Marvel's Spider-Man 2 - PlayStation Showcase 2021 Trailer | PS5
By - Neyo708
Venom. I'm in
Symbiote suit with special abilities pleeease
If I can switch between Miles and Peter ala GTAV then I'm all in already
Or be able to switch mid fight and call in assists like Arkham Knight
If they employ Arkham Knight style duo takedowns it’s going to be insane
They already have duo finishers. Miles can do them with >!Tinkerer!< and >!Prowler!< and my memory is a bit hazy but I think Peter had them with Silver Sable.
That or a co-op mode
Co-op sounds like a brilliant next step
They said “the next single player adventure” or something along those lines
I was in way before that haha.
Like balllllllzzzzz deeeep. All time favorite comic/superhero character.
2023 is a while off but man did it get my hyped
Yeah it seems far away but makes sense. I wouldn't have been surprised if they said 2022 but got delayed to 2023. Now, if they were to delay the 2023 to 2024, then I may be crushed a lil.
For anyone that doesn’t know, that was Kraven the Hunter talking. My body is ready.
I was hoping he'd come out of the shadows, looking beast af. But I mean, Venom of course deserves the closing line
I think they set it up brilliantly to be Kraven coming out of the shadows only for them to drop Venom on us
For some reason my brain immediately went to "THEY GAVE KRAVEN THE SYMBIOTE?!? Spider-Boys are *fucked*!"
But then my brain realized how trailers work 🤷🏻♂️
Yup and it's gonna be fucking glorious.
I was super confused when the camera was in the dark alley for what felt like an eternity. "c'mon, just show Kraven already, what's with the suspense? as if it's not already completely obvious." then Venom voice. so fucking hype.
I didn’t even need Venom; as soon as I heard Kraven, they had me hook, line, and sinker.
It's gonna be *wild*
yeah same I was screaming and jittering already thinking it was Kraven and to be smacked with Venom. This game is making me cream my pants already. Guess I finally gotta buy a PS5 for this, Wolverine, Ragnarok and KOTOR Remake. What a fucking showcase this was
They had me at Insomniac
I'm kinda surprised we haven't seen Kraven in a big picture adaptation yet. He's one of the all time best Spider-Man villains, and his storylines are so dark.
I know there's something in development, but still, I'm surprised it's taken so long.
I’m guessing Kraven is going to use the task master spawning mechanic rather than being a less infuriating screwball
How do you know that?
Russian guy talking about searching for someone who can beat him? Yeah, that's Kraven.
I was also pretty sure it was him and was expecting him to be the one to come out of the shadows. Last game was the Sinister 6 and this one it’s looking to be Kraven/Venom and MAYBE Green Goblin (I can hope).
I think only Venom and Kraven as the main villains for this one, and something will happen with >!Harry as Venom causing Norman to become Gobbie!<, which will tease the third game.
Don’t forget the Lizard 🦎
Based on the post credits scene of the first one I could see that happening!
Green Goblin is obviously the headliner of the third game. If they do a trilogy, it makes sense to have Doc Ock, Venom and Green Goblin with each their own game. They are the 3 biggest Spidey villains
Yeah and I really like the idea of this being a trilogy about Norman’s slow descent into madness and Pete’s arch-nemesis. Show him growing crazier throughout the second game and then tease Goblin at the end, setting him up for the third game. I could really see it going like this.
I really want them to have some kind of personal connection, maybe working on a cure for Harry together or something, not unlike the first one with Octavius
Yeah, I feel like they have to include Gobby after teasing his tech so much in the first game.
pretty obvious with the accent and the "hunter apex predator" speech going on
Because he's saying Kraven shit in a Russian accent. If it isn't Kraven, I'll eat my hat.
Literally as soon as he opened his mouth it was obvious it was it him, at least to anybody who’s familiar with his character in the comics or other games
Russian accent and his whole personality is wanting to kill Spider-Man to prove that he's a great hunter.
Context clues make it pretty obvious, the accent and dialogue mean it's him
accent (as well as character backstory, if my memory from animated series serves me right)
Insomniac somehow simultaneously never stops working and never crunches. It's some paradox that the industry needs to solve.
Unlimited cocaine as an employment perk.
Unlimited Cocaine Works
Nah, they have access to Gate of Babylon and use it to spit out more people.
"WORK on this sick game dudes and dudetts or you'll go back straight to the depths of hades"
I mean, the name of their company is Insomniac... 💁
Good management, company structure and probably a good work culture. Workers are excited to work, never burnt out, and they have good funding due to them being consistently great. They’re not my favorite company in terms of IPs but the way they execute their ideas successfully while constantly putting out quality stuff is admirable.
I imagine workers are paid well, have enough staff on hand to get the job done, and they are proud of the product they produce. Certainly the formula to happy culture.
It’s healthy goal oriented work. Finish one project - have some time off, onto the next one. Goals are in sight and achievable because they don’t try to promise too much and have to cut tons of shit probably. CDPR needs to take a look at their company structure and copy it. They have probably as much resources they’re just way more poorly run. Realistic expectations and schedule = less stressed out workers and more productivity.
Good cocaine too
Lol I know y’all are joking but cocaine is not a productive work substance. Adderall or vyvanse are way more efficient and effective at getting shit done.
Ofc we're joking. I hope the devs don't actually abuse drugs to get work done
A lot of industry people use adderall. Tons of my friends in tech still use it, wouldn’t be surprised if game devs did too.
They weren't always that way. The early Ratchet and Clank games had a lot of crunch and somewhat chaotic development in general.
Well, they don’t sleep.
Blog post also states that Venom is voiced by fucking Tony Todd.
For those who dont know its the Candy-Man (google it)
I notice venom said “yes, we will” so who was the person saying they want to experience defeat ?
It sounded like Kraven
It's Kraven. They're doing Kraven's Last Hunt.
AAAAAAAAAA I CAN'T WAIT FOR 2023
That makes a lot of sense. Oh man. This is going to be so sick.
I've been playing their stuff since the first *Spyro the Dragon* and I've never seen them be quite this productive. I'm pretty hyped.
Well, the Spyro trilogy all came in 1 year after each other.
Yes but video game development is WAY more complicated, expensive, and time consuming than it was 20+ years ago. For them to be churning out 1-2 full blown AAA games a year when every other studio is constantly crunching and delaying their single game, it's just insane
Of course, but they also have way more employees and way way more money behind them. Their productivity should be admired, but they’ve always been insanely productive.
If they remade resistance series >>>>
Hell I'd take just a remastered *Resistance* trilogy. Those were the first FPS games I ever actually liked.
I honestly hate FPS games the majority of the time, but the story line of Resistance was just so good I couldn't put the game down.
A new Killzone and Resistance would be nice
Well, Killzone will have to be remade by Guerilla Games (Horizon developers) or another studio like Bluepoint.
Yeah they're insane, when they showed that it was Wolverine I thought for sure there would be no way Spider-Man 2 would be shown. Hopefully they keep branching out to other Marvel properties cause a Daredevil game from them would be amazing
Been saying this since Spider-Man first came out. An Insomniac made Daredevil game would be incredible.
Wouldn’t it just be a black screen…?
I've thought about this idea a lot, and I think the best way to do it is design "sound waves" that spread from everything that Daredevil would hear and allow you to see the area around them. Footsteps, heartbeats, as well as impacts on different surfaces. It would allow him to see enemies and give a vague idea of surroundings, and then when the action picks up and it gets loud, you can see everything. You could also toss the baton off objects to cause distractions or use loud sounds as stun moves, and it would have the added effect of improved visibility. It wouldn't mess up the playing experience all that much, but would still represent the fact that you're playing as a blind dude.
I think the best way to do it is give it a proper impressionistic painting look, like the way the series described it. Becoming sharper in waves of sound and whatnot.
Oh that's interesting too! Colours and vague shapes that solidify when they make noise. That's a hell of a challenge for an art team. Either way, all I can think about is how cool it would be to play 2/3rds of the game that way, having to think about using sound to see anything, and then you step outside and it's raining. How fucking awesome would that moment be.
I figured it was spiderman with wolverine playing a part in the story or something
They make quality games but also their games are not super long. 10 - 12 hours or so, that helps for sure.
I like having short games. As a JRPG gamer I need something tight to follow my 100+ hour slogs.
I feel ya man. Tales of arise is coming out and thats probably another 70 hours…
Ratchet & Clank, yes, but Spider-Man was considerably longer than that. Miles Morales was too, if you do everything in it.
Ratchet and clank was the perfect length to not overstay it's welcome IMO.
I thought the pacing was a little odd, probably because I’d just recently finished replaying the ps2 trilogy. It felt like each planet maybe a little too long, but that there were two few planets. Maybe this is controversial, since Rift Apart easily has the best gunplay in the series yet, but I also would have liked more variety in the game.
It would have been nice to have more varied arena challenges, more optional paths, another/a better designed collectathon planet (maybe like the sewer in R&C 3), more mini games, and bringing back space missions.
Overall, though, it did feel like a full game and was probably the perfect length for the type of game it was.
I did plat miles morales, only took me 11 hours I think. But the first spider man was indeed longer.
It really makes you feel like Spider-Man 2
Really makes you feel like 2 Spider-Men
Add in Gwen in this one so the next one will have 3. Add a Spiderperson per entry so the number matches the number of Spiders.
The number of Spider-People directly correlates with the title. Spider-Man was just Peter, Spider-Man 2 will be Peter and Miles with Venom as the villain, Spider-Man 3 will be Peter, Miles, and Venom, Spider-Man 4 will add Gwen,.........
It really makes you feel like Spider-Man: Miles Morales
The exaggerated Spider of a Man 2
You made it 37 seconds.
INSOMNIAC CALM THE FUCK DOWN
Miles Morales, Spider-Man Remastered and Ratchet and Clank all released within 8 months of each other, now Spider-Man 2 AND Wolverine UP NEXT?!?! INSOMINIAC ARE GOATED
Insomniac has been one of the greatest developers since the PS1
The Spyro trilogy was one of the best franchises on the PS1 then Ratchet and Clank on PS2 solidified their status
Yeah they’re my favorite developer next to FromSoftware, their games are just pure fun
Wolverine is going to be fucking insane, I can't wait 😲
If it's anything like X-Men origins Wolverine, I will fucking die. That game was goated.
One of the best movie tie in games ever made
And it was way better than the movie!
Would IG go for the gore? Severed limbs and all? I hope they don’t pull any punches and rate it M.
This could easily sky rocket to the best super hero adapted game if executed right, and with IGs track record it could easily accomplish that.
I hope it’s M-rated
Hopefully it takes the Logan route and they’re shooting for an M rating
That short trailer was pretty bloodied up. Insomniac has done a lot of softer superhero stuff with the two previous Spider-Man titles and Ratchet & Clank; I’m sure they’re looking forward to doing something a bit bloodier.
I’d be disappointed if a full-on Wolverine game wasn’t gory tbh, his entire power set is “knives for hands and won’t die from getting stabbed”
I mean they have experience with rated M games though. Resistance ring a bell?
And naughty dog did 0 Mrated games before the last of us part one and it has some of the best gore I’ve seen to this day
They did Sunset overdrive which had adult humor
Resistance was exceptionally violent and they did that back in 2006-2011 so I think it’s a strong possibility.
Where's Wolverine? I can't watch and don't see anything about a Wolverine game.
Oh shiiiit. Thanks 👍
Was the guy sitting at the bar, was very short, more of a tease
I wouldn't insult Logan's height, if I were you...
Yeah, do that and he'll cut you down to size
There was just a very short teaser for it. Also Insomniac. There wasn’t a date but based on the kind of trailer I’d guess it’s coming after spider-man 2
Insomniac are crushing the superhero genre
Well. No one else is.
For real. Avengers? Meh, tons of MTX and completely turns me off of the game. Not spending $15 for a goddamn SUIT, or $10 for a pass that I can't unlock during a week I have to play and grind, but instead takes me months.
Guardians of the Galaxy? More like Star Lord ft. the rest of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Can't play as them, then there's no point. Combo moves, sure, but it's lame to have a team game and them not have multiple playable heroes.
Can't speak for the DC side of things yet, but man, after Spider-Man for PS4 (Remastered on PS5 is worth the cost of a PS5 alone, IMO) and Miles Morales, I cannot WAIT for Spider-Man 2 and Wolverine.
Totally hitting the genre out of the park. If only they did the Avengers game in the style of Spider-Man instead of that live service bullshit Crystal Dynamics did.
I was completely uninterested in superhero games until Spider-Man 2018.
I got my PS5 last month and I've been binging Miles Morales and SM Remastered pretty hard.
Bruh Insomniac leave something for the other devs
At this point Insomniac is working on GTA 6
Insomniac is GTA 6
Insomniac is the friends we made along the way
**Tony Todd is voicing Venom.** Fuck yeah!!!!!! If anyone doesn’t know, he’s the original Candyman. Watch the movie or this [clip](https://youtu.be/qOt3D01rCTY) to understand just how damn good his voice his. He is the perfect Venom.
Whoa. Perfect for the part.
Do the people at insomniac sleep at this point lmao 🤣
No. It's in the name of the company!
Lol one of the perks of the job must be free cocaine
Only one question for Insomniac.
Big money is in play now, with the unbelievably succesful games of Spiderman-remastered, Ratchet & Clank and Miles Morales…Marvel AND Sony have thrown BIG money to continue making games
I think their engine for Spiderman is still paying off. Miles was relying on lots of assets and mechanics from previous game and the upgrades helped in making the Remastered version, which in turn helped in Ray Tracing and streaming tech for Rift Apart. I won't be surprised if Wolverine is in same engine and maybe even a New York esque city.
Yup. That’s good technical direction, right there.
Ray tracing has got to be making the games easier to make. Not having to bake in the lighting, just being able to turn the rt on and let the game dynamically light itself.
it’s in the name… insomniac.
they never sleep so marvel knows that they can handle it.
Insomniac working overtime
No sleep whatsoever!
they should change their names from insomniac to...oh wait
Me reacting: YESSSSSS YESSSSSSSSS oooooh 2023? fuck
I mean... Insomniac deserves a break from pushing out games. 2022 will be the first time in a minute without a release from them.
Assuming they don’t release anything in 2022, it will be the first time since 2017. Since 1998 the only years where they haven’t released a game were 2001, 2010, and 2017.
*tin foil hat* 9 years between 2001 and 2010, 7 years between 2010 and 2017… with 5 years between 2017 and 2022, makes sense that 2022 would be the year of no Insomniac games /s
Fucking mad lads.
Remember the first game was revealed back in 2016 and released in 2018. If we waited then we can wait now!
You realize its about to be 2022 right lol.
How does that make it any better lol
Basically a year away from a triple A game isnt too bad of a window. Especially with how quick insomniac has been pushing stuff out.
Could be mid or late 2023 though.
it will probably be mid or late 2023
I’m fully expecting late 2023. I will be happy if it isn’t though.
Wolverine! Did I dream that?!
I really hope this game has segments in which we can play as Venom.
I could see miles getting infected by the symbiote. Since he's young and less experienced, or maybe Peter gets it again and you have to fight him as miles. Either way one spiderman is fighting the other with the symbiote suit.
Definitely think Peter’s gonna get it and we’ll eventually fight him as Miles
Maybe we can pick who we fight as? So many options.
I'd like to stick to the regular spider-men and get a Miles Morales style semi-sequel where you play as Venom only. Now that would be sick.
Holy shit that would be incredible
Get an achievement for eating everyone in New York lol
That was definitely Kraven talking as well - so we got Venom and Kraven as villains. Pretty cool. I hope this story focuses on Peter Parker’s story tho
Venom was responding to Kravens request though, he could be playable
Man Insomniac is busy
Wolverine and this. Not to be ungrateful - but a Iron Man game with free roam/big number of suits would be sick too.
Just give Insomniac the full marvel licence at this point.
Wouldn't be surprised if they pull off 9+ reviews with Wolverine and Spider-Man 2. Sony/Marvel/Disney might push for more games from Insomniac
To be fair giving them Wolverine speaks to that based on the success of Spiderman and MM. Keep it coming!
Insomniac were initially asked which hero they wanted to do and picked Spider-Man. I assume they were given the same option this time.
Spider-Man benefits most from a video game with his unique web slinging, traversing as Spider-Man is so fun. I’m real excited to see what they do with Wolverine. I hope it’s also open world with a motorcycle like days gone
After playing Control, I think Remedy Entertainment seem like a better fit for Doctor Strange.
Yeah that would be cool, too. Now that I think about it, a Dr Strange game will likely benefit from a dark/mysterious/uneasy tone of Control. Add in the portal power and it's a 10/10 buy from me.
I hope this game is a ps5 exclusives. Perhaps seamless character transitions.
[Official blog post](https://blog.playstation.com/2021/09/09/marvels-spider-man-2-and-marvels-wolverine-revealed/) indeed confirms it is a Playstation 5 exclusive.
it has to be. at that points it's gonna be roughly 3 years after console release. Even if console shortages still happen, they will have sold enough consoles to justify exclusivity IMO.
>seamless character transitions
You mean like GTAV Remastered Remastered?
I was thinking closer to GTAV Remastered Remastered Remastered
Insomniac confirmed that both are ps5 exclusives.
> We're ecstatic to announce Marvel's Spider-Man 2 and Marvel's Wolverine are coming exclusively to PlayStation 5. Stayed tuned for more information!
Spider-Man and Wolverine games
2 of my favorite superheros are getting games soon
This is gonna be so good omg
I think they have just really fucking nailed the tone and atmosphere of what makes Spider-Man such a phenomenal franchise. This was probably my favorite trailer of the showcase.
I was sold with Kraven’s monologue and that beautiful, ominous soundtrack. The shots were nothing to scoff at. Just amazing. Then, Venom speaks…goosebumps.
This marketing team is nuts.
They really don't fucking miss, do they?
Oh man. Inject Kraven right into my veins.
Insomniac GO TO SLEEP PLS WTF HOWWWW
Bro this literally came out of nowhere, nobody expected this after the Wolverine announcement!
Insomniac acquisition by PlayStation was fucking genius
Insomniac is on fire!!!
Daredevil game please insomniac.
Yes please this
Tony Todd, god of horror voices, is voicing Venom. Glorious.
Im happy that new spiderman is comming out but Im angry that they baited me with the electricity stuff into thinking its new/remake infamous game
After the Wolverine trailer, I thought that meant we weren't getting Spider-Man 2 for a long time, then boom, I was proven wrong.
Ps5 lineup is insane right now. Ao far they have 2022 and 2023 locked
Insomniac are absolutely fucking unstoppable
If these games both deliver (which I’m sure they will). Insomniac will be the best developer in the game right now by a long shot, surpassing naughty dog
The environments look so good. The piled leaves and ray-traced reflections in the puddles really stand out.
I hope they got rid of the computer puzzles in this game. Those always brought the experience to a grinding halt before they added the skip button to them.
I nutted. I’m so fucking excited.
