PlayStation Studios’ Insomniac Games took to X on February 7, 2024, to announce that their next big update for Spider-Man 2 will launch on March 7, 2024. The developers confirmed that the update will contain the much-awaited New Game+ mode for Spider-Man 2 along with new suits free of charge.
The devs initially stated that the New Game+ mode would drop around the end of 2023. However, the feature was later delayed when Insomniac Games shared that the mode and other requested features would “require more testing to ensure the quality is up to our standards.” Insomniac Games also noted that they were looking into adding features like changing the time of day, changing tendril colors, and the ability to replay completed missions. We are hopeful that the new update will contain everything we mentioned so far.
While fans of Spider-Man 2 are still holding their breath for a new DLC announcement, players will have access to new suits to try on when the update comes out. Insomniac Games has also announced that they are working on adding audio descriptions to Spider-Man 2, which is an accessibility feature for players who are blind or have low vision. Unfortunately, we are not yet sure when this will be added to the game.
Our Thoughts on Spider-Man 2’s New Update
The most prominent takeaway from Insomniac Games’ announcement is the addition of New Game+. For many, this feature was at the top of their wishlist as players have been eagerly waiting to jump back into the world of Spider-Man 2 with all their newly unlocked abilities and skills. Luckily, we now have a confirmed release date for when the feature will finally come to PS5. Apart from that, we are also looking forward to seeing what else Insomniac Games has in store for us. We are especially hyped for the addition of new suits as we love to see the various renditions of Spider-Man across different comic books and media.
