Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales PC – 13 Details You Need To Know

Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered took the PC platform by storm in August, becoming PlayStation Studios’ second biggest Steam launch. It’s not surprising, given the base game’s immense success on PS4. But the stage is now set for Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, its follow-up, to capitalize on that success. Here are 13 things you need to know about the PC version, which launches on November 18th.

Story

Taking place after the events of Marvel’s Spider-Man, Miles Morales had donned the moniker of the hero after a year of training with Peter Parker. When Parker leaves Manhattan to assist Mary Jane on an assignment in Symkaria, Miles is its protector. With Roxxon Energy Corporation moving into Harlem to push its new energy source, the Underground and its leader, The Tinkerer, emerging to oppose it, and new enemies like the Prowler to deal with, there are more than enough challenges to face. Unlike the previous game, the story is about Miles growing into his role as Spider-Man and proving himself.

Cast

Aside from Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson, Miles is supported by his mother, Rio Morales, who is campaigning for City Council. Other new characters include Ganke Lee, Miles’ best friend and classmate, his uncle Aaron Davis, podcaster Danika Hart, and his childhood friend Phin Mason. Other noteworthy characters like J. Jonah Jameson, hilariously horrified at the presence of two Spider-Men, Kingpin, and Rhino also appear.

Gameplay

If you’ve played Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered on PC, then Miles Morales is pretty much the same gameplay loop. It’s set in the same open world of Manhattan but with new story and side missions (now accessible via the Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man app). For those who haven’t, well, you’re essentially Spider-Man. You swing through the city, chaining together wall runs and dives, stop random crimes, and battle crooks in fast-paced combat. There are different activities to complete for Activity Tokens and Tech Parts used to craft new mods and Suits while upgrading his Gadgets.

New Abilities and Gadgets

Like Peter, Miles also possesses super-strength, Spider-Sense for detecting incoming danger, and incredible agility for web-swinging and dodging attacks. However, he also brings his own tools to the table with Venom Blast, which can create bursts of bio-electricity to stun foes or deal big damage, and Camouflage for briefly turning invisible. There are also new gadgets like the Gravity Well to group several enemies, Remote Mines that can be attached to surfaces and remotely triggered, and the Holo-Drone for generating hard light clones to fight by your side.

Graphics Options

As with many PlayStation exclusives that have come to PC, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales provides unlocked frame rates and a wide range of graphical options and presets. You can adjust crowd and traffic density, level of detail, texture quality and filtering, field of view, and resolution up to 4K.

Nvidia DLSS 2/3, AMD FSR, and Intel XeSS Support

Nvidia DLSS 2, which boosts performance, and Nvidia DLAA for enhanced image quality on supported cards are included, along with Nvidia Reflex for reduced latency. However, those who own the new GeForce RTX 40 Series can also take advantage of Nvidia DLSS 3. This improves performance further by generating more frames with AI and provides a pretty hefty boost over non-DLSS gameplay. Of course, one can take advantage of AMD Fidelity FX Super Resolution 2.1, Intel XeSS, and IGTI on PC as well.

Ultra-Wide Monitor Support

By now, seeing Ultra-wide monitor support for a PS4/PS5 title on PC is normal. Miles Morales supports 16:9, 16:10, 21:9, 32:9, and 48:9 resolutions, but one nice touch is that triple monitor setups are also supported when playing at 48:9. It’s also compatible with Nvidia Surround or AMD Eyefinity.

Ray-Traced Reflections and Shadows

When Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered was released, it was only available with the Ultimate Edition of Miles Morales. So those who didn’t want to drop $70 at launch (the good old days) had to be content with Miles Morales’ implementation of ray tracing. It’s pretty good, with both ray-traced reflections and ray-traced shadows supported and various quality options to choose from, depending on your hardware.

DualSense and Mouse and Keyboard Support

The PS5’s DualSense controller is supported, albeit via wired USB, and provides haptic feedback along with the adaptive triggers. Various other controllers are supported through Steam Input with options for remapping, but you can also stick with a mouse and keyboard. This again provides numerous customizable options.

PC Requirements

If you’re looking to run Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales at 720p/30 FPS and Very Low settings, then you need an Intel Core i3-4160 or AMD equivalent CPU, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 950 or AMD equivalent GPU, and 8 GB of RAM. This is the bare minimum required to run the game. Recommended settings include a Core i5-4670 or AMD Ryzen 5 1600, GeForce GTX 1060 6GB or AMD Radeon RX 580, and 16 GB RAM for playing at 1080p/60 FPS and Medium settings.

But for 4K/60 FPS at Very High settings, you’ll need a Core i5-11400 or Ryzen 5 3600, a GeForce RTX 3070 or Radeon RX 6800 XT, and 16 GB RAM. The game needs 75 GB of installation space with a solid-state drive required at Recommended settings and above.

Ray Tracing Requirements

Ray tracing has its own set of demanding requirements, starting at 1440p/60 FPS or 4K/30 FPS at High settings (which is dubbed “Amazing” Ray Tracing). You’ll need a Core i5-11600K or Ryzen 7 3700X, a GeForce RTX 3070 or Radeon RX 6900 XT, and 16 GB of RAM.

However, for the Ultimate Ray Tracing setting, which provides 4K/60 FPS and High Ray Tracing at Very High settings, you’ll need a Core i7-12700Kor Ryzen 9 5900X, a GeForce RTX 3080 or Radeon RX 6950 XT, and 32 GB RAM. Once again, an SSD with 75 GB of installation space is required.

Playtime

It’s been mentioned a lot, but Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales isn’t a full-sized game. It’s not an expansion or DLC either – you can easily spend 15 to 18 hours completing its story and side content while collecting everything. Long story short, don’t expect a massive new world to explore, but there’s enough story and action to make it worth jumping in.

Pre-Purchase Bonuses

We won’t spoil all of the different suits that Miles can unlock and craft. However, pre-purchasing does provide immediate access to two of them – the T.R.A.C.K. Suit, which decreased ranged attack damage by 25 percent, and the Into the Spider-Verse Suit, which mimics the animation style of the animated film. You also get three Skill Points for unlocking more abilities earlier and the Gravity Well gadget from the outset. All of these are available to unlock in-game.
