    This looks like a bridge game to Spidey 2 which I'm all for. Who knows though, Miles could be just replacing Peter but I think there's still a Peter story to tell with how the 1st ended.

    Weather this is Spiderman 2 or Spiderman 1.5 doesn't matter, I'm shocked we're getting it so soon. But the fact it says "Captured on Playstation 5" makes me think it will be available on PS4 also?

    Just rewatching the trailer and noticed that, definitely sounds like a ps4 title as well.

    Youd imagine it would sell better as a PS4 game also rather than an exclusive for PS5 to try and push sales for the new console.

    Either way, I hope to be getting the PS5 on or shortly after release so will get the next gen version

    So Sony have clarified that is an expansion to the remastered Spider-Man on PS5. No word on PS4 availability but you’d have to imagine so.

    Kind of like Infamous First Light so, standalone expansion. I'd be surprised if Spiderman base game doesn't get the PS5 treatment to go along with it.

    Spoilers for Spider-man PS4 ahead as I discuss my hopes.
    Story wise, I hope that the writers took on board what worked for the Spiderverse version of Miles and introduce some aspects of that character to the game character.
    The clip of (most likely) Miles walking down a snowy street with a parka jacket on would suggest he's getting "cooler" this time around, which would be welcome because, in all honesty, going by those phone calls during the DLCs, he was coming across a bit Scrappy Doo.
    Thankfully the trailer doesn't seem to suggest that Miles is going up against Osborne senior (Goblin) or junior (Venom?) as in my opinion, that's been set up as Peter's fight.
    Looking forward to it either way and hopefully it'll still be available for us sitting in the cheap PS4 seats.

    It sounds like it is an expanded version of the original game.

    "I guess you could call it an expansion and an enhancement to the previous game,” he said.“There’s a substantial Miles Morales component – which is the expansion element – but also within the game as well there’s been major enhancements to the game and the game engine, obviously deploying some of the major PlayStation 5 technology and features.”

    A bit confusing. Whether the expansion is sold separately or what, we'll have to wait.

    Insomniac Games confirming that it's a standalone game. They also confirm to people in the replies that it's a standalone game.

    https://twitter.com/insomniacgames/status/1271468232881422336?s=20

    So it's likely it can be bought itself, or as part of a bundle with a remaster of the original.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,924 ✭✭✭EoinMcLovin


    Going from the trailer, it looks like he has Venom Blast along with invisibility which could open up some great stealth attacks

    This needs to be thought of a Uncharted: lost legacy I believe.

    Whats that in scope, I've never played the Uncharted series.

    Think of it like a spin off TV show.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,851 ✭✭✭✭Potential-Monke


    Sounds like it's the filler between Spiderman 1 and 2 so the second one will have 2 main characters. Not necessarily a bad thing, Rockstar proved 3 characters can be done. I just hope it's natural and not forced-woke like it's potentially suggesting.

    That doesn't explain scope of a video game.

    That doesn't explain scope of a video game.

    A Thiefs End was on average 17 hours long. Lost Legacy is about 8.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,511 ✭✭✭✭Varik


    I'd say 8-10 hours if it was nearer 5-6 that's be a disappointment but you're still likely to get the whole city or as much as was already in it and you're getting it at a different time of year. So it's still likely to feel pretty full even if it is smaller.

    Something I remembered there, the comics introduced the game's peter into the spiderverse. Either in this or going forward in S2 they could have a lot more considering Sony and Disney have patched things up since then.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,851 ✭✭✭✭Potential-Monke


    Multiverse is the way Marvel are going anyway, so wouldn't surprise me if the games followed suit. I'm fairly confident we'll see Spiderwoman (Gwen) in the next game too. Actually, Multiverse seems like it might be the next thing, what with Crash About Time & R&C Rift Apart.

    Actually, imagine a game of Into the Spiderverse. Would be savage, controlling the Spider for each verse and keeping to the art style.

    You mean something like Shattered Dimensions where you played as Amazing Spiderman, Spiderman Noir, Spiderman 2099 and Ultimate Spiderman who all had different art styles

    Really psyched for this. Insomniac's Spider-Man was my gateway drug to the PS4. More of the same with iteration would be cool, it's actually a really replayable game.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,910 ✭✭✭✭flazio



    Looks amazing. Great to see a ps4 version confirmed as well.

    Details from gameinformer article
    Story Elements:
    SPOILER
    -Peter is mostly in the shadows playing the role of a mentor, he communicates with Miles, example they gave was a text, they also interact physically in the story

    -Peter's story will also move forward in this game
    -After the opening sequence Peter tells Miles Mary Jane is going to Symkaria and that he will be joining her as the photographer
    -Miles Uncle is in the game, but no indication he was or is the Prowler
    -True sequel that likely sets the stage for what comes next, a bit shorter than the first game. Not considering it a side story
    -Will have new and familiar characters
    -Set 1 year after the first game Miles is 17 years old

    Opening Sequence:

    SPOILER
    -Saw the opening sequence running on PS5, calling it as action packed as they come and has a familiar villain (Rhino) that helps set the stage on how Miles becomes a different Spider-Man
    -Peter and Miles are both in the opening and take on Rhino and the henchman together, Peter is riding around Rhino as he crashes through buildings and objects and the destruction on hand is impressive.
    -The fight goes through several buildings, through a park with a large Christmas tree, and then a mall where a familiar character is playing as a mall Santa (J Jonah Jameson)
    -They describe this whole sequence and set piece moments as larger and crazier than the first game
    -Saying what Insomniac learned in the first game allowed Insomniac to add crazier action, and set pieces in the sequel and it's really apparent in what they witnessed

    Suits:

    SPOILER
    -Beginner Suit: Miles' homemade suit, similar to the Spiderverse suit
    -Gift Suit: Gifted to Miles and is not technologically advanced, looks like pajamas
    -Iconic Suit: The suit we have all seen in the promo material
    -TRACK Suit: This is one of the DLC suits, the white one with the red spider
    -Cat Suit: Masked cat in a backpack lol
    -2020 Suit: Futuristic looking suit with LED's

    Combat Details:
    -Hold L1 to charge the Venom in Miles
    -While holding L1, each face button when tapped has a different move
    -All the Venom attacks cause Venom Stun to enemies and they are more vulnerable to attacks in this state
    -Venom isn't unlimited and is built up like Peter's focus meter
    -Describes the sensation of charging the venom attack as building up in the left side of the Dual Sense controller and then flows to the right side and rumbles again when you push a face button
    -Miles has his own set up gadgets and they are used just like in the first game
    -Able to perform stealth takedowns from ceilings and walls now
    -Can also reset stealth encounters after being seen by using Miles' Camouflage ability, enemies will then become frightened and fire wildly into the air and try to flush him out with grenades
    -Some enemies are able to see you even when camouflaged

    Swinging:
    -Largely is the same as the first game, but Miles has more tricks he can do while swinging around to earn exp, inspired by sky diving techniques
    -Feel a little rumble when shooting out a web and as you swing the trigger tightens as you reach the end of the swing

    Open World:
    - New York is broken up into districts like the first game, where you have to complete activities and stop crimes to 100%
    - New crimes in this one, but there will be a couple returning from the first game
    - No puzzle lab activity this time around
    - Want to provide meaningful rewards to everyone that completes the activities, mention suits

    Soundtrack:
    - One of Miles hobby is mixing, so one of the collectibles in the game is related to music and possibly has to do with sampling.
    - Game will feature original and licensed songs from Kid Cudi, and Jaden Smith as well as others.


    Other Details:
    -Talk about how detailed Harlem is, making you want to stop the character and just look around to soak it all in
    - Although Harlem is the same size, they have increased the detail in the area and made it more lively, brought in consultants to make sure Harlem was brought to life. Treated Harlem like a character itself
    -Swinging motion is not as good as Peter's, his body kind of jolts about as he's swinging through the air, with less control of his arms and legs. Describe him as a bit of a "helicopter" in his movements
    -Other villains will be in the game besides Tinkerer and the one mentioned above in the opening sequence, but not as many as Peter faced.
    -No more police scanner concept, it is replaced by something Ganke invented that helps all the neighborhoods connect and inform Miles of activities and crimes currently taking place. They call it the Friendly Neighborhood Spider App. Bring up the app whenever you want by swiping left on touchpad and the game slows down to allow you to choose crimes or activities by pressing L1 and R1

    SPOILER
    - Miles is the only playable character
    - Took a lot of care in representation even going as far as taking coaching sessions to get the Nuyorican Spanish dialogue correct

    Some of the new suits along with link to more images
