PS5 Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered is a New Game, Not a Free Upgrade

Planning on buying Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales on PlayStation 4? If so, you may be wondering whether you’ll need to pay for Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered. This game will be included in the PS5 version of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition. As it turns out, things are a little complicated, but Sony has offered an explanation. Let’s take a look at what the company had to say.

What to Know About Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered on PS5

Kotaku shared the following statement from Sony:

“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.”

Spider-Man Game of the Year Edition Announced 2

If you are wondering what all of this means, here is the simple version. If you buy the game on PS4, you can upgrade it to the regular version for free on PS5. From there, you can pay to upgrade to the Ultimate Edition. The cost is $20. If you do that, then you will be able to play the remaster. So, that isn’t awesome. But it may still be worth it, since there are supposed to be massive enhancements.

It is up to you to decide whether to go the paid upgrade route from PS4 or to simply wait and buy the Ultimate Edition on PS5. Regardless, we will keep updating you on news about Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales in our PlayStation news.
