Spider-Man 2 Platforms: Is Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 a PlayStation Exclusive?

Yes, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is a PlayStation exclusive and will only be released on PlayStation 5 platform. That means it is also exclusive to the next-gen Sony console, so PlayStation 4 owners will be out of luck.

While the game will not initially launch on any other platform, there is a possibility that patient PC gamers may eventually get a chance to play the game on their preferred platform. Both of the previous games, Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, were made available on PC through Steam in the later half of 2022. While it is likely that PC fans won’t see this new sequel on Steam any time soon, if they were willing to wait a couple of years their patience may be rewarded.

Spider-Man 2: Story and Setting

As mentioned, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 story and setting is a sequel to two separate but related games: Marvel’s Spider-Man and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Developers have shared that the events of the new game will pick up about 10 months after the story in Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales ends. Given that Miles Morales’ story unfolded in late 2020, this means that Spider-Man 2 is set sometime in mid to late 2021.

The game’s tagline, “Be Greater. Together,” strongly suggests that the gameplay will include a lot of teamwork between Peter Parker and Miles Morales as they face off against a host of villains. Confirmed criminals and combatants include Lizard and Karven the Hunter, along with the Venom symbiote, which has taken Peter Parker as its host.

Spider-Man 2: Gameplay

Marvel's Spider Man 2 Peter and Miles

Developed by Insomniac Games, the studio known for its impeccable attention to detail, the gameplay offers players the chance to step into the shoes of not one but two iconic web-slingers: Peter Parker and Miles Morales. The heart of the gameplay, as always, lies in the web-swinging mechanics. The fluidity and realism of swinging through the intricately detailed New York City are unparalleled. Additionally, this time around, you’ll have the ability to use Web Wings, which give Spider-Man the ability to glide in in-between swings. Wind tunnels and currents will give you agility and maneuverability that can give you an extra edge in fights.

The open-world environment is teeming with life, offering a dynamic and ever-changing playground for players to explore. Whether you’re gracefully gliding between skyscrapers or engaging in heart-pounding chases through the bustling streets, the traversal in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is a visceral thrill.

The game’s combat system has also received an overhaul and improvement. Players can expect improved animations, refined controls, and new abilities and gadgets that make battles more fluid and enjoyable. Combat arenas are available, where players can test their skills against a wide array of enemies, and work on perfecting their skills before taking on some of the intense boss battles.
