Spider-Man's New PS5 Game Stars Miles Morales


Miles Morales is finally getting his own Spider-Man game, Sony revealed during its PS5 event today. It’s called Spider-Man Miles Morales and is headed to PS5 sometime this holiday season.

Developed by Insomniac, the game looks like it will pick up after the events of 2018’s Spider-Man with Morales taking over web-crawling and super-villain fighting duties from Peter Parker. Two years is a quick turnaround for an entirely new game, and it’s not clear yet whether Spider-Man is a full-fledged sequel or more of a standalone expansion like Uncharted’s The Lost Legacy.



Players have been waiting for something like this to get announced ever since it was hinted at back during the original game. Morales was playable in a few stealth missions, but nothing more. Then a mid-credits stinger suggested he might take on a more prominent role in a follow-up.

Morales was first introduced into the Marvel comic book universe back in 2011 in a separate continuity in which Peter Parker dies and Morales replaces him as the series’ first black Spider-Man. That continuity was eventually merged into Marvel’s main one in an absurd and incomprehensible series of extremely comic book events, paving the way for Morales and Parker to both coexist as Spider-Man and continue on in separate series.

While inspired by the comics, the PS4 Spider-Man game had its own take on the mythology, and seemed to be setting Morales up to be mentored by Parker. Based on the limited footage Sony showed it seems like whatever happens in Spider-Man Miles Morales will see its titular character become the city’s newest superhero.

Sounds like it's not going to be a full length game like the first one. Kinda feels half assed and rushed to sell ps5's at the expense of a more artistically fleshed out game.

I'd imagine it'll be something along the lines of Infamous: First Light. A standalone side story.

I think they compared it to Uncharted the lost legacy.

At the end of the day my feelings on this will be dictated by the price. 30 bucks unless it has a remaster version of the entire first game to go along with it or I'll have to wait it out.

I just hope they fixed wallcrawling. When Spidey gets stuck on a corner like it's an invisible wall.... you know that's bad when even the PS1 Spidey game from Neversoft could do it!
