Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Will Tell an Origin Story

Miles Morales Spide-Man

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales will tell the story of... Miles Morales as he initially becomes Spider-Man. In a blog post on PlayStation.Blog, Insomniac Games, Brian Horton, the Creative Director of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, tells the world about... 4D scans. No, really.

Let's rewind this a bit. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales was announced last week with a cool trailer. Everyone got really excited and hyped, but we weren't really sure what the game was about, with confusion on whether it was an expansion or if it was its own game as was eventually cleared up. Now, though, we can get into some more details about the game.

For one, it takes place a year after the events of Marvel's Spider-Man. It's just before Christmas break, and a war between a high-tech criminal army and an energy corporation has broken out, with Miles' Harlem at the forefront of the battle.

As expected, there will be a "full story arc" for Miles, with the game itself akin to "to a game like Uncharted: The Lost Legacy in terms of overall scope." That's still a decent chunk of story, and it also comes with upgrades that the PS5 provides, including the near-instantaneous loading, ray-tracing, the neat DualSense controller, and 3D audio. The characters also look really good too, after being upgraded with 4D scans that make the players look more realistic, along with "spline based hair that moves far more naturally." 

Perhaps most importantly for Peter Parker fans (as Miles is usually introduced when Peter Parker is dead or otherwise gone), there's still a lot more of his story that Insomniac wants to tell, so he's not going anywhere. However, this game is about Miles, so Peter isn't really in the spotlight as he usually is.
