Spider-Man 2 is getting close to its release date and Sony is prepping fans by giving details on the game’s file size and a limited-edition PS5 bundle. 

Even with a crush of great games in 2023 including blockbuster RPG Baldur’s Gate 3, the fast-paced mech shooter Armored Core 6, and many more, Spider-Man 2 is one of the biggest releases of the year. The game promises to bring together both the Miles Morales and Peter Parker iterations of Spider-Man, who were featured separately in the previous installment of the series.

With Spider-Man 2 having so much hype behind it, Sony is rolling out a bundle that includes custom PS5 plates that are a mixup between Venom and Spider-Man, a matching controller, and a digital copy of the game. Alongside this is a confirmed file size for Spider-Man 2, allowing players to delete some older games from their storage in anticipation of the new release.

What is the file size for Spider-Man 2?

Sony confirmed that the file size for Spider-Man 2 is 98 GB.

Video games just seem to keep going up in storage requirements, and this game shows how quickly games are growing. That 98 GB file size is massive next to the original Marvel’s Spider-Man on PS4 which was 71.35 GB, as well as the 54.32 GB of PS5’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. 

The PS5 itself, including the one in the Spider-Man 2 bundle, only comes with 825 GB of free space for a standard version of the console. This becomes tight very quickly, offering only enough space for a handful of games and a bit of buffer for downloading major updates and DLC. 

The good thing is the PS5 makes it very easy to remove the plates and add a new SSD to the console. 2-TB SSDs are relatively affordable at this point and some PS5 owners might want to consider upgrading before Spider-Man 2 releases.

When can you get the Spider-Man 2 PS5 bundle?

The Spider-Man 2 PlayStation 5 bundle will be available on September 1, 2023. However, the game won’t be available to download until its regular release date on October 20. This means players who buy the bundle on day one will have to wait more than a month and a half in order to play the game.

Depending on the retailer, there may be a limit of one unit per household for the bundle, and it seems to only be available with the disk version of the console. The Spider-Man 2 plates and controller will be sold individually, though not all retailers will have them. 

There’s a little over a month left before the release of the game and it’s likely these bundles will move quickly. Those who desperately want a Spider-Man 2 PS5 should probably pre-order one quickly.
