It has been over two years since Insomniac Games released Marvel's Spider-Man game for all PlayStation 4 (PS4) players worldwide. The title proved to be an instant hit with many players still buying it as we wait for the successor Miles Morales to become available. If you are someone who owns the title but is also planning to get the PlayStation 5 (PS5) remastered version, you might be wondering whether you will be able to port your PS4 file saves to your next-gen console. The good news is that yes, you will be able to do so.
In its latest tweet, Insomniac Games has announced that Spider-Man PS4 owners will be able to transfer their game saves to the PS5 remastered version. This is a surprising but welcome announcement for the gamers as the developer had previously denied offering the support. It seems like the team could not say no to the huge consumer demand.
Marvel's Spider-Man users on PS4 will receive a new update around the Thanksgiving period in the United States. It will add the ability to save and export the game data which can then be transferred to the Remastered version on the PS5. This same update will also bring three new Spider-Man suits that were originally designed for the Spider-Man Remastered title.
We have heard you - in an upcoming update for #SpiderManPS4, we will add the ability to export your save to Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered. This update will also add the three new suits from Remastered to the PS4 game. We expect to bring you this update around Thanksgiving. pic.twitter.com/EqoKnto3FV— Insomniac Games (@insomniacgames) November 9, 2020
However before you get too excited, it is worth noting that Insomniac Games has neither made the Remastered version available as a free upgrade for PS4 users nor as a stand-alone purchase. The only way to get your hands on it is to get Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition that costs $69.99. It is unknown whether it will ever be sold separately but if the studio makes an announcement, we will keep you posted.
