Today Sony Interactive Entertainment and Insomniac games had plenty of news to share with fans eagerly awaiting Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.
First of all, we get a story trailer featuring the first look at Venom. Incidentally, we also hear from the game’s Narrative Director Jon Paquette, who commented on an official post on the PlayStation Blog.
At the beginning of our story, our Spider-Men are at the top of their game,” said Paquette. “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.
You can watch the trailer below.
Yet, that’s not all, as we also get to see an official limited edition PS5 bundle alongside its DualSense controller.
A definitely welcome detail is that you can purchase the controller and the covers for the PS5 separately, so if you already have a PS5, you don’t need to buy the whole thing, which has always been a pretty annoying issue for previous consoles and this kind of limited editions.
Pre-orders will start on July 28 and fans in the US, UK, France, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Austria, and Portugal can make the purchase on the PlayStation Direct store.
It’s worth mentioning that the PS5 in the bundle is a digital edition, so you also get a voucher for the download of the game. It won’t be a physical disc.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 releases on October 20, exclusively for PS5. If you’d like to see more, you can also check out a previous trailer from the latest PlayStation Showcase. A prequel comic has been released a while ago.
