Spider-Man 2 Should Get New Game Plus Sometime This Year, But Not At Launch

The PS5 exclusive will also receive mission replay functionality in a future patch.


Even ahead of its launch, people were already curious about New Game Plus in Marvel's Spider-Man 2. It turns out, Spider-Man 2's New Game Plus won't be available at launch, but it is on the way and may arrive before the year of 2023.

Spotted by VGC, Insomniac community director James Stevenson confirmed on Twitter/X that New Game Plus--as well as mission replay--are being worked on by the developer. The update won't be available when Spider-Man 2 comes out tomorrow, October 20, but "should be before end of year," Stevenson posted. A person also questioned why changing the time of day and weather aren't available at launch, with Stevenson stating, "game dev isn't simple, nor easy."

Now Playing: Marvel's Spider-Man 2 Video Review

One prominent feature that will be there tomorrow for Spider-Man 2 is the remarkably quick fast travel. Players can jump from one part of New York City to another in mere seconds, with Peter Parker or Mile Morales almost instantly web-slinging around.

Earlier this week, a new Spider-Man 2 launch trailer wondered "what the hell is going on with Pete"? The video also showcased some of the villains that appear in the PS5 exclusive, like The Lizard, Sandman, and Venom.

GameSpot's Spider-Man 2 review calls it "a great game and one well worth seeing all the way through from its bombastic beginning to its emotional end."
