Marvel Entertainment and Insomniac Games revealed the first gameplay footage of the highly anticipated Spider-Man 2 video game that’s currently in the works. Fans have been waiting for a while to check out some actual gameplay footage for the upcoming sequel for a time, and it’s finally arrived.
The game is due out later this fall, and you can check out the newly revealed footage below:
NEW SPIDER-MAN 2 GAMEPLAY FOOTAGE SHOWS THE SYMBIOTE SUITE IN ACTION
The new gameplay footage shows off Peter Parker, who now has the Venom symbiote black costume in the newly revealed gameplay footage. It looks like Kraven the Hunter, aka Sergei Kravinoff, has arrived in New York City, and he’s hunter Dr. Curt Connors, aka The Lizard, which draws out the Spider-Men, Peter Parker and Miles Morales, who have to help.
It looks like Peter wearing his new symbiote costume will be an active part of the gameplay. Previously, the reveal trailer for the title revealed that Venom will appear in the game, with Tony Todd providing the voice of the Venom symbiote.
It’s not yet clear how Venom will make his ultimate appearance in the game, along with who will be taking up the Venom identity, but it looks like what happens here takes place in the early half of the game. It also looks like gamers will be taking control of both Peter Parker’s Spider-Man along with Miles Morales’ Spider-Man.
The addition of the symbiote suit looks like it will grant Peter a new set of abilities and techniques for the gameplay experience. Also, based on the cutscenes, it looks like the symbiote’s influence is having an affect on Peter, making him more violent and aggressive. And it looks like Miles is noticing the changes caused by the symbiote as well. It will be interesting to see how this plays out in the final product and how Venom figures into the story, and if it is in fact Eddie Brock who eventually dons the symbiote and transforms into Venom.
Besides Spider-Man 2, some other exciting Marvel Comics-based AAA games are also in the works. Insomniac Games is also developing a solo-Wolverine video game title that features the best there is at what he does, Wolverine, in an open-world action-adventure game. This title is being developed for the PlayStation 5.
The Montreal-based Motive Studio is working on a single-player, third-person Iron Man action-adventure video game. Olivier Proulx, who previously worked on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy video game, is leading development on the Iron Man game. Other talents working on the upcoming title include Ian Frazier Maëlenn Lumineau, and JF Poirier.
And lastly, Skydance New Media is developing a still-untitled action-adventure game featuring Captain America and Black Panther set during World War II. The new Marvel titles don’t have release dates yet, but hopefully, we’ll be hearing more about them very soon. Hopefully, they new games will turn out better than the recent disappointing Marvel’s Avengers video game.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is currently in the works from Insomniac Games. The game is due out later this year, and it will be available exclusively for the PlayStation 5 console.
