Speculation among gamers arose in 2022 that Spider-Man 2 would feature both Peter Parker and Miles Morales as playable Spider-Men. The announcement trailer of Spider-Man 2 revealed in 2021 had already suggested that both of them would be playable protagonists. And now, this has been officially confirmed by Insomniac Games at 2023’s PlayStation Showcase.

Peter’s Symbiote Suit and its Abilities

As Spider-Man fans, we all have been undoubtedly waiting for this for quite some time now. Insomniac Games has confirmed the Symbiote’s presence in Spider-Man 2 after the previous Spider-Man games teased it.

Yes, the iconic black suit is in the game, too. Infected by the Symbiote, it is worn by none other than the OG Spidey Peter Parker. Aside from its cool looks, the suit also introduces new and amazing abilities in the game.

Combat Abilities 

  • It is safe to conclude that in the Symbiote suit, Peter will be much stronger and more aggressive.
  • There are plenty of new combat sequences and animations in Spider-Man 2, which will indicate how different Peter’s combat and abilities are while he’s in the black suit.
  • The use of stronger webs (created by the Symbiote) will allow Peter to engage in aggressive combat which will definitely send his enemies flying.
  • Aside from basic combat sequences, Insomniac Games has also added new and cooler-looking takedown attacks.

Passive Abilities 

  • The major new addition to both Miles’ and Peter’s suits is the web wings.
  • Spider-Men in the game will be able to glide in the air anytime now by deploying their web wings attached to their suit.
  • This will significantly make traversal around New York City much faster and more fun.
  • Miles and Peter will also be able to use wing tunnels scattered across NYC that will boost their speed while in the air. This will allow them to glide rapidly from point to point.

  • On top of that, they will also be having a shared Skill Tree which will offer parallel upgrades for both Peter and Miles.


In conclusion, Spider-Man 2 will be having a lot of new abilities for both of their playable characters. With the iconic Symbiote suit and the abilities it brings with it, it remains to be seen what other features Insomniac has included.
