Spider-Man: Miles Morales Update Adds New 60FPS/Ray Tracing Mode

Spider-Man: Miles Morales just got even better.

December 10, 2020

Alongside Demon’s Souls, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales was the most high profile PS5 launch title. A follow up to 2018’s PS4 hit, Marvel’s Spider-Man, Miles Morales follows the “new” Spidey as he gets to grips with his new powers, and responsibilities. The game offers a stunning take on New York City, with the power of the PS5 making it look better than ever before. Now, in a new update, however, developers Insomniac may have improved things further.

The game already boasted two different modes, a Fidelity Mode, which focused on graphical quality and included ray tracing but locked the game at 30FPS and a Performance Mode, which removed ray tracing but instead locked the game at a smooth 60FPS. Now, in the latest update, however, Spider-Man: Miles Morales has received a third mode, titled Performance RT.

This new mode gives players the best of both worlds. It includes the gorgeous ray tracing included in the Fidelity Mode, while also giving players that buttery smooth 60FPS of the Performance Mode. The new Performance RT mode doesn’t come without some sacrifices though, where the description in-game states that it achieves this new feat “by adjusting the scene resolution, reflection quality, and pedestrian density.”

Overall, we really enjoyed the game in our review, scoring it an 8/10, saying “Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is a worthy follow-up to the previous installment, even if a lot of the core DNA has remained the same. Despite some rough edges, the experience as a whole is one that’s hard to put down once you get entrenched.”

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is out now on both the PS4 and PS5, with the original title included in the Special Edition of the game.
