During Sony’s Future of Gaming show back in June, it was announced that Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be coming to PlayStation 5 later this year.
A follow-up to Insomniac’s hit Marvel’s Spider-Man game, Miles Morales isn’t a full sequel to the acclaimed 2018 game, but rather a standalone title/expansion similar to Uncharted: Lost Legacy and Wolfenstein: The Old Blood. However, as the game’s creative director Brian Horton has explained to Entertainment Weekly, that doesn’t mean that fans of the young hero will be left feeling short-changed when it comes to Miles’ story.
“This is a full arc for Miles Morales that started in Spider-Man,” said Horton. “We really are completing this hero’s coming of age in our game. It is a complete story. [We] realized that, with a little bit more of a compact storytelling style, we could tell a very emotionally impactful story that would fit really well as an experience that would take Spider-Man 1 and [Miles Morales] and do justice to this character.”
Horton also went on to touch upon the differences between Miles Morales and Peter Parker, stating that Miles’ arc “more so born out of family. What I think is really compelling about Miles as a character is he has friends that he could actually let into his world – his human world and his Spider world. He’s a little different in the way he approaches it.”
Spider-Man: Miles Morales is slated for release during the 2020 holiday season. Will you be picking it up upon launch? Let us know on our social channels @FlickeringMyth…
