The June announcement of the then-upcoming PC release of Spider-Man Remastered (opens in new tab) included word that the spin-off Spider-Man: Miles Morales was also coming our way. Today we got the details, including a swanky new trailer showing off all the visual enhancements in the PC version of the game and—this is the important bit—a launch date of November 18.

"Following the events of Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, teenager Miles Morales is adjusting to his new home while following in the footsteps of his mentor, Peter Parker, as a new Spider-Man," the Steam (opens in new tab) page says. "But when a fierce power struggle threatens to destroy his new home, the aspiring hero realizes that with great power, there must also come great responsibility. To save all of Marvel’s New York, Miles must take up the mantle of Spider-Man and own it."

Spider-Man is Spider-Man, but Miles Morales comes to the party with his own "explosive powers" that set him apart from Parker, including "unique, bio-electric venom blast attacks and covert camouflage," along with various other gadgets, skills, and "spectacular web-slinging acrobatics." 

The PC version of Spider-Man: Miles Morales will feature a range of enhancements, including support for ray tracing, ultra-wide monitors, and Nvidia's DLSS technology. "Extensive" customization options for mouse and keyboard, and controllers, are also available.

"In the graphics menu, you’ll find many customizable features, presets, and quality levels to choose from," Nixxes Software community manager Julian Huijbregts wrote in a PlayStation Blog post. "These include texture quality and filtering, level of detail, crowd and traffic density, field of view, windowed, full screen and exclusive full screen rendering modes, and many other options."
