6 Things We Know About 'Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales' For PlayStation 5 So Far

Here’s what we know about the new game coming this holiday season!

Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales

There’s a new Spider-Man in town and his name is Miles Morales. Following in the footsteps of the critically-acclaimed Marvel’s Spider-Man, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is a brand-new addition to the Marvel’s Spider-Man universe coming this Holiday 2020 season.

First introduced in Marvel’s Spider-Man, Miles is now at the forefront of his own game and we all get to go on this journey with him. Get ready to see a brand-new side of Marvel’s New York City from Miles’ perspective as he learns how to be a hero.

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is a Stand-Alone Game

Even if you haven’t played Marvel’s Spider-Man, you can jump right in with Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales without missing a beat. The story is completely stand-alone with its own, full story arc, new set pieces, new villains, and unique quests. Peter Parker isn’t completely out of the picture but for right now our focus is on Miles.

When Does This Spider-Man Story Take Place

When we first meet Miles again, it’s wintertime in Marvel’s New York about a year after the events of Marvel’s Spider-Man. A war between an energy corporation and a high-tech criminal army has broken out and Miles's new home in Harlem is at the heart of the battle.

What Is The World Like for Miles Morales?

In terms of narrative and gameplay, Marvel’s Spider-Man:Miles Morales delivers a full, complete story that packs important, heartfelt, and emotional beats that are essential to the Marvel’s Spider-Man world.

Miles’ Powers Differ from Peter’s

With Miles being his own Spider-Man, there are going to be new powers to utilize. A few of those abilities include bioelectricity and invisibility. Don’t expect Miles to move the same way as Peter – as a younger hero trying to get a grasp on his powers, we’ll be along for the sometimes-bumpy ride as Miles web-slings across Marvel’s New York.

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Perfectly Pairs with PlayStation 5

The new game will show-off near-instant loading, ray-tracing, 3D audio, and the DualSense controller. Additionally, 4D scans, improved skin shading, and spline-based hair make for more realistic looking characters, and many of the city's assets have been updated to take advantage of the new console. This means that players will see, hear, and feel things in a whole new way on the PS5.
