Sony and developer Insomniac Games have released the official story trailer for the upcoming sequel Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. The trailer “sets up our story in the game while also giving you your first full look at the monstrous Venom in Marvel’s New York.” Additionally, during San Diego Comic-Con 2023, the companies announced the limited edition PlayStation 5 bundle and DualSense wireless controller. Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will launch on October 20 for PlayStation 5.
Senior narrative director Jon Paquette to offer a deeper look to the game and trailer:
“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.”
