In a surprise announcement at PlayStation 5 Reveal Event, upcoming superhero action-adventure title Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales was showcased by developer Insomniac Games and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment.

Following initial announcement, many were uncertain whether they are getting a DLC or a full game and in a recent interview, creative director Brian Horton talks more details about Spider-Man: Miles Morales, set to arrive on holiday 2020.

Brian Horton talks about inspiration for working on Miles Morales becoming his own Spider-Man and more.




RELATED: Horizon Forbidden West Coming in 2021

Miles Morales is a Brooklyn teenager who got bitten by a genetically-altered spider that gave him powers and super-human abilities like Peter Parker, including his unique invisibility cloak and powerful bio-electric shots of Venom Blast.

Insomniac has introduced Ultimate Spider-Man, Miles Morales into Marvel's Spider-Man universe as a superhero at PS5 digital event. He is out for a self-discovery of being a hero just like his mentor in upcoming standalone adventure.

RELATED: Little Devil Inside Devs Will Change Racist Character Design

When working on previous game, creative director Bryan Intihar of Marvel's Spider-Man had an idea of making Miles Morales a part of Peter Parker's world and therefore, they revealed him to players in E3 2017 demo during PlayStation Briefing.

Given a different and multicultural background he comes from, Miles needed his own game to explore his origin story. He will be having a new plot, set-pieces, villains and unique quests to take on within New York City of Marvel's Spider-Man.

A year after events from first game, a war broke out before Christmas break between an energy corporation and a high-tech criminal gang. Miles Morales finds himself tangled in their web of conflict that takes place in his new home at Harlem.

Insomniac have plans to add more to Peter's story while they are working on solo outing of Miles Morales. Maybe fans will eventually get to see Spider-Man and his iconic Black Costume in a possible sequel title, reported in early rumors.

Players will have a full story experience with Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales on PlayStation 5, though in scopes of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Insomniac Games will reveal more story and gameplay elements before its release on holiday season.

Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales is DLC or Standalone Game?

Insomniac Games confirms that Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be a standalone game for PS5.

Given how much of a success 2018 superhero action-adventure title Marvel's Spider-Man from developer Insomniac Games and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment was, a follow-up sequel became almost inevitable at this point.

In recent digital showcase for PlayStation 5 Reveal Event, next chapter of Marvel's friendly neighborhood wall-crawler is unveiled and people are heavily confused whether it's a DLC to previous game or a full standalone experience.

A recent interview published by The Telegraph with PlayStation executive earlier has lead entire gaming community being confused about newly revealed spin-off game Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales for upcoming PlayStation 5.

One of the most exciting takeaways from PS5 digital event was Miles Morales and that hype has quickly faded out when it was revealed not to be a full-game but a DLC expansion to Marvel's Spider-Man game, enhanced for next-gen console.

RELATED: Capcom Artist Teases Ōkami Sequel

In an attempt to dismiss confusion and rumors among fans after PS5 reveal event, Insomniac had to come out announcing Spider-Man: Miles Morales is in fact a standalone adventure set within Marvel's Spider-Man universe and not a DLC.

On behalf of Sony Interactive Entertainment, executive vice president and European business operations head Simon Rutter referred Spider-Man: Miles Morales to be "an expansion and an enhancement" of original Spider-Man game for PS4.

RELATED: Marvel's Spider-Man Easter Egg Refers to Ant-Man

Rutter was implying that Spider-Man would be playable on PS5 console, pointing out Insomniac Games working on major enhancements and game engine, most likely to install some groundbreaking features of PlayStation 5 technology.

Sony successfully acquired Insomniac last year but has yet to announce a PS5 version of Marvel's Spider-Man. However, they used footage from the PS4-exclusive game for an early PlayStation 5 tech demo last month, highlighting key-features.

Following PS5 reveal, Jason Schreier took Twitter to clarify whether Miles Morales is a DLC or full game.

Though smaller in length than many traditional games, Sony will sell the game as standalone title for PlayStation 5, according to an insider. Bloomberg journalist Jason Schreier compared Miles Morales to Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.

Originally, developer Naughty Dog attempted to work on Lost Legacy as an expansion for Uncharted 4: A Thief's End but ended up releasing it as a standalone yet relatively shorter than a full-priced game in 2017, priced $39.99 only.

A title card from Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales announcement mentions the game as "PlayStation Exclusive", not outright specifying if Sony will be keeping this one to PS5 console only or will release a PS4 version in near future.

Sony never talked about anything similar to Smart Delivery system of Microsoft, which offers free Xbox Series X upgrades for Xbox One games. Leaving these issues unanswered leaves a question of transparency to their consumer base.

Debuting through first game, Brooklyn teenager Miles Morales was foreshadowed to be a superhero successor of Peter Parker after bitten by a genetically-altered spider, especially teased in mid-credits scene of 2018 Spider-Man game.

Miles would often become playable for certain segments of original game where Peter was main protagonist. Insomniac Games has yet to confirm if players get to play as Parker at some point of upcoming standalone spin-off title.

Sony has created this debacle of misleading marketing by not explicitly wording their message. Whereas it will take nearly 40 hours for Marvel's Spider-Man to complete, Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be a relatively smaller walkthrough.

PlayStation 4-exclusive title Marvel's Spider-Man was a massive hit, outselling Batman: Arkham Asylum on release. Sony is eager to repeat similar level of success with Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales when it arrives on holiday 2020.

Reddit user throwawayquarantine8 is claimed to receive some alleged details on Marvel's Spider-Man sequel lately from a person who attended a private meeting of Insomniac Games staff on Zoom video conference on April 17, 2020.

Apparently a meeting really took place on that date, confirmed by a Tweet from Insomniac community director James Stevenson but it could very well be that the Reddit leaker is referring to that just to make these claims seem legit.

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING CONTAINS POSSIBLE SPOILERS FOR UPCOMING MARVEL'S SPIDER-MAN SEQUEL.

Leaks came from their discussion sheds light on possible characters, story, new dynamic missions and weather effects. Details that are mentioned below may contain potential spoilers that you should check out on your own risk though.

One of these leaks states that fan-favorite character Miles Morales would be playable as Spider-Man. He would likely to have a disagreement with Peter Parker at some point and gameplay of Miles were reportedly shown briefly as well.

Spidey is seen to be fighting Mysterio at Statue of Liberty, which could be a reference to Spider-Man: Far From Home. One side mission will take him to Hell's Kitchen to come across Daredevil and then a race against Human Torch in another.

Post-credits scene of Spider-Man has already teased Venom for a future appearance and Insomniac is bringing back everyone's favorite wall-crawler in his classic black suit that took major inspiration from Spider-Man: Web of Shadows.

Reportedly, players can switch back to black costume in-game anytime they want and every suit will have a symbiote version. Venom outfit has its own skill tree that unlocks once you get it and has features for more fluid combat experience.

They say that there are several weather mechanics in work including light rain, light snow, and heavy snow. Attendees of Zoom call are given a showcase of sequence in heavy snow climate type and they will freely transition as you go by.

Given how much detail on gameplay and story are discussed, a large part of development for the game is already done. Players would surely love to swing around as Spidey wearing his iconic symbiote suit and see Miles Morales in action.

Marvel's Spider-Man sequel reportedly has a release window of Holiday 2021 and therefore, will probably launch for PlayStation 5 console. However, you will be wise to take the leak with a grain of salt until Sony gives any official confirmation.

Marvel's Spider-Man Easter Egg Refers to Ant-Man

Easter egg within Marvel's Spider-Man makes reference to Hank Pym, better known as superhero Ant-Man.

Aside from exploring many popular Marvel properties, 2018 PlayStation 4-exclusive action-adventure game Marvel's Spider-Man from developer Insomniac Games has a lot of references to other movies and video games media.

Even after 18 months of its release, enthusiastic fans are still seeing new Easter eggs hidden in-game. Most recently, Reddit user SuperiorArachnid has pointed out an open nod to Hank Pym that he saw no one else mentioning so far.

This newfound Easter egg is an award recognizing technological achievements of OsCorp CEO Norman Osborn in medical science field. He won an accolade from Pym Foundation that is signed by Henry "Hank" Pym, original Ant-Man.

Norman has probably come up with these medical innovations to save his only son Harry Osborn from a terminal illness throughout entire plot. Hank Pym is known for discovering Pym Particle and probably has no idea what Osborn is up to.

Though majority of Easter eggs in Spider-Man PS4 requires you to put a bit of hustle but this one is discovered fairly easily. If you have played through its story then you might recall playing "Step Into My Parlor" mission to spot this image.

Mary Jane Watson and Spider-Man broke into New York mayor Osborn's apartment in order to find any potential traces of his wrongdoing and players can see many of his achievements and awards hanging on wall of his living room there.

Adding this sneaky little detail into a game only shows how deeply Insomniac Games cared about all related properties of Marvel. Many major AAA dev team or publication probably won't even care this much for that project to be successful.

According to a report from NPD Group, Marvel's Spider-Man became best-selling superhero video game of all time last year by outselling Batman: Arkham City and Sony is currently planning for a sequel to release on PlayStation 5 console.

Marvel's Spider-Man Becomes Best-Selling Superhero Video Game

Marvel's Spider-Man has become best-selling video game in superhero genre, leaving Batman: Arkham City behind.

Over the years, a number of Spider-Man video games were released but only a few has become very popular among fans or commercially successful as PlayStation 4-exclusive action-adventure game Marvel's Spider-Man from 2018.

Following a September release last year, Spider-Man on PS4 has managed to sell over 9 million copies by January 2019 and now has toppled Batman: Arkham City by becoming best-selling superhero video game of all time in United States.

This news itself is great for Marvel's most iconic superhero since it has only been out for less than a year whereas Arkham City was released back in 2011 by Rocksteady Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive for past generation of consoles.

Now it may come as a surprise to many superhero fans considering 2018 Spider-Man game has a Metacritic score of 87, which is great but way inferior than a 96 score set by second Batman title from critically-acclaimed Arkham series.

Besides, Insomniac Games have been trying to keep fans happy with occasional release of variant Spidey suits for free and a series of paid DLC in "The City That Never Sleeps" as post launch to stay engaged and relevant.

In a recent addition, Marvel's Spider-Man has offered players Stealth and Upgraded suits from Spider-Man: Far From Home movie. Also, modern-day social media has helped spread word-of-mouth to reach a broader audience of all-ages.

We probably won't see any major superhero titles surpassing its impressive numbers anytime soon and forthcoming Nintendo Switch-exclusive action RPG game Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order is not likely to come any close either.

Marvel's Spider-Man Gets 33% Price Drop

PS4-exclusive action-adventure game Marvel's Spider-Man gets a permanent price drop and now priced $39.99 only.

Without a doubt, Marvel's Spider-Man from developer Insomniac Games and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment is one of the biggest games of 2018 and we have an overwhelming fan-response to back that claim up as well.

Though the hype for this PlayStation 4-exclusive action-adventure title has been died down a little after the five months of launch and people are being ready for new games in 2019, Sony decided to offer a big discount on the title and took $20 off permanently.

Bringing the price down to $39.99 for Spider-Man on PS4 is not something new that the company has done. During Black Friday of 2018, the game was discounted by the same amount and was also given away with a limited edition Spider-Man PS4 Pro Bundle.

However, this permanent price drop on one of the best games of 2018 can cause a small spike on the sales number once again. Many fans who waited for an occasion like this would probably reach out their controller now to go swinging in New York as Spidey.

As soon as the hype died down, Sony dropped price on Detroit: Become Human, God of War and Shadow of the Colossus Remastered too on last year. You can now purchase the game from Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, PlayStation Store and Walmart on the discounted price.

Within the month of its release, Marvel's Spider-Man managed to become the fastest-selling PS4 game ever and even earned more than the opening weekend of Spider-Man: Homecoming movie by selling over 3.3 million physical copies.

Wondering what Fantastic Four and Spider-Man have in common? Well, ever since the Wall-Crawler debuted as a hero in his teens, he tried to join "World's Greatest Family" showing off his talent but only ended up fighting them instead.

The family of four has teamed-up with the Webhead on multiple occasions and was even featured in many mini-series of their own. One of the writers of the game, Christos Gage (Thunderbolts – Secret Invasion, World War Hulk – X-Men) has penned one in 2010 titled "Spider-Man/Fantastic Four".

In Amazing Spider-Man #258, Spidey goes to Fantastic Four headquarter seeking help to get rid of the alien symbiote he was wearing as a costume, which later eventually became Venom. They were successful of getting rid of the suit but he was left only in his underpants.

Spider-Man had to borrow one of their costumes but since they don't have masks, the Human Torch had to improvise an idea to conceal Peter Parker's secret identity and he gave him a grocery bag to wear, thus came the identity of the Bombastic Bag-Man.

Then there was another instance following "Big Time" story arc, when the Wall-Crawler joined the team for real but then they were calling themselves the Future Foundation. This time, Spidey wore a slick-looking black and white costume.

Now, players can simply fancy themselves wearing the Bombastic Bag-Man and Future Foundation suits in Marvel's Spider-Man with the release of patch 1.14 on PlayStation Network. With the Fantastic Four returning to Marvel Comics once again, these new suits came just in time.
