    Revealed early-on in the PlayStation 5 lineup showcase was Spider-Man: Miles Morales, the follow-up to 2018's Spider-Man game for the PlayStation 4. But following the much-hyped trailer were fans confused about what exactly the game was: an add-on to the original, standalone DLC content, or a brand new game? Developer Insomniac answers that question in a new PlayStation Blog that goes into further detail regarding the announcement trailer. The story involving Miles Morales will take place somewhere around a year after the first game's story, with the scope of this new game to be comparable to Uncharted: The Lost Legacy in terms of content, with the latter existing as standalone DLC that complimented the game that came before it and had its own full story. Spider-Man: Miles Morales will also take advantage of being on next-gen hardware, with some of the changes from the original PS4 title being improved character models, higher-quality assets, ray-tracing, 3D audio, and much faster loading. And while this adventure focuses on Miles Morales, Peter Parker's story hasn't ended either, claims Insomniac. You'll be able to get ahold of the game and see for yourself when it launches sometime this holiday season.

    I dont know how I feel about this. Spiderverse was so good because of the world, characters and artstyle. Removing most of that and just putting Miles into the ps4 spiderman game just gives me mixed feelings.

    I know that miles first appearance wasnt in spiderverse, but thats where most people know him from. I just wished that they would somehow mix both versions of the character, especially since spiderverse was so well recieved.

    Considering how recently the PS4 Spiderman is and how well it was received it will be hard to beat.

    Plus let's face it, many people might ignore the game because this isn't Peter Parker.

    He was introduced into the game well, what is mixed about that? If miles was just brought in then I would agree, but they built him up plus we are still getting a Spider-Man 2.

    He just doesn't seem very interesting from the build up.

    I grew too attached to Peter Parker to not be biased and like anything with Miles Morales in it less, not that I'll hate it tho...

    So PS5's big launch game can be completed in a day?
    Ouch.
    Better than Fantavision, at least.

    More Insomniac Spider-Man can only be a good thing, I'd be just as happy with Spider-Gwen or any other character. Especially if it means we get a Spider-verse game later on with all of them teaming up.

    Miles' powers lend themselves to some interesting gameplay ideas too, I'm imagining Spinter Cell fused with InFamous.

    I dunno, maybe they could've bundled it with the full game, which they showed on PS5 months ago showing off the access speed advantages, but then again with PS4 BC, will that super fast loading just work by playing the PS4 game?
    Either way, this doesn't come as a surprise as it was already mentioned to be dlc sized - as long as they're not trying to flog it at $60 I'm fine with it..

    spider man PS4 was the first open world game in ages that made fetch quest and exploring fun again, it was a blast from beginning to finish, The DLC was a bit hit or miss.

    But sadly I like Good old Peter Parker, and the characters I grow up with,
    im not going to invest time in a character that i dont care about, actually i didnt even know him until the very end of the game,

    damn, it's like it's 2011 again in this comment section

    I hope you all give Miles a chance. He's an amazing Spider-Man, pun intended. You won't regret taking a chance on him, he's the true successor to Peter's legacy.

    Sounds like they turned that tech demo into a game using existing assets.

    So Brian Intihar isn’t the creative director of this game, meaning they probably started developing Marvel’s Spider-man 2 at the same time with some of the developers, and the rest will join after Miles Morales releases
