Spider-Man: Miles Morales a PS5 Launch Title, Also Coming to PS4, 4K Gameplay Revealed


Ever since Spider-Man: Miles Morales was announced back at the big PlayStation 5 reveal in June, fans assumed the game would be a launch title, but Sony never actually confirmed that. Well, thankfully, now they have! Spider-Man: Miles Morales will launch side-by-side with the PS5, and Sony has dropped a new 4K gameplay trailer that shows off Insomniac’s next-gen revamp of Manhattan in all it’s glory. Check it out, below.

Looking darn impressive! According to Insomniac, the Miles Morales footage, captured on a PS5, features ray-traced reflections, and can be played at up to 60fps. Here's a quick rundown of what's actually going on in the footage:

The demo opens with Miles and his best friend, Ganke Lee, walking through their East Harlem neighborhood to an election rally for Miles’s mother, Rio Morales. Here you’ll see some of the characters you’ll get to know during the game and a glimpse at the culture of the neighborhood. We hope you love the beautiful visuals of a wintertime Marvel’s New York, our neon-noir aesthetic for the game, and gorgeous ray-traced reflections.

Meanwhile the Underground also attacks a Roxxon convoy on the Braithwaite Bridge in an attempt to steal NuForm energy canisters. NuForm is a highly violate energy source that Roxxon promises can power the entire city cleanly. Here we meet the leader of the Underground, the brilliant Tinkerer. Marvel fans will surely recognize the name of this villain from the comics, but we’re very excited to introduce you to our take on this classic Spider-Man villain.

Miles races to the bridge, and, using his explosive, new bio-electric venom and camouflage abilities, attempts to stop the Underground while protecting the citizens of Marvel’s New York City. But as Miles endeavors to rise to the challenge of becoming his own Spider-Man, he finds it’s not as easy as just having impressive new powers.

Sony have also announced a Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition, that will come with a full remaster of the original PS4 game. In addition to all the game's DLC, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered will include 4K resolution, 60fps gameplay, updated character models, ray tracing, updated lighting, DualSense haptic feedback, and more. Sony has not specified a price for Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition, but the standard version of the game will cost $50.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales swings onto PS5 on November 12 or November 19, depending on where you live. The game will also be coming to PS4 and those that buy the current-gen version can upgrade for free.
