The Chrysler Building, which was featured in 2018’s Spider-Man but was absent from 2020’s spin-off Miles Morales, is also missing from the sequel as Insomniac was unable to secure a copyright agreement with the building’s new owners.
Sony has also released another Spider-Man 2 trailer, which is viewable below, showing off some of the contents of its Digital Deluxe Edition ($79.99 / £79.99 / €89.99).
It includes the base game, all pre-order bonuses, plus 10 unique suits (five for each hero), additional Photo Mode frames and stickers, and two extra skill points.
Sony launched a Spider-Man 2 special edition PS5 console bundle, console covers and DualSense controller earlier this month.
The Spider-Man 2 release date is October 20, 2023.
