Marvel’s Spider-Man 2: With Great Power Comes… Way Faster Swinging
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is the first game in the series to release exclusively on the PlayStation 5. For Insomniac Games, being able to design the game to take full advantage of the console’s power allowed the team to push the graphics and gameplay even further.
“In Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, you’ll find yourself in a city that’s twice as big as before, and packed with far more detail and activity than in our past Spider-Man games,” explained Mike Fitzgerald, technical director. “Coney Island, in particular, is an area that teems with life in a way that would have been impossible on older hardware.”
What’s more, Fitzgerald shared that the PS5’s added power, coupled with some new movement abilities, will allow Spider-Man to swing through the city twice as fast as in previous games. “Combine that with the Slingshot Launch that lets the player go even faster and we’re exercising the low latency and exceptional bandwidth of the PS5 storage infrastructure in a way that’s crucial to the design of the game.”
