Update: Miles Morales’ Ultimate Edition will include access to the PS5 version of Spider-Man for $70 USD or $124.95 AUD, Sony has confirmed. Otherwise, the game’s $50 USD version will not.
“On PS5, we are announcing an Ultimate Edition that includes a voucher code for Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered,” Insomniac today declared on the PlayStation Blog. “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.
“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.”
Spider-Man Miles Morales is a PS5 exclusive coming on 12 November, the launch date of the PS5 itself. (it’s also heading to PS4, Insomniac today confirmed). The original Spider-Man is available on PS4; its PS5 remaster will come alongside Miles Morales.
