new details will be updated in OP

-Peter isn't gone, but is in the shadows playing the role of a mentor, he communicates with Miles, example they gave was a text, they also interact physically in the story

-Peter's story will also move forward in this game

-True sequel that likely sets the stage for what comes next, a bit shorter than the first game. Not considering it a side story

-Will have new and familiar characters

-Set 1 year after the first game Miles is 17 years old

Opening Sequence:
SPOILER: OPENING SEQUENCE
-Saw the opening sequence running on PS5, calling it as action packed as they come and has a familiar villain (Rhino) that helps set the stage on how Miles becomes a different Spider-Man

-Peter and Miles are both in the opening and take on Rhino and the henchman together, Peter is riding around Rhino as he crashes through buildings and objects and the destruction on hand is impressive.

-The fight goes through several buildings, through a park with a large Christmas tree, and then a mall where a familiar character is playing as a mall Santa (J Jonah Jameson)

-They describe this whole sequence and set piece moments as larger and crazier than the first game

-Saying what Insomniac learned in the first game allowed Insomniac to add crazier action, and set pieces in the sequel and it's really apparent in what they witnessed

Suits:
-Beginner Suit: Miles' homemade suit, similar to the Spiderverse suit
-Gift Suit: Gifted to Miles and is not technologically advanced, looks like pajamas
-Iconic Suit: The suit we have all seen in the promo material
-TRACK Suit: This is one of the DLC suits, the white one with the red spider
-Cat Suit: Masked cat in a backpack lol
-2020 Suit: Futuristic looking suit with LED's

Other Details:
-Talk about how detailed Harlem is, making you want to stop the character and just look around to soak it all in

- Although Harlem is the same size, they have increased the detail in the area and made it more lively, brought in consultants to make sure Harlem was brought to life. Treated Harlem like a character itself

-Swinging motion is not as good as Peter's, his body kind of jolts about as he's swinging through the air, with less control of his arms and legs. Describe him as a bit of a "helicopter" in his movements
Performance Mode
- 4k/60fps
- Screen-space reflections instead of ray tracing
- Native (dynamic) resolution is lowe than in Fidelity Mode

Fidelity Mode
- 4k/30fps
- Ray Traxing
- Other visual enhancements

No load times on PS5. Just a screen flash when you fast travel. On PS4, loading is a mix of Spider-Man images with tips or subway rides.

Standard PS4
- 1080p/30fps

PS4 Pro
- 4K/30fps

There's a suit you get from beating a sidequest that puts a cat with a backpack. It's got it's own spider-man mask and helps you beat bad guys up when you hit them with finishers... GOTY confirmed??

Looks like Rhino breaks out and is one of the bosses!

I'm getting the package deal but it looks like a cleaned up current gen game. Demon's Souls will be the graphics showcase.

I can’t wait until we’re well into the gen and we can lead with good design and not tech-terms like ray tracing.

Looks dope! I will complete the first game before playing this. I don't know if the stories are chronological, but I think it would be best to go in that order.

So, that Performance Mode footage from 2018 Spider Man didn't even have RT on

That's why it looked... okay-ish

i brought this up in other threads. looks like there is a bottleneck somewhere in the next gen gpus. 4k 30 fps should be 1440p 60 fps with rt on.

Looks to me that it's not 1440p 60. It's above that resolution which is why there's no ray tracing, I don't think it will dip as low as 1440p. The better choice would have been a 1440p and 60 with RT though.

I don't get why the game can't do 4k/60fps with ray tracing and visual enhancements. I can't wait until we get pass having two separate modes for "graphics" and "performance"

more details:
-Other villains will be in the game besides Tinkerer and the one mentioned above in the opening sequence, but not as many as Peter faced.

-No more police scanner concept, it is replaced by something Ganke invented that helps all the neighborhoods connect and inform Miles of activities and crimes currently taking place. They call it the Friendly Neighborhood Spider App. Bring up the app whenever you want by swiping left on touchpad and the game slows down to allow you to choose crimes or activities by pressing L1 and R1

I put certain things in spoilers just in case someone doesn't want to know what the opening sequence shows and some story details.

these are two of the most powerful consoles ever made and if they cant do 4k 60 fps with ray tracing then that clearly shows you something.

What they showed, open world 4K at 60fps (virtually locked), was objectively impressive. 4x more pixels displayed than the Pro version and 8x more than the PS4 version:

For comparison's sake the BC games they showed on XSX had from 1.5 to 2x better perf than the XBX versions and that was labeled "extreme" by some journalists.

This shows a lack of understanding of how graphics work. Anything you see on screen has a certain amount of budget in terms of time. If you add more graphically it takes longer to create a single frame. If they did a 4k/60 fps mode with ray tracing it will simply look worse than the same mode at 4k/30 fps because the 30 fps one has twice the amount of time for each frame's graphical budget.

most pc's cant do 4k 60 with ray tracing because ray tracing kills performance and is to taxing no matter what card you have etc, the fact we get 4k 30 with ray tracing with these machines is doing gods work. Ill switch between them but I do need my 60 fps as well.

After the opening sequence Peter tells Miles Mary Jane is going to Symkaria and that he will be joining her as the photographer
