A new look at Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales teases more about the young hero’s story in this universe.

After it was announced Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales will arrive as a PlayStation 5 exclusive, fans were immediately excited to see the hero’s story explored further after he had a supporting role in the first game and its downloadable content. Voice actor Nadji Jeter even explained how important the role of Miles Morales is to him back in July. But a new preview from EW revealed a little more about his arc in the upcoming game thanks to creative director Brian Horton.

“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. When we started crafting it we realized that, with a little bit more of a compact storytelling style, we could tell a very emotionally impactful story that would fit really well as an experience that would take Spider-Man 1 and [Miles Morales] and do justice to this character.”

Brian Horton went on to explain what makes Miles Morales so different compared to Peter Parker, explaining that the circumstances of his family-orientated upbringing makes him a more open type of hero, one that isn’t afraid of bringing friends into both worlds. We know that the game is its own stand-alone story and follows Miles as he goes up against a high-tech gang of criminals.

“[Miles] is more so born out of family. What I think is really compelling about Miles as a character is he has friends that he could actually let into his world — his human world and his Spider world. He’s a little different in the way he approaches it.”
