Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 update brings back classic suits and more

A new Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 update is now available to download on PlayStation 5. As with some of Insomniac‘s previous patches for the open-world superhero title, there’s some fresh content to get tangled in as well as further accessibility options and other game improvements.

Once you have downloaded and installed the new free update, you’ll gain access to an extended wardrobe of Spidey suits.
