Insomniac Games has released the first footage of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered along with a slew of new information about the upcoming title.
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is set to release alongside the new PS5 console in November and users who purchase the ultimate edition of the game will receive a copy of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered.
Details about the remastered PS5 version of 2018’s Marvel’s Spider-Man was shared in a brand new PlayStation Blog post today, revealing the first screenshots, footage, and unveiling the new character model for Peter Parker.
As we previously reported, the remastered PS5 Spider-Man will include overhauled environments, models, and materials, as well as ray-traced reflections, new skies and weather, 3D audio, near-instant loading, a new photo mode, and a brand new face model for Peter Parker by Ben Jordan.
According to the new PlayStation Blog, the development team at Insomniac worked tirelessly to update the game to take advantage of the new PS5 software. Players will not be able to enjoy true reflections on the windows of buildings along with brand new skies and weather, and ambient shadows too.

All character models have been remastered too to include higher fidelity skin, eye and teeth shaders, as well as individually-rendered strands of hair.
One of the biggest changes in the remaster, however, is the new Peter Parker model. For the remaster and future games, Insomniac has moved from original game model John Bubniak to Ben Jordan who, as Insomniac describes “looks incredible in-game”.
In addition, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered offers a Performance Mode feature which allows players to target 60 frames-per-second. The remaster will also include 3D audio and is compatible with the DualSense controller’s haptic feedback.
Finally, Insomniac Games revealed in the post that the game will launch with The Amazing Suit from The Amazing Spider-Man – one of the three new suits to release with Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered. Like all suits from the original game, the three new suits will be unlockable in-game.
