Insomniac Games Recommends Downloading the Launch Day Update for Spider-Man 2

Insomniac Games has suggested that players who buy a physical copy of their upcoming game, Spider-Man 2 for the PlayStation 5, download its launch day update. Although the disc-based version is fully playable without any patches, the studio emphasized that the update includes significant improvements to the game.

Spider-Man 2 is set to release on October 20, and the game has already received high marks from critics. Insomniac Games has stressed the importance of downloading the launch day update, Version 1.001.002, for those buying the physical disc version. According to the studio, this update improves the gold master version of the game available on disc.

The patch isn’t just minor fixes; it enhances the game’s opening sections and includes general refinements to improve the gameplay. Additionally, the update adds more Accessibility Options for players, ensuring a smoother gaming experience.

The update will be applied automatically for those who purchase the digital version of Spider-Man 2. This means digital purchasers don’t have to worry about downloading the patch manually; it will be integrated into the initial download process.

Insomniac Games recommends downloading this update before starting the game for the first time, especially before diving into the opening mission. The update aims to enhance the quality of the initial game sections, making it a more polished experience right from the get-go.

Since the review embargo lifted on Monday, critics have had very positive things to say about Spider-Man 2, adding more reason to be optimistic about the title. It has become one of the highest-rated games produced by Insomniac to date, making the update even more worth it for players who want the best experience possible.
