The game will be set during winter with Miles sporting his traditional red and black suit from the comics. So far no story details have been revealed about the game but it seems that New York is under some unknown threat and Peter isn’t able to assist meaning this will be the chance Miles needs to prove himself. The trailer begins with Miles slowly losing his suit from some kind of electrical attack with Peter telling him that “A hero is just someone who doesn’t give up, your dad said that. He was right, now it’s your turn go be a hero Miles”. At the end of Marvel’s Spider-man, which released back in 2018, it was shown that Miles received superpowers after being bitten by an Oscorp spider during the main campaign. During the City that Never Sleeps DLC which took place over 3 separate level packs it was shown that Peter was training Miles but no word on how much time has passed since.
