Spider-Man: Miles Morales was one of the biggest reveals during last month’s PlayStation 5 live event, yet it’s already raising eyebrows. The game was announced in a pretty confusing way, with a trailer that suggested the adventure is a fully-fledged new AAA experience before some serious backpedaling happened.
Following the reveal, there was some confusion over whether Miles Morales would be DLC, before it was clarified that the game will be a “standalone expansion,” similar to Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.
For those who’ve played The Lost Legacy, it’s a 7-10 hour game which explores a whole story arc, separate to that of the mainline UC adventures. It’s hovered in price since its launch in 2017, but can now usually be found for around the £10 GBP mark (with a little luck, that is).
Insomniac has since doubled down on its comparison of Miles Morales and The Lost Legacy, with creative director Brian Horton writing a blog post on the game and what we can expect.
In the post, Horton confirms that Miles Morales will be roughly the same “scope” as The Lost Legacy, potentially pegging it at anywhere between seven and 10 hours long, according to HowLongToBeat.com.
“We know a lot of you want to know how big this game is. Our team at Insomniac has been working incredibly hard to bring you a fantastic Miles Morales adventure since we concluded development on Marvel’s Spider-Man,” says the post.
“You’ll experience a full story arc with Miles, one that’s more akin to a game like Uncharted: The Lost Legacy in terms of overall scope. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is an important, heartfelt, emotional and essential experience to expanding the Marvel’s Spider-Man universe. And we hope it will be for you as well.”
Of course this has yet to be confirmed, though it does make sense considering this is a PlayStation 5 game which hasn’t been in development for the years and years that it usually takes to craft a full-fledged AAA experience.
Personally, I’m super hyped for Miles Morales…as long as the price point reflects the length and replayability of the game.
