CS Plays 15 Minutes of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
It’s finally here! After months of teases and trailers and gameplay, we finally got our hands on a copy of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales — for the PS4. Not the PS5. Sorry. The lady at Target said they only had four in stock and that they sold out that day, which begs the question: why does Target only have five of the most sought after item of the holiday season? Did anyone learn a thing from those damned Furbies?
Anyways, so far the game is a blast. The opening level does a great job showing off the game’s stunning visuals while simultaneously helping players get back into the swing of 2018’s Spider-Man. Players start the game chasing down Rhino alongside Spidey, and learn a few new things about Morales’ new hero along the way. It’s great Spidey fun mixed a barrage of destructive action! Check it out below.
The Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli-created character originally appeared in Insomniac’s 2018 game as a playable character, though it wasn’t until the end of the primary story mode of the game in which Morales was bitten by a radioactive spider, therein setting up the long-rumored sequel.
Insomniac’s 2018 game was a surprise smash hit upon release, earning praise for its dynamic narrative and character development alongside its combat and web-swinging traversal mechanics, with only mild criticisms being directed at the open-world design of the game. It was compared favorably to Rocksteady Studios’ Batman: Arkham game series and has been frequently named one of the best superhero games ever made and became one of the fastest-selling games of the year and one of the best-selling PlayStation 4 games of all time.
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is set to hit shelves for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 in select markets on November 12, followed by a November 19 international release for the latter console.
