Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is a week away from launch and somehow, the game has leaked online and it is becoming increasingly difficult to avoid spoilers. It is bad…. Very bad. I completed the game the other day and after sorting through a few forums and Reddit threads, I can confirm that everything important related to the story and gameplay has found its way online. This includes some spoiler-heavy story points, mission mechanics and even the game’s ending.
How this happened is unclear at this time. Usually, retail copies are to blame. Often stores get deliveries beforehand and someone takes a copy home, plays it and uploads gameplay and images. We saw this happen with early copies of Starfield. However, the number of spoilers available online at the moment is definitely a concern. It leaves the game’s mysteries and excitement wide open for anyone to stumble upon.
If want to go into Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 blind, I suggest you stay away from places such as Reddit and Twitter. The handful of YouTube clips that went up have since been removed but that won’t stop users from reuploading them ahead of next week’s launch.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is set to launch on 20 October. Stay tuned for our full review of the game landing on Monday, 16 October at 16:00 CAT. There’s still time to pre-order the game. Check out our full South African pre-order guide here.
