Spider-Man: Miles Morales is easily one of the PS5’s most anticipated releases, and Marvel will be celebrating that with a new set of variants.
Miles to go
If you’ve seen the trailers for Spider-Man: Miles Morales, then you already know all about how great it’s looking. One of the newer titles announced for the upcoming PS5, Miles Morales is a kind of Spider-Man 1.5. It follows up on the original PS4 game, but isn’t a full-on sequel.
From Insomniac, the game shakes up that original’s formula with not only a new title hero, but also new powers. And if you’re on the fence about next-gen consoles, it might be the game that pushes you over that edge.
One thing that MM definitely is? That’d be one of Sony’s bigger releases of the year, and a tentpole event for Marvel Comics. So you better believe the publisher will be getting the word out. As such, there’s an array of special variant covers coming to Marvel’s Spider-Man books next month, in November.
Marvel Games’ Bill Rosemann explains:
“Just as Marvel’s Spider-Man was a love letter to Peter Parker and his web-slinging alter-ego, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales celebrates every aspect of this break-out hero of a new generation,” said Marvel Games VP & head of creative Bill Rosemann. “Continuing that tradition of authenticity, the teams at Insomniac Games, PlayStation, and Marvel Games have united to spotlight the amazing behind-the-scenes artists who are bringing this action-packed game to life. What’s especially meaningful about this series of variant covers is that, if viewed in a particular order, they showcase our collective commitment to storytelling.”
As Rosemann explains, “First, we have the AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #53.LR cover by Insomniac Games art director Jason Hickey, which joins Miles as he looks down upon an NYC infected by the new threat of Tinkerer and the Underground.”
“Then we see the AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #53 cover by Marvel Games creative director Tim Tsang capturing the moment when Miles makes the heroic decision to mask up, rise up, and defend his home and his loved ones.
“Next it’s the MILES MORALES: SPIDER-MAN #21 cover by Insomniac Games senior concept artist Nicholas Schumaker showcasing the speed and agility of Miles as he hurtles towards danger.
“Finally, the AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #54 cover by Insomniac Games art director Gavin Goulden places us in the collision between Miles and the Tinkerer as they battle for the fate of the city. An entire saga in four images… with one more cover yet to be revealed!”Marvel Comics press release
