Insomniac’s Spider-Man for PS4 is one of the most highly anticipated titles of 2018. A few weeks ago we also learned that the game will feature an appearance from not only Peter Parker but also Miles Morales.
For those of you unaware; Miles Morales is the second Spider-Man to appear in the Marvel Universe and it appears that he will be playing a significant part in Spider-Man PS4. In a recent interview with GAMES Magazine creative director for Spider-Man PS4 Bryan Intihar talked a bit about Miles’s involvement in the game.
“Miles didn’t start out with as big of a role as he has now. But as we started doing more research on the character, I went back and just started reading more and more and more. I’ll be honest, I just fell in love with the character. Just like MJ can provide a different perspective on the world, I thought Miles and his relationship to Peter brings something different.”
“Miles is younger than Peter, and what they experience, and how they get into each other’s live is pretty unique. I said off the bat that we wanted to make a unique Spider-Man universe, one that obviously takes cues from the comics and movies, but also does something unique and different…I’m pretty excited about him and where we take him. It’s going to be something. It’s going to surprise people.”
He also talked a bit about the gameplay mechanics and design.
“Two of the things we’ve been working on are the sense of speed and adding a lot more variety to our animations. So you’ll see more of the classic poses that you’ve seen from the comics, but also just a lot more flair and sense of style.”
“This is a concrete jungle gym that he is flying through. We obviously want to have a level of accessibility, but then also some skill in it. Since this is Spider-Man eight years later, there’s a sense of experience with Peter doing this…There should be a sense of expression in his movement, and that’s something we keep adding on.”
