Spider-Man 2 To Launch With 30,40, And 60FPS Performance Modes

Ray Tracing Enabled In All Modes!

The excitement for Insomniac’s Spider-Man 2 has reached new heights after the recent wave of marketing from PlayStation.

In addition to a new trailer at yesterday’s State of Play, impressions for the game have given fans a lot to discuss and enjoy ahead of the official release coming up on October 20.

The media previews have also revealed details about technical aspects of the game, and Insomniac confirms Spider-Man 2 will launch with a 40FPS support for 120Hz displays, in addition to the typical 30FPS and 60FPS modes on consoles.

Why it matters: Spider-Man 2 is built to use the maximum potential of the PS5, allowing it to reach higher frame rates without significant compromises to the overall image quality.


IGN interviewed Mike FitzGerald, Director of Core Technology at Insomniac, to get insights on the different aspects of the game.

Mike described that Spider-Man 2 is a culmination of the experience gained from Insomniac’s previous PS5 titles, including the latest Ratchet and Clank and the two Spider-Man games.

He described that working on these games allowed the studio to leverage the PS5, and the team was able to implement ray tracing in a massive way. He asserted that ray tracing is enabled in all modes since:

“There is no need for it(to be disabled).”

The Director also confirmed that Spider-Man 2 supports 120Hz VRR displays for added flexibility.

Ray-tracing will add an element of realism and dynamic lighting to Insomniac’s rendition of New York. This is among the primary reasons Insomniac left it enabled across all modes.

The 40FPS mode also strikes a balance between visuals and frame rate, making it perfect for players looking to get the best of both worlds. However, it should be noted this mode requires a VRR display.

Spider-Man 2 continues the trend of PlayStation games, making no compromises and providing 60FPS experiences on the PS5.

The first-party release is just over a month from launching worldwide, and recent previews have ensured that the excitement for the game does not subside as fans wait for the release date.
