With just over a month until their next game release, Insomniac Games has unveiled a series of character posters for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, revealing the closest looks at updated looks and new villains for our friendly neighborhood Spider-Men to face in the highly anticipated sequel.
Being built from the ground up for the newest PlayStation means the game will see a large set of improvements over the 2018 and 2020 installments, Marvel’s Spider-Man and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, including faster web swinging, near-instant character switching, and better visuals. The sequel will give players the opportunity to take advantage of the larger map, which now includes Brooklyn and Queens, as both Peter Parker and Miles Morales as they face iconic villains such as Kraven the Hunter and Lizard, all while tangling with the Venom symbiote. Both Peter and Miles have story missions exclusive to them, and both are featured as the main protagonists in the next installment of this story, with both receiving upgrades.
The character posters can be seen below:
The synopsis for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 reads:
“The incredible power of the symbiote forces Peter and Miles 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.”
