Insomniac teases high-end shadows and lighting on PS5 ahead of Wednesday's big new event.
Complete with ray-traced visuals and next-gen atmospheric fog, shadow, and lighting enhancements, high-end textures, and ultra-fast loading, Spider-Man: Miles Morales should exemplify the PS5's power at launch. While we haven't seen official gameplay footage just yet, Insomniac teases a glimpse at Miles Morales' eye-popping visuals.
The footage is simply a 1-second clip looped over and over in a GIF, but it's enough to get fans riled up. There's real-time fog effects as Miles exhales in the cold city, dynamic lighting bounces off of every surface, motion is smooth and clear, and you can even see how the lighting passes through the car's exhaust as it moves. There's plumes of exhaled breath from the passersby and the characters move so realistically.
The brief snippet reflects the kind of next-gen visuals we saw in the impressive new Spider-Man screenshot, which clearly shows massive improvements over atmospheric effects.
Insomniac will show off more Miles Morales gameplay on PlayStation 5 during the big show on Wednesday, September 16 at 1PM PST / 3PM EST.
