The latest patch for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 fixes Miles Morales’ apartment flag, which was originally of the wrong country.
Soon after the PlayStation 5 exclusive came out, fans noticed the Cuban flag inside and outside Morales’ apartment. Both Miles and his mother Rio are Puerto Rican. While the Cuban and Puerto Rican flags are similar in design, they use different colors.

Now, developer Insomniac has issued an update to the game, fixing the flag issue. Insomniac also issued a statement of apology, promising to do better in the future: “Today’s patch corrects an error where the Cuban flag was incorrectly displayed instead of the Puerto Rican flag. We understand that accurate representation matters, and greatly regret this error. We sincerely apologize and will do better in the future.”

This week, IGN reported on one player who discovered the fate of an absent villain by going out of bounds. Elsewhere, IGN has covered the comic-book that references the lack of superheroes in the game. We also investigated whether Spider-Man 2 should take fall damage, according to science and lore.

We wrote in our Spider-Man 2 review: “As a sequel in a spectacular series, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is both blessed and cursed… Insomniac refines a successful formula of combat and web-swinging without revolutionising either in major ways, making them comfy and familiar with just enough new tweaks and abilities to elevate them to fun new heights. The part that feels like it actually needed a radical rethinking is the open world of New York City, which has been made bigger but not better, with an exhausting checklist of mostly repetitious side activities.”
