Insomniac Games has just revealed new info on Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, the next-gen version of the mega-hit Spider-Man title on the PS5. While it brings a lot of improvements, Spider-Man Remastered also has a new look for Peter Parker.
In the original, Peter’s look is modelled after John Bubniak. But for the remaster, Insomniac went with a new actor in Ben Jordan for Peter’s face model. According to Insomniac, this was made “to get a better match to Peter Parker/Spider-Man actor Yuri Lowenthal’s facial capture.”
Check out a short clip of Peter’s new look for the remaster here:
Aside from Peter’s new face model, Spider-Man Remastered brings a lot of improvements, the highlight being the Performance Mode. In this mode, the game will run at a smooth 60 FPS thanks to the power of the PS5 hardware.
The remaster also brings a host of graphical updates, including updated models and textures, as well as ray-traced reflections and ambient shadows. Alongside these, Spider-Man Remastered will feature near-instant loading, Spatial 3D Audio on compatible headphones, and haptic feedback via the DualSense controller.
To top it all off, Spider-Man Remastered will feature three new suits, one of which is “The Amazing Suit” which you can see here:
Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered will be available as part of the Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition for the PS5. Players who buy Miles Morales on the PS4 will get a free upgrade path to the PS5 Standard Edition, which won’t come with Spider-Man Remastered. Instead, players can get a paid upgrade in the Miles Morales Standard Edition menu.
