Will Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 have a New Game Plus mode? Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is rapidly approaching its release date on PS5, given the popularity of New Game Plus (NG+) in the original game, it’s a relevant question to ask. Here, we break down everything you need to know.
Answer: Yes, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will have New Game Plus. The anticipation was finally addressed when James Stevenson, the community director at Insomniac Games, confirmed via a tweet that Spider-Man 2 would indeed feature a New Game Plus mode. However, there’s a catch: NG+ won’t be available immediately at launch.
“No – we’re working on an update for those features but they won’t be in Day 1”
Players can take solace in the fact that Insomniac is actively working on an update to introduce this mode soon after the game’s release.
When will New Game+ be added to Marvel’s Spider-Man 2?
At the time of writing, there have been no official announcements yet as to when Spider-Man 2 will have the New Game Plus feature. The original Spider-Man added NG+ six weeks post-launch. Considering that, we should expect Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 on PS5 to have new game plus added by December 2023.
New Game Plus is a beloved mode that allows players to replay the game from the start, equipped with all the abilities, skills, and suits they unlocked in their previous playthrough. In Spider-Man titles, this means tackling missions again as a fully-equipped Spidey, enhancing replay value immensely. Hence, a small number of players were understandably disappointed with the absence of NG+ at launch, much like the missing multiplayer feature.
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!
