Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Pre-Load Is Live; File Size Is 86 GB

The title comes out on October 20, 2023.

Story Highlights

  • As far as extremely anticipated new releases go, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is raising the bar high this time around, coming across as a successor to 2018’s Marvel’s Spider-Man. 
  • The game launches a week from now, but Insomniac has announced that users can now pre-load Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 on their PlayStation 5 console, with the file size being 86.268 GB. 
  • It’s worth noting that extreme Spider-Man 2 spoilers are running rampant at the moment. Caution is advised while browsing forums online. 

PlayStation 5 fans have been waiting all year round for the extremely anticipated sequel to the mega-hit Marvel’s Spider-Man by Insomniac Games. The good news is that we’re just one week away from Spider-Man 2’s global release, and that pre-load for the title has been made to go live. Insomniac Games — the developer — made an official post on X (formerly Twitter), that PS5 players can now start the pre-load.

Moreover, we now also know the initial file size of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 but bear in mind that this is without the day one patch that the title would likely be receiving on the PlayStation 5. By the end of the year, or perhaps early into 2024, the size of the game could well go beyond 100 GB, given how it sits at 86.268 GB at the moment. Make sure to keep your PS5’s storage in check to play hassle-free.

In addition, it bears noticing that since the pre-load for Spider-Man 2 went live today, you might not be able to start the download right away. This is due to regional differences and the various time zones involved. Check back in 12 hours in case you weren’t notified that the pre-load for the title is ready. That should do the trick for you, and set things up for instant playability when the game is out. 

Other Content to Dig Into: 

In other news, we highly advise the excited and the anxious to steer clear of social media and gaming forums at the moment. Major Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 spoilers are running wild right now, and you do not want to be on the receiving end of them, considering the scale of the affair we’re dealing with. It seems someone who beat the game ahead of time recorded every key moment in the campaign and posted it online.  

Some of the leaks include teasing the return of an iconic Spider-Man villain early on in the game, the entire suit list for both Peter and Miles, and even open-world gameplay footage where Peter is swinging across NYC in all his web-crawling glory. Moreover, the title’s complete trophy list emerged online as well a little over two weeks ago, unveiling some interesting plot points, should you choose to check them out.

After this primary teaser, fans got to see more of the game during this year’s PlayStation Showcase, followed by a release date announcement at the Summer Game Fest. Finally, the title will make landfall for the PlayStation 5 on October 20, 2023, which is less than a week away from now.
