How To Change Time Of Day In Spider-Man 2

If you're looking for the perfect ambience when swinging through New York in Spider-Man 2, you might be wondering if you can manually change the time of day.

With Spider-Man 2 finally out in the wild, fans have been enjoying every aspect of their web-slinging adventure. Be it traversing the cityscape of New York, or exploring Photo Mode in all its glory, there's a lot of atmosphere to take in. 

One aspect that players have been wishing for more control over is being able to change the time of day in-game. Some prefer swinging through the city at night, whereas others try to capture the perfect photo at sunset. So, is it possible to change the time of day in Spider-Man 2?

Sadly, no. There's no way to manually change the time of day in Spider-Man 2 when you're playing through the main story campaign. Instead, if you're hoping for a specific ambience, you'll have to let time pass automatically in-game.

However, there are exceptions to this. If you're undertaking a mission that is set at night, then the time of day will remain at night until the completion of that particular mission. So, if you're hoping to make the most of a certain time of day, consider taking a few detours when completing these sorts of missions.

Interestingly, both Marvel's Spider-Man and Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales both featured the options to manually change the time of day once players had completed the main story. They were able to do this by heading to the options menu. 

It's possible, then, that developer Insomniac could add this as a feature alongside the New Game Plus update, scheduled to arrive later this year. However, at the time of writing, Insomniac has yet to confirm whether or not this feature is scheduled to arrive in the future.
