We got to see plenty of cool games at Sony’s PlayStation 5 event, and among them was Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
The announcement trailer doesn’t provide us with a lot of gameplay, but it definitely looks stunning. Here’s what we could glean for it.
At first, we thought Spider-Man: Miles Morales was a proper sequel to 2018’s Marvel’s Spider-Man, but in an interview with The Daily Telegraph, Sony revealed it was actually an expansion, similar to Uncharted: Lost Legacy.
In this expansion, we’ll don the Spidey suit of Miles Morales, who was a playable character in the (annoying) stealth sections of Marvel’s Spider-Man. As you might remember, in a bonus scene at the end of the game, Miles shows Peter he too was bitten by a radioactive spider and has developed superpowers.
It would be interesting to see what’s it like to play a younger Spider-Man, as Peter Parker has already been the wall-crawler for a few years when we control him in the full game. He might even mentor the inexperienced Miles in the DLC.
But Miles does have a few tricks Peter didn’t have – like active camouflage that renders him almost invisible and electrified gloves that deal more damage. We can’t wait to put these to the test.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales isn’t the first DLC Marvel’s Spider-Man got. We previously had The City that Never Sleeps, a three-part expansion where Spider-Mand and Black Cat team up against the mob-boss Hammer Head.
That DLC doesn’t really add anything new gameplay-wise, but we do get to meet a few new characters and enjoy some more web-slinging above New York. Let’s hope the new expansion is more expansive.
Miles himself was recently the star of the successful animated movie Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, in an alternate-universe where Peter Parker was killed. His character was first introduced in 2011, and he’s a part the Marvel Ultimate universe, where he is the new Ultimate Spider-Man.
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is scheduled for Holiday 2020 on the PlayStation 5. Since this is merely DLC, maybe we can expect a PlayStation 5 version of Marvel’s Spider-Man as well.
If you haven’t already, we highly recommend you play the full game when you get the chance. There’s a reason it was one of the best games of 2018.Some of our posts include links to online retail stores. We get a small cut if you buy something through one of our links.
