Spider-Man 2 is Getting New Game Plus, More Suits Soon

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is finally adding its long-awaited New Game Plus mode soon, along with additional costumes and accessibility features. Insomniac finally released Spider-Man 2 on the PlayStation 5 last October to much critical and commercial success, with the game quickly becoming one of the developer's highest-selling titles of all time. As both Peter Parker and Miles Morales, players are tasked with defending New York City from a multitude of classic comic book villains, including Kraven the Hunter and a reimagined version of Venom.

While Spider-Man 2 is considered by many to be an excellent game and a worthy follow-up to Insomniac’s previous Marvel titles, there were some aspects that players felt less than thrilled about. For example, the current lack of any New Game Plus or the ability to replay story chapters after they are beaten the first time means that players aren’t left with much to do after clearing Spider-Man 2’s primary campaign and many side quests. Insomniac has addressed this shortcoming, and promised eager fans that New Game Plus will be added to Spider-Man 2 sometime this year.

Players now have a release date for Spider-Man 2’s massive new update, which will introduce New Game Plus and a host of other exciting bonuses and features that fans have been requesting for months. In a new post on the PlayStation Blog, Insomniac Community Director James Stevenson announced that Spider-Man 2 version 1.002 will launch on March 7. The included Spider-Man 2 New Game Plus feature will allow players to restart the game on a higher difficulty with all their unlocked suits and abilities carried over. There will also be new things to unlock like Ultimate Levels and Golden Gadget styles.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Version 1.002 Features
New Game+
Audio Descriptions and Screen Reader
Cinematic Captions and High Contrast Outlines
Change time of day

Replay missions
New Photo Mode options like Action Figure mode and stickers

New Game Plus isn’t the only new feature coming to Spider-Man 2, as players who start New Game Plus’s Ultimate Levels will unlock new alternate suits for Peter and Miles based on the ones they wore to the annual Hellfire Gala in the comics. Peter sports the snazzy black-and-red costume designed by Russell Dauterman, while Miles will gain his stylish look from Bernard Chang’s Hellfire Gala variant cover for Miles Morales: Spider-Man #8. The Spider-heroes are also getting some impressive original outfits as part of the Fly N’ Fresh Suit Pack, which will be available to purchase with funds benefiting Gameheads on March 7.

Showing off these new looks will be easier than ever after the next Spider-Man 2 update, which will also add new Photo Mode options like Action Figure mode and additional stickers along with the ability to change the time of day in the game’s open world. Finally, Spider-Man 2 will increase its accessibility options with Audio Descriptions and Screen Reader for visually impaired users, as well as Cinematic Captions and High Contrast Outlines. All of these features will be added to Spider-Man 2 on March 7.
