Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Story Trailer is Filled with Symbiote Action
Insomniac Games and PlayStation have just dropped a new trailer for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, which was shown off during a panel at San Diego Comic-Con. It’s got a lot of Peter Parker and Miles Morales, MJ, and Kraven, a bit of the Lizard, some symbiote action, and most importantly… Venom! The last trailer was all about the gameplay, but the Spider-Man 2 story trailer focuses on how we will cross paths with this slate of enemies.
It looks like Spider-Man 2 is going to be a bit darker than the first two games, especially when Peter Parker has to deal with the dark side of the symbiote that as we know, brings out the worst in anyone who binds with it. We also had the grand reveal that Venom will be voiced by none other than Tony Todd which should ensure a sinister voice is headed our way.
Jon Paquette, the narrative director for the game also shared more details, saying:
“At the beginning of our story, our Spider-Men are at the top of their game. But both Peter Parker and Miles Morales are struggling with their personal lives. Miles is trying to find time to write his college entrance essay, but he keeps procrastinating and focusing on Spider-Work instead.
Meanwhile, Peter is underwater on payments for Aunt May’s house, but he can’t sell, it means too much to him. And just like Miles, Peter tries (and fails) to find balance with so many responsibilities. MJ wants to help Pete with the mortgage, but her job is on the line now that J. Jonah Jameson is back at the Bugle and looking to clean house. Our heroes have arrived at a confluence of crossroads, with uncertain futures, and some tough decisions ahead.”
Along with the new trailer, PlayStation also unveiled the new limited edition Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 PlayStation 5 bundle which will include a custom PlayStation 5 console with a Spidey-themed design to the console and a matching DualSense controller.
It will also include a digital copy of the game. If you are on the hunt for a PS5 or just want to add this sleek console to your collection, then be ready when preorders go live on July 28, 2023. The console will arrive on September 1, 2023, ahead of the game’s October release.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 hits PlayStation 5 on October 20, 2023.
