Marvel’s Spider-Man PS4 update adds cross-gen save export and three new suits

Marvel’s Spider-Man on PS4 and Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered on PlayStation 5 have both been updated over the weekend to enable the export and import of your save data across generations. Additionally, players on the original release of the game now have access to the three new suits that were bundled into the remaster.

Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered is bundled in with Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition, which launched alongside the PlayStation 5. One of a few minor bones of contention surrounding Miles Morales’ announcement was that (once the remaster was revealed) the game would not allow you to import you save progress from the PS4 original. The announcement of the remaster came at the same time as the reveal that Miles Morales was, in fact, a cross-gen title… and would let you transfer your progress from PS4 to PS5. While some people would relish in the excuse to replay the game from the very beginning and see the sights of New York City with a fresh like of ray traced paint, others might want to do so with a New Game+ instead.

In order to transfer the save, you must first update the PS4 version of the game, whether on an actual PS4 or by installing the original release onto your PS5. Then, update the game to version 1.19. Now, from the in-game save game menu, you should see an option to export the save. This moves it to the cloud, so that an up-to-date copy of the remaster on PS5 can import it to a save slot from its own save game menu.

Here’s the simple, to the point patch notes for Spider-Man on PS4, version 1.19:

In our review of the original game, Gareth wrote:

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.
