Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered on the PS5 video reveals marked improvements over the PS4 version

Fans of Marvel’s Spider-Man for the PS4 were dismayed at the initial news that Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered for the PS5 wouldn’t be a free upgrade and wouldn’t feature the ability to export saved files from the PS4 version to the PS5.

Insomniac has since retracted the latter of the two decisions, announcing on Monday that players would in fact be able to export saved files from Marvel’s Spider-Man on the PS4 to Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered on the PS5. On Tuesday morning the studio revealed some more promising news — no, Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered won’t be free, but as we expected, the game looks to be markedly improved, especially from a visual standpoint on the PS5.

Insomniac Community Director James Stevenson revealed a glimpse at what the addition of ray-tracing on the PS5 version of Marvel’s Spider-Man could do for the game’s visuals, most noticeably in terms of lighting, textures and remodeling.

The first graphics comparison comes courtesy of Stevenson’s Twitter account, where he evinces how Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered on the PS5 was completely relit.

The second graphics comparison was first posted on the ResetEra message board. The Marvel’s Spider-Man PS4 version is on top:

Ninja Gaiden was my rite of passage at an early age. After finally beating that game (and narrowly dodging carpal tunnel) I decided to write about my gaming exploits. These days I enjoy roguelikes and anything Pokemon but I'll always dust off Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox 64 from time to time to bask in their glory.
