Sony Interactive Entertainment and developer Insomniac Games have released the first details today about the upcoming Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered for PlayStation 5.
The remastered version now includes ray-tracing, improved assets, a 60 frames-per-second performance mode, and a brand-new character model for Peter Parker. The game will also include three new suits including The Amazing Spider-Man suit.
The remaster will be included in the Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition for $79.99 on PlayStation 5. If you buy the standard edition, you’ll also have the option to upgrade to the Ultimate Edition to get the remaster. The game launches on November 12 alongside the PlayStation 5. Below you can see videos for the new Peter Parker and the 60fps performance mode.
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.
Peter Parker’s New Face Model
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 PlayStation 5 console. He looks incredible in-game, and Yuri’s moving performances take on a new life.
Additionally, thanks to the power of the PlayStation 5 console, we’re now able to offer a high frame rate through Performance Mode, which targets a 60 frames per second frame rate! This allows you to experience the beginning of the Marvel’s Spider-Man storyline like never before. It feels amazing to play.
Other PlayStation 5 Features
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!
First of Three New Suits
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.
