Key developers from Insomniac and members of the game’s cast will reveal new details about the title during the panel, which is titled ‘Symbiotic Relationships’ and set to take place in Hall H on Thursday, July 20.
“Get a behind-the-scenes look at Insomniac Games’ take on the monstrous Venom and how the symbiote plays a role in the sequel”, reads a description of the event.
They’ll be joined by actors Yuri Lowenthal (Peter Parker), Nadji Jeter (Miles Morales), Laura Bailey (Mary Jane Watson) and Tony Todd (Venom), plus Marvel Games creative director Bill Rosemann.
Insomniac released the first Spider-Man 2 gameplay video in May, revealing several new features as well as a key villain, Kraven the Hunter.
Players will be able to seamlessly switch between both Spider-Men across a variety of story moments in the game, with Peter donning a black symbiote suit offering unique abilities, according to Insomniac senior community manager Aaron Jason Espinoza.
“We’re no stranger to Spider-Man knocking heads, but never like this: he’s much more aggressive and punches certainly aren’t being pulled,” Espinoza said. “Symbiote tendrils aggrandize Spider-Man’s silhouette, slamming foes against hard surfaces, dealing no mercy to Kraven’s Hunters.”
