Insomniac Games has given fans their first look at the upcoming Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered. We have now made a video comparing the two versions.
The biggest news regarding the upcoming Miles Morales standalone game is not its release date, it is the inclusion of Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered. Fans were curious to see how this version of the game has fared up next to the original PlayStation 4 release, which is arguably one of the best looking games this generation.
After waiting for some time, and answering some questions asked by fans on Twitter, Insomniac Games has now finally detailed the full features that will be a part of this upcoming Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered.
Here is a video comparison between the two versions running side-by-side on PS4 vs. PS5. The important thing to note here is not just the change to the face model, but also keep an eye on upgrades made in the background, and the quality improved from the original release especially the lighting.
The original face model for Peter Parker was John Bubniak and now it has been replaced by Ben Jordan, which is pretty obvious in the video comparison. According to Insomniac Games, this was done to “better match to Peter Parker/Spider-Man actor Yuri Lowenthal’s facial capture.”
The visual upgrade is not just limited to ray-tracing but applies to the character models too. This can be seen with Dr. Otto Octavius. His appearance is more fleshed out in the remaster if we compare it to the original PS4 release.
Lastly, this remastered release will support 60 FPS with a new performance mode on the PS5. It was also shown with a snippet of gameplay video that looked quite smooth.
Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered is a part of the Ultimate Editon of Miles Morales, which will cost $69.99. It can also be upgraded through the Miles Morales standalone game, which costs $49.99, using the in-game menu. This will cost $20 or basically the same price as buying the Miles Morales Ultimate Edition.
