Marvel's Spider-Man PS5 Remaster Will Let PS4 Players Carry Their Saves Forward With Post-Launch Update

Marvel's Spider-Man PS5 Remaster Will Let PS4 Players Carry Their Saves Forward With Post-Launch Update

Insomniac is letting you carry that progress forward after all.

Two Spider-Man games are launching this week: both Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and a remaster of the 2018 Spider-Man. Originally, the remaster was going to be a separate entity from the PS4 version, without any chance for cross-save. Today, Insomniac announced its reversing course on that decision.

In a tweet posted today, Insomniac announced that it has heard the response, and in an upcoming update for the PS4 Spider-Man, it will add the ability to export your save to Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered. As part of the update, three new suits coming to the remaster will also be added to the PS4 game. The update is expected to go live around Thanksgiving.

This is good news for folks who are picking up the new Spidey game. It's still not part of Miles Morales' next-gen upgrade path, so you won't get a free copy of the remaster if you already own the PS4 version. Still, with a new console, you have to imagine some people might get nostalgic after playing the Miles Morales entry and dip back into 2018's journey.

They'll be greeted by some changes though, ranging from increased fidelity and framerates to a brand-new Peter Parker. Yes, it's still a little jarring.

Miles Morales, meanwhile, will have a free upgrade for PS4 players and support cross-gen saves as well. Keep in mind, you can buy Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales with or without the 2018 remaster, but you can only get the remaster if you pick up Miles Morales.

Our own Reviews Editor Mike Williams seemed to enjoy his time in Spanish Harlem with Miles, if our recent review is any indication. While you might have played most of this game before, "Insomniac does an amazing job telling the story of its version of Miles," Mike writes.

Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered launches alongside both Miles Morales and the PlayStation 5 on Nov. 12, 2020. The update adding cross-save for PS4 players is expected sometime around Thanksgiving.
