The combat in Marvel's Spider-Man starts simply, but as you progress and unlock more gadgets, it becomes surprisingly complex. The end result is satisfying, forcing you to combine various powers with dodges, takedowns, and aerial attacks. For Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Insomniac Games is augmenting this already fun system with Miles' unique abilities, making it even more varied.

In the above video, game director Cameron Christian talks about the difference the new hero's powers make to combat. If the first game was mostly about attacking single targets, Miles Morales folds in more area-of-effect abilities, letting you tackle groups more effectively. You can see this in action in the clip, where Miles uses his electrical powers to affect several baddies at once.

Additionally, new suit mods can enhance stealth as well as offence. One shown is a mod that tells you if enemies will notice your stealth takedowns, indicated by lines connecting the characters. It sounds as though there's going to be even more to toy with during combat as you unlock Miles' upgrades and gadgets. We can't wait to get our hands on the game and try it out ourselves.
