Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is adding New Game+ soon after launch

Insomniac Games has confirmed that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will get a New Game+ mode, alongside other features, in an update sometime after launch.

Marvel's Spider-Man 2

The wall-crawler’s new adventure has just been released, but Insomniac Games is already planning the near future of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, the new exclusive title for PS5. The creators of Spyro The Dragon and Ratchet and Clank have also confirmed that they will launch two of the features most requested by the community: New Game Plus mode and the ability to repeat missions. When? Sooner than one would expect, before the end of the year.

The confirmation has come from the hand of James Stevenson, communications director of the studio. He was asked on the social network X – formerly known as Twitter – if the game would receive these features at launch. “No, we are working on an update for those features but they won’t be in Day 1,” he said, and then added: “Should be before end of year.”

“A perfect sequel”

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 has begun its journey by climbing fast to the heights of Metacritic. In the MeriStation review we say that it is “the perfect sequel” because although it does not reinvent everything, it improves on what its predecessors built and is “a textbook example of more, better”. For all these reasons, our colleague David Arroyo has given it an outstanding grade, a 9.2/10:

“You will not be able to separate yourself from the controller once you have passed the first third, in which you still lose a few hours presenting mechanics. But even its open world has taken a step forward,” he wrote in the analysis. Of course, everything seems to indicate that the fight for GOTY is going to be close, although this year The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and Baldur’s Gate 3 have hit the table, rated 10/10 on MeriStation.

After Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, the standalone expansion of the original, Insomniac Games decided to shelf development on PS4, so the game is only available on Sony’s next-generation machine.
