Insomniac’s original game, Marvel’s Spider-Man, has been making headlines lately due to its confusing messaging around save data transfer and upgrade eligibility. Similar to Remedy Entertainment’s Control, Spider-Man: Remastered is not a free upgrade for PS4 owners. Players will have to buy the $70 Miles Morales Ultimate Edition if they want the enhanced Spider-Man: Remastered on PS5. Furthermore, save files will not transfer between systems.
While the original Spider-Man’s policies between PS4 and PS5 may leave some frustrated, Insomniac has confirmed that save data for the Miles Morales expansion will carry over between consoles.
One of the biggest changes made in Spider-Man: Remastered is Peter Parker himself. Specifically, Insomniac choose to recast the face model for the game’s protagonist to better match actor Yuri Lowenthal’s facial capture. (And he looks a lot more like Tom Holland, too.)
In other Spider-Man: Miles Morales news, a prequel artbook and novel are on the way for the game. Set just before the events of the expansion, the $16 novel “Spider-Man: Miles Morales – Wings of Fury” drops on November 10 and sees Miles battling Vulture and Starling. And in February 2021, the $40 artbook “Spider-Man: Miles Morales – The Art of the Game” will include concept art, renders, and commentary from the developers at Insomniac Games.
