In Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, we’ll be playing as Peter Parker and Miles Morales throughout the adventure. The two superheroes have a lot in common but, as we saw in a recent gameplay demonstration, they also have unique powers and abilities. The demo showed how fast switching between characters would be, and while it was a scripted event in a story mission, the open world would let us chop and change as we saw fit.
talked to Eurogamer, creative director Brian Intihar detailed how character swaps work in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 . “When you’re playing the main story, we control when you switch between Pete and Miles… it’s done in service of the story when we” He’s redoing the switches, definitely. ,” he says. “You’ll be able to freely switch between them with a simple button press — in the open world.”
So, when you’re in the middle of a main mission, there will be set moments when the controls switch between Peter and Miles, but if you’re just free-roaming around town, you can switch whenever you want. Can swap spies. And it looks like there will be reasons to do so: “We’ve got stuff built around Peter, we’ve got stuff built around Miles and we’ve got stuff where you can play either,” Intihar said. says, adding that the game also includes unique and shared skill trees for the two characters.
He adds that rapid character swapping in the open world is “really, really cool”, and something they “wouldn’t have explored before”. This probably boils down to the fact that this is the first Spider-Man title that is exclusive to the PS5, with no PS4 version limited.
