart of PlayStation Studios’ DNA.”
“Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 represents the triumphant continuation of an important video game series in our collaboration with PlayStation and Insomniac Games,” says Jay Ong, EVP and Head of Marvel Games. “We are thrilled with how our characters are represented and the powerful, meaningful, new stories that emerge from their depictions in game. We can’t wait for fans to experience the saga for themselves.”
“We knew Spider-Man was a perfect fit for us from the moment we began envisioning a unique journey for Peter Parker many years ago, thanks to a warm introduction to Marvel Games by our partners at Sony Interactive Entertainment,” said Ted Price, CEO, Insomniac Games. “Now with an even deeper knowledge of the PS5 and what it can do, we can’t wait to deliver an expansive new adventure for Peter and Miles Morales, a game that continues our dedication to impactful story and compelling gameplay with plenty of surprises.”
The Story Evolves
Throughout the experience, players will control two different Spider-Men – Peter Parker and Miles Morales – while traversing across an expansive Marvel’s New York. Players can quickly switch between Peter and Miles to experience different stories and epic new powers as the iconic Venom threatens to destroy their lives, their city, and the ones they love. Peter and Miles are forced to face the ultimate test of strength, both inside and outside the mask, as they balance their lives, friendships, and their duty to protect those in need.
