Insomniac's Spider-Man: Miles Morales will have an optional 4K/60FPS performance mode


Likely along with a ‘better visual’ 4K mode

As we’ve established,Spider-Man: Miles Morales, launching in the fourth quarter on the PS5, seems to be akin to an Uncharted: Lost Legacyor inFamous: First Lightpseudo-sequel. But now Insomniac is drip-feeding a bit more information as time goes on, most notably, what we can expect out of the game’s performance.

You may recall that a tech demo of Spider-Manrunning on the PS5 was one of the best things Sony used to boast about their new console, and that work is paying off based on a new tweet from Insomniac. The developer shared this morning that on PS5, Miles Moraleswill support a 4K/60FPS “performance mode.”

What does this mean? Well, it seems as if the tweet implies that 4K/60FPS is the standard for the game, but also possibly confirms an additional “4K/30FPS” mode that involves greater details like better lightning (and maybe a bit of all the Ray Tracing effects we’ve been hearing so much about). It’s unclear for now (and we’ve reached out to Sony for clarification), but 60FPS at the very least as a “performance” concession is good news for action fans.
