It shows the title running using an optional performance mode which targets 60fps and is also included with Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
Insomniac Games community director James Stevenson told the PlayStation Blog: “Beyond improved models and materials, one of the biggest things we have brought to the game is ray-traced reflections and ambient shadows. We now have true reflections on the windows of buildings, and it looks stunning with our new skies and weather.
“But it’s not just the environments; our characters have also gotten a huge upgrade. From higher fidelity skin, eye, and teeth shaders to individually-rendered strands of hair, the new tech and detail brings our characters and their performances to new life.”
One major change is the recasting of Peter Parker’s face, from original actor John Bubniak to Ben Jordan, who has a resemblance to Spider-Man film star Tom Holland.
Spider-Man Remastered is not getting a physical release. The $70/£70 Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition will include a download code for the remaster, including all three instalments of the The City That Never Sleeps DLC, plus three new suits including the Amazing suit.
Players who purchase the standard edition of Miles Morales—which has a free PS4 to PS5 upgrade path—will be able to pay an additional $20 fee to get the Ultimate version including the remaster. Sony says “PS4 game disc owners who buy the PS5 Digital Edition disc-free console will not be able to access this offer.”
