The developer of Marvel's Spider-Man 2 has made "a big effort" with the sequel's side content, which includes more narrative than ever before.
In an interview with The Movie Podcast, Jacinda Chew (Senior Art Director at Insomniac Games) encouraged future Marvel's Spider-Man 2 players to play optional missions to see "some really cool surprises." According to Chew, Insomniac has "added a lot of great side content" this time around that adds even more narrative to the game.
"We've added a lot of great side content," Chew explains in the interview, "one of the things I know people love about our game is just the amount of narrative and story that we have in the world, so we've definitely made a big effort and pushed to put a lot of narrative into the side content, so I would tell people to please play those optional missions because you will see some really cool surprises."
