Sony has shown off its first gameplay demo for the upcoming Spider-Man: Miles Morales. The game, set a year after the events of Insomniac’s previous Spider-Man title, will put players into the shoes of Miles Morales as the heroic web-slinger, complete with new abilities and powers.
In the footage, Miles faces off against a new villian, the Tinkerer, in footage that seems specifically designed to show off the fancier lighting and particle effects that the PlayStation 5 can offer over the original Spider-Man from the PlayStation 4.
The new footage also shows off how Miles’ combat as Spider-Man will differ from Peter Parker in the previous game, with new flashy venom blast-infused abilities and a rechargeable camouflage for stealth (which appears to be on a cool-down to prevent players from abusing it.)
Broadly, though, the game strongly resembles the PS4 original, with acrobatic combat against a range of enemies and swooping web-slinging to navigate around environments. There’s also still the occasional quick-time event for larger cinematic moments, like Miles yanking two halves of a destroyed bridge together.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales is expected to launch this holiday season.
