Sony reveals first gameplay demo for PS5 launch title Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales

Sony has revealed the first-ever gameplay demo of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, its marquee PlayStation 5 game set to launch alongside the console this holiday.

First revealed at Sony’s June ‘Future of Gaming’ PS5 event, Miles Morales follows the titular teenager one year after the events of 2018’s Marvel’s Spider-Man. Unlike Peter Parker, Miles has only had his powers for a relatively brief time, with the story focused on his journey to becoming a full-fledged superhero.

The demo reveals that the shady Roxxon Corporation will be the villains of the story. In the gameplay, Miles’ unique Spider Powers — invisibility and electric-charged ‘Venom Blast’ are in full display as he fights off Roxxon enemies on a bridge while saving civilians.

It’s important to note that this isn’t a proper sequel to Marvel’s Spider-Man. Instead, Miles Morales‘ scope been likened to Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, a shorter Uncharted experience featuring a new story and characters.

Still, Miles Morales should prove to be a strong showcase of the PS5’s technical capabilities. As previously confirmed, the game will feature a ‘Performance Mode’ to run at 4K/60fps. In general, the game will boast ray-tracing and other next-gen rendering effects. The game should also sport rapid load times thanks to the PS5’s SSD.
