This holiday season will see Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales launch alongside the PS5. It’s a solo adventure all about Miles as he struggles as a rookie hero. While the game is cross-gen, the developers at Insomniac Games are looking to utilize the power of the PS5 with the game.
Via Game Informer, there were five ways outlined that the game will be optimized for the next gen console. First will be a lack of loading with instant or near-instant load times (though the beloved subway transitions can be turned on if you wish). They also talk about the improved graphics, something touched upon in the past when the game’s performance options were detailed.
They also point to how the performances will be better from the motion capture and voice actors due to access to new technology like 4D scans for more complex rigging, which will also go into the next point that the action is able to be more explosive and dynamic. And finally, the PS5’s DualSense will help bring more immersion with its haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, which has been touched on in the past. The full article is worth the read, and there’s a few gifs with examples of what to expect.
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales will release on November 12th at the PS5’s launch. The game will also come to the PlayStation 4 on the same day.
