After an in-depth look at Insomniac’s newest Spider-Man adventure last night – Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales – it has been announced today that Marvel’s Spider-Man has been remastered for the PS5 and will be available to buy as part of an Ultimate Edition collection.
On the Sony PlayStation Blog, James Stevenson (Community Director at Insomniac Games) said this:
“On PS5, we are announcing an Ultimate Edition that includes a voucher code** for Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered. You’ll be able to experience the complete storyline up to this point, which includes the remaster of the original game and all three installments of the Marvel’s Spider-Man: The City That Never Sleeps DLC so you can play the full narrative arc”.
This will allow anyone to catch-up on Spider-Man and be right at home for Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
James also said:
“The remaster for the PS5 is no simple up-res, as many of the game’s art assets have been completely updated to take advantage of the PS5 console’s horsepower. You’ll see better-looking characters with improved skin, eyes, hair, and facial animation (including our new, next-generation Peter Parker). You’ll also see ray-traced reflections and ambient shadows, improved lighting, more pedestrians and vehicles stretching further into the distance, and the same optional performance mode offered on Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, allowing you to finally play the game at a targeted 60fps frame rate. We’ll be supporting near-instant loading, 3D audio, and the DualSense controller’s haptic feedback. Lastly we’re adding three amazing new Spider-Man suits, new photo mode features, and even new trophies for those of you looking to Platinum the game all over again.”
This is clearly a full makeover for an already very polished game. New trophies, increased detail, and near-enough no load times make Spider-Man: Remastered, for the PS5, a must-have. In our original Spider-Man Review, we said: “If you are either a fan of Spider-Man, superheroes or superpowers in an open world setting – you’ll absolutely love this game.”
Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be available to buy on PS4 and PS5 from Holiday 2020.
