The time is now! Spider-Man: Miles Morales is about to drop on PlayStation 4 and PS5.
As one of the launch titles on PS5, fans are excited to jam Insomniac Games’ latest Spider-Verse adventure. At the same time, there are more than a few fans grumbling about the price since it’s about as expensive as a full game even if it’s supposed to be shorter than 2018’s Spider-Man.
Speaking to Game Over, Insomniac’s Creative Director Cameron Christian said that this new game takes Spider-Man to another level. “I think the most important thing for us was to tell an interesting Miles story,” Christian said. “The steps he takes to become a Spider-Man, to learn his skills and to become an important player in New York City. In terms of structure, there are a lot of things that worked well in the original Spider-Man—rhythm, design, mission delivery—that we said ‘this will work great for Miles, let’s focus on telling a great story and keep it the structure’.”
Fortress of Solitude’s Sergio Pereira and Loïs Qutob discuss what they hope to see in Spider-Man: Miles Morales when it launches this week and how it has the ability to kickstart a bigger Spider-Verse for the publisher that was teased in the first game.
At the same time, they don’t shy away from some of the issues and concerns that fans have raised in the build-up to the release.
