New Spider-Man: Miles Morales details have been revealed in a new report that goes into the game's story, as well as revealing a new look at Miles Morales. 

Entertainment Weekly (opens in new tab) has spoken to Insomniac about the upcoming PS5 (opens in new tab) adventure, revealing that the game will take place one year after the original Marvel's Spider-Man (opens in new tab), with Miles' Harlem home in the middle of a turf war between a criminal organisation and an 'energy corporation'. On top of that, Miles will have his own abilities that he can hone throughout the game, including a bioshock and invisibility, which will make him feel different to the original web-head, Peter Parker.

The article also reaffirmed that while this isn't a full sequel to Marvel's Spider-Man, it will be comparable in length to Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, with the game's creative director Brian Horton saying: "This is a full arc for Miles Morales that started in Spider-Man. We really are completing this hero's coming of age in our game. It is a complete story."

Intriguingly, with Marvel's Avengers (opens in new tab) coming out next month, and with it boasting its own (rather controversial) version of Spider-Man (opens in new tab), Marvel Games' head of creative Bill Rosemann confirmed that each game's universe is distinct to each other, saying: "Currently, our plan is to keep each game set in its own Marvel universe."

With Spider-Man: Miles Morales still due to release this holiday, we won't have too long to wait to see what the next instalment in the series has to offer.
