'Spider-Man: Miles Morales' Will Have Zero Loading Screens On PlayStation 5

With Spider-Man: Miles Morales launching on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 next month, you might be wondering whether to go for the current-gen version or make a next-gen leap of faith with the webslinger. While there are certainly benefits to both options, the PS5 version comes with some particularly tempting bells and whistles that are getting harder and harder to say no to.

An in-depth report from GameInformer has outlined many of those temptations in detail, and even provided a few new arguments as to why PS5 should be where you're playing Spider-Man: Miles Morales if at all possible. The publication recently went hands-on with the superhero game running on the next-gen console, and industry insider Shinobi602 has outlined the key takeaways on Twitter.


In terms of PS5-specfic details, Miles Morales obviously runs a heck of a lot better on the next-gen hardware. Players will be able to choose between Performance Mode (dynamic 4K/60fps) or Fidelity Mode (4K/30fps/other improved visual features). A lot of fuss has also once again been made in regards to the next-gen ray-tracing and all the shiny graphical flourishes this enables.

We knew most of that, of course. What I'm really excited about is the idea that Miles Morales features zero loading screens, even when fast traveling. I have no idea why you'd ever want to fast travel when you can spin webs and soar through the skies of Manhattan, but it's good to know that booting up the game or heading into buildings to take on combat challenges won't be met with a lengthy loading screen. As handsome as the loading screens in Marvel's Spider-Man were, they did tend to drag a bit, and I'm a busy guy.

The report also revealed more details on the game's story, and fans will be glad to know that Peter Parker does feature a fair bit. With that said, this is still Miles' story at heart, and to that end he'll be the only playable character in the game.

Finally, we can expect a new photo mode, complete with customisable lighting effects, new borders, selfie poses, and other neat touches. While I've yet to get my sweaty hands on the game myself, I'm already pretty pumped up for what sounds like a fully improved successor to one of my favourite titles of 2018.
