Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 may not have been officially announced by Insomniac Games and PlayStation just yet, but there is no doubt that the project is under development. As such, many fans theorize and often think about what they would like to see in the next iteration of the popular PlayStation franchise. In recent days, however, a new suggestion from a fan regarding a mechanic they would like to see in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 ended up going virtually viral.
In a post on the official Marvel’s Spider-Man subreddit, a user by the name of u / wayne2420 has indicated that he would like to see a swipe feature added to the upcoming sequel. This mechanic is perhaps the most familiar to Spider-Man fans thanks to his appearance in the film. Spider-Man: Far From Home. “Hopefully Insomniac will implement a sliding mechanism when it comes to traversal possibilities,” this user said on Reddit. “Swinging through New York then sliding at high speed while zigzagging through buildings would be crazy.”
While the idea behind this mechanism may be fairly straightforward, its mention immediately struck a chord with the Marvel’s Spider-Man community on Reddit. Soon after sharing this post, he received thousands of upvotes from other people who agreed with the notion. Many like-minded fans agreed that this gliding ability would be a great inclusion and help the web sling feel even more unique in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.
Even though it might be something fans want to see in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, it will probably take a little longer until we see if Insomniac chooses to actually include the feature in the game. At this point, we know very little about the sequel, other than the idea that it is surely in development at the moment. Fortunately, a new spinoff entry from the series, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, just released at the end of last year. This game is currently available on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 if you haven’t purchased it already.
So what do you think of this idea? Would you like to see a gliding mechanic added to Marvel’s Spider-Man 2? Let me know your thoughts in the comments or hit me up on Twitter at @ Mooreman12 if you want to find out all about Spidey.
