Spider-Man: Miles Morales – How to Change Time of Day

Web-slinging when it's snowing. How magical!

Now that Spider-Man: Miles Morales has been released, both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 users can web-sling through the streets of New York and revel at the breathtaking sights! With a new update to the game happening not long ago that adds multiple new mechanics, the first is a photo mode; the second is switching between day and night.

Spider-Man Miles Morales How to Change Time of Day

To change the time of day in Spider-Man: Miles Morales, you need to have first completed the game. You cannot do this manually if you have not. Once you have, you can head to the options menu, and under Game, the option at the top allows you to switch to the time of day you want manually.

Update: It seems that the change of day function only works for the PlayStation 5 version. From the comments of this article who have 100% Miles Morales on the PlayStation 4, the option does not come available. It's only for the PlayStation 5 version.

The first thing you need to do is to finish the game, as this is the only way to unlock this option in the settings menu. Luckily, it doesn't take too long to beat Spider-Man: Miles Morales, so you should have this feature unlocked in no time at all!

After you have beaten it, hit the options menu you bring up the pause screen, scroll down to settings, then click Game. At the very top of the Game options screen should be the newly added Time of Day option. Here you can change the time of day to four different times:

  • Day
  • Night
  • Sunset
  • Overcast (Snow)

Change to the time you want, click X. A window will appear informing you that by changing the time, it will load you back at the last checkpoint the game saved at. Apply the settings if you are happy with reloading, then when the checkpoint has loaded, the time will have changed depending on what you have selected.

Here's how to unlock Miles Morales iconic suit from Into the Spider-Verse, for those who are lost without it! Wondering where Peter Parker is or how to turn off podcasts? We've got you covered!

Hey, my name is Mark, and I'm a video game enthusiast! My earliest memory was playing Worms on the Amiga against my Godmother, yes the Amiga, massive box type thing, needed eighty-five thousand floppy disks to play one game, maybe a slight exaggeration. Ah, those were the days! I love RPG’s, and The Legend of Zelda series. Dogs are pretty awesome.

  1. It worked on my ps4 pro, i tried before and nothing happened but now it works!

    1. That is really odd! Was there an update? Or did it just start working?

  2. I just finished the spider man miles morales game and all side missions . my progress was 100 percent . when i had completed the game i went to settings and hit game setting and at the very top it should say time of day. but it doesn’t show up. & i tried closing the game ) restarting the ps4 and it still doesn’t say time of day . what should i do ?

    1. From the comments down below, we believe it’s only available for the PlayStation 5 version, which is quite terrible for PlayStation 4 users, in all honesty.

  3. I own the PS4 version, and I don’t have the option. I make sure to keep my games up to date, so I don’t know what the issue is. This really sucks because the reason I want to change the time of day is because my PS4 lags during Sunset, so it’s weird that PS5 would get it before PS4 when they wouldn’t have that issue.

    1. I think it’s just Sony pushing the PS5 even more and forgetting about the PS4 version, it seems, which is not fair. As plenty of people, no doubt wanted a PS5, but due to the stock levels couldn’t get one!

  4. I’ve got the PS4 copy of the game, and I’ve 100% the save file and it still doesn’t have the option to change the time of day. I will say I can’t update anything, due to having no internet where I live currently. If that is a reason I don’t have that option.

    1. I’m 100% sure it was a day one patch, so if the option isn’t available, I’m pretty sure that’s the case. It’ll be incredibly weird if the PS4 version didn’t have the option, but the PS5 version did.
