Queens and Brooklyn have been added to the map in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.
Despite the fact that we have been able to see Spider-Man in all kinds of situations and places, the reality is that this superhero has always been related in most of its versions to New York City, while in other universes such as the recently shown Indian Spider-ManPavitr Prabhakar, seen in the Across the Spider-verse tape, we know Mumbattan, which is a fusion between Mumbai (Bombay in Spanish) and Manhattan.
Be that as it may, in the next video game of the wall-crawler, in which it must be added that a series of clues could have revealed the identity of Venom in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, it has been confirmed that the map will once again be New York, which has brought a series of criticisms because many think that it will be the same game again. However, as Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has shown, this does not always mean that it is something negative, to which is added the fact that bringing New York back may mean big improvements.
Brooklyn and Queens could show a different identity of their own than Manhattan
According to the words of the creative director of the title, Bryan Intihar, it has been confirmed that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 map will be twice as big of the one seen in the previous title, while in this we can see how the city we know is added queens and brooklynwhat will come from the hand of major visual changes, since these two neighborhoods have their own style different from Manhattan, which means that we can see changes in the gameplay. To give an example, in Ultimate Spider-Man the low buildings made us use a different type of web to move
On the other hand, the fact that the map is larger implies that the swing should be faster to be able to navigate it more efficiently, while in the absence of vehicles as in other open world games, Peter and Miles might have new abilities to boost them, this being something that in previous games has been limited to closed spaces and grids, but now they could take better advantage of it outside.
Also, as far as gameplay is concerned, we could see variants of the different gangs and enemies in each districtthus achieving that we have a greater diversity and that it is not all so repetitive, which could also be extended to present villains and bosses of all kinds. There will be what the titles will offer, but until then remember that, after having presented clues that suggest that there would be possible allies of Peter and Miles, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will launch on October 20 exclusively for PlayStation 5.
