Spider-Man 2’s Map Will Be “Double The Size” Of The Original

Last month’s PlayStation Showcase gave us a much-needed extended look at Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, including Peter Parker’s new symbiote suit, Kraven and the Lizard, and a bunch of new traversal mechanics. However, the trailer didn’t tell us a lot, including how big the open world will be this time around. We were later told that the borough of Queens would be explorable, but now we’re told that Spider-Man 2’s map will be “double the size” of the original.

According to an article from The Washington Post detailing everything we can expect from Spider-Man 2, creative director Bryan Intihar reveals that the game will not only include Queens, but will also allow players to swing and slide around Brooklyn and some other boroughs . like the Manhattan area featured in the first game. That’s a lot of ground to cover, but Intihar explains that the smaller, less built-up areas of New York will be perfect for Peter and Miles to show off their wingsuit skills.

While the larger map was somewhat expected from a sequel that wanted to build on the good things of the previous two games, this news should at least silence all those angry that a Spider-Man game is set in New York again. . Yes, you read that right, a few days after the new trailer for the game aired, a very vocal minority were outraged at the location sightings included in the first game, claiming that Spider-Man 2 was “the same game” as the first. No one tells them that most of the Spider-Man media takes place in New York, or they might burst a blood vessel.

Another rather interesting bombshell that this article dropped was the fact that Insomniac apparently never had any plans to collaborate on Spider-Man 2. Before Insomniac shut down this theory last month, there were rumors of co-op because Peter Parker and Miles Morales starred. Instead, we now know that Spider-Man 2 is strictly single-player, and that the game will let you instantly switch between two characters outside of the main missions.

Unfortunately, the article didn’t include a release date, which we’re still waiting for Insomniac to reveal. However, Spider-Man 2 is still set to launch at some point in the fall, so it shouldn’t be too long before we get an official date to mark on our calendars.
