In a nutshell: Yes, you can manually change the time of day in Spider-Man 2. Though it wasn’t possible at launch, the feature was added in via the 1.002 update alongside the title’s New Game Plus mode.

It’s easy to use the feature too. After you load into the game proper, simply press the Options button and then scroll down to the Gameplay tab. After that, the Time of Day option is the first tab you can select.

You can then scroll left or right to choose which setting you want to play the game in. There are currently eight options to choose from, which include:

  • Default: Sets the time to whatever the game would set it as regularly
  • Day: Sets the game to the middle of the day with bright sunshine
  • Night: Changes it to night time
  • Morning: Makes it so that it’s midway through the morning
  • Sunrise: Sets the time to right as the sun is rising
  • Sunset: Changes the time to the moment the sun is setting
  • Dusk: Puts the time of day between sunset and night
  • Overcast: More of a weather change option, but makes it so that it’s cloudy and rainy

When Can You Change the Time in Spider-Man 2?

With all of this said though, there are specific limitations to how and when you can alter this setting in Spider-Man 2.

While you can make these changes anytime you wish while in the open world, it isn’t possible to alter the time or weather while you are in a story mission or while in a more linear segment like Mary Jane’s missions. These are set to specific times for story purposes, and can’t be altered as a result.

Keep this in mind, and you’ll have full control of the game’s environmental settings in no time.

So, there you have it folks. That’s everything you need to know regarding whether you can change the time of day in Spider-Man 2. For more, check out our guide on how to get all the suits in the game.
