Insomniac shows off ‘Spider-Verse’ suit coming to Spider-Man: Miles Morales

Insomniac Games showed off Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales‘ new suit based on Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. As you’d expect, it comes with its own animation style, as well as comic book sound-effect bubbles.

A new 11-minute video shows the suit in action, and it looks like it’s plucked directly from the film. While wearing the suit, Miles’ movements mirror those seen in the film. The animation is executed at a lower frame rate than the game to simulate the animated film’s style.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse production designer Justin K. Thompson explains that the suit mimics the film’s method of “animating on twos.” That’s a technique where every frame of an animation is actually used twice, cutting down on the number of drawings needed per second. For instance, if it’s running at 24 frames per second animation, only 12 unique drawings are used.

The suit also adds comic book style pop-ups when the player hits an enemy. The video shows Miles punching a group of enemies as sound-effect words like pow and thwack appear on-screen in word bubbles.

The suit is available as a bonus for anyone who pre-orders the game on PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5. Insomniac says that the suit will eventually be available to everyone at a later date. Players who pre-order will also receive the T.R.A.C.K. suit, created by Marvel artist Javier Garrón.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales will give fans plenty of choices when it comes to Spidey suits. Insomniac recently showed off a new costume that gives players an adorable bodega cat, which can also attack enemies, as a companion. The game launches alongside the PlayStation 5 on November 12.

Where to find Aunt May’s grave in Spider-Man 2
Peter visiting his aunt and uncle's graves.

Peter Parker has had a hard life. He was orphaned by his parents as a child and raised by his caring Aunt May and Uncle Ben, only for Ben to be killed in an act that would shape Spider-Man's entire philosophy as a hero. Things only get worse during the events of the first act of Insomniac's Spider-Man 2 as Aunt May is tragically killed as well, leaving Peter with no more true parental figures. Peter hasn't forgotten all his caring aunt and uncle have done for him, and if you can find their gravesite, he will pay them respect, as well as earn you a Trophy. It's a big graveyard, though, and their site isn't marked on the map. Here's where Uncle Ben and Aunt May's graves are located in Spider-Man 2.
How to find Aunt May and Uncle Ben's graves

The graveyard is located at the most-northeastern point on the New York map in Harlem. If you have unlocked fast travel in this district, you can warp almost directly to the spot. Once in the graveyard, go forward down the middle into the open field. You might spot Mile's father's grave first. May and Ben's graves are directly to the right of that.

In the decades that the character of Spider-Man has existed, through comics, TV shows, games, and movies, he's gone through quite a few suits. Spider-Man 2 keeps the tradition alive by not only giving him a new suit to try out, but dozens and dozens of older ones to let you play as your favorite version of the webslinger.

How to solve molecular identification puzzles in Spider-Man 2
Peter and Miles leaping in the air in the city.

The character of Spider-Man is only half of what makes him so interesting. Peter Parker, the man behind the mask, is just as vital to the story as his alter ego in Spider-Man 2. Just as he is in the comics and the first game, Peter is a scientist by trade, and Miles Morales is following in his footsteps in many ways, which is the perfect excuse to introduce some new science-focused puzzles into the game. One new puzzle has you examining different scenes to try and work out what exactly happened so you can determine the materials that were left behind. This puzzle is thrown at the player rather quickly and without much explanation, so we're here to brush up your molecular knowledge so you can solve these with ease.
