5. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales trailer
Whereas launch video games like Deathloop and Kena: Bridge of Spirits have been delayed, the PS5 nonetheless has its greatest launch unique intact: Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
We are actually over two years out from the unique recreation’s launch, and this title is ready to proceed that saga whereas placing the deal with Miles Morales, a playable supporting character within the first recreation who’s now a superhero in his personal proper. When it was initially introduced, it was solely with a imprecise teaser trailer, however a extra official story-focused trailer throughout this presentation can be a wise transfer for Sony.
Following the PS5 Showcase’s affirmation, Insomniac tweeted about how the sport “is realized in 4K HDR on PS5. See reflections with ray-tracing, and improved lighting, shadow, and character element.” As its a launch unique we nonetheless do not know a lot about, it is going to nearly definitely reappear on this PS5 Showcase in some capability.
