Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales Is Coming to Both PS4 and PS5 [Update: It's a PS5 Launch Title]

The Ultimate Edition on PS5 will come with a remaster of the 2018 Spidey too.

Update, 4:55 p.m. ET: Insomniac has confirmed that Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales will launch on November 12 in the United States, making it a PlayStation 5 launch title. In other regions where the PS5 is launching a week later on November 19, the launch will be held until then.

Also of note: those looking to take advantage of the upgrade path should probably stick to the medium they want to use. A Twitter reply from Insomniac says that "if you buy the disc version on PS4 though, make sure you get a PS5 with a disc drive." It seems like the upgrades could be limited to whatever medium you purchase Miles Morales through, either physical or digital.

We knew previously that Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales would be swinging into action on the PlayStation 5 later this year. But now it looks like the webslinger will also be making an appearance on current-gen consoles.

Announced today on the PlayStation blog, Miles Morales' adventure will be slinging onto both the PS4 and PS5. "Yes, that's right, we know that some of you may transition to PS5 at different times, which it was why it was important to us to release the latest title in the Marvel’s Spider-Man universe on both consoles," writes Insomniac's Community Director James Stevenson.

This new Spider-Man adventure will also support a next-gen upgrade path for those who pick it up on the PS4. And vice versa, if you want to play all of Marvel's Spider-Man again, Insomniac Games announced that PS5 will be getting an Ultimate Edition that includes both Miles Morales and a remastered version of Marvel's Spider-Man for $69.99, which will launch alongside Miles Morales. It'll have better looking characters, ray-traced reflections, ambient shadows, improved lighting, more pedestrians, and lots of the PS5-specific features like fast loading and haptic feedback.

In today's gameplay reveal, we got a glimpse of what's in store for Miles' story. His mother, Rio Morales, is running for office. But the outbreak of a conflict between high-tech Roxxon forces and an underground revolution led by the Tinkerer starts to tear up the city.

The gameplay definitely looks good. It's what you might expect given how 2018's Marvel's Spider-Man played, but with a few extra tricks thanks to Miles' particular set of Spidey skills. It's also got a noticeable graphics bump running on the PS5.

Sony has revealed a handful of additional details om the past about Miles Morales's adventure. The game will have a "performance mode" on the PlayStation 5, which allows it to run in a 4K resolution at 60 frames per second. Additionally, the DualSense controller for the PS5 will rumble to let you know which direction you're getting attacked from. A pretty snazzy feature.
