Spider-Man Remastered On PS5 Now Supports Saves From PS4 Version
With great power comes great responsibility to let people pick up where they left off in Spider-Man.
Marvel's Spider-Man is one of the most-successful PlayStation exclusives of all time, and if you own the PS4, you've probably played it. That's why it was disappointing when we learned the game's save data wouldn't be supported in the PS5-exclusive Spider-Man Remastered. Or at least that was the case, as Insomniac Games has delivered a new update enabling the feature.
Overnight we released an update for Marvel’s Spider-Man on PS4 bringing those suits, and the ability to export your save to Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered.— Insomniac Games (@insomniacgames) November 22, 2020
We also updated Remastered to allow import of those exported saves and with many additional fixes (incl. rest mode crash) https://t.co/LVnYVykc0Q
The update, which Insomniac Games pushed live overnight on November 22, is for the PS4 version of the game. Using this game, you can export your save data into Spider-Man Remastered as well as the suits you've acquired. A second update was applied to the PS5 version which makes numerous fixes and, of course, allows you to import the save data that you had exported from the other game.
One of the other fixes applied to the PS5 version is for the Rest Mode crash, which was causing some players' entire system to crash. It's unclear if Rest Mode is safe to use yet in other PS5 games, or on the dashboard, so we'd still suggest turning your console completely off when you aren't using it for the time being.
Spider-Man Remastered is only available through Spider-Man: Miles Morales on PS5. The Ultimate Edition includes the remastered game, and if you own Miles Morales on PS4, you can then upgrade to the Ultimate Edition later on PS5. We also wouldn't be shocked if Sony eventually offered the remastered version on its own, but thus far, that isn't in the works.
