Apparently, Sony is treating Spider-Man: Remastered for a completely standalone game. Sony has confirmed that owners of Spider-Man for PS4 cannot upgrade to Spider-Man: Remastered on PS5. This was confirmed today by Kotaku, which received a complete statement by Sony regarding the matter.
Having Spider-Man: Remastered coming on the PS5 is more than exciting, however, users did not know that it’s a word about a completely separate version of the game. Therefore, users who own the Spider-Man game on the PS4 won’t have an option to upgrade to the new version of the game and cannot buy it separately since it’s a part of the Miles Morales Ultimate Edition.
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.
