Spider-Man: Miles Morales Plot Details Unveiled

Spider-Man Miles Morales

Earlier today, Insomniac took to the PlayStation Blog to reveal some juicy new Spider-Man: Miles Morales’ plot details. They also confirmed that Peter Parker’s story isn’t over yet either, and that he will indeed return.

Setting the Scene

According to the game’s creative director, Brian Horton, Spider-Man Miles Morales will take place around a year after the events of the first game. This time though, Insomniac will be giving us a look at Spidey’s New York in the wintertime.

“Marvel’s New York is covered in snow, and just before Christmas break, a war between an energy corporation and a high-tech criminal army has broken out. Miles’ new home in Harlem is at the heart of the battle.”

This means we’ll get to swing around the already gorgeous world of Insomniac’s Spider-Man, but this time it’ll not only be in the snow, but on the presumably hugely improved graphics of the PS5.

Sizing it Up

In some effort to address the recent confusion Horton also provides a clearer idea of the kind of length we can expect when release day rolls around.

As we suggested the last time we spoke about Spider-Man Miles Morales, “You’ll experience a full story arc with Miles, one that’s more akin to a game like Uncharted: The Lost Legacy in terms of overall scope.”

Horton adds that the Standalone adventure of Miles Morales is an important, emotional, and essential experience. It is intended then, to add some important detail Insomniac has created.

Before rounding off the post, Horton adds gives us an insight into just how excited Insomniac is to bring Spider-Man to the PS5:

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales will show off near-instant loading, ray-tracing, 3D audio and the DualSense controller. We’ve upgraded our characters with 4D scans and improved skin shading for more realistic looking characters and spline-based hair that moves far more naturally. We have also updated many of the city’s assets to take advantage of the new console. As you experience Miles’s story, you’ll see, hear, and feel things in a whole new way, all thanks to PS5.”
