Insomniac Games and Sony have revealed new details of Spider-Man: Miles Morales, the game that will start the path of exclusives on the PlayStation 5. Of course, as long as there is no unexpected delay that complicates the initial strategy of the console. So the Burbank, California-based studio has again focused on pointing out that this is a brand new title, not downloadable content from Marvel’s Spider-Man.
Own history, skills and movements
Undoubtedly, Sony had a communication problem when defining the type of game it is Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Although the company has come out to explain that it is a new adventure on a couple of occasions, to date there are still doubts about it. In order to leave speculation behind, Insomniac Games assured that Miles Morales will have his own animations, movements, playable mechanics and even powers
As for the story, Spider-Man: Miles Morales will follow its own narrative path. “It’s a full arc for Miles Morales that started in Spider-Man. It’s a complete story“said Brian Horton, creative director of the project. However, the above does not mean that it will not have any relation to the previous title. In fact, Horton hinted that Peter Parker will also appear, as he is still teaching some arachnid skills to the young Miles .
“When we started to create it [a Miles Morales]We realized that with a slightly more compact storytelling style, we could tell an emotionally shocking story that would fit very well as an experience that would take the first Spider-Man and Miles Morales to do justice to this character, “Horton stated . Of course, the campaign Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be shorter than Marvel’s Spider-Man, although for now we do not know its specific duration.
Insomniac returned to compare Spider-Man: Miles Morales with Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, a spin-off that was originally planned to be released as an expansion of Uncharted 4. However, Naughty Dog determined that Chloe Frazer’s adventure was more extensive than a simple DLC, so they continued its development as a standalone title. Fortunately for Sony, the game was received positively by gamers and the trade press.
The visual leap from ‘Spider-Man: Miles Morales’
What can we expect technically? The study had already revealed that players will be able to choose to enjoy it in “Performance Mode”, that is, in resolution 4K y 60 fps. However, they will apparently sacrifice some visual details that will be present in the 30fps mode. Entertainment Weekly shared a new image of Spider-Man: Miles Morales in which you can clearly see how the water reflects the character’s hand. James Stevenson, Community Director for Insomniac Games, confirmed that this has been possible thanks to Ray Tracing technology.
