It's been a few weeks since Spider-Man 2 arrived in stores and we now have some never-before-seen concept art from the critically acclaimed video game sequel. 

Shared by artists Daryl Mandryk and Dennis Chan (via GameFragger.com), we start with the former's alternate designs for Venom, Sandman, The Lizard, and the Symbiote army which is eventually unleashed on New York City. 

Chan, however, has revealed keyframes from several key moments, including Peter Parker's near-death experience and Harry Osborn's transformation into Venom. We also see Mary Jane Watson as She-Venom - instead of Scream - and a spectacular piece depicting the Anti-Venom Spider-Man going toe-to-toe with his friend-turned-foe in a far bloodier final battle.

Also of note is what looks to be scrapped plans for a level set in The Daily Bugle which would have likely seen Peter and/or Miles Morales teaming up to save J. Jonah Jameson from an attack by the monstrous New Yorkers. 

Many gamers have complained that the sequel felt rushed, so we wouldn't be surprised if this was one of many missions and side quests that weren't included. Despite major improvements across the board, Spider-Man 2 felt a little more sparse than its predecessor when it came to what players could get up to. 

You can check out this new Spider-Man 2 concept art in the Tweets/Xs below. 

"Spider-Men Peter Parker and Miles Morales face the ultimate test of strength inside and outside the mask as they fight to save the city, each other, and the ones they love," reads the game's synopsis, "from the monstrous Venom and the dangerous new symbiote threat."

"Explore an expansive Marvel's New York with faster web-swinging and the all-new Web Wings, quickly switching between Peter and Miles to experience different stories, epic new abilities and high-tech gear."

"Wield Peter's symbiote abilities and Miles' explosive bio-electric powers in battle against new and iconic Marvel Super Villains," it continues, "including an original take on a symbiote-infused Venom, the ruthless Kraven the Hunter, the volatile Lizard, and more from the Marvel Rogues' Gallery."

Spider-Man 2 is now available to buy worldwide.

"Many gamers have complained that the sequel felt rushed"

I would say playing it safe is more of an appropriate description of the game. It felt more like an upgraded version of the first game, not a full sequel that takes everything to the next level.

@Th3Batman - rushed and prioritizing mj missions.

No seriously, you have more, longer missions as mj than you do with f@#$ing venom. And they admitted to cutting content just to give us more gameplay with mj.
Th3Batman - 11/17/2023, 10:28 PM
@Origame - I don't hate the MJ missions as much as some do, but cutting anything to make more room for them is just stupid. I get that MJ is a main character in the Spider-Man mythology, but is this really the best they can do with her ? Her missions were an improvement from the first game, but that's like saying a D grade is an improvement over an F grade.
Origame - 11/17/2023, 10:53 PM
@Th3Batman - they seriously said a goal of this game was to make people like playing as mj despite knowing people didn't want mj missions. They admitted to cutting content and don't care they made mj op.

@Th3Batman - "improvement" is such a strong word... more like "Kathleen Kennedy'ed".

Nothing says THREAT quite like "nah, my potential future baby-Mamma slid for me".

Pacing felt off.

this game felt like Multiverse of Madness to me, it was OK at best with some cool sequences here and there but - as shown in the concept art - it could have been so much more

Mid Game. So freaking amazing. Love this game. Accidently beat it twice, cant wait for some DLC

The symbiotes overrunning the police station and a venomized MJ look pretty cool, and Harry on his mother's grave is pretty brutal

8.5/10 for me.

Really need that NG+ & QOL patch/update. Wonder what the DLC will be like...

Love this game.
Venom was finally a threat again

Watched it on YouTube. The writing felt like utter nonsense. MJ should've been a pleasant surprise. Not a continuation of feminine nonsense.

Get her on Top model and stop turning everything with a 🐈 into a goddamn excuse to cut corners.

If trained hunters can't catch the 🐩, why the [frick] do we need two Spider-Men???

Looks like she is the Superior Punisher!

.... aight. I'm done... for now!
