Anyone who has already bought Marvel’s Spider-Man for the PlayStation 4 and wants to buy Spider-Man Remastered for the PlayStation 5 will have to start all over again. The saved game files will not be compatible at all.
Last week Sony Interactive Entertainment and Insomniac Games had confirmed that a remastered version of the 2018 Marvel’s Spider-Man will be released for the PlayStation 5. This will currently only be available in a package with Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales and will bring some technical improvements, new trophies, and other functions for the photo mode.

However, those responsible have not yet decided whether owners of the PlayStation 4 version of Marvel’s Spider-Man will receive a free upgrade to the PlayStation 5 version. At this point in time, you would only use the backward compatibility of the next-gen console if you were to insert the PS4 disc.
This has several other consequences as well. Due to the separation of Marvel’s Spider-Man and Spider-Man: Remastered you will not be able to use the save game files of the PS4 version for the improved new edition. So you will have to start the Peter Parker adventure all over again.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales will play again a year after the events of Marvel’s Spider-Man and send the players to a snowy New York. In the past, the new part has been compared to Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, as both games, represent an extensive standalone expansion of the original main games. Therefore one should not expect the playing time as well as the size of the main part.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Spider-Man Remastered will be released on November 12 along with the PS5.
