Update: Developer Insomniac Games has cut through the confusion with a simple statement declaring Spider-Man Miles Morales is not an expansion but a smaller standalone game likely similar to Naughty Dog’s Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.
“Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is the next adventure in the Marvel’s Spider-Man universe,” Insomniac wrote. “We will reveal more about this standalone game at a future date.”
Original story: Spider-Man Miles Morales is an expansion to a PS5 version of the original Spider-Man and not a full fledged game of its own, Sony has today clarified.
Today detailed during the PS5 Future of Gaming livestream, you’d be forgiven if you thought that Miles Morales was a fully standalone title.
“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.”
We’ve asked Sony for further clarification.
