Get a Sneak Peek at Spider-Man 2 with 10-Minute Gameplay Trailer on PS5


Introduction: Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Gameplay Trailer Released

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is one of the most highly anticipated games of 2021. This game finally got a gameplay trailer during the PlayStation Showcase. Developer Insomniac Games has teased its lead character’s dark new abilities, including the Venom Symbiote.

Kraven the Hunter: The Main Villain

The trailer for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 opens with Kraven the Hunter prowling through the forests, looking for “an equal” — likely someone who could go toe-to-toe with his super serum-powered strength. The hunt spells bad news for the inhabitants of New York City, which includes our Spidey duo and their rogue’s gallery of villains, with Dr. Kurt Connors aka The Lizard appearing to be the target in the demo.

Gameplay Elements in Spider-Man 2

The gameplay is largely set across the East River in Queens, a newly playable and explorable borough that’s being introduced in Spider-Man 2. As mentioned before, Parker has some new black threads, all thanks to the Venom Symbiote binding itself to our hero and granting him some aggressive movesets. Instead of webs, the parasite extends and morphs itself to suit its host’s needs — tendrils that can plough down even the most rugged enemies with ease. True to the character, you can also hear his voice getting more enraged, highlighting the Symbiote’s mind-altering effect.

Miles Morales: The New Spiderman

We then switch over to Miles Morales via a simple press of a button, who is tasked with protecting The Lizard from the Hunters. Traversal largely remains the same, save for the new Web Wings that let you glide over long distances swiftly. The near-instant character switch is also worth noting here, showing the prowess of the PS5’s internal SSD that loads buildings, cars, and people without any noticeable jitters.

Upgrades for Symbiote and Morales’ Blue Bio-Electric Powers

Insomniac Games notes that both Symbiote and Morales’ newfound blue bioelectric powers can be upgraded via the skill tree. “Our heroes share technology and train together, too, so we also included a shared Skill Tree that offers parallel upgrades for both,” reads the PlayStation blog post.


The trailer for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 looks absolutely stunning, with gameplay that will satisfy both fans and newcomers alike. Giving players the ability to switch between Parker and Morales will add an extra level of immersion to the game, and the new abilities for Parker brought on by the Venom Symbiote will make for some truly spectacular moments. We can’t wait to see more and to take down Kraven the Hunter!
