Confirming what is previously touted as the functionality that cuts offloading screens for a smooth gameplay experience, reports claim that Spider-Man: Miles Morales highlights the said advantage.
One of the sources of the take is GameInformer, who managed a hands-on experience with the game on the actual console. The published magazine is not free access as it requires a subscription.
However, gaming insider and Twitter user, Shinobi602, took the effort to summarize the content of the piece. In a tweet, he lays out all of the magazine’s impressions over the game’s real-time performance on PS5.
First in the list is a reference to PlayStation 5’s Performance Mode, which shows a steady 60 FPS at 4K resolution. It is worth noting, however, that this is a state where the PS5 compromises on graphics to boost the game’s performance.
Curious as to how the game will look like in all its visual glory, GameInformer tested the game with the PS5’s Fidelity Mode. While the game’s performance significantly dropped to half the optimum frames, it shows embellishment in the graphics department.
Particularly, the presence of improved lighting, imagery, etc., all at 4K resolution. The added visual enhancements are amazing enough; it seems that the magazine tells its praise for it.
But if visuals alone do not impress, then the game’s seemingly absent loading time probably will. This appears to not really exists for the game, cutting off the need to wait at any point in the game. The idea seems to apply even when using the game’s fast traveling feature.
Story and gameplay
The demo revealed more than how the game would feel like on the next-gen console, with GameInformer unveiling a few things about the game’s story and gameplay. Although Miles Morales would indeed be this iteration of Spider-Man’s protagonist, Peter Parker, would still be present in it. However, only Miles Morales will be playable in-game.
Designed to surpass its 2018 predecessor, Spider-Man: Miles Morales is also said to feature set pieces that are grander in scale than its predecessor.
A different spidey
Being a somewhat different Spider-Man than Parker, Miles Morales’ portrayal of the spandex-wearing superhero includes new skills not seen in the previous title. Most notable of which are Morales’ ability to attack opponents from the ceiling and walls and employ stealth capability through invisibility.
A step-up experience from the PS4, PS5’s DualSense controller gives players a more engaging experience through its advanced haptic feedback.
By the sounds of it, Spider-Man: Miles Morales is shaping up to take the throne on the next-gen platform that Marvel’s Spider-Man held in the PS4.
