Will Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 have a New Game Plus mode? Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is quickly approaching its release date on PS5, given the popularity of New Game Plus (NG+) on the original game, it’s a relevant question. Here we break down everything you need to know.
The anticipation was finally addressed when James Stevenson, community director at Insomniac Games, confirmed through a tweet that Spider-Man 2 would indeed have a New Game Plus mode. There’s a catch, though: NG+ won’t be available immediately at launch.
“No, we’re working on an update for those features, but they won’t be on day 1.”
Players can take solace in the fact that Insomniac is actively working on an update to introduce this mode shortly after the game’s release.
When will New Game+ be added to Marvel’s Spider-Man 2?
As of this writing, there have yet to be any official announcements about when Spider-Man 2 will have the New Game Plus feature. The original Spider-Man added NG+ six weeks after launch. With this in mind, we should expect Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 on PS5 to have a new game added by December 2023.
New Game Plus is a beloved mode that allows players to replay the game from the beginning, equipped with all the skills, abilities, and outfits they unlocked in their previous playthrough. In the Spider-Man titles, this means tackling missions again as a fully-equipped Spidey, which greatly improves replay value.
The game is scheduled for release on October 20, 2023. Read our review and stay tuned for more Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 coverage and guides from Sirus Gaming!
