Spider-Man: Miles Morales Is Coming To A Surprise Platform
Spider-Man: Miles Morales is officially coming to PC, and a new trailer for the port has dropped.
Insomniac Games’ 2018 Marvel’s Spider-Man became an instantaneous hit right after the game was released, and it’s currently being held in the highest regard by the gaming community, with many calling it the best superhero game ever made. Its success launched a spin-off in 2020, called Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and ensured that the game is ported to PC in 2022. Now, following the success of the PC port, Sony Interactive Entertainment had decided to bring Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales to the world of PC gaming as well.
The port was initially announced on PlayStation’s YouTube channel via a teaser trailer for Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, showcasing the high-fidelity graphics and beautifully animated web-slinging, swinging, and fighting. As reported by Kotaku, the PC port is being handled by Nixxes Software, the same development company that launched Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, a next-gen PC port of the original 2018’s Marvel’s Spider-Man. The upcoming port of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is currently available for wishlisting on Steam and Epic Games Store.
The trailer didn’t showcase much in its 30 seconds, and no specific release date was disclosed. However, it ended by saying that the game would release in fall 2022 — so it should launch by the latter days of December. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is currently available natively for PlayStation 4 and pricier PlayStation 5 consoles, but the port will give PC gamers the chance to experience the next adventure in Marvel’s Spider-Man gaming series for themselves.
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is similar to the original game in a lot of ways, as it features incredibly similar gameplay mechanics and locals. However, it delivers an entirely original story focused on Miles Morales as the legendary web-slinger and, since Parker isn’t around, New York’s sole protector. It’s likely for the upcoming game to release as a Definitive Edition; the monetization tactics nowadays dictate that the publisher releases the game and its various DLCs for one platform and then bundles them up in an all-out release for all platforms at a later date.
Following that logic, we might even see Peter Parker and Miles Morales in a co-op iteration of Marvel’s Spider-Man gaming series. We previously saw them together in a trailer for the upcoming Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, but it’s still unknown whether they’ll both be playable or Morales just makes an appearance in the sequel. However, we previously reported on the omitted multiplayer component for the original Marvel’s Spider-Man, which included both Spider-Men as playable characters, so there’s still some hope that both will make a simultaneous appearance.
As for Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales coming to PC, one thing everyone seems excited about is the mods. Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered isn’t short on mods; many have appeared within the first week of the game’s PC debut, so it stands to reason the same will happen with the Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales PC port. We’ll have to wait a few more days or weeks before that happens, but those interested can wishlist the game on digital storefronts.
