Since launching to critical acclaim in November 2020, things have been a little quiet for spin-off Spider-Man: Miles Morales other than a 60fps ray tracing mode in December.
However, that has all changed thanks to a recent update from Insomniac Games, which has followed the lead of Spiderman PS4 by giving out a brand new DLC suit.
Players can get the Advanced Tech Suit completely free in update 1.09, as well as an exclusive PS5 feature along with the usual bug fixes.
Spider-Man Miles Morales 1.09 update patch notes
The big news from this update is, of course, the new Advanced Tech Suit, which has a similar look to the Iron Spider suit worn by Peter Parker in the PS4 game. It is the first DLC suit for Spider-Man: Miles Morales and is free for all players.

The PS5 edition will also exclusively receive “realistic muscle deformation on select suits”, meaning Miles’s muscles will move more realistically under the suits – now that’s attention to detail.
Then there are of course the routine bug fixes – see below for full details:
- Added ZivaRT support to the Classic, Great Responsibility, Winter, Uptown Pride and Advanced Tech Suits on PS5

The update is available now, having gone live on 30th March 2021. It’s not a hefty update either – you’re looking at about 300 MB on both PS4 and PS5.
