Spider-Man has got a new trailer with Miles Morales taking a stroll through Harlem chatting to his friend. Brian Horton from Insomniac Games explained that the story picks up one year after the last game and was war has broken out between Roxxon, a company making an experimental energy source, and a new faction called The Underground lead by The Tinkerer.
The video finds Spider-Man fighting criminals on a bridge, rather like the opening of the recent Marvel’s Avengers game.
In the IGN after-show it was announced that the Ultimate edition of the game will also include a remastered version of the original PS4 Spider-Man game!
Shortly after the PlayStation 5 reveal event, there was confusion from Sony exec Simon Rutter calling this new Miles Morales game an expansion, and that “within the game as well there’s been major enhancements to the game and the game engine, obviously deploying some of the major PlayStation 5 technology and features.”
Sony and Insomniac quickly clarified that this would be a standalone game, with Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier reporting that it would be comparable to Uncharted: The Lost Legacy in scope, as it builds off the foundations of the 2018 game.
Insomniac recently announced that players will be able to experience Spider-Man: Miles Morales in 4K and running at 60 frames per second.

Marvel’s Spider-Man does a spectacular job of making you feel like the ultimate Spider-Man. From swinging through the city at high speed to fighting off legions of enemies by zipping between them and pulling them into the air, its gameplay looks like a scene from the films. It’s remarkably well realised in terms of its world, design, and even technically, with short loading times and a rock solid framerate even on the base PlayStation 4. If Spider-Man is your thing then this is an essential purchase.
