One of the most anticipated titles that will accompany the launch of the next-generation consoles is arguably Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Following a blockbuster 2018 showing from Peter Parker, Miles is set to take the spotlight and fans should be excited about another hit in the making.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales is a PlayStation 5 launch title, but will also come to the PlayStation 4 and is scheduled for November 12. In case you missed it, Miles Morales will come in a more expensive $70 package called “Ultimate Edition”, which features the Miles Morales base game along with the recently uncovered Spider-Man Remastered.
Miles Morales will feature and showcase the power of the PS5 hardware, giving it near zero loading time, a performance mode that allows for 60fps, and even raytracing. While confirmed to be a standalone game with its own full story arc, it was also confirmed to be similar in scope to Uncharted Lost Legacy, meaning it is a slightly smaller and shorter game, give or take around 10 or so hours, maybe 15, depending on how you play.
On its own, Miles Morales may not be worth the $70 price tag, but when you consider Spider-Man Remastered tagging along for the ride, the deal gets even sweeter.
Spider-Man Remastered is not just your run-of-the-mill remaster. Insomniac have updated every model in the game, making it “the definitive version of the game with new assets, technology, and updates”. If by any chance you have not played it yet and are planning to get a PlayStation 5 on launch day, this is a must play.
The 2018 version was impressive enough on its own, but with the new technology of the PS5, you’ll be able to relive the game the way it was meant to be played, in 60fps as well as loading times that are faster than that subway ride. And the cost of it all? a $20 upgrade from the base Miles Morales price of $50. Considering that games are looking to be $70 moving forward, like Demon’s Souls, 2 Spider-Man games for the price of 1 is not a bad deal at all.
Even if you have played the game, this Remastered version is a different beast altogether. Heck, even just the 60fps upgrade should ideally be enough to make you want to swing through the city streets again. Can you imagine how pretty the photo mode is going to be? And whether or not you like Peter Parker’s new look, he’ll be in a mask most of the time anyways throughout your 20 or so hours of gameplay.
All things considered, Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition should be an automatic pickup for fans of the superhero. Of course, we won’t deny the fact that a free PS4 to PS5 Spider-Man upgrade would have been sweet, but whatever the case, adding both of these games to your collection should be almost automatic.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be available on November 12 as a launch title, exclusively on the PlayStation 5.
