Insomniac Games answered questions from the community on Twitter. There those responsible went into whether Spider-Man Remastered will also appear as a disk version and whether owners of the PS4 version will receive a free upgrade to the PS5.
Insomniac Games commented on Twitter when a fan asked if the new Spider-Man Remastered version will also be released as a disk version. The studio replied that there were no plans for it. So you have to assume that the game will not be available in retail stores. This would still be possible at a later point in time.
The second question was whether the owners of the original version will get a free PS5 upgrade. Insomniac Games did not confirm this, but announced that they have already thought about it and that new information will be available soon. So the chances are not bad.
Last week, it was announced that the Ultimate Edition of Spider-Man: Miles Morales will contain a technically upgraded version of Spider-Man Remastered. If you have not played this title yet or would like to experience it again with better graphics on the PS5, you should opt for this edition.
There will also be the same optional performance mode from Spider-Man: Miles Morales, which allows you a resolution of 60 frames per second. Last but not least, there will be three new outfits, new functions in photo mode, and new trophies.
So far it has not been officially announced whether the PS5 version of Marvel’s Spider-Man will be released separately. As of now, you can only get them by purchasing the Ultimate Edition of Spider-Man: Miles Morales. This will be published in both digital and physical form.
