Marvel’s Spider-Man PS5 remaster will have its own trophy list, but no cross-gen saves

With the announcement of a Marvel’s Spider-Man remaster for PS5 last week, set to be available exclusively via the Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition, Insomniac have understandably been bombarded with questions from fans curious about what this means for the game.

In answering those questions, it’s been clarified that no, you won’t be able to transfer a save file from the original PS4 version of the game, but you will then be able to run through the game and earn all those trophies (and a fresh platinum trophy) all over again.

The Spider-Man remaster will be bringing across all of the enhancements that Insomniac have made to the game engine and the game assets to take advantage of the PlayStation 5. This means that the game will feature higher detail game characters for Peter Parker and others, it will also feature ray tracing and other enhanced visual effects, and the game take advantage of the console’s SSD, 3D audio and DualSense controls. Oh, and it’ll have some new suits.

Clearly the remaster and the Ultimate Edition in general is geared more towards newcomers to Insomniac’s take on the Spider-Man universe, giving those that haven’t played the game on PS4 a way to start from scratch but also have next-gen finery. I’m sure that some people will be tempted to pick it up to replay the original adventure, but it’s a slight shame there’s not at least the option to import a save. After all, while not confirmed, you would have to expect that saves will transfer between generations for Miles Morales, and all the other cross-gen games. Spider-Man’s status as a separate remaster likely has some backend implications for how Sony’s consoles handle save files.

Speaking of which, last week’s announcement also revealed that Spider-Man: Miles Morales was a cross-gen game, coming to both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, with an upgrade path to next-gen. It was a surprising turn of events, considering the tone of Sony’s statements about their first party games over the past half year, but a welcome one for those unable to upgrade at this time to be able to still enjoy some of Sony’s upcoming games.

Marvel’s Spider-Man does a spectacular job of making you feel like the ultimate Spider-Man. From swinging through the city at high speed to fighting off legions of enemies by zipping between them and pulling them into the air, its gameplay looks like a scene from the films. It’s remarkably well realised in terms of its world, design, and even technically, with short loading times and a rock solid framerate even on the base PlayStation 4. If Spider-Man is your thing then this is an essential purchase.
