If the success of our All the Suits and How to Unlock them page for Spider-Man on PS4 is anything to go by, then there’s one thing I know for sure about Insomniac’s Marvel games: people love the suits.
2018’s Marvel’s Spider-Man and 2020’s Miles Morales both became known for the breadth and depth of the suits they had hidden in dark corners of the game. Unlocking them and meeting the criteria to add them to your wardrobe was one of the main reasons people kept playing after the credits rolled.

Insomniac has obviously recognized this. One of the headlines revealed during a presentation of the game at a recent preview event specifically emphasized that there would be an impressive number of colors in this game; a stunning 65 of them! I guess that makes sense – with two heroes roaming the streets of New York, you’ll want to make sure each of them has the best drink.
But wait, there’s more. Aside from the base outfit, you also get the option to modify the costume via a customization tab. From what I previewed, this didn’t appear to be available for all suits, but some outfits had multiple options for you to choose from. There were a few color variants available for Miles and Peters’ suits in the preview (which appeared to be from the DLC, such as Peter’s Apunkalyptic suit). It remains to be seen whether there will be further options.
“It was pretty awesome to find the right spot for us and add these suit styles,” says Ryan Smith, senior game director at Insomniac. “There’s the great suit design, and then there’s a little bit of the player’s expression in terms of how you want to look. Even in our team playthroughs and things like that, you’ll see people trying different variations.”
As for the actual suits we know will be in the game, there have been a few reveals so far. Aside from the Advanced 2.0 Suit for Peter and the Classic Suit for Miles, each of these listed below is a pre-order bonus (Arachknight Suit and Shadow Spider Suit) or a bonus included with the Digital Deluxe Edition (the rest). .
- Advanced Suit 2.0 – Peter Parker
- Black suit – Peter Parker
- Arachknight Suit – Peter Parker
- Tactical Suit – Peter Parker
- Aurantia Suit – Peter Parker
- 25th Century Suit – Peter Parker
- Stone Monkey Suit – Peter Parker
- Apunkalyptic Suit – Peter Parker
- Classic Suit – Miles Morales
- Shadow Spider Suit – Miles Morales
- Agimat Suit – Miles Morales
- Red Specter Suit – Miles Morales
- Encrypted Suit – Miles Morales
- Biomechanical Suit – Miles Morales
- Tokusatsu Suit – Miles Morales
That might seem like a lot, but there are only 16 of them – about a quarter of what was confirmed to make it into the base game. And if Spider-Man 2 is anything like the very first game, then we’ll see updates throughout its life that will likely add more suits to the game. Marvel’s Spider-Man has seen general updates and DLC costumes added to the game as it matures – and I think we can probably expect the same thing to happen here (we know how much Sony and Insomniac like a traditional expansion, right ?)
We’ll certainly see when Spider-Man 2 launches exclusively for PS5 on October 20th. You can read everything we know about Spider-Man 2 so far at the link.
