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.

With the PlayStation 5 release of Spider-Man: Miles Morales including a remastered version of the base game, which is also available on PC, there's never been a better excuse to return to the open world of Marvel's Spider-Man. If you're looking to really test your spider skills, the toughest are the challenges set up by a bad guy known as the Taskmaster. Supposedly used to test Spider-Man's abilities in an elaborate attempt to defeat him, these mini-games offer an important reward: Challenge Tokens -- a currency used for some of Spidey's equipment upgrades and new suit purchases. That means you'll want to complete the Taskmaster's jobs, and what's more, you'll want to be good at them.

Taskmaster Challenges have three tiers: Amazing (bronze), Spectacular (silver), and Ultimate (gold). The Amazing tier earns you one token, the Spectacular rewards two, and you get a total of three tokens for achieving Ultimate. This means doing well can reward you with a bunch of key tokens at once. Getting those Golds is a serious undertaking though, requiring pitch-perfect fighting and swinging on Spider-Man's part. We've put together some tips and tricks for completing each of the Taskmaster's challenge types so you can shortcut the grind to Gold and get your upgrades quicker.

Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered on PC makes me excited for Sony games again
marvels spider man pc steam deck impressions msmr hero

When I got my review code for the PC version of Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, I was about to leave for a weeklong vacation. Normally, that would be bad news. With no gaming laptop, I’d have to wait until I got back home to test it out, before rushing out some impressions in a few days. But that wasn’t the case this time. In fact, the timing couldn’t have been better … thanks to my Steam Deck.

While the PC version of Insomniac's hit superhero game comes with a list of flashy improvements, its Steam Deck verification status is the most exciting one. That meant that I could take a supersized open-world game on the go and casually poke away at it for minutes at a time, rather than sitting at my PS5 or PC for long sessions.
