Preloading Spider-Man 2: A Guide to Preloading the Game

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is all set to launch in the coming days. Just ahead of its launch, the devs have launched a preload option for its players. PlayStation 5 players will now be able to preload the game.

Users who have pre-ordered the game will now be able to preload it. The announcement was made by Insomniac Games on social media. “Get ready to swing,” the post read. Although the new game will preload, it won’t unlock until launch day, that is October 20, 2023. Thus players will still have to wait until October 20 to start playing the game. As per the product page, the game will unlock on October 20, 2023, at 12 AM ET.

Offering the preloading option is probably a smart move by Sony since the game weighs about 98GB. Installing it ahead of time will ensure that players will be able to play at the very minute when the game unlocks.

Spider-Man 2 is available at a starting price of $70 for the standard edition. It also comes in a digital deluxe edition costing $80, which includes a variety of in-game items and perks. Players who preorder any of the available editions will get the Arachknight suit, the Shadow-Spider suit, as well as the Web Grabber gadget, along with three additional skill points. Sony had also launched a limited edition available only on PS5 consoles which has an arachnid-themed design. However, it is currently sold out. Players can pick up a regular PS5 bundle that includes a digital download code for the game.

What is the preload size of Spiderman 2?

Although Sony announced the availability of the preload, it did not share even the estimated game size. This left the community curious.

That being said, it is advised that players choose a safer path and ensure they have at least 100 GB free on their PS5 console. This will help avoid any potential problems that may occur when pre-loading the game.

Spider-Man 2 is a sequel to 2018’s Spider-Man. The developer Insomniac Games makes a return by developing the sequel. Spider-Man 2 will introduce Kraven the Hunter and Lizard. The new game has huge expectations from fans since the original sold more than 33 million copies. In addition, it is exclusive to PS5 and is not coming to PS4. Apart from Spider-Man 2, Insomniac Games is also developing a new Wolverine game.
