Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered is an solely single-player expertise, as is its follow-up Spider-Man: Miles Morales, which is coming to PC quickly. But it seems developer Insomniac Games toyed with the thought of multiplayer in its open-world superhero game, as urged by info uncovered throughout the PC model’s executable file.
The preliminary discovery was made by Twitter consumer DniweTamp, who posted two photographs displaying traces of textual content purportedly from the game’s executable. One picture references a phrase “Superior Spider-Man”, which could be utilized to both Peter Parker or Miles Morales.

That’s not all. Another picture contains what look like dev notes within the code, stating “If set and in co-op, Character 2 will see this text.” This implies Insomniac additionally had a cooperative mode for Spidey within the works, letting gamers crew up and battle thugs across New York collectively.
As for the validity of the pictures, gaming information web site VGC acknowledged in its personal report that it had “verified the contents of these files, confirming these elements”. So it seems the information are legit.
The almost definitely motive behind these hints towards multiplayer is solely that Insomniac examined out multiplayer performance for Spider-Man, however determined to ditch it, both to scale back the scope of the mission, or just because the studio could not get multiplayer to work the best way it wished. That mentioned, it is attainable that this might additionally characterize a test-bed for multiplayer in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. Insomniac has beforehand referred to the sequel as Peter and Miles’ “most epic single-player adventure yet.” But the game will function each Spideys in its marketing campaign, and permitting cooperative play can be a heck of a hook for a second game.
Either method, for the second you will need to content material your self with single-player Spidey. The excellent news is, that is under no circumstances a poor various.
