Sony and Insomniac Games have confirmed that Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be a flagship launch title for PS5, and will also come with a remastered version of the original game with next-gen features.
A new gameplay demo was unleashed during the PS5 Showcase, providing us with a detailed glimpse at how Miles Morales will play compared to Peter Parker in this expansive superhero adventure.

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is a standalone adventure in Marvel’s comic universe, and will have you taking control of Miles Morales as he learns to control his powers after gaining them at the end of the last game.

While this won’t be as long as the original game, players can still expect a detailed story which will delve into the lives of Miles Morales and those close to him, including his mother who seems to be running for political office in the face of Harry Osborn’s downfall. In terms of next-gen features, there will be enhanced performance, ray tracing and improved loading times thanks to the console’s SSD.
The Ultimate Edition of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales will include a remastered version of the PS4 predecessor with all of the new features we mentioned earlier alongside new suits, more bustling cities and more.

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales – Will there be a PS5 upgrade?
Miles Morales will also be launching for PS4, and Insomniac Games has confirmed that those who purchase the game on Sony’s older console will be entitled to a free upgrade to the PS5 version. After some initial confusion, it has also been confirmed that save data will transfer between both versions, although that sadly won’t be the case for all PS4 – PS5 upgrades, which is a big letdown for those hoping to upgrade a large portion of their library.
“The PS4 version of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales offers a free upgrade path to PS5 Standard Edition. And if you purchase or upgrade to the PS5 Standard Edition, you can take advantage of a paid-upgrade offer from the in-game menu to download Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered,” reads the PlayStation Blog.
