Marvel's Spider-Man PS5 Remaster Will Not Get A Physical Release
Saves from the original game will also not transfer to Marvel's Spider-Man: Remastered.
Developer Insomniac shared through Twitter a few new pieces of info about the remastered game. The PS5 version of Marvel's Spider-Man will not be getting a physical release, and saves will also not transfer from the original game to the remastered edition, so you'll have to restart Marvel's Spider-Man: Remastered on the PS5 even if you've made progress on the original PS4 game.

Insomniac also acknowledged players who wanted to know if they could still upgrade the PS4 version of Marvel's Spider-Man if they already owned it and did not purchase the game as part of the Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate edition bundle. Though the developers did not give an answer yet, they've promised to release more information regarding that specific situation soon.
@insomniacgames I pre-ordered a PS5 bundle that included the standard edition of Spider-Man Miles Morales. Does that mean I can't upgrade my PS4 version of Spider-Man? I would be happy to pay the extra $20, but I don't want to lose my pre-order.— WhiteWolf235 (@WhiteWolf235) September 18, 2020
We'll provide more info on that as soon as we can but we have thought about that scenario!— Insomniac Games (@insomniacgames) September 18, 2020
The remastered version of Marvel's Spider-Man will include improved facial features and animation as well as ray-traced reflections, ambient shadows, and enhanced lighting. Three new Spider-Man suits, new photo mode features, and new trophies will also be a part of the remastered game.
The Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate edition bundle, which, as stated before, includes Marvel's Spider-Man: Remastered and three DLC packs that make up the Spider-Man: The City That Never Sleeps, retails for $70. The standard edition that only includes Spider-Man: Miles Morales retails for $50. Both will be released along with the PS5 on November 12. Preorders are now available and you can check out GameSpot's pre-order guide to the standard and Ultimate editions of Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
