When the PlayStation 5 was finally given its grand unveiling after months of frantic anticipation earlier this year, the one thing igniting hype better than anything else was the tease for a sequel to Sony's universally adored action adventure game, Marvel’s Spider-Man.

And while the mere sight of a souped-up Spidey suit on PS5 was enough to get everyone's imagination whirring, it was the dramatic reveal of the face behind the mask that had everyone hitting the pre-order button... Miles Morales was getting his own video game.

Gamers got a taste of Miles in the first Spider-Man game, getting past drones and other foes with a bit of duck and cover stealth to help out Peter Parker but in this new game we will take control of this special webslinger. Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales brings you an exhilarating Spider-Man tale of good vs. evil, power and responsibility and New York spirit, but things are slightly different here. Miles Morales is our Brooklyn-born, Harlem living, streetwear and street art loving hero and he’s going to defend his city his way. Your way. He’s got super-strength, web slinging and the spider-sense we know and love, but he can also turn invisible and unleash a venom blast that can leave foes reeling. That’s handy when he’s taking on villains like Rhino and the Tinkerer, or trying to avoid J Jonah Jameson, but the very first thing he does to help someone when you load up the new game is help someone carry something heavy while walking down the street.

The next thing he does? Tell a graffiti artist painting a mural of Peter Parker’s Spider-Man to “leave space for the other guy”.
