Marvel's Spider-Man: Remastered Now Available as Standalone Game for PS5
Lindsay Robertson / 08 May 2023
The recent news of Marvel's Spider-Man being removed from the PlayStation Plus offer on May 16 left many fans puzzled. However, Sony's decision now seems more logical as they have released Marvel's Spider-Man: Remastered as a standalone product for the PlayStation 5. Previously, the enhanced version of the popular 2018 game was only available as part of the Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition bundle.
Marvel's Spider-Man: Remastered is an improved edition of Insomniac Games' hit title, specifically designed for PS5. The standalone version offers several enhancements over the original game, including better graphics and performance, taking full advantage of the new console's capabilities. Fans can now enjoy their favorite web-slinging action with even more stunning visuals and smoother gameplay.
For players who already own Marvel's Spider-Man on PlayStation 4, there is an upgrade option available. By paying a $10 fee, owners of any PS4 edition – boxed or digital – can access the Remastered version on their PlayStation 5 console. This is a great opportunity for fans to experience the game with its latest improvements without having to purchase the entire Miles Morales Ultimate Edition bundle.
With this move, Sony has not only provided a more accessible way for players to enjoy Marvel's Spider-Man: Remastered but also given fans an incentive to upgrade to their next-generation console. The standalone release is sure to attract both newcomers and those who loved playing the original game on PS4 but did not want to invest in a bundled version just for one title.
In summary, this Sony's decision to offer Marvel's Spider-Man: Remastered as a separate product has proven to be a strategic choice. While its removal from PlayStation Plus initially caused confusion, the separate release and upgrade option ultimately cater to a broader audience, benefiting both players and Insomniac Games. Fans can now fully immerse themselves in the web-slinging action of New York City with improved graphics and performance on their PS5 consoles, elevating their overall gaming experience.
