Fellow Spidey lovers, unite! A sequel to the smash hit Spider-Man PS4 game was finally revealed! Personally, I couldn’t wait to be back swinging above the dazzling streets of New York City again. With the stunning showcase of new games (and finally a look at the console) we got our first look at Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
You can check out the official trailer below:
That’s right, your eyes didn’t deceive you. This take on the classic character will be Miles Morales. First appearing in the Ultimate comics, Ultimate Fallout #4 to be exact, Miles has been around for nearly 10 years. It’s a refreshing take on a character fans around the world have loved for decades. Miles is also the main character in the hit movie Spider-Man: Into The Spider Verse, which won the Oscar for best animated film.
Now, we’ll get to play as Miles for a full-length triple A game, not just a few stealth missions sprinkled throughout the first Spider-Man game. Coming hot off a successful game, Insomniac sure has some big shoes to fill, even if it’s their own pair. Being released under the PlayStation Studios banner, and Spider-Man being a PS4 exclusive, it’s safe to assume that this will be a PS5 only game. Demos of the first game have been used to show off just how fast the SSD included in the PS5 actually is, speeding through loading times at about almost 8 times the speed of the PS4 Pro.
Miles Morales is being built from the ground up on this system, so it’ll be great to see just what else Insomniac has up their sleeves. The trailer has shown us new abilities, like the electric venom blasts and invisibility, as well as weather and day/night cycles.
