One of the surprise announcements Sony rolled out during the PS5 games showcase event is none other than Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales reveal. At the time, people (including us) assumed that it was a sequel, which it isn’t. Today, Insomniac Games has clarified a few things while they remained coy about other stuff.

There’s a new trailer recap for Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales out today.

Interestingly enough, Insomniac has confirmed that Spider-Man: Miles Morales isn’t a sequel, but a standalone experience and compared it to Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.

We know a lot of you want to know how big this game is. Our team at Insomniac has been working incredibly hard to bring you a fantastic Miles Morales adventure since we concluded development on Marvel’s Spider-Man. 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. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is an important, heartfelt, emotional and essential experience to expanding the Marvel’s Spider-Man universe. And we hope it will be for you as well. 

Insomniac has also commented that Marvel’s Spider-Man protagonist Peter Parker is still “OK,” and they have much more of Peter’s story left to tell.

Finally, for those wondering if we’ll be able to play Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales on PS4, Insomniac hasn’t really clarified any of that, though from the looks of it, this is exclusive to the PS5 due to the wording.

We are also excited for the game to demonstrate the power of PlayStation 5 this holiday. 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. Many of the city’s assets have also been updated 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.

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales swings out this holiday 2020 on the PS5.
