It’s wonderful to see his passion and drive for playing as Morales, and hopefully that full energy will be transferred into his performance. However, this isn’t Jeter’s first foray into videogame voice actor, as he also played as Sam from The Last of Us.
Recently, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales has been revealed to take place one year after the events of the original Spider-Man title. The official PS5 boxart was also revealed, which looks extra sleek and stylish. And as we’ve found out, the title will boast an optional performance mode that will allow the game to run at 60 frames per second at 4K resolution.
Insomniac Games also released high resolution screenshots so fans can take a closer look at the lovely next-gen graphics in all its PS5 glory. And Miles’ new adventure is not the only game Insomniac revealed during the PS5 event. Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart was announced with a dynamic gameplay trailer.
Recently there had been some confusion as to whether Miles Morales was a standalone title or more of a DLC expansion. Originally Simon Rutter, Sony’s EVP head of European business, spoke to the Telegraph (in an article that’s behind a paywall) and clarified that the Marvel’s Spider-Man game trailer that was shown that night was not a sequel.
However, Insomniac took to Twitter the very next day to make it extremely clear that Spider-Man: Miles Morales is a fully standalone game. That it’s not merely an expansion to the previous title, but is instead an experience all of its own.
The original Marvel’s Spider-Man title, which came out back in 2018 and starred Peter Parker, reviewed quite well with us. In fact we awarded the title a perfect score while stating “Marvel’s Spider-Man is the crown jewel of Insomniac Games’ long history of success and a true homage to one of the most beloved characters of all time.”
