He Summer Game Fest by Geoff Keighley threw several announcements about what is coming for the video game industry in the coming months, and among the most interesting was that of spider-man 2. The new PS5 game has a confirmed release date, but some interesting news about the villains has also been revealed. AND venom He is the one who, clearly, takes all the looks.
But first things first. Insomniac Games confirmed that spider-man 2 Coming to PS5 next October 20. In this way, the intention of the study to launch the expected title in the course of the fall has been ratified. The good news for the impatient is that they will be able to reserve it from June 16, and it will be available in different versions with incentives and exclusive items.
However, as we said at the beginning, the most curious part of the announcement of the release date of spider-man 2 has been linked to Venom. Insomniac Games referred to what had already been revealed in the recent Playstation Showcase: the symbiote will not be the only enemy that Peter Parker and Miles Morales will have to face. They will also say present Lizard (Curt Connors) and Kraven the Hunter.
It is more than clear, however, that Venom will be the main threat to the heroes. Not for nothing, the game trailers have placed special emphasis on including him in this proposal. However, the developers of spider-man 2 have revealed a very peculiar detail about the identity of the character.
The Venom of spider-man 2 (PS5) is not who you imagine
During announcements about the release of spider-man 2, Bryan Intiharcreative director of Insomniac Games, appeared on stage at the Summer Game Fest. During his interview with Geoff Keighley, the manager confirmed that the version of Venom that will appear in the PS5 game It won’t be Eddie Brock’sits best known (and popular) host.
Asked if the Venom of spider-man 2 would be linked to the variant created by Norman Osborn (Earth-138), or if it would be Eddie Brock, Intihar did not hesitate, but left room for surprise. “It’s not Eddie Brock. Our goal was to tell a new story, something you wouldn’t have seen in comics and movies.. Obviously, we love Venom for a reason. All the things you love about the character are going to be there, but you’re going to have to play the game to find out how the plot unfolds and who Venom is,” he explained.
There are no doubts that the commitment of the developers of spider-man 2 around Venom is interesting. It is known that, throughout his history in the comics, the symbiote has had multiple hosts beyond Spider-Man himself and Eddie Brock. From Mac Gargan (Scorpion) and Flash Thompson, to Quentin Beck (Mysterio), among many others.
However, if Insomniac really wants to move away from the comics and movies with a new story around Venom, it’ll be interesting to see how it pans out. Let’s not forget that the actor who will lend his voice to the character will be Tony Toddknown for starring in the horror film series Candyman.
On October 20, all doubts about Venom will be resolved with the launch of Spider-Man 2. The standard version of the game will cost 69.99 dollars/pounds or 79.99 euros. Those who access the pre-sale will receive special costumes for Peter and Miles, as well as gadgets specials and skill points. An edition will also go on sale.
