If there is one Sony 1st-party studio that must be commended for working the hardest to provide outstanding PlayStation experiences, it has to be Insomniac Games. The PS5 has been held up by two amazing games in the form of the action-platformer Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart and a spinoff game starring one of the best Spidey variants, Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Before those two games hit the scene, Insomniac crafted the greatest web crawler simulator to date with the PS4 exclusive (and now remastered for PS5 and PC), Marvel's Spider-Man. The "amazing" adventures of Peter Parker's alter-ego blew everyone's mind thanks to an incredible story, slick web-swinging mechanics, exceptional combat, and an open world patterned after one of the biggest cities in the world. Now we're finally due to that game's sequel, which will focus on Peter and Miles as they contend with a new set of supervillains in an expanded version of NYC. Join us as we break down every facet of Marvel's Spider-Man 2 on PS5.

Marvel's Spider-Man 2 on PS5 is prepped for launch on October 20, 2023. This highly anticipated PS5 exclusive will come in four different editions - those are Standard, Launch, Digital Deluxe, and Collector's Editions. The physical Standard Edition doesn't come with any pre-order bonuses, but the Launch Edition does - that edition of the game comes with early unlocks of the Arachknight Suit for Peter & three color variants, the Shadow Spider Suit for Miles & three color variants, the "Web Grabber" gadget, and an additional three skill points.

The Digital Deluxe Edition grants players access to everything that comes with the Launch Edition, bonus photo mode items, an extra two skill points, and 10 bonus suits (five for Peter and five for Miles). Those suits are:

  • Tactical Suit (Peter)
  • Aurantia Suit (Peter)
  • 25th Century Suit (Peter)
  • Stone Monkey Suit (Peter)
  • Apunkalyptic Suit (Peter)
  • Agimat Suit (Miles)
  • Red Spectre Suit (Miles)
  • Encoded Suit (Miles)
  • Biomechanical Suit (Miles)
  • Tokusatsu Suit (Miles)

And finally, the physical Collector's Edition of Marvel's Spider-Man 2 comes with a 19-inch statue depicting Peter and Miles taking the fight to Venom and an exclusive steelbook case. It's also worth noting that everything that's included with the Digital Deluxe Edition will come with the Collector's Edition (that means a physical version of the game won't come with it).

Since Marvel's Spider-Man 2 is a major 1st-party Sony PlayStation release, it should come as no surprise that a special console bundle, controller, and console covers have been made to commemorate its impending launch. There's a Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Limited Edition PS5 Console Bundle that comes with the Limited Edition DualSense Controller and a Limited Edition Console Cover. You can obtain the controller plus the console covers separately for both versions of the PS5 console.
