The PS5 Showcase Spider-Man: Miles Morales gameplay trailer pays homage to scene from 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming film in a major nod to the MCU.
A scene from 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming was recreated in the gameplay trailer for the upcoming Spider-Man: Miles Morales. The trailer was revealed as the second game during Sony’s Playstation 5 Showcase and also showed off the game’s gameplay and story as well. Insomniac’s follow up to its hit 2018 game will be launching alongside the PS5 later this year, although at the time of writing the exact release date for the game has yet to be announced.
With the PS5’s release date revealed to be November 12, Spider-Man‘s release is coming fast and the developers have released a trailer showing the HUD, combat system (which aesthetically looks the same), and explained the premise and setting of Spider-Man: Miles Morales. The game is set in Harlem and takes place one year after the events of the 2018 Spider-Man game. In the trailer, Miles’ mother, Rio, is running for office and holding a rally for her campaign.
Per the trailer, Rio’s rally is interrupted by a shootout between Rexxon, a, “devious energy corporation,” and a criminal group known as The Underground, who wants to get their hands on Rexxon’s NuForm, a clean but highly volatile energy source. The conflict soon entangles residents of Harlem, as a bridge is destroyed after a brief skirmish between Miles and The Underground. While the combat and swinging mechanics look the same as the 2018 game, it is followed by quicktime event where the web-slinger rescues a bus driver, and then another that sees Miles using his webs to hold the bridge together, and even pulling it so trapped pedestrians can cross safely. The cutscenes are incredibly similar to the MCU version of Peter Parker and, combined with the graphics on the PS5, make for a breathtaking homage to an already incredible and frantic scene.
Additionally, a Playstation Blog post revealed that the game will be available on the Playstation 4, a surprising announcement considering that up to this point, Spider-Man: Miles Morales was touted as a PS5 title.
