Sony is giving PlayStation Plus Premium members on PS5 a free trial of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 from Insomniac Games.
Revealed on the PlayStation Blog, those subscribed to the $159.99 / £119.99 a year PlayStation Plus tier can download Spider-Man 2 at no additional cost on February 6 and play two hours before making the decision to purchase it fully or not.
As is the case for all PlayStation Plus Premium game trials — which also include heavy hitters Baldur’s Gate 3, Alan Wake 2, Cyberpunk 2077, and more — all saved data and trophies will carry over if players do decide to purchase the game later.
Spider-Man 2 continues the story of Peter Parker and Miles Morales as they take on a rogues’ gallery of Marvel villains headlined by the big bad Venom. It earned an 8/10 in IGN’s review, as we said: “Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 delivers Insomniac’s best tale yet, and despite its open world falling short, is a reliably fun superhero power trip.”
Those picking up the game now will also enjoy its various post-launch patches, as Insomniac has removed myriad bugs (thankfully not arachnids) from Spider-Man 2 while upping the stability and general level of polish.
February 6 brings a handful of other games to PlayStation Plus users including hero shooter Foamstars, which has received both praise for its gameplay and criticism for its use of AI generated assets.
