Back in June, Sony and Insomniac announced Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales for the PS5, and yet some confusion surrounding the exact nature of the title has softened the excitement somewhat. Insomniac insists it’s a completely standalone game, similar to Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, but Naughty Dog’s game featured a completely new cast of characters and cards. Meanwhile, it sounds like Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be built on the same map used in the original Marvel’s Spider-Man. Soooo, wouldn’t it be more correct to call Miles Morales an extension? It is a bit confusing.
Well, a new excerpt from the latest issue of Game Informer can throw some new light on what exactly to expect from Spider-Man: Miles Morales…
Miles Morales is not a traditional sequel, as it comes with a remastered version of Insomniac’s Spider-Man that takes full advantage of the PS5 hardware.
It would certainly make sense to remaster Insomniac’s original Spider-Man if they did update the New York City version for Miles Morales. Still, you have to wonder why Insomniac is so persistent that it will be a “standalone” game. Are multiple bundles offered? Maybe you can only buy Spider-Man: Miles Morales, as well as a bundle with the original game? Regardless, it seems very likely that a PS5 Spider-Man remaster is in the works. Didn’t keep up with Spider-Man: Miles Morales? This short story teaser is about everything we know so far …
Let’s set up the scene for the game a bit more. It is now winter, about a year after the events of the first game. Marvel’s New York is covered in snow and just before the Christmas holidays, a war breaks out between an energy company and a high-tech criminal army. Miles’ new home in Harlem is at the heart of the battle.
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is coming to PS5 this holiday season.
