Insomniac Games has revealed new information about what to expect from Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales.

After the surprise announcement of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales for the PS5, new details about the story have been revealed by Insomniac Games. While there was some confusion about whether it was an expansion on the original title, it was later confirmed that Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is its own standalone game. It’s now been revealed that the game takes place a year after the first game, following Miles in Harlem.

Alongside a new video explaining why Insomniac Games focused on Miles Morales, Creative Director Brian Horton discussed the new story details on the PlayStation blog, revealing the young hero has to step in between a criminal army armed with high-tech weapons and an energy corporation as their conflict engulfs Harlem. Given that the Roxxon Energy Corporation made an appearance in the first game, it’s likely that it’ll make return for Miles’ standalone adventure.

“It’s now wintertime, about a year after the events of the first game. Marvel’s New York is covered in snow, and just before Christmas break, a war between an energy corporation and a high-tech criminal army has broken out. Miles’s new home in Harlem is at the heart of the battle.”

For fans wondering if the focus on Miles means that Peter Parker is dead much like in the Ultimate comics, Horton reassured them saying “Don’t worry, we still have much of Peter’s story left to tell.” Take a look at the video below.
