It might not be the Spider-Man game everyone is expecting, but Spider-Man Miles Morales is still highly anticipated. Just recently, Sony gave out fantastic news for those planning to play the game on the PlayStation 4 first.
The transition into a new generation has always been challenging in gaming. For the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, the issue is that some games are going to be available on both platforms, but developers don’t know how to execute it just yet. For Insomniac Games’ Spider-Man Miles Morales, the path is certainly clear.
Save transfer confirmed
In response to a tweet, Insomniac Games’ James Stevenson has confirmed that players can transfer their saves of the game from the PlayStation 4 to the PlayStation 5. This basically means that every progress of the players will be transferable as well.
What’s even better is that Stevenson confirmed that players aren’t required to be a PS Plus subscriber to access the feature via cloud saving. This is excellent news considering that some players might be opting to skip out on the PlayStation 5 initially when it launches this Nov. 12.
A lot of games with a PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 versions haven’t been confirmed to have transferable saves yet. Players aren’t happy with this as they are planning on eventually making the transition to the next generation as well. For now, at least it’s good that Spider-Man Miles Morales is set to have this great feature.
Insomniac Games has confirmed that the upcoming title won’t be a full game. It will instead be something in the vein of Uncharted Lost Legacy. While it does pick up where the last game left, the game’s length will be generally shorter. However, we’ve yet to know exactly how short the game will be. Some suggest that it can be at least 10 hours or less.
As the next one to don the Spider-Man mantle, Miles Morales will offer a completely different playstyle. He will rely on his tech a lot, which allows him to go invisible for some time. Some of Mile’s other abilities include using electricity to shock groups of enemies too. Like Peter Parker, Miles Morales will have access to acrobatic moves also.
This news for Spider-Man Miles Morales is big for those who are skipping on the PlayStation 5’s launch. Hopefully, more developers make this a practice as it will be useful for those who are still saving up for the next generation of consoles.
