With Marvel’s Spider-Man 2’s launch on October 20, 2023, fans often speculate whether it’ll follow its predecessor’s footsteps and release on multiple platforms. While the first game launched on PS4, PS5, and Windows, Spider-Man 2 is a different story. This begs the question: can you play Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 on your PS4, or must you upgrade to a current generation console? Let’s find out.
Can You Play Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 on PlayStation 4?
No, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is not available on PS4. It will be released as a PlayStation 5 exclusive, with no plans to launch on any other platform. This exclusivity also means it will not be available on PC or Xbox for the foreseeable future.
In short, if you wish to play Marvel’s Spider-Man’s upcoming sequel on launch, you must upgrade to a PS5 or wait until news of its release on other consoles is announced.
Insomniac Games’ store page highlights Spider-Man 2’s PlayStation 5 exclusivity, with the PS5 being the only purchase option. You can pre-order the game before October 20 to ensure you get it on launch or buy it after its release date through the PlayStation store. Since it is a PS5 exclusive, you will not see it on other platforms like Steam or the Microsoft store.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is available in the PlayStation store, with the Standard Edition priced at $69.99 and the deluxe upgrade at $79.99. While Standard only provides the base game, upgrading to Deluxe provides unique suits for Peter and Piles, two skill points, and other bonuses if you pre-order the game.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will launch on October 20, 2023, as a PlayStation 5 exclusive. Make sure to check out whether Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is multiplayer if you’re debating bringing a friend into the action.
