A mod for the recently released PC port of Marvel’s Spiderman finally allows players to equip a version of the iconic symbiote suit.
Insomniac Games’ remastered version of the wall crawler released earlier this week (August 12) on Steam, and Nexus Mods is already no stranger to a number of visual and mechanical mods for the title.
One in particular is a version of the iconic black symbiote costume, from jedijosh920, which comes from a symbiote that bonded with Peter Parker in the 1984 comic event. Secret Wars, and it is now available for download for PC players. It combines the Advanced combination of Marvel’s Spiderman with an all black look.
While this mod was featured for the PS4 version of the game in 2020, it’s now available to download for PC gamers – check it out in the video below.
What makes this take on the suit significant is that we could see Insomniac launch its own version next year. Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. The sequel is confirmed to include Venom, who gets the symbiote after Spider-Man in the comics, but it also looks like Kraven The Hunter is involved.
Throughout the trailer, an unseen character says they were looking for an equal, “one who could push me, one who could surprise me, one who could even beat me.” Yet all I found was disappointment.
Although unconfirmed, this looks a lot like Kraven, as the character hunts Spider-Man as the ultimate prey. In fact, the character takes on the Spider-Man costume in the 1987 comic. Kraven’s Last Hunt, the hunter wearing it after believing he killed the hero. While it looks like the same black costume, it’s actually a standard cloth made after Peter and the symbiote left, but the imagery could definitely play into the next game.
If both Kraven and Venom are in the game, we might expect the black symbiote costume simply because the two characters have been linked to the look in some way in the past. You can find the symbiote suit mod here.
