Spider-Man: Miles Morales looks like a web-slinging good time

Posted on September 17, 2020

At the PlayStation 5 showcase event this morning, not only did we get the price and release date, but we got some gameplay of the hotly anticipated Marvel’s Spiderman: Miles Morales.

Check out the gameplay footage they showed:

While no date was shown in the trailer, the PS5 itself finally got its release date at the end of the stream. Soon after, Insomniac Games confirmed that it will be a launch title for the console across all markets. Interestingly, they also added that the game will be released on PlayStation 4 as well.

An Ultimate Edition of the game was also revealed, which will also includes “the remaster of the original game and all three installments of the Marvel’s Spider-Man: The City That Never Sleeps DLC so you can play the full narrative arc. ”

“The remaster for the PS5 is no simple up-res, as many of the game’s art assets have been completely updated to take advantage of the PS5 console’s horsepower. You’ll see better-looking characters with improved skin, eyes, hair, and facial animation (including our new, next-generation Peter Parker). You’ll also see ray-traced reflections and ambient shadows, improved lighting, more pedestrians and vehicles stretching further into the distance, and the same optional performance mode offered on Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, allowing you to finally play the game at a targeted 60fps frame rate. We’ll be supporting near-instant loading, 3D audio, and the DualSense controller’s haptic feedback. Lastly we’re adding three amazing new Spider-Man suits, new photo mode features, and even new trophies for those of you looking to Platinum the game all over again.” The blog continues.

Originally revealed a few months ago, Spider-Man: Miles Morales is set to feature Miles in an adventure that we understand will be slightly smaller in scope compared with the original Marvel’s Spider-man; kind of like how Uncharted: Lost Legacy was a spin-off of the mainline Uncharted games.

Either way, we’re excited to get web-slinging again when Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales launches on November 12th.
