Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Will Have Features That Would Only Be Possible On PS5

Earlier, Insomniac clarified that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 was always a single-player project. They never even considered the possibility of inserting a cooperative experience, according to the directors.

However, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is a PS5 exclusive and will be released in 2023. Insomniac has not prepared a PS4 version, and the most recent interview by Ryan Smith, game director, with The Washington Post, may have explained why the past generation have been left out.

According to him, certain gameplay mechanics were only possible thanks to the console’s processing power. Because of this, exploration will be on another level in the sequel:

As a player you can increase your speed, you can use the wings and wind tunnels to go even faster, and that helps enable things like crossing the river into the new neighborhoods we build. All of those things are part of the PS5 experience.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 also has a very interesting mechanic that lets you change Spider-Man instantly. On PS4, this could take a few seconds.

Bryan Intihar, creative director of the game, added that it will use technologies from the first games in the franchise and from Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart:

Making these big pieces that span multiple city blocks, interiors, exteriors – a lot of it builds on things that we started in the first Spider-Man, Miles, and more recently Ratchet. It’s the same engine and the same team working on all of this and applying those lessons.
