You won’t have to wait long to play the other remastered Spider-Man game on your computer. Insomniac and Nixxes announced that Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be available on PC on November 18 through the Epic Games Store and Steam. The port offers visual upgrades beyond the PS5 version, including ray-traced shadows for outdoor lighting. It also supports PC-centric features, including ultra-wide monitors and DLSS 3 upscaling on GeForce RTX 40 cards. However, as you might guess, the graphical splendor comes at a price – you won’t pass up a system that’s years old.
Miles Morales plays on just a fourth-generation Intel Core i3 (or its AMD equivalent), 8GB of RAM, a GeForce GTX 950 card, and a conventional hard drive. You’ll be stuck at 720p with “very low” graphics settings, though. The recommendations jump to much more recent hardware (including an SSD) if you want a lot of detail, 4K, or some form of ray tracing. And be prepared to spend a small fortune if you want the “ultimate” ray-traced visuals. The developers recommend a 12th generation Core i7 or fifth generation Ryzen 9, RTX 3080 or Radeon RX 6950 XT video and 32 GB of RAM.
We wouldn’t buy a new PC just for Miles Morales. However, the game was easily one of the best PS5 launch titles. Although it’s shorter than the original Spider-Man, it’s full of well-developed characters and a lively neighborhood that you’ll want to save. Add in a few new mechanics (including invisibility and a bonus feline companion) and it’s worth a try, even if you’ve never played the first title.
