Your first glimpse of the Arachnid Rider and Armored Advanced Suits, two all-new looks for Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered. Details on this enhanced version of the PS4 classic: https://t.co/iGY2mLTmfl pic.twitter.com/nEgzNY5AeT— Insomniac Games (@insomniacgames) November 6, 2020
The Arachnid Rider design and name appears to pay homage to popular Japanese superheroes with insect motifs, like the main characters from the long-running Kamen Rider franchise. The Armored Advanced Suit gives a futuristic upgrade to the game's original Advanced Suit, and features a lot more white and a lot less blue.
Prior to announcing the Arachnid Rider and Armored Advanced Suits, Insomniac also told players that it would include a new suit from The Amazing Spider-Man in Spider-Man: Remastered. Compared to the unique Arachnid Rider and Armored Advanced versions, The Amazing Spider-Man Suit holds a more classic design.
The three new suits will first come to the PS5 version, but Insomniac confirmed that the PS4 edition will also get all-new looks at some later date.
they will come to the PS4 game. Timing TBD.— Insomniac Games (@insomniacgames) November 6, 2020
As a reminder for PS4 players: Spider-Man Remastered PS4 saves will not transfer to the PS5 copy. So if you've already made progress on the PS4 version, you will need to start from the beginning again on the PS5.
In his Spider-Man: Miles Morales review, Jordan Ramée played the PS4 edition and scored the game 7/10. He comments, "SM:MM feels a lot like a missing chapter to 2018's Spider-Man. The gameplay is so similar, and the environment is largely the same. It's in the characters (especially Ganke and the Tinkerer) and the story that it tells that SM:MM manages to break free of what's been done already to deliver something that you'll want to see all the way through."
Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Spider-Man Remastered will launch with PlayStation 5 on November 12. Spider-Man: Miles Morales is coming to PS4 on the same day, and you can upgrade to the next-gen console version for free. As for existing owners of Spider-Man on PS4, there is no upgrade path for a standalone remastered edition. You will have to purchase the $70 Miles Morales Ultimate Edition to get Spider-Man Remastered. Check out our Spider-Man: Miles Morales preorder guide for more information.
