Spider-Man Miles Morales is half as long as the original game

Spider-Man Miles Morales will be half as long as the original Spider-Man, developer Insomniac Games has confirmed alongside a host of other details.

“Miles’s multicultural background reflects a more modern, diverse world and we wanted to give players a new story, with new set-pieces, fresh villains, and unique quests across Marvel’s New York City,” Insomniac’s Brian Horton began on the PlayStation Blog.

Horton has estimated the game will take around 10 hours to complete, so roughly half the time required for the developer’s original title, and is set one year after the events of the first.

Moreover, Horton confirmed Miles Morales will feature “near-instant loading, ray-tracing [and] 3D audio” and will also take advantage of the new DualSense controller’s haptic feedback.

For those wondering about what happened to the original Spider-Man, Peter Parker, Horton also had some words of comfort for you.

“Many of you fans have wondered if Peter Parker is OK. Don’t worry, we still have much of Peter’s story left to tell. But this game is all about Miles.”

Spider-Man Miles Morales heads to the PS5 this holiday season.
