Miles Morales Takes Over as Spider-Man on the PlayStation 5

By John Saavedra

Fan-favorite comic book hero Miles Morales is the new Spider-Man for a new generation of gaming.

On Nov. 12, Miles is set to headline his own Spider-Man game, one of the big first-party exclusives for the PlayStation 5.

Set in winter after the events of the PS4 original, the game sees Miles take over as NYC’s webslinger while Peter Parker goes on a hard-earned vacation.

This is a big moment for Miles, whom we’ve watched grow into the superhero role for the past few years.

In many ways, being the city’s sole protector is Miles’ final test — and it’ll be anything but easy.

After moving to Harlem, Miles quickly finds himself stuck in the middle of a war between the Roxxon Energy Corp. and a terrorist group known as the Underground.

The Underground is led by comic book villain The Tinkerer, the game’s main antagonist.

Along the way, Miles will learn new abilities and unlock awesome new Spidey suits, including one inspired by the Into the Spider-Verse animated movie!

He’ll even get to team up with a Spider-Cat!!!

Den of Geek lauded the game for its story and beautiful cityscapes. You should definitely check out this PS5 exclusive at launch! (It’s also available on PS4.)
