Spider-Man Miles Morales: PS5 Upgrade Details And Game's Scope Confirmed

Thankfully, we now have confirmation from Insomniac Games about the size of the game.

Insomniac Games Confirms Size Of Spider-Man: Miles Morales


In a new PlayStation Blog post, creative director Brian Horton explained "We know a lot of you want to know how big this game is.

Our team at Insomniac has been working incredibly hard to bring you a fantastic Miles Morales adventure since we concluded development on Marvel’s Spider-Man. You’ll experience a full story arc with Miles, one that’s more akin to a game like Uncharted: The Lost Legacy in terms of the overall scope."

"Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is an important, heartfelt, emotional and essential experience to expanding the Marvel’s Spider-Man universe. And we hope it will be for you as well," he added.


Horton also elaborated on the way the PlayStation 5 hardware will improve the Spider-Man: Miles Morales experience.

"Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales will show off near-instant loading, ray-tracing, 3D audio and the DualSense controller. 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," he explained.

"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."

Fans wondering what happened to Peter Parker can also rest easy: Horton explained that "we [Insomniac] still have much of Peter's story left to tell".
