During the Playstation Showcase, Insomniac Games gave us a look at their upcoming Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales game, a standalone side story focused on Miles Morales’ adventures as Spider-Man. The gameplay trailer shows off not only a glimpse of Miles’ life in the city, but also introduces us to some of the villains–starting off with the Tinkerer, who’s running a group of thieves known as the Underground.
“Miles is searching for a sense of belonging in his vibrant new neighborhood, but a war has broken out between a devious energy corporation, Roxxon, and a high-tech criminal army, the Underground. In the gameplay sequence you saw captured from PlayStation 5 hardware, the Underground interrupts the election rally.
Meanwhile the Underground also attacks a Roxxon convoy on the Braithwaite Bridge in an attempt to steal NuForm energy canisters. NuForm is a highly violate energy source that Roxxon promises can power the entire city cleanly. Here we meet the leader of the Underground, the brilliant Tinkerer. Marvel fans will surely recognize the name of this villain from the comics, but we’re very excited to introduce you to our take on this classic Spider-Man villain.
Miles races to the bridge, and, using his explosive, new bio-electric venom and camouflage abilities, attempts to stop the Underground while protecting the citizens of Marvel’s New York City. But as Miles endeavors to rise to the challenge of becoming his own Spider-Man, he finds it’s not as easy as just having impressive new powers.”
Another thing they explained was that this game will come with a Standard Edition for $49.99 and an Ultimate Edition for $69.99, which will come with a remastered version of Marvel’s Spider-Man as well, which will add three new Spider-Man suits and new trophies for players, while also including all of the DLC that came with the original version of the game.
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be available for Playstation 5 and Playstation 4 on November 12th.
