Sony Says There Won’t Be a Free PS5 Upgrade For Spider-Man PS4 Owners
Earlier this week, Insomniac Games responded to a few fan questions about Spider-Man: Miles Morales over Twitter. They also addressed the PS5 remaster of Spider-Man PS4 that comes with the new game’s Ultimate Edition. Apart from revealing that Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered won’t have its own physical release, the developers shared that they still hadn’t figured out whether owners of the original PS4 game could score the upgrade at no extra cost. But apparently that decision didn’t take long to make, because Sony has just given their answer.
In an email to Kotaku, Sony confirmed that Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered is exclusive to the Ultimate Edition of Miles Morales. You can read their full statement below:
“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,” Sony wrote. “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,” the statement continued. “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.”
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered boasts more than the obvious graphical enhancements. Insomniac also added three new suits, new photo mode features, and new trophies to the remastered collection. Unfortunately, PS4 saves won’t carry over to the PS5 version. The Ultimate Edition of Miles Morales retails for $69.99, $20 more than the standard launch editions for PS4 and PS5.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales will hit stores on November 12.
