Brian Horton has dedicated himself to the question of whether other playable characters besides Miles Morales can be controlled in Spider-Man Miles Morales. To put it briefly: no.
Brian Horton, the creative director behind the upcoming Spider-Man Miles Morales, spoke to Game Informer about the game and the development process. Horton emphasized that the players in the new adventure will only play as Miles Morales. At the same time, he denied any rumors about the appearance of Peter Parker as a playable character in Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
In an interview, Horton explained that Miles is controlled “100 percent of the time” in the title. “We wanted to focus on the two parts of Miles. Miles as a kid, as a non-hero … and then we have, of course, all his superhero stuff. But really focusing on Miles allowed us to put maximum effort into delivering the best Miles experience we could,” said Horton.
Spider-Man Miles Morales is a 15-hour story-driven experience centered around Miles and the enemies he faces in New York around Christmas. More details on the game’s main antagonists are to be announced.
In the new adventure, teenage Miles Morales is faced with the task of settling into his new home as he follows in the footsteps of his mentor Peter Parker as the new Spider-Man. Ultimately, a sinister force threatens to destroy his new home, so that the protagonist takes on the great responsibility of saving New York.
The title reached gold status a few days ago and will be launched on November 12, 2020, for the PlayStation 4 as planned. The implementation for the PS5 will follow at the local launch of the next-generation console on November 12, 2020.
If you haven’t played Spider-Man from 2018, you can purchase the Ultimate Edition of Spider-Man Miles Morales and get both games in one package. The remaster of Spider-Man includes improvements over the original version of the game.
