Spider-Man: Miles Morales Revealed, Coming to PS5 This Year
Sony and Insomniac games have revealed Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales at the PS5 console reveal event. A sequel to Marvel’s: Spider-Man (Sept. 2018), Spider-Man: Miles Morales has us swinging around the city as, well… Miles Morales! (Spoilers for the first game incoming) In the first game, Miles is bit by Spider 42, and in the post credits scene, he shows off his newly found powers to Peter, and Peter reciprocates. Did I think they would transition this quickly to Miles? I didn’t. However, Miles has seen an explosion of popularity with the outstanding Spidey film, Into-the-Spiderverse. I applaud them for taking the leap after just one recent game.
The accompanying trailer and screens don’t give too much away, but there are some hints of new powers. Outside of the amazing image quality, which was to be expected in next-gen games, I can’t wait to see how the game will take advantage of Sony’s “secret sauce” aka, their lightning fast SSD. The turnaround time is also something to be commended since it has been less than two years since the first game’s release.
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is set to release on PS5 during Holiday 2020.
