'Yes, Spider-Man: Miles Morales is a standalone game' – Insomniac Games

When Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales was announced during the PlayStation 5 presentation last week, fans were ecstatic. Shortly thereafter, however, questions started to arise as to whether this was a full game or just some DLC for Marvel’s Spider-Man.

To squash the speculation, Insomniac Games’ Brian Horton, creative director of the game, clarified on the official PlayStation blog, that yes, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, is a standalone game, made exclusively for PlayStation 5. Horton compares Miles Morales to Uncharted: Lost Legacy, a spinoff of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.

In addition, Miles Morales will take advantage of the power of PlayStation 5.

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales will show off near-instant loading, ray-tracing, 3D audio, and the DualSense controller,” Horton said. “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.”

We still don’t have a release date or price for the game. Check out the new video preview below:
