The San Diego Comic-Con usually gets us used to important announcements about comics, movies and series. However, in its most recent editions we have also seen news related to video games. Precisely, the first big news since the Californian convention has to do with PlayStation. The Japanese brand announced a PS5 limited edition Spider-Man 2the most anticipated game on the platform for the second half of the year.
On PS5 of Spider-Man 2Obviously, it will have a design alluding to the expected video game. The left cover of the console divides its colors into black and red, trying to imitate how the goo that distinguishes Venom takes over the spider superhero. Remember that this will be the main villain of the title. The right cover, for its part, only shows the iconic emblem of the character.
The DualSense follows the same line, adopting the colors mentioned above. The square, triangle, circle and X buttons are painted white. It is important to mention that This command can also be obtained independently. That is, it will not be necessary to purchase the limited edition console to add it to your collection. And if you already have a PS5, Sony will also sell the covers of Spider-Man 2 separately.
Finally, you should know that the PS5 of Spider-Man 2, as well as accessories They can be reserved from next July 28, at least in the United States. We are waiting to know if the same date will be maintained in the rest of the territories.
“We are excited to introduce these stunning designs to our fans because of how they capture the look of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. The threat of Venom and the symbiote will be one of the most formidable challenges our two Spider-Mans (Peter Parker and Miles Morales) will face in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. That’s why we wanted to reflect the intensity of the symbiote and its ability to transform and bring it to the design of the PS5 and the DualSense wireless controller.”
New story trailer Spider-Man 2
Of course, Sony wasn’t going to come to Comic-Con 2023 just to unveil its limited-edition Spider-Man 2 PS5. Insomniac Games, the developer studio behind the game, shared a new trailer. This is intended to offer us a glimpse of the story starring Peter Parker and Miles Morales. Do not forget that it will be possible to control both characters.
However, both must face the most challenging challenge since they are superheroes: venge Venom. The symbiote, of course, looks terrifying. The developers of Insomniac Games, through the PlayStation Blog, mention that they have been inspired by the version of the villain present in the comics. However, they are also adding new ideas to give it their own twist.
“While the look of the character and many of his powers/abilities will be familiar to fans, this will be a unique Venom story that we’re excited for everyone to experience starting in October.”
Finally, in Insomniac they comment that their goal with the story of Spider-Man 2exclusive to the PS5, is to represent, through Venom, that dark side that we all have within us.
The best symbiote stories serve as an allegory: we all have darkness within us. But… What would happen if we let it control us? With the introduction of the symbiote into our franchise, our heroes are forced to battle darkness in all its forms. We wanted to see them change, both inside and out, and feel the effect it has on those around them. And when Venom takes control, they face the danger of losing themselves and their loved ones forever.”
Spider-Man 2 will be available on PS5 on October 20, 2023.
