During last night’s PlayStation 5 Showcase live streaming event, Insomniac Games and Sony revealed a gameplay trailer for the upcoming game Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
The gameplay trailer included the first-ever look at the PlayStation 5’s actual gameplay such as its 4K visuals and 60fps capability. Unfortunately, the trailer didn’t include the game’s exact release date and only showed that it will be released sometime this “holiday 2020.”
Spider-Man: Miles Morales is set a year after the events of 2018’s Spider-Man inside a snow-filled Harlem – the community where the hero Miles Morales lives. The trailer shows the city on the brink of being torn into pieces thanks to a chaotic war between an unknown criminal organization and an energy corporation.
While the game is set one year after 2018’s Spider-Man, this game is not a sequel. According to the developers, a sequel featuring Peter Parker will come in the future but for now, Insomniac Games will focus first on how they will tell the coming-of-age story of Miles Morales.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be a PlayStation 5 exclusive and there are no updates if the game will be available to other consoles in the future. Below is a detailed description of the game based on Sony’s official website:
“The latest adventure in the Spider-Man universe will build on and expand Marvel’s Spider-Man through an all-new story,” reads an official pitch of the game. “Players will experience the rise of Miles Morales as he masters new powers to become his own Spider-Man. With PlayStation 5’s ultra-fast SSD, players can near-instantaneously fast-travel across Marvel’s New York City, or feel the tension of each one of Miles’s web-swings, punches, web shots, and venom blasts with the DualSense wireless controller’s haptic feedback. Highly-detailed character models and enhanced visuals across the game intensify the story of Miles Morales as he faces great, new challenges while learning to be his own Spider-Man.”
