Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is getting a suit from the 2018 computer-animated film, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The suit will be available as a pre-order bonus, but will not be bound to it. Meaning, other players will still be able to unlock it by playing the game.
As you can see from the trailer, the suit follows the same cell-shaded colour palette and art style, along with the dynamic animations, which looks ripped straight out of the movie. It also features the slow frame rate effect, which although looks quite stunning, could be easily turned off via settings. Other outstanding features can be seen mainly during the high-octane, acrobatic combat. Which includes the tingling Spider-Sense animation around Miles’ head, and the pop-up speech balloons and burst cards saying stuff like “BAM”, “THWOKK” and “KRAAAK”, just like in the comics. You can find out more from the gameplay trailer below.
The other pre-order bonuses include the white T.R.A.C.K. suit, designed by Javier Garrón, one of the talented artists from the Miles Morales: Spider-Man comic book series. Plus, an early access to the Gravity Well Gadget and some extra skill points to spend on new abilities and upgrades.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales was first showcased at PS5: The Future of Gaming event, back in June. The game is set 1 year after the events of the first Spider-Man game and follows the story of Miles as he takes on the brilliant arms dealer – The Tinkerer, while adjusting to his new home in New York. The special abilities that come with the brand-new black suit include the stealthy camouflage ability which makes him practically invisible, and the venom strike, which passes high doses of electric current to his foes, inflicting heavier damage. Additionally, the game will also be featuring a new feline friend named, well… “Spider-Man”, whose sharp claws will be assisting you in combat, as long as you are wearing a jumper and backpack combo.
This would not be the first time Insomniac has incorporated a suit from one of the animated adaptations into the game, as they had previously included the 2D-style vintage cartoon/comic style costume in Spider-Man for the PlayStation 4, which you can check out here.
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales releases on 12 November 2020, on the PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 systems in NA and Oceania. The game releases worldwide on the PlayStation 5 on 19 November 2020.
