Spider-Cat is the best reason yet to get hyped for Spider-Man: Miles Morales

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is getting a game-changing new feature: Spider-Cat. The PlayStation 5 launch game gives players a new costume that allows players to carry around a heroic orange cat who can help Miles in combat.

The news comes from Game Informer, which shared an exclusive first look at the feline. In the clip, Miles saves the cat during a mission and returns it to a relieved bodega owner. Once rescued, Miles can don a backpack that Spider-Cat hangs out in (the costume also appears to deck Miles out with a big red hoodie). The tabby even gets its own little Spider-Cat mask.

It’s an absolutely precious sight, but it’s not just a cute cosmetic. The video shows the cat helping Miles out during a finishing move. As he takes down a bad guy, Spider-Cat heroically leaps from Miles’ backpack and delivers a series of devastating swipes to the criminal’s face.

The cat backpack is just one of many costumes recently revealed for the game. Spider-Man: Miles Morales is getting a suit that looks similar to the one worn by Miles in Spider-Man: Inot The Spider-Verse. Players can also access a suit that looks like it belongs at an EDM concert, complete with a high-tech fishbowl helmet, glowing fingertips, and a “cool S” emblazoned on the suit’s shoulders. All in all, the game looks like it will have some memorable costumes for players to test out.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales launches alongside the PlayStation 5 on November 12, and will be available for both current and next-generation PlayStation owners.

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.

All suits in Spider-Man 2 and how to get them
Peter and Miles standing on a bridge

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. Oh, and did we mention Miles has his own extensive set of suits as well? Just like the first game, you won't be handed the keys to the wardrobe for free. Each suit not only needs to be unlocked but also crafted using City and Hero Tokens, as well as Tech parts to get access to the additional styles most suits have. If you're itching to dress up as the Spider-Man of your dreams as soon as you can, here is every suit in Spider-Man 2 and how you unlock them.

Note: Some suits are unlocked via story progress and could be considered spoilers. You have been warned.

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.
