Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Allegedly Features Horror Elements

Expert Verified By

A Darker Tone For Spider-Man 2!

During its official reveal, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 showcased Venom, confirming the long-awaited face-off between Spider-Man and his most iconic villain in Insomniac’s universe. However, the developer and PlayStation have remained silent since then.

More footage and information for the game are expected to arrive tomorrow at the PlayStation Showcase, but a new rumor before the reveal appears to be teasing a focus on horror elements for Spider-Man 2.

Why it matters: Horror elements could allow Insomniac Games to take a unique approach to the game, differentiating it from previous titles.

The information comes from fans who claim to have interacted with the voice actors for the upcoming title. One fan claims that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is a lot darker than the previous game.

With Venom being a huge focus and the main antagonist for the sequel, it is not too far-fetched to believe that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 could introduce darker tones and horror elements.

The villain has previously been known to be brutal and terrifying in various pieces of media, and Insomniac Games could use this opportunity to create unique gameplay mechanics to portray Venom’s threat.

Previously, Batman Arkham Asylum utilized Scarecrow for unexpected horror segments, using the character’s psychological elements to surprise the players. Insomniac Games may implement similar sections with Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, potentially with their spin on the mechanics.

However, it should be noted that nothing is confirmed for now. It would be best to take this information with a grain of salt until official information comes from the developers.

Over a year after the initial reveal, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is set to return to the spotlight. With brand-new hardware and several years of experience for the developers, the game has the potential to become a special release for Insomniac Games.

The previous title was already considered the best Spider-Man game by many. Still, the sequel could take things one step further, and unique mechanics like the potential horror segments would go a long way toward making it an even more exciting story with Spider-Man’s most fierce nemesis.
