SPIDER-MAN 2 DLC Seemingly Revealed In Latest Patch; Will Revolve Around Tombstone’s Daughter, The Beetle

Spider-Man 2 was released to mostly glowing reviews last year, though many gamers were disappointed with the story’s brevity. While players could take control of Venom for a battle with Kraven the Hunter, the character’s role was smaller than expected and the final act deemed too similar to Spider-Man: Web of Shadows

Insomniac Games was later hit by an industry-shaking hack, with details about its Wolverine video game – and even tentative plans for Spider-Man 3 and a Venom spin-off – all finding their way online sooner than they’d have liked. 

The company has never commented on those but, following the release of Spider-Man 2‘s latest patch (which adds New Game+), clever gamers have uncovered a way to access a developmental menu while pausing the game. This has nothing to do with that hack, though, and instead, is a major blunder on Insomniac’s part!

As we first explained on GameFragger.com, most of the data pertains to the sequel but there are also what looks to be details on upcoming DLC dubbed “Beetle Villain Arc.” 

The leak confirms Janice Lincoln, Tombstone’s daughter, is Beetle in this particular Spider-Verse and these details appear to tally up with last year’s hack which mentioned both this character and DLC revolving around Carnage as well. 

We’re hoping Insomniac plans to make an announcement about DLC and spin-off plans soon; pitting the Spider-Men against Beetle should be fun, though, and it will presumably focus mostly on Miles Morales following Peter Parker’s decision to hang up the webs for now.

As always, keep checking back here for updates.

Spider-Men, Peter Parker and Miles Morales, return for an exciting new adventure in the critically acclaimed Marvel’s Spider-Man franchise for PS5. Swing, jump and utilize the new Web Wings to travel across Marvel’s New York, quickly switching between Peter Parker and Miles Morales to experience different stories and epic new powers, as the iconic villain Venom threatens to destroy their lives, their city and the ones they love.

Spider-Man 2 is now available to purchase worldwide.
