With Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 being one of the most anticipated games in 2023, fans worldwide are excited to jump into the adventure. Having the option to defeat iconic supervillains together can be quite enjoyable, so here’s everything we know about multiplayer and co-op in Spider-Man 2.

2023 has been quite an exciting year for gaming, with fans witnessing some big releases across a range of genres like Hogwarts Legacy, Starfield, CS2, Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty, Baldur’s Gate 3, and more.

However, the fun is far from over as Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is set to hit store shelves on October 20, 2023. Insomniac Games received a lot of praise for their work in the original game as well as Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and the hype for the next installation including both Peter Parker and Miles Morales is quite high.

If you’re interested in roaming around New York with your friends in-game, here are all the details regarding multiplayer and co-op in Spider-Man 2.

Can you play Spider-Man 2 with friends through co-op?

No, Spider-Man 2 doesn’t support multiplayer and co-op, implying that you can only play in single-player mode. This could be disappointing for fans who wanted to beat villains such as Peter and Miles together and swing across New York with their friends. The game’s theme, ‘Be Greater, Together,’ also underlines team-play but clearly, it is about players using both Peter’s and Miles’ skills during their playthrough.

Having said that, the series has been single-player till now and many players seem to be fine with it. Spider-Man 2’s combat is also quite technical and incorporating co-op might not be a priority for the developers.

Although Spider-Man 2 won’t have multiplayer or co-op at launch, the developers might add the feature with a future DLC. For instance, Ghost of Tsushima was a single-player experience at launch but a free DLC by Sucker Punch studios let players enjoy co-op eventually.

Insomniac is yet to comment on any plans to release a co-op DLC for Spider-Man 2, as the team is looking forward to having a seamless launch first.

We’ll update this article with the latest relevant details about co-op or multiplayer in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 so check back often.
