We are only one week away from the highly anticipated Spider-Man: Miles Morales. It is crazy to think that the next-generation of consoles will also release so soon, or I am just bitter I didn’t get my hands on one. Either way, the next entry into the PlayStation exclusive Spider-Man franchise will be a spin-off of the 2018 original. It will be available on current-generation consoles but you can only get the Remaster of the first game when purchasing the PlayStation 5 version. Luckily, anyone buying the PlayStation 4 version will get a free upgrade for the next-gen console. Now, to build up some last minute hype towards the game’s release, Insomniac revealed an amazing looking CGI spot.

Man, the game looks really promising. I cannot wait to get my hands on it next week. We also get another good look at this universe’s version of the Tinkerer, who will be the main antagonist alongside Roxxon. Strangely enough, the promotions haven’t really focused on the oil company much, so they might be trying to hide something with their inclusion in the war over New York City. It is funny that in addition to the “Not Actual Gameplay” text, they also highlight that the headphones worn by Miles in the trailer will not be available in the game. Seems like they had to highlight that fact for some legal reason, it was just a funny little detail I noticed.
Just like the Marvel’s Avengers CGI trailer, it gets our blood pumping for the game’s release. Hopefully, this game sells just as well as the mainline entry to ensure Miles’ own spin-off franchise can grow from here. I do wonder if in future mainline games we will see plenty more Spider-themed characters showing off with a potential Spider-Verse storyline in its future. No matter what they have planned, we have a lot of Marvel gaming goodness heading our way.
