What exactly is ‘Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales’ for PS5?

Update 11:50 a.m. ET: Despite the description provided by Simon Rutter to The Telegraph about Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales being "an expansion", Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier states this is not the case. His stint in Marvel's Spider-Man helped to further solidify his reputation, but it was Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse that really cemented him as a hero in his own right. The comic book hero title was met with universal praise from critics and fans, and became a major success story for Sony. Perhaps Sony still isn't sure what form this game will take, or if it'll come included with a remasted version of Marvel's Spider-Man for PS5.

The game puts PlayStation in the role of the fantastic Spider-Man successor Miles Morales in an action packed superhero tale. Honestly, they look largely the same, and the PlayStation 5's DualSense controller and accompanying accessories sport the same sleek white look. Not only did the Japanese developer reveal hundreds of upcoming titles, the console itself was finally shown off in all of its glory.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales is now set to be released in the holiday season of 2020.

That's a bit disappointing for fans expecting a complete new Spider-Man adventure this holiday season, especially since the game's trailer describes it as "a new adventure from Insomniac Games".

For those who haven't played any of the Uncharted video games for PlayStation over the years, Uncharted: Lost Legacy is a spin-off of Uncharted 4. The title was standalone story from UC4, and was about eight hours in length.

One of the first, and most exciting, trailers to debut at Sony's PS5 Future of Gaming event on Thursday was for what appeared to be a brand new game set in the same universe as 2018's Marvel's Spider-Man. But no one knew whether players would get their first glimpse of Sony's much-buzzed, warp-speed hardware - that is, until the very end.
