Spider-Man 2 PS5 Preload Guide: When Can You Play SM2?

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 release date is arguably one of the most anticipated titles of 2023. The game has plenty of people ecstatic to see Peter, Miles, and fan-favorite Spider-Man villains face off against each other. With so many excited to play, when can you preload Spider-Man 2 to your PlayStation 5?

SM2 is the sequel to 2018’s Marvel’s Spider-Man. In the title, Peter Parker took on Doc Ock, Mr. Negative, and plenty of other villains. It’s been a long five years, but we’ve never been more excited to jump into Insomniac’s incredible world. Here’s everything you need to know about preloads and the release date of SM2.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 How to Preload

The preload for SM2 is now unlocked! Boot up your PS5 now to get ready for the upcoming release. 

To preload, you must pre-order the game head to the game in your library and select download. This will then begin downloading the title to your PlayStation 5 console. We highly recommend that you preload the game, as it will take up a whopping 88GB of storage. Attempting to download this package at launch could take quite a while, so it is best to do it during the preload phase.

Additionally, the game has not been announced for any other platforms at the moment, so this only applies to PlayStation 5. Though, a release of SM2 on PC down the line would make sense, with both Marvel’s Spider-Man and Miles Morales making their way to the platform last year.
