Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is the biggest next-gen launch game in development right now, and we’re looking forward to taking a look at its next action following Sony’s Future of Gaming event in June. Entertainment Weekly has helped us down that road, however, with a new screenshot of the PlayStation 5 title. It doesn’t actually reveal anything, but it’s still a fresh shot of the web-slinger in action. And honestly, right now, we’ll take whatever we can get… this has been a very, very quiet week.
However, the screenshot lends more support to the wintry New York vibe and what appears to be an impressive set of PS5 images. Entertainment Weekly writes: “The animation, the movements, the mechanics, even his powers (including bioshock and invisibility) are not just unique gimmicks for this character, but are metaphors for that hero’s journey that the pair keep bringing up.” . Peter’s origin “was born of tragedy”, that is, the death of his uncle Ben, but Horton mentions that Miles is “rather born of family”. What I think is really compelling about Miles as a character is that he has friends that he could let into his world, his human world and his spider world. It’s a little different in the way he approaches it.”
Consider us overkill for this indie game. Are you just as excited? Wall crawl in the comments below.
