The release of the Playstation 5, Sony’s next-generation gaming platform is less than a month away and one of the most highly anticipated games available upon launch will be PS5 exclusive Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales (which just revealed two new in-game suits for Miles on Wednesday, the follow-up to best-selling Playstation 4 Marvel’s Spider-Man game. To celebrate, Marvel is putting out a set of five variant covers for select Amazing Spider-Man and Miles Morales: Spider-Man issues which will correlate to the PS5 game and some of which were conceived by the artists from the game itself.
“Just as Marvel’s Spider-Man was a love letter to Peter Parker and his web-slinging alter-ego, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales celebrates every aspect of this break-out hero of a new generation,” said Marvel Games VP & head of creative Bill Rosemann. “Continuing that tradition of authenticity, the teams at Insomniac Games, PlayStation, and Marvel Games have united to spotlight the amazing behind-the-scenes artists who are bringing this action-packed game to life. What’s especially meaningful about this series of variant covers is that, if viewed in a particular order, they showcase our collective commitment to storytelling.”
