Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales comes exclusively to PlayStation, on PS5 and PS4. Available November 12th 2020. The game continues from where Marvel’s Spider-Man and its downloadable content The City That Never Sleeps left off, during which Miles Morales was bitten by a genetically-enhanced spider and gained powers similar to Peter Parker’s.
A year after the first game’s conclusion, Morales has trained under Parker and has fully integrated himself into the role of a Spider-Man, though he has yet to gain the experience. After Parker leaves to join his girlfriend, Daily Bugle reporter Mary Jane Watson abroad as her photographer presumably to cover the ongoing civil war in Symkaria, Miles is left as New York’s sole webslinger. He must thus balance supporting his mother Rio Morales’ campaign for City Council and defending both his new home in Harlem and the rest of New York City from a gang war between the Roxxon Energy Corporation and a high-tech criminal army called the Underground, led by the Tinkerer. Parker tells Morales that he has to be like his late father and walk on the path to becoming a hero for the city of New York
