In September 2018, Insomniac’s Spider-Man game for PlayStation 4 took the gaming world by storm. The open-world action-adventure superhero game puts players in the boots of the titular character. Back then, many praised the game for reviving the Spider-Man videogames, and its satisfying gameplay. Four years later, the game’s receiving the same amount of love and recognition after the release of its PC port.
While the PC port brought forth a myriad of settings and features, the port also opened the floodgates to previously unknown secrets. One which proves maybe, the game would’ve had a multiplayer mode planned during its development (via VGC).
First noticed by Twitter user DniweTamp, the executable file of Spider-Man Remaster on PC references a multiplayer mode.

What is interesting is that the game mode is inaccessible to anyone as of now. From what limited information is available, the would-be multiplayer mode would allow another player to take control of Miles Morales and web-sling through New York City. There would also be a PvP and a PvE mode.
According to the post, the Multiplayer mode was separate from the Single Player campaign. Furthermore, it also says that the game mode wouldn’t be available from the start of the game, implying that it was to be an additional download or unlockable.
Only the people responsible for the development could confirm how much of this information holds. What could’ve happened is that early during the production, the team planned on making a multiplayer mode in the game, which got scrapped later on. Whatever the case be, swinging with a friend together through New York City certainly sounds like a fun time.
Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered is now available to play on PC via Steam and Epic Games Store. The game is also available to play on PlayStation 4 (Non-remastered version) and PlayStation 5.
