On the occasion of the release in theaters Spider-Man: No Way Home, two costumes will be added to Spider-Man Remastered on PS5. Content that will not, however, be accessible to owners of the original game on PS4. Insomniac Games has since tried to justify this choice.
In a week and a day will be screened in dark rooms Spider-Man: No Way Home. And although it can be appreciated as a product in its own right, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales has just seen an advertising sign for the Jon Watts film.

PS4 players who would have liked to be considered in this offer when the PlayStation 5 is not yet an easily accessible product. It is true that even next year, from Sony internally, games will continue to be released on both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4.

“Since its release in 2018, we’ve updated Marvel’s Spider-Man (PS4) 19 times, adding more costumes and features than originally intended. Each patch was more technically complex, especially when it comes to maintaining the streaming performance of the PS4 hard drive.
To keep fans enjoying Marvel’s Spider-Man (PS4) at its peak performance, we’ve made the difficult decision to release these new costumes for Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered (PS5) where our PS5 engine allows us to update. the game without compromising the player experience. ”
