There’s a solid reason for why the upcoming sequel is carrying so much hype over its release. The first part that arrived in 2018 has swayed millions of players worldwide. So much so, that Marvel’s Spider-Man has become Sony’s golden IP, bringing in huge profit. Along with a 2020 spin-off, titled Miles Morales, the game has sold over 33 million copies so far across the globe.

Now that’s probably the biggest reason why the craze for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is on an all time high. Players are expecting it be on the same level as its predecessor in terms of offering amazing gameplay mechanics and features. And since it will be coming on the PlayStation 5, harnessing its power, the game is likely to be awesome to say the least.
