A year after the first game's conclusion, Miles has fully integrated himself into the role of a Spider-Man and is defending both his new home in Harlem and the rest of New York City from a gang war between the Roxxon Energy Corporation and a high-tech criminal army called Underground led by the Tinkerer. Parker tells Miles that he has to be like his late father and walk on the path to becoming a hero for the city of New York."

An open-world action-adventure game, Spider-Man: Miles Morales continues with the gameplay mechanics that made the first Spider-Man game on the PS4 such a success. So you will be able to swing about the city and take on various bad guys with your web-slinging skills – but with some fun additions as, while he may have also been bitten by a genetically-enhanced spider, Miles has several different powers to Peter Parker.
