Insomniac Games, the masterminds behind the highly-anticipated PlayStation 5 exclusive, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, are sending shockwaves through the gaming community with their latest revelation: the game’s colossal memory requirements. According to information surfacing on GamesRadar+, details on the box covers of Sony’s Limited Edition PS5 consoles for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 have unveiled the game’s memory demands.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is set to devour a substantial chunk of your console’s storage, with a minimum requirement of a whopping 98GB of free space. This hefty requirement raises questions about whether additional storage might be needed to ensure seamless gameplay.
To put this into perspective, the first Marvel’s Spider-Man game, which initially launched on the PlayStation 4, demanded a relatively modest 45GB of storage space. However, when the remastered edition swung onto the PS5 in November 2020, it expanded to a considerable 71GB. The game’s spinoff, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, made its debut on the PS5 in 2020 with a 54GB file size, offering players a taste of the Spider-Verse’s adventures.
An Expanding Rogues’ Gallery
While the memory requirements of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 are already causing a stir, it’s important to note that Venom won’t be the sole antagonist in this highly-anticipated sequel. Earlier trailers released this year dropped exciting hints about Kraven the Hunter’s significant role in the game. Kraven seems to be on a relentless pursuit of Spider-Man, in search of a worthy adversary. In gameplay footage unveiled during Summer Game Fest, players got a glimpse of the Lizard hot on Miles’ trail as Kraven observed from a helicopter hovering above, adding layers of excitement to the game’s storyline.
Mark Your Calendar for October 20th
Despite the considerable storage demands, fans of the Spider-Man franchise are eagerly counting down the days to October 20th, which marks the exclusive release date of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 on the PlayStation 5. To sweeten the deal, Sony has already made available Limited Edition Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 consoles and console covers, allowing players to immerse themselves even deeper into the web-slinging world of Spidey.
As gaming technology continues to advance, titles like Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 push the boundaries of what’s possible on the PlayStation 5. With its robust memory requirements and the promise of an expanded rogues’ gallery of villains, the game promises to be a memory-intensive, action-packed adventure that fans won’t want to miss. So, clear some space on your PS5, because Spidey’s swinging back into action in a big way!
