Sony has announced a new addition to its exclusive Spider-Man series, with a standalone Miles Morales game set to launch with the PS5 console in late 2020.

The first game received critical acclaim from fans and critics alike when it first released on PS4, with players taking control of Peter Parker in an open-world New York City.

During the game’s storyline, Parker encounters a young man called Miles Morales, who many Spider-Man fans will recognize as an alternate character known for playing the masked crusader, and even featured in his own feature film, the beloved Spider-Man: Into The SpiderVerse. Now, players will get the opportunity to play as Miles in a new stand-alone title coming to PlayStation 5.

The fresh trailer debuted as part of Sony’s PlayStation 5 reveal event and features Morales swinging around New York City in the winter, indicating that some time has passed since the first game.

Notably absent from the trailer is Peter Parker, so it will be interesting to see if players end up taking control of him in any capacity in this new game, or if it will solely focus on Miles.

Despite some confusion that this was an expansion, Insomniac have confirmed that Miles Morales is a stand-alone title, and is not an expansion to a remastered version of the original Spider-Man game.

While the trailer didn’t show off much in the way of gameplay, we did get a glimpse of some new weather and what seems to be a dynamic day-night cycle as well as some of Miles’ abilities in combat.

The game released in 2018 and developed by Insomniac Games, did have certain sections where they played as Miles Morales, though never as Spider-Man. The title ended on a cliffhanger with the sequel’s title character revealing his powers to Peter Parker.

Spider-Man has sold over 10 million units worldwide since its release including both digital and physical copies, leaving fans excited for the sequel, coming Holiday 2020.

Overwatch player’s dad goes viral after recreating every hero emote

One Overwatch player’s dad has gone viral for recreating emotes for all of the game’s original heroes and has given us inspiration for a fantastic Reinhardt skin idea all at the same time.

Over the years the emotes of Overwatch heroes have been recreated and memed countless times, but you don’t often see the kind of dedication required to attempt one from each hero in a single go.

But, that’s just what one YouTuber Nick Luciano and his dad did in a video using various household items that’s once again making the rounds on Reddit, and we have to say that Reinhardt impression is still one of the best we’ve ever seen.

Masterfully replacing the rocket hammer for an electric weed wacker, Luciano’s father knocks it out of the park with moves that could have been the motion capture for the character himself, before realizing his neighbor was watching and trying to laugh it off with a casual “hey Carl!”

To be fair the clip at the top of the game’s subreddit is more than three years old at this point, but pops has been hard at work recreating all kinds of emotes and poses from various titles on YouTube since, Overwatch included.

What you won’t see in the Reddit post are the additional emotes performed by Luciano’s dad, released a year later. Who knew that all it took was a back pillow to make a perfect D.Va costume in just a few seconds?

Obviously, he’s not a professional YouTuber, so there’s no real regular upload schedule or any kind of consistency, but for this kind of great content, that’s just fine. He probably has dad stuff to do as well, such as mowing the lawn, and organizing various shelves in the garage.

With Overwatch 2 right on the horizon, and hopefully a new game’s worth of emotes coming along with it, Luciano and his pops will hopefully find the time to record even more hilarious imitations in the backyard.
