Many of the shocks and easter eggs seen in the most recent gameplay trailer for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 were not known to gamers prior to its release. Though, with Venom’s confirmation in the teaser, it was surprising to see Peter take over the Symbiote and don the classic Black Spidey suit.

The 10-minute trailer opens with Kraven The Hunter plotting to conquer New York by murdering its defenders, the Spider-Men. Six months later, players will take on the role of Symbiote Spider-Man, an angry vigilante who is ruthlessly destroying foes, robots, and on the search for The Lizard, who is terrorizing New York.

After that, players take control of Miles Morales, who, with the assistance of his pal Ganke, sets out to find The Lizard, setting in motion a thrilling adventure consisting of sneaking about New York and taking out bad men in a warehouse. Peter, in the meantime, has swung by to aid Miles, only to stun him with his sudden, enraged demeanor.

The preview concludes with Miles and Peter rescuing bystanders from a crashed helicopter and Doc Connor’s Lizard becoming lost in the sewers. However, just before it concludes, Peter reveals to Miles that he plans to go after Connors and that he is filled with hatred for The Lizard.

The introduction of the new Symbiote Suit and the player’s ability to use both the L1 and R1 buttons for various tasks was the highlight of the gameplay reveal. The new abilities Peter has at his disposal deliver on the promise of an improved gaming experience for gamers, whether they be used for swinging from the walls or smashing enemies with the black webs.
