Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Arrives This Year on PS5

Marvel’s Spider-Man, developed by Insomniac Games and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment, was a high profile PS4 exclusive that instantly blew critics and audiences away. Combining Insomniac’s experience with open-world superpowered gameplay (as fixated on in the Infamous franchise) with what may be the most iconic superhero IP in the world proved to be as exciting in execution as it was in concept. After a tumultuous history with Activision, Spider-Man found himself in masterful hands taking the satisfying web-slinging of Spidey’s past and elevating it to the stratosphere. With the added leverage of two successful Spider-Man films released in its aftermath, it makes all too much sense that Insomniac Games would be eager to follow up their massive hit.

 

Insomniac Games broke sales records with Marvel’s Spider-Man

 

Today at Sony’s “The Future of Gaming” event, the murmurings of a new Spider-Man game coming soon were swiftly confirmed, but with a different protagonist at the center. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse made Miles Morales a household name and was largely considered a masterpiece. Now Miles is headlining a video game all on his own. Announced for a Holiday 2020 release, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is keeping the momentum going for the franchise and likely serving as a launch title for the PS5.

The trailer premiering the game shows Miles holding his own in snowy NYC, swinging with the same finesse that made the game’s prequel so satisfying. Meanwhile, his powers against enemies of all shapes and sizes can only be described as electric. The trailer is a triumphant tribute to all things Spidey as he fluidly maneuvers through his environment smoother than ever before. The picturesque footage of Miles protecting his city wears the honorable badge of all being “captured on PS5”, making for an excellent debut of the PS5’s power.

As of now, Insomniac Studios are playing coy about Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales being an outright sequel to Marvel’s Spider-Man or more of a standalone expansion, but it’ll no doubt raise the PS5’s profile singlehandedly.
