If it all goes according to the plan and the COVID-19 pandemic won’t cause any more unpleasant delays (what a tautology, right?), Sony’s next-generation console PlayStation 5 arrives to the shelves in December. And we’re lucky to know already plenty of the games that will be running on the console.
‘Spider-Man: Miles Morales’ is one of the titles that will be available for the PS5 console, and it shall come as a standalone game.
There’s a new announcement trailer up for view, and the PlayStation YouTube account simply says that it’s “Revealing Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, a new adventure from Insomniac Games coming to PlayStation 5.”:
Although the trailer doesn’t reveal much, we have Insomniac Games saying the following:
“Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is the next adventure in the Marvel’s Spider-Man universe. We will reveal more about this standalone game at a future date.”
PlayStation 5 will be a significant upgrade for the PlayStation 4 console, as it shall have the following configuration:
