Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Teases Promising Performance & Reveals New Screenshots

Insomniac Games and Sony have unveiled new screenshots and gameplay details for the former’s upcoming superhero action-adventure Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. Firstly, while both Peter Parker and Miles Morales are playable and “share a chunk of side activities, Spider gadgets, and base upgrade paths,” they “also have unique storylines, missions, and skills.”

Regarding the story, Harry Osborn is aware of Peter and Miles being Spider-Men, with them trying to find a cure for Harry’s illness. The “awkwardness of overlapping friendships and mutual connections” seems to be a focus this time around.

Additionally, an interview with IGN revealed new performance details. Mike Fitzgerald, Director of Core Technology, said the following:

“So whether you have VRR television, 120Hz TV, whether you like playing at 60fps or 30 or 40, if you have 120hz TV, we really get to tailor everything to best utilize that tech.”

Interestingly, no mode in this game has ray-tracing turned off, as there’s no need for it given the PlayStation 5’s capabilities and the title’s optimization.
