Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is out this week, bringing a whole new webslinging adventure to the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. This time, it’s Spidey-in-training Miles Morales who will be put to the test while Peter Parker is on vacation. Trading in a sunny New York City for a wintertime city under siege by two opposing forced, Miles Morales let’s players explore Spidey’s world like never before on the PlayStation.
In our review of the game, we lauded the game for its engrossing story, the care with which it fleshes out Miles as a unique superhero, and the beautiful environments that showcase a tremendous attention to detail. If you’re picking up a PS5 this week, this is one of the launch games you definitely need in your library as soon as possible.
While fans still have a few days before they can get their hands on Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Sony has dropped the game’s excellent soundtrack a few days ahead of the release date, giving players a first taste of the music that will accompany Miles’ crime-fighting adventure. Composer John Paesano, who returns to score the game after delivering an epic soundtrack for the first installment, doesn’t disappoint in the second outing either, this time mixing hip hop beats with the grand orchestral sound of the original.
You can give the soundtrack a listen below:
“New York’s Only Spider-Man” is a particular highlight of Paesano’s score, as is the much more somber “Best Friends,” a tune that hints at something sinister lying in wait for Miles. Indeed, while we can’t reveal much about the game’s story just yet, it’s already been confirmed that the game features at least one Spidey villain from the comics: the Tinkerer, who leads a terrorist group known as the Underground in the game. The Underground is at war with the Roxxon Energy Corp. for control of NYC and Miles is stuck right in the middle.
Fortunately, Miles has a few tricks up his sleeves to fight the bad guys, including new abilities such as the power to electrocute enemies and turn invisible, as well as some new allies. One ally in particular has already taken the internet by storm. We’re of course talking about Spider-Man the Cat — or Spider-Cat — the masked feline that Miles can recruit in the game to help him fight crime. If that’s not enough reason to get this PlayStation exclusive, we don’t know what is!
But if you need more convincing, you should check out the cool new suits you can unlock for Miles, such as the Into the Spider-Verse costume from the hit animated movie. There’s also the very cool 2020 suit, which sports a very cool jacket and a mask with headphones so that Miles can listen to some tunes while taking down bad guys. The suit is also outfitted with RGB lighting, making this one of the flashier looks you’ll find in the game.
Just look at how cool it is:
Looks like the person suit to wear when you want to listen to Paesano’s score on the go.
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is out on Nov. 12 for PS5 and PS4.
