Spider-Man: Miles Morales Will Have 4K 60fps Performance Mode

You can cut the bells and whistles for that smooth frame rate.

We're all still waiting for Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales for PlayStation 5 to get a firm release date. In the meantime, Insomniac Games is talking about other aspects of Miles' adventure, like the visual prowess. In a tweet, the studio revealed a 4K 60fps Performance Mode for the PS5's first Spider-Man outing.

No further details were given, so we're low on specifics. Is that native, upscaled, or checkerboard 4K? The assumption is the former, but we don't really know. And to achieve the 60fps, Spider-Man: Miles Morales will probably lower additional effects like ray traced lighting, shadows, and reflections, draw distance, and anti-aliasing. Regardless, we have a ton of questions that Insomniac Games will hopefully answer on the road to launch.

The fuzziness of Sony's statements about Spider-Man: Miles Morales continues. When the game was first announced during Sony's Future of Gaming stream, one Sony executive stated the game was "an expansion and an enhancement" of Marvel's Spider-Man on PS4. Insomniac Games had to offer clarification a day later, calling Miles Morales a standalone title.

"Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales is the next adventure in the Marvel's Spider-Man universe," said Insomniac. "We will reveal more about this standalone game at a future date."

Comparisons have been made to Uncharted: Lost Legacy, a standalone game that began life as DLC for Uncharted 4, and Insomniac later backed up that sentiment. "You'll experience a fully story arc with Miles, one that's more akin to a game like Uncharted: The Lost Legacy in terms of overall scope," said creative director Brian Horton. Miles Morales is looking like a launch title for the next-gen console, considering the first PS5 box art that Sony release sported Miles in his superior Spider-Suit.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be coming to PS5 this holiday season.

If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
