Last month, Sony announced its plans to include Spider-Man: Miles Morales among the launch lineup for Playstation 5. The standalone follow up to Marvel’s Spider-Man will put Peter Parker’s protégé, Miles Morales, in the spotlight. But a new console means new packaging for the games. Today, Sony’s Official Playstation blog offered fans a first-look at the new PS5 packaging by revealing the box art for Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
It’s pretty similar to the PS4 game packages, with a white background on top instead of red. The cover art itself is fairly minimal. It’s just a solo image of Miles in costume, with his Venom blast charging up in his right hand.
Back in June, Insomniac Games creative director Bryan Intihar revealed that the new Spidey game takes place around a year after the original.
“[Spider-Man: Miles Morales] is an important, heartfelt, emotional and essential experience to expanding the Marvel’s Spider-Man universe.,” wrote Intihar. “It’s now wintertime, about a year after the events of the first game. Marvel’s New York is covered in snow, and just before Christmas break, a war between an energy corporation and a high-tech criminal army has broken out. Miles’s new home in Harlem is at the heart of the battle.”
Intihar also assured fans that “Peter Parker is OK. Don’t worry, we still have much of Peter’s story left to tell. But this game is all about Miles, a critical part of our Spider-Man universe, and you won’t want to miss what happens.”
