Insomniac Outlines Upgrades for Spider-Man Remastered on PlayStation 5

Spider-Man Remastered offers a complete visual overhaul and recasts Peter Parker's face in the process.

Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered for PlayStation 5 brings a number of enhancements to Spidey’s PS4 outing. Insomniac’s Community Director James Stevenson outlined these changes in a new PlayStation Blog post and showed a few in action.

Stevenson said that New York City received a significant visual overhaul made possible by ray tracing and ambient shadows. There are new assets, such as new skies and weather effects, plus accurate reflections (lest we forget puddlegate) and improved models in general.

These extend to the character level. Spider-Man Remastered boasts new teeth, skin, and eye shaders and even renders hairs individually.

The enhancements meant Insomniac had to recast Peter Parker’s face model, John Bubniak, with Ben Jordan “to get a better match to Peter Parker/Spider-Man actor Yuri Lowenthal’s facial capture.”

Some fans are less than pleased with the move, taking to social media to voice their dissent, though Insomniac said it was necessary. Lowenthal even tried assuring upset folk it just wouldn’t have worked with the old model.

All this is in addition to other upgrades PlayStation 5 makes possible, including DualSense enhancements and 3D audio with compatible headsets.

Stevenson also outlined how players can purchase Spider-Man Remastered, even if it won’t be releasing physically or separate from Miles Morales

  • packed in with the Spider-Man Miles Morales Ultimate Edition for PlayStation 5 as a voucher ($69.99)
  • available as a paid upgrade for those who buy the PS5 standard edition of Miles Morales ($49.99)
  • available as a paid add-on for those who buy the PS4 edition of Miles Morales and then upgrade to the standard PS5 edition; upgrading Miles Morales to the PS5 version is free.
