SPIDER-MAN: MILES MORALES RELEASE DATE

Spider-Man: Miles Morales is set to release on November 12, the same day that the PS5 officially drops.

Miles Morales will be released for both PS5 and PS4.

SPIDER-MAN: MILES MORALES STORY

The story of Miles Morales takes place one year after the events of 2018's Spider-Man game. Miles and his mother Rio have moved to East Harlem and she is running for local office.

However, a war has broken out between the devious energy corporation Roxxon and a high-tech criminal army called the Underground, which is led by The Tinkerer. Insomniac Games' Spider-Man universe is a bit different from the comic books, and the new expansion will feature a different take on the Tinkerer, which is alluded to in the gameplay trailer—but we'll have more on that later.

In the gameplay trailer, the Underground attacks a Roxxon convoy on the Braithwaite Bridge in an attempt to steal NuForm energy canisters. NuForm is a highly volatile energy source that Roxxon promises can power the entire city cleanly, but the Underground wants that energy for themselves.

What each side wants with this energy will likely be the mystery surrounding the Miles Morales game, as our protagonist learns how to be a proper superhero.

SPIDER-MAN: MILES MORALES GAMEPLAY

Fans of 2018's Spider-Man will love Miles Morales' gameplay, since many of the same elements remain in this game.

From web slinging to aerial combos, Morales' gameplay will feel familiar but with plenty of new tools in the kit. Specifically, Miles will have his camouflage ability to sneak up on enemies, and his bio-electric venom will be able to really put the hurt on the bad guys.
