Spider-Man: Miles Morales Patch Adds New, Free Advanced Tech Suit, PS5 Muscle Deformation
The Advanced Tech Suit might go nicely with a new graphical feature that Insomniac Games says is exclusive to PS5.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales developer Insomniac Games has revealed a brand-new suit for PS4 and PS5 players to equip. You won't have to wait to try on the new suit, because the update adding Miles' new look came right alongside the announcement.
The Advanced Tech Suit equips Miles with an incredibly shiny and futuristic look, like that of Peter Parker's in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The colors represent the familiar black and red stylings of Miles' signature look, while also looking like it could have come out of a Tony Stark lab. Check it out below.
The new suit comes to the game alongside a new update, which Insomniac says addresses some lingering issues across both platforms. Exclusive to PS5 players, however, is a new graphical feature that will allow for accurate muscle deformation of specific suits. The exact ones weren't shared, which might give you an excuse to try out even more of your favorites beyond the new Advanced Tech Suit to see it in action.
Rolling out today, our new #MilesMoralesPS4 #MilesMoralesPS5 update adds the Advanced Tech Suit and includes various fixes. Additionally on PS5 only, the update adds realistic muscle deformation on select suits. pic.twitter.com/1nnSvgJB2P— Insomniac Games (@insomniacgames) March 30, 2021
Lead character technical director Josh DiCarlo answered a fan on Twitter who was wondering exactly what this muscle deformation is. He said that now deformations on the surface of Miles' costumes is "the result of muscle and cloth simulation." It should add that much more detail, on top of a game that already had some slick-looking Spidey suits.
We've fully simulated the entire character from the inside-out, using techniques previously only available in film. Every deformation that you see on the surface of the costume is the result of muscle and cloth simulation.— Josh DiCarlo (@thejoshdicarlo) March 30, 2021
Spider-Man: Miles Morales launched with the PS5 back in November, acting as a follow-up to 2018's Spider-Man on PS4. It follows Miles Morales after the events of the first game, this time during a winter in New York that sees Peter Parker on a leave of absence.
