The upcoming sequel to Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 may have a new location to explore, according to a recent tie-in prequel comic. Despite the game’s release scheduled for this autumn, there’s little information available on its content. However, fans can expect to play as both Peter Parker and Miles Morales and take on classic villains such as Venom and Kraven the Hunter, continuing from Insomniac’s previous Spider-Man games.
Marvel’s Spider-Man and Spider-Man: Miles Morales were praised for their writing and gameplay, particularly the latter’s open-world version of New York City. While the first Spider-Man game was limited to Manhattan Island, Spider-Man: Miles Morales added Harlem to the game’s scope. Fans hope Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will continue this trend by offering additional parts of the city to explore.
A Possible New Location for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2
The recent tie-in comic may have hinted at this, as it showed Peter and Mary Jane barbecuing in the backyard of Aunt May’s house in Forrest Hills, Queens. Speculation among fans is that Queens could be a new location in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. Peter’s Manhattan apartment was central to the previous game, but after being evicted, he expressed his desire to move back to his childhood home in Queens. It’s possible that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 could set part of its story in Queens, particularly as the teaser trailer released in 2021 had a brief reference to the neighbourhood.
Queens is a crucial element of the Spider-Man mythos and would provide players with additional landmarks and rooftops to explore. While this new location is still just speculation, it’s a promising sign for fans who want a bigger world to explore in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. As the game nears its expected release in fall 2023 for PS5, fans will be eagerly anticipating any concrete information about the game’s content.
