Miles Morales is a new standalone game in the Spider-Man universe, Insomniac Games has reaffirmed. There has been a lot of confusion in recent days regarding this topic, but the development studio’s creative director has finally cleared up any speculation.
Insomniac Games Reveals New Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales PlayStation 5 Details
One of the major improvements between current and next-gen is the fact that PlayStation 5 includes virtually no loading screens. Fortunately, it looks like Spider-Man Miles Morales will take advantage of this as Brian Horton says it “will show off near-instant loading.”
In addition to much faster loading screens, Miles Morales will also feature incredibly realistic lighting effects thanks to ray-tracing. “Many of the city’s assets have also been updated to take advantage of the new console,” the PlayStation blog notes. Ray-tracing is becoming more and more prominent with new video games, so this is hardly surprising.
The next-gen title will also include 3D audio, allowing players to feel more immersed when playing the game. It looks like the title will also take advantage of DualSense’s haptic feedback. To further embolden the realistic experience, characters have been upgraded with 4D scans and improved skin shading.
After plenty of discussions, Horton has reassured fans that Peter is indeed ok. Although they “still have much of Peter’s story left to tell,” Horton has confirmed that “this game is all about Miles.”
Miles Morales launches on PS5 in Holiday 2020.
