There are still many questions about the Spider-Man: Remastered version for PlayStation 5, which as we know will only be included in the Ultimate Edition of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Sony, however, gave more details recently, and it is not that positive.
According to a press release from the Japanese company released to Kotaku, those who own Marvel’s Spider-Man on PS4 will not be able to upgrade to the PS5 Spider-Man: Remastered for free. This means that you will have to buy the Ultimate Edition if you want to play it, since it will not even be standalone.
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered is an enhanced version of Marvel’s Spider-Man, and is included as part of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition for the PlayStation 5. In addition, players who purchase Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales on PlayStation 4 can upgrade at no additional cost to the PS5 version of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales and can take advantage of a paid-upgrade to download Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered.
There are no plans currently to offer Marvel’s-Spider-Man: Remastered as a standalone. Players with a copy of Marvel’s Spider-Man for PS4 can purchase Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition to experience Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered on PS5. Marvel’s Spider-Man for PS4 also will be backwards compatible on PS5.
It was also noted that after buying Miles Morales on PS4, the users will also have access to the PS5 version for free, but only for the latest upcoming game of Spidey. Obviously those who have the game on PS4 will be able to play it on PS5, but without improvements.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be available at the PS5 launch, and Marvel’s Spider-Man is already available on PS4.
