In a recent post on the PlayStation Showcase blog, Aaron Jason Espinoza, the senior community manager at Insomniac, provided new insights into the skill progression system for Marvel's Spider-Man 2. It appears that Peter Parker and Miles Morales will have their own unique set of abilities, each with a dedicated skill tree and a shared skill tree for parallel upgrades.

The previous game, Marvel's Spider-Man, focused primarily on Peter Parker's adventures. At the same time, the standalone expansion, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, introduced players to the skills and abilities of the young Miles Morales. However, Marvel's Spider-Man 2 aims to unite both characters, allowing players to switch between the two Spider-Men throughout the game seamlessly.

Espinoza explained that Peter and Miles would have different skill trees that contain abilities exclusive to their respective characters. These skill trees will allow players to upgrade and unlock new powers, enhancing the gameplay experience for both Spider-Men. For example, Peter Parker will have access to various powerful abilities associated with the Symbiote Spider-Man suit, granting him formidable new combat techniques and manoeuvres. On the other hand, Miles Morales will showcase his unique blue bioelectric powers, including a ground-pound move named Thunder Burst, and Chain Lightning, capable of shocking multiple enemies nearby.

While the separate skill trees provide individual character progression, Insomniac Games has also introduced a shared Skill Tree that encompasses abilities both characters can access. This shared skill tree reflects that Peter and Miles share technology and train together, highlighting their partnership and collaboration as Spider-Men.

Insomniac Games has emphasized that Marvel's Spider-Man 2 is primarily a single-player adventure, dismissing rumours of cooperative gameplay. Instead, the game focuses on the dynamic narrative and iconic team-ups between Peter Parker and Miles Morales, elevated by Insomniac's renowned set-piece moments. Players will have the opportunity to experience the game's story from the unique perspective of each Spider-Man, immersing themselves in the thrilling world of Marvel's beloved superheroes.

The mention of team-ups and the seamless switching between characters has sparked fan speculation about including multiverse elements in Marvel's Spider-Man 2. The possibility of exploring alternate realities and encountering different versions of iconic characters has ignited excitement and anticipation within the fan base. While no official confirmation has been given regarding introducing multiverse mechanics, the speculation adds an extra layer of intrigue to the upcoming game.
