The PC version of Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales was a solid port at launch, but even a great thing can be further improved. Yesterday, the developer released the first patch for the web-swinging game. People with mid-range hardware will be happy with this one.

The biggest change is made to cutscenes as their lighting was adjusted to better match the original game; overall cutscenes performance was improved as well. The developer claims that during testing, they saw a 7% increase in performance with recommended specs at medium presets. This means your FPS gain might differ.

The quality of objects in ray-traced reflections was improved and ray-traced shadows were made better looking. Using dynamic resolution scaling on Intel Arc GPUs won’t cause image corruption issues anymore, and stability improvements and optimizations were implemented as well.

You can read the patch notes below.

  • Various visual improvements to ray-traced shadows.
  • Improved quality of certain objects in ray-traced reflections.
  • Adjusted lighting in cutscenes to match the original game.
  • Improved cutscene performance.
  • Addressed a bug that could cause image corruption on Intel ARC GPUs when using Dynamic Resolution Scaling.
  • Stability improvements and optimizations.
A List of Known Issues
Air horn
  • Some players are reporting they hear an unintended 'air horn' noise at certain points in the game. We have been able to reproduce the issue and are working on a fix.
Intel XeSS image quality
  • Intel is aware of some graphical artifacts that can occur while using XeSS. Intel is investigating these issues and working on improving image quality in future versions.

The complete patch notes are available on Steam. You can also read the list of known issues here.
