Brian Intihar, Game Director for Spider-Man 2 joined Geoff Keighley at the Summer Game Fest’s stage today, and revealed some exclusive information and showcased the official box art, and concept arts for the upcoming title.
The first concept art reveals first look at Venom in Spider-Man 2, who as per Intihar is NOT Eddie Brock. Miles Morales and Peter Parker can be seen together, taking on Venom. Intihar says players will find out more about Venom’s identity as they play the game.
Kraven the Hunter, who we saw earlier at the PlayStation Showcase was featured in the second concept art. Again, Miles and Peter are working together to take Kraven and his army down.
Here’s some more information about the game’s box art and the two concept art pieces:
In Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, players will get to experience Marvel’s New York as both Peter Parker and Miles Morales. As you saw in the PlayStation Showcase last month – the main storyline of the game will have you take control of both Spider-Men at different points of the campaign. In the open world, you will be able to switch nearly instantly between them as you explore Manhattan, Queens, and Brooklyn. Both Spider-Men have stories and missions in the world exclusive to each of them.
As you can see from our box art, Peter and Miles are both key protagonists in our story. The iconic red background returns, but darkness surrounds as fan-favorite villains like Venom, Lizard, and Kraven threaten them and Marvel’s New York. You will also notice that each character’s arm represents their new abilities: Peter with the symbiote, Miles with his evolved bioelectric Venom powers.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 also got a release date for October 20, 2023. The game will be coming exclusively to the PS5.
