Quick trailer confirms Insomniac’s big 2018 hit is getting a full sequel




Face front, true believers! Marvel’s Spider-Man is indeed getting a sequel. Insomniac Games teased the new game on Thursday at Sony’s PlayStation Showcase 2021 and teased an important new villain: Venom.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is coming to PlayStation 5 in 2023, and both Peter Parker and Miles Morales will be in it as your friendly neighborhood Spider-Men.

Ryan Schneider, head of franchise strategy and studio relations at Insomniac Games, said on the PlayStation Blog that Marvel’s Spider-Man creative director Bryan Intihar and game director Ryan Smith will return for the sequel. Schneider also revealed that Tony Todd (of Candyman fame) will be voice Venom in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. Yuri Lowenthal and Nadji Jeter will reprise their roles as Peter and Miles, respectively.

Marvel’s Spider-Man launched in 2018 for PlayStation 4 and was a tremendous hit for both Sony and Insomniac Games. Sony acquired the studio in 2019, following a nearly 20-year history of Insomniac developing big franchises for PlayStation consoles.

The first game starred Peter Parker/Spider-Man and practically every major villain he’s taken on in the character’s 50-year history. The story builds to a confrontation with Mister Negative, a relatively new baddie (first appearance in 2008) but ended on a cliffhanger that left plenty of narrative room for a sequel.

It was followed by a spinoff, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, a stand-alone title for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 that launched in November 2020. That continued the plot line introduced in the main game, where teenager Miles Morales is bitten by a spider genetically engineered by Norman Osborn, gaining spider-powers in an origin story similar to the one introducing the character in 2011.

Venom hype!!

Would be super cool if there are parts where you can toggle between both Spideys in combat, kinda like the way it's done in FFVIIR. Would make way for tag team moves and stuff. Only way Peter and Miles can put up a fight against someone as powerful as Venom lol.

Hmmmm.. I'm more into the conventional block here i guess. I just want to go along with a single character from the beginning and hope it has a somewhat different story from the other one and maybe a few missions where they could tag team. It would be really interesting to see INSOMNIAC's approach to both these characters.

Yeah, this would be a better approach. Individual campaigns that overlap at certain junctures and both Spideys can team up to take on a major enemy etc.

Spider-Man Remastered and Miles Morales had SSR for reflections on water surrounding the city. I thought we were comparing the 1st and 2nd game 🤷‍♂️ :LOL:

Regarding the inferior LOD, faster flow of data alone isn't enough to allow faster traversal. It still needs to be within the rendering budget, and therefore cutbacks appear to have been made accordingly. Totally fine with it :LOL:🤜

And someone said "next gen assets" shouldn't be an issue. Reality of console hardware is the LOD is worse than last gen LMAOOOOO....poor assets and still there is pop in. CerebralTiger's estimation of this hardware's capabilities continues to fail him 🤣

Insooooomniac, move toooo Nanite jaisi tech pleaaaase 🤣🤣🤣

Assets are indeed current-gen. Don't recall saying there wouldn't be LOD management associated with them 🤷‍♂️ :LOL:

Pop-in is also a GPU limitation. Faster IO and decompression is allowing Spidey to troooly swing tho :LOL:🤜

Imagine Necrokiller praising Nanite now :ROFLMAO:

And how did I miss CerebralTiger posting a Sony ponies tweet, also conveniently named Tiger, as evidence of this game reaching "CGI quality"? HOLY SHIIIIIIIT 🤣

"We have content designed around Peter, we have content designed around Miles and we have content where you can play either," Intihar shared. "You'll be able to - in the open world - freely switch between them with a simple button press." This is thanks to the power of the PlayStation 5.

In b4 Necrokiller inadvertently praises GTA V 🤷‍♂️:LOL:

Unlike CerebralTiger, I've actually finished the GTAV campaign so I'm in a much better position to praise or criticize it 🤷‍♂️

Atleast Insomniac's characters are a multi-generation ahead in terms of controls compared to GTA V. That's what matters more, not doing what GTA V does but faster 🤷‍♂️🤣

DF's video mostly praised how natural the water looked with RT.

But the inevitable 60 FPS mode will no doubt strip the RT.

Unless they have enough grunt out of the PS5 to do a lite-RT mode with 60 FPS again.

If Insomniac can improve the plot/pacing of the main story and add more meaningful side activities like the ones seen in Arkham Asylum/Arkham City, why wouldn't it get a 90+ metascore? 🤷‍♂️ :LOL:

    exactly , first encounter is with gay freaks , 2nd one is big and revolved around a lesbian failed lover who is the main bad character , the mc itself is a beta while the biracial couple has masculine female lol .
    I didn't even went that far. Just started the game the female MC already seemed fishy. Then they went into the inn and they mistook him for the hunter and he was like "She is the boss, I'm the apprentice". The male one doesn't seem to have a personality too. The female MC says they don't need a marriage paper to stay together. The male MC nods like a dog. I deleted it after that :ROFLMAO:

    On a serious note, wokeism is being heavily rejected by the masses. That's why woke media/games are flopping hard in massive numbers (with a few rare exceptions). The term "Go woke, go broke!" highlights this phenomenon very clearly. Most producers, developers & investors are starting to realize this fact the hard way, and hence i reckon wokeism will slowly vanish into thin air sometime in the future. 😏
