Here’s How Spider-Man Remastered Is Improved On PS5

Sony’s latest PS5 showcase revealed that Marvel’s Spider-Man will receive a remastered version as part of the Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate edition bundle when it launches this year. While it won’t allow for saves from the original game to be transferred over to the PS5 version, there is reason to give it a look even if you’ve already played through it. Insomniac Games has outlined the various visual improvements coming to Spider-Man Remastered on PS5.

According to the developer, Marvel’s Spider-Man features upgraded art assets that were built to take advantage of the PS5’s new hardware, characters are “better-looking” thanks to improved skin, eyes, hair, and facial animations. Ray-traced reflections, ambient shadows, and improved lighting will also be seen in a more densely populated New York City, while the draw distance has also been improved.

Like Spider-Man: Miles Morales, the original game will also feature two graphical modes, with the studio saying that the performance mode option targets 60 frames per second. The PS5 SSD will also mean near-instant loading of levels, while more immersive elements will rely on the console’s 3D audio and the DualSense controller’s haptic feedback features.

On top of all that, three new suits, new photo mode features, additional Trophies, and The City That Never Sleeps DLC campaign will complete the package.

The standard edition that only includes Spider-Man: Miles Morales will retail for $50, while the Ultimate edition will cost you $70. Both versions launch on November 12 alongside the PS5. For more, check out GameSpot’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales preorder guide.
