Now that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is lastly out within the wild, gamers are discovering all of its cool moments and comedian e book Easter eggs. However a bunch have encountered one thing far more sudden: a glitch that turns Spider-Man into a bit of white lump of tofu.

It’s not technically tofu per se, however that’s definitely what some gamers suppose it appears like. The unusual bug sees a small dice you would possibly affiliate with early growth prototyping utterly change the titular superhero’s physique. Spider-Block as some are calling it (me, I’m calling him that) can nonetheless do all of the wonderful issues the neighborhood web-crawler usually does, like web-slinging by New York and comboing dangerous guys skyward. The bizarre glitch transforms the expertise from cool comedian e book stuff to extra-surreal fever dream.

Social media is already filled with gamers encountering the dice glitch:

The tofu slabs simply seem any time both Peter Parker or Miles Morales’ go well with mannequin fails to load. Then it’s dice time. You possibly can repair it by going again to the go well with menu and swapping to a unique costume. It’s good to try this shortly, too, since there are studies of some cubed gamers falling by the map after their sudden transfigurations.

Hopefully it will get solved quickly so these gamers may also expertise the glory of Spider-Block.
