Anyone anticipating the release of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 next year will surely be acquainted with its two playable protagonists: Peter Parker and Miles Morales, Insomniac Games’ two established Spider-Men. However, no details have been shared on how this will be addressed in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2the moment-to-moment gameplay between the two characters.
Because it won’t be released until an undisclosed date next year, everyone can estimate how it will be approached. Other rumors and speculation have wondered how Venom will affect Marvel’s Spider-Man 2gameplay, and whether any particular symbiote-inspired suits will be introduced. Now, a leaked rumour, if true, could offer more information on how Peter and Miles will be interchangeable, as well as the potential for a third playable character.
Recently, Redditor u/Command-Grab shared an anonymous post suggesting that an internal email had been exposed by Insomniac. The leaker states that Miles and Peter will only be interchangeable during free roam, with scripted missions reserved for each character. Interestingly, however, the anonymous leaker shared that there’s “a third character who gets mixed up in all of this but can’t move freely.” This character is said to have “a different playstyle that directly kills people and uses smoke, projectiles, and a type of organic or artificial tentacles.”
Information from the anonymous leak points to Venom or a “Peter black suit”, although it also suggests that an earlier leak claimed it could be Yuri Watanabe’s Wraith. Spider-Man: Web of Shadows‘Black Suit Spider-Man features aggressive combat with spin strikes and the ability to switch between red and black suit and symbiote at will. However, the alleged leak details that this “third playable character” would not be available in free-roam outside of dedicated missions.
Due to how fun traversing the open world could be with Insomniac’s take on the symbiote, it would be unfortunate to hear if it was only available in scripted levels instead. But if this leak is correct, then maybe that’s what fans can expect.
The “smoke” detail is interesting because smoke is not a traditional symbiote characteristic. If Insomniac really intends to innovate on the alien substance and the effects it has on its hosts, the smoke could be a byproduct of some sort of escape mechanism where the symbiote can instantly transmit on predetermined distances as opposed to somersaulting or regular dodging.
In the meantime, until any information is confirmed, all alleged leaks should be taken lightly. Many fans would surely be happy with the idea of a gameplay adaptation with the symbiote that could impact combat and traversal, whether as Venom himself or as Spider-Man in costume. black, but only time will tell if this becomes a reality in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.
marvel’s Spiderman 2 is currently slated for release in 2023 on PS5.
