Lots of people have been asking will Spider-Man Miles Morales be on PS4 or is it a PS5 exclusive, and everyone thought they had the answer before Sony recently changed the chess board.
Sony said that they had no interest in making their next-gen games backwards compatible with the current-gen due to believing in generations. This and other facets resulted in people believing that every next-gen exclusive from them would not be available on the current-gen.
However, we have only just learned that Spider-Man Miles Morales will be on the PS4 come November 12th along with the PS5 as a launch title.
The game isn’t exclusive to the next-generation, but there is an Ultimate Edition which provides a discount for Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered.
If you purchase it on PS4, there will be a free upgrade available for when you make the move to PS5. However, this is only applicable if you purchase a digital copy of the game rather than a physical one.
Yesterday’s PS5 reveal event was a fantastic outing as we saw a lot of incredible reveals such as Resident Evil 8, a new Ratchet and Clank, and – most surprisingly – the futuristic console itself. While the event officially started with GTA 5, Spider-Man Miles Morales was another early banger that wowed Sony fans. However, people are unsure about whether it will be on PS4 or if it’s just a PS5 exclusive.
Aside from the star of the hit Multiverse movie back in 2018, Sony also revealed another exclusive from a hit IP of theirs in the form of Horizon Zero Dawn 2 (officially titled Horizon 2: Forbidden West). We unfortunately didn’t get to see a whole lot of Aloy’s next adventure, but Sony loyalists undoubtedly have a lot to look forward to with Ratchet and Clank, Horizon Zero Dawn 2, and another web-slinging adventure being just the beginning.
However, for those who won’t be able to make the leap to the next-gen from the get-go, below you’ll discover whether Spider-Man Miles Morales will be on PS4.
Spider-Man Miles Morales PS5 release date
The release date for Spider-Man Miles Morales on PS5 is Holiday 2020.
This is the same release window as the PS5 console itself, so it’s possible that Spider-Man Miles Morales will launch on the very same day as Sony’s next-gen system.
Some fans are confused about whether the title is an expansion upon Peter Parker’s outing in 2018 or whether it’s a full-blown sequel.
PlayStation Blog says the following:
“The latest adventure in the Spider-Man universe will build on and expand Marvel’s Spider-Man through an all-new story.
Players will experience the rise of Miles Morales as he masters new powers to become his own Spider-Man.”
It doesn’t appear to be an expansion ala DLC, but there will most probably be a Spider-Man 2 with Peter Parker again in the near future.
Is Spider-Man Miles Morales coming to PS4?
Spider-Man Miles isn’t announced to be coming to PS4 (update: Spider-Man Miles Morales is confirmed to be coming to PS4 as well as PS5).
The game has only been announced for PS5 which means that Spider-Man Miles Morales will not be on PS4.
Although some will be disappointed by this decision, Sony did say that their next-gen exclusives wouldn’t be limited by being cross-gen.
PlayStation Blog says that Spider-Man Miles Morales will take advantage of the PS5’s hardware:
“With PS5’s ultra-fast SSD, players can near-instantaneously fast-travel across Marvel’s New York City, or feel the tension of each one of Miles’s web-swings, punches, web shots, and venom blasts with the DualSense wireless controller’s haptic feedback.
