Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered detailed

Included with Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales: Ultimate Edition coming November 12, 2020.

We were so excited to announce that a voucher code for Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered will be included* with the Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales: Ultimate Edition on the PlayStation 5 console. This is a full next-gen remastering of Marvel’s Spider-Man – the team has been carefully crafting the definitive version of the game with new assets, technology, and updates. We’re taking advantage of next-generation technologies that the PlayStation 5 console introduces, as well as bringing some additional features to the game, including three new suits.

Let’s talk about graphical updates. The team has done the painstaking work of updating the city’s environment to take advantage of the new console. 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.  

This does bring us to one of the bigger changes. In order to bring the best performances to players with our next-generation Marvel’s Spider-Man games, we have recast the face of Peter Parker. We loved working with John Bubniak on the original game; however, to get a better match to Peter Parker/Spider-Man actor Yuri Lowenthal’s facial capture, we have cast Ben Jordan to be the face model for Peter Parker on the PS5 console. He looks incredible in-game, and Yuri’s moving performances take on a new life.

Here’s a clip of one of our most powerful scenes from the first game, when Peter arrives to work to find his boss and mentor, Otto Octavius, working on the arms that will come to define him.

Additionally, thanks to the power of the PS5 console, we’re now able to offer a high frame rate through Performance Mode, which targets a 60fps frame rate! This allows you to experience the beginning of the Marvel’s Spider-Man storyline like never before. It feels amazing to play. Here’s a quick clip.

That’s not all! We take full-advantage of other next-generation PlayStation features like near-instant loading (don’t worry, you can turn back on those humorous fast-travel animations if you miss them), Spatial 3D Audio on compatible headphones, and the revolutionary DualSense controller’s haptic feedback and adaptive triggers.  We’ve also brought new photo mode features to the game that we developed for Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales: you can now place lights in the environment and change your Spider-Suit after you’ve lined up your shot! 

Oh, speaking of Spider Suits… here you go:

That’s right, The Amazing Suit has arrived as one of three new suits in the game. It’s the perfect suit to wear as you attempt to earn the Platinum trophy in Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered.


 We hope this helps explain why we’re so excited for Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered.

  • This looks insane! Totally worth the extra money for the Remastered version.

    • Incredible amount of work by Insomniac, a true Remaster.

      New assets, character models, facial animations, ray tracing, ambient shadows, 60fps, new skin/hair, new suits, new photo mode, new trophies, more NPCs, more cars, greater draw distance, all DLC c’mon.

      Well worth $20 especially for all DLC, new suits, new plat.

  • Who TF is this kid?? Why would you change his character model??

    • Read the article. This one matches Yuri’s voice acting better

    • Yeah this is a ridiculous copout. If Andy Serkis can play an ape without issue, getting a human to match with another human should not be an issue. This feels more like a corporate mandate to find some parity with Tom Holland’s depiction of the character.

    • My problem with this is that we can’t buy it separately. I also wish Sony would provide an upgrade path to Spider-Man ps5 who owns the ps4 version. It may not be free but something like a 10$ upgrade cost would make me happy.

    • BS. Their previous model had an uncanny resemblance to young Robert Downy Jr. They shifted now to this to give him a Tom Holland hint. Disgusting.

    • @WaspyWasp2_2
      I can read the article till’ the cows come home, doesn’t mean it’ll make any more sense. Think about it, don’t just read the words, think about what that statement is actually saying.
      The modes matches voice acting better?
      A game model, a model for a game, a model that’s in the game. THAT matches the voice acting better? Do you know how many things there are in videogames that have voice acting but not even a body, let alone a face? This was just a halfassed excuse, nothing more.

    • They still have to map the facial expression of the voice actor to the in game model. Their reasoning is that the new game model gives a more natural mapping to the facial expressions of the voice actor.

    • My assumption is that they wanted to go with a new Peter character model for both Miles Morales (if he does make an appearance in the game) and the sequel.

      I will admit, it IS quite jarring and probably unnecessary, but the artists are allowed to have their own visions and if this is what they wanted to do then it’s not really an issue that’ll take me out of the game. Character models change all the time in games like Mortal Kombat and Injustice and I have no problem accepting those. It’s fine.

      I just hope this character looks as good as the original in that one very heartfelt scene towards the end of the game…

    • Well, Insomniac has two explanations. Neither make a lot of sense. Here, Mr. Stevenson chalks it up to some vague technical reasons that strangely only affect a single character, and the solution is to make him look like Tom Holland. Whereas, Bryan Intihar is saying that Insomniac is changing the character “for the future of the franchise” or something, and that’s why they’re making Peter Parker look like Tom Holland now. Take your pick I guess.

    • Their argument makes zero sense. This guy fits far worse with the model. This looks like a crappy deepfakes of Tom Holland.

    • I laugh when all these people regurgitate the crap that Insomniac put out… it’s a 3D skin, you can model anything against anything. If this was the case – why not just put Yuri Lowenthall in the game? If he resembles Ben Jordan so much. Also – the game’s character models were a bit hit-and-miss… but that’s also one of the things that gave it character. It’s not the MCU… so why try so hard to replicate it? The point is – it’s Yuri doing the motion capture – that means that all the animation is Yuri – not Ben Jordan. By this token – do we need to start developing character-specific appearance voice actors, so they can match them more closely to the in-game appearance? This just doesn’t make a lick of sense.

  • Take my money. Ya lo quiero.

  • Good job Insomniac Games

  • thank you for clearing this up, the media has been spreading a lot of misinformation.

  • If I pre-order the Ultimate Edition through that link, will I be able to use my psn wallet credit? Why isn’t it available to pre-order in the psn web store?

  • I would have bought the Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition, so I can play with the DLCs on PS5, and then if I want to, I can swing around in the city with my fully upgraded character in the original game. But you had lost me when you said I can’t carry my save to PS5. I don’t want to play the same game again from scratch, especially not after the boring grinding the platinum trophy required. Sorry. I hope others will enjoy it!

    • The trophy list is completely different. The same save file can’t work if the objectives are different.

    • Same here. No save game compatibility no purchase. I’ll just wait for bargain bin sales during holidays 2021. In the meantime plenty to play (ps4 backlog and all the games on xb gamepass).

    • Subject117, all they would have to do is give a player a warning. “If you use this PS4 save data, all trophies will be disabled for Spider-Man Remastered. Would you like to continue?” There you go lol.

    • and that’s why I don’t grind platinums.

    • lol you guys acting like this is a new thing
      guys remasters almost never let you use your old safes
      and btw sony has done this alot
      i mean last of us didnt have it when it came from ps3 to ps4
      stop whineing

    • Platinum grinding is sometimes worth it. A handful of games, like Spidey, give you some cool avatars for it.

      But I only recently found that out. Really I did platinum grinding because I loved Spidey PS4 so much that I just kept wanting excuses to replay it.

      Must’ve fully played through six times now…

  • Still waiting for a free upgrade for spider-man ps4.

    • spider-man ps4 has a free upgrade on ps5, if that is what you meant, the remaster is the one its 20$ to buy seperate.

    • @mania568
      You dont get a free update, you just get to play through BC. The “””remastered””” is the ps5 upgrade which is BS.

    • The remastered version is not akin to a simple next gen upgrade. It’s a darn remaster with new assets ffs. New skin, hair, character models, ray tracing, new suits, new facial animations, more cars n NPCs, new trophy list. Wtf? When will ppl understand this is more than a next gen bump, it’s a remaster..by Insomniac themselves.

  • Kinda dumb question: does the PS4 Miles Morales DISK run the PS5 version when I use it on a PS5 or is it a “backwards compatible” version?

  • I’m sorry I severely disagree with the choice to recast the face model, Yuri Lowenthal was one of my favorite Peter Parkers and now this feels extremely natural, if this is the permanent new face of Spider-Man it just doesn’t make sense to me. Why? He was fine, perfect even! Sucks because I’ve been waiting to play the remaster for my replay of the game and now I’m just going to be taken out of the experience.

    • Yuri is still the voice but he never was the face. What does extremely natural mean?

    • Yuri was never the face, only the voice – and still is. Frankly I though the previous face model looked weird. I’m super happy about the change – although I wish they’d gone for someone less Tom Holland-y.

  • I definitely preordered the Ultimate edition, however, the new face really doesn’t look that great. Not sure why you folks had to update his face model.

  • In my opinion, Bubniak’s face was more interesting as nerdy Peter Parker.

  • why is the European version 40% more expensive than the US version? do we get 40% more Spider-Man jokes?

    • How did you arrive at 40% more?
      Don’t forget that taxes are not included in US price, but are in EU price.

    • how much sales tax do US gamers pay? even 20% would not cover the huge price difference (50 v 70 USD)

    • It depends where in the US they live. Some states have no sales tax, some it’s close to 10%. And that’s just the state, most counties and cities have their own sales tax on top of that. That’s why it’s not included in the price here, it’d be 1000s of different prices.

  • Tom Holland wannabe I HATE it but it’s just a midel we can get used to it 😩

  • The 60 fps looks good, and the Amazing suit looks… amazing! lol

    But that new Peter Parker? Yuck. Not that he looks bad, he’s just not the Peter we’ve all come to love, and your logic doesn’t make any sense. You wanted a face to better capture Yuri’s performance… then why not just use Yuri’s face, but de-age him? They did it in Death Stranding with Lindsay Wagner’s character. Please tell me there’s an option to switch models, because this is just distracting.

  • 1. Keep physical media alive!!! Down with “limited time” physical copies.

    2. LOL Recasted the face of Peter Parker?! That’s just so weird. I remember when inFAMOUS fans (like myself) complained when they changed Cole in inFAMOUS 2 and ended up changing him back to the original.

    • There no “limited release” of the physical copy… I mean there is a launch edition which is a practice which has been around.

    • Only the “Launch Edition” with the voucher for the early unlocks is limited.

    • Physical media is dying. Music is all digital and streaming, movies are headed that way as well.

      You must not have a PC or smartphone, those devices are digital only now and no one complains.

  • Im sorry, but I like the original face model better. Maybe there should be an option.

  • You’ve changed the face of the best Peter Parker in any media into resembling the awful MCU Iron Man Jr one. Why?

  • Yeah, why update Peter Parkers face model and not the rest of the cast? Its very off putting, no offense to the actor, but you should bring the original back.

  • so peter now looks way younger than miles, what a dumb decision.

  • The recast might have something to do with pay discrepancies.

  • So if I buy the PS5 Deluxe Edition, does that mean I get access to the PS4 version of Miles Morales in the meantime until I can actually get a PS5?

  • Will the 3 new suits be an free upgrade to the PS4 version?

  • Sorry, but that face completely kills not only this version of Spider-Man, but also every coming Spider-Man game with Peter in it. You can’t change the look of your main character this drastically. You turned the best looking Peter Parker ever into a cardboard cut-out of one these awful Maze Runner movies. You completely smashed every Hype for Spider-Man i had. And the original is my favourite Game of this Generation. You have 50 Days. Fix this!

  • i guess the changes is face to add value to the remastered edition thre was nothing wrong with the original peter you coud have tweaked the model you had or theres something else going on behind the scene why your no longer using it. give us a choice to use the old peter please Thanks

    also can you please state how much the price of the spider-man remaster edition will be if your coming from ps4 miles Morales , stop stepping round about the subject and fess up the price.

    • They stated it a while ago.
      Miles game is free to upgrade to ps5 from ps4.
      To get the remaster after buying Miles game for 50$, you pay 20$.
      They stated it a while ago, but you weren’t paying attention. They were going around

  • If you own a copy of Spider-Man on PS4 do you get a free upgrade, a performance boost, does it play on the PS5? How does that work?

    • This is exactly what I’d like to know, or whether the remastered version on PS5 is available to buy separately (for those of us who are not planning on buying the new Miles Morales game).

    • The PS4 copy of 2018 SM runs on PS5 throught Backwards Compatibility. No free upgrade to Remaster. No idea if there is any performance boost.

    • You only get free upgrades on games that are closer to the release date of the PS5. The PS4 version of Spider-Man came out in late 2018 so there really isn’t a need to give a free upgrade to a game that came out over a year ago.

    • There are some PS4 games that are getting performance boosts on the PS5. They have not announced a list, so it’s not clear if Spider-Man will be one of them or not.

      If it is, it still won’t be this level of improvement, with ray tracing and new assets – it will be higher resolution and/or faster framerates of the original game.

      Personally, I’m torn. Loved the original and still put it in to play a bit now and then. Will definitely play Miles Moralis. Might or might not go back to the original…maybe wait for the upgrade to go on sale some day?

  • Time to Buy Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales with Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered

  • So discounted Tom Holland, ay? Fine by me :D

  • Wasn’t the point supposed to be it’s an Older Peter Parker? So why make him younger? Makes no sense.

  • It looks awsome, but one question. If bought the spiderman ps4 in my ps4 and I buy the ps5 i have to buy the Spiderman miles morales to have the uptade of the remastered version?

  • Interesting move to recast Peter’s face. “To better fit Yuri’s mocap” sounds like a cover to me for something else.

    • That’s exactly why I’m wondering. They seem to think we’re stupid. I bet you either assets were lost, or there was a contract dispute.

  • I’m fine with the recast even though the first one was good enough, more detail and improved animations in prosses. so a win win. The game almost look path traced with that processing haha

    • my only issue with the new face is that he looks like he is Mile’s age now, if they aged him up a bit i think it would fit a lot better for the story as well as the likeness to yuri.

  • I hope Tom Holland is getting paid for being Spidey in this Remaster.

  • OMG…NO NO NO…NO !!!
    why did you change the Peter Parker’s actor ???!!! he was the best Peter Parker ever !!! EVER !!!
    how can you change the main character so drastically !!! bring back the old one !!!

  • Nooooice. Glad I pre-ordered the ultimate edition :)

  • amazing and buttery smooth

  • Really excited for the game and the features to come in the Remaster and Miles Morales. That said, I’m definitely not a fan of the change to the facial model, as some others have said he looks younger than miles now which doesn’t make sense. I’d vastly prefer the old face model back or at least an option to switch.

    Makes it seem like it’s a movie tie-in now, still excited and loved the ps4 game, platinumed it. But very put off by the decision to change the model, and don’t understand the reasoning. Tons of facial capture artists look nothing like the VA, hasn’t caused any issue in the past.

    • Replying to my own comment to say, it’s not like his face changed after the reveal trailer in development before the game came out. We had a full game, and 3 DLCs with that model only to get a massive seemingly unneeded change. He’s basically unrecognizable as the old peter.

  • I very much dislike the model change and your reasoning just does not make sense to me. Yuri is the voice and not the face of Peter here. This new model looks like a nobody to me.

  • I’m not sure I understand the logic that if you buy the Miles Morales game on ps4 you get it for PS5, but if you bought the original spiderman you don’t get the PS5 version?

  • Why’d you have to go and change the character model? The main reason I like the story of the first one was because Peter wasn’t a kid. Ill keep the ps4 version, thanks

  • Sorry but like so many I am really offput by this new model for Peter Parker. It cements my decision not to buy this as the original was perfect as-was. This is like one of those bad movie remakes where the directors should have just stayed away! And your comment about a better facial match sounds disingenuous. The original mocap was great. Seems like such a waste of time and resource.

  • Great, you ruined Peter. I loved the face of him before, this just looks like a knock-off Tom Holland, or a bad deepfake.

  • “Spatial 3D Audio on compatible headphones”

    Can you give us a list of these so we can be prepared? Thanks

    @insomniacgames

  • I like the old face better but whatever I guess. It’s the parts where his mask is on that matter.

    • That was my thought. This face looks too young for the character, as others have said, and I don’t see the point. BUT 90% of the time he’s wearing his mask so you can’t see the face. I don’t think it will bother me a ton. Some, but not a ton.

      I keep going back and forth on picking it up, though. At least it’s an option to purchase later if you get MIles Moralis now – that wasn’t as clear before.

  • Are we able to get the new Spidey costume in the PS4 version?

  • Not a fan of the new face. They say it was a better match but the face seem to be less expressive than the old one. What a weird decision to make.

  • In my opinion this doesn’t match with yuri lowenthal at all, maybe if this was 10 years ago but you can tell in his voice that yuri (as well as peter) is a older more experienced man. this new model makes Petr look the same age as Miles

  • Hopefully they will at least add an option in the settings to change it bac to the original face.

  • Will the new Peter face model be retroactively added to the PS4 version, or will it be only for the remaster?

  • Just want to make sure I understand. I have a PS5 Bundle preordered with GameStop that includes the regular version (i.e. not Ultimate) of Miles Morales. Based on this blog, is it saying I’ll be able to upgrade in game and get access to Spider-Man: Remastered? And it would be a ~$20 upgrade?
