The game’s Senior Narrative Director, Jon Paquette, revealed that both Peter Parker and Miles Morales are facing personal struggles as they live another life being Spider-Man. While Peter is burdened financially as he can’t let go of Aunt May’s house but is not able to mortgage on it either, Miles on the other hand struggles dealing with his father’s death at the hands of Martin Li, aka Mister Negative.

While the ongoing struggle continues, the game discloses a new villain, Kraven, who with his hunters has started attacking New York, and as Spider-Man and MJ investigate this, they come across Venom’s symbiote threat to the city and their loved ones.
The game also does not fail to showcase the challenges faced by Peter in maintaining his relationship with MJ and his best friend Harry after he gets affected by the symbiote. Harry has also been given more screen time this time around when compared to past games, giving a new character to the fans to adore about.

The game also offers new combat abilities for gamers, like Pete’s Spider-Arms and symbiote Powers, and Miles’ two forms of bioelectric Venom, along with new gadgets like the Web Grabber. The game also features an expanded world with new areas like Brooklyn, Queens, and Coney Island.

The game also brings back the iconic character of Venom, a character known for his dark and rage-focused theme. The game’s Senior Art Director, Jacinda Chew, also explained the design challenges faced along the way in order to balance Venom’s appearance in the game. “It was challenging to find the right balance between liquid and solid in Venom’s materials as going too watery makes him look weak and going too solid can quickly turn him into a tentacle monster. Venom must look both powerful and semi liquid at the same time.” she said.
