Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered is available now as a standalone release for the PS5. Interestingly, if you own the season pass and original game, you can’t buy it.
Sony has released the Remastered version of Marvel’s Spider-Man as a standalone release on the PlayStation Store. It can be bought for $40 which is expensive compared to the Miles Morales Ultimate Edition deal. In the case of the Miles Morales Ultimate Edition, you just need to pay $20 to buy this upgrade.
While the listing on the PlayStation Store for this standalone version of Marvel’s Spider-Man is just $39.99, there is no way to buy it if you own the original game along with the season pass.
In our case, we are just seeing an option to download the game from Library, and if we go to the Library section on the PlayStation Store, it is only showing the original PS4 release. This might be an error so we are not sure how it will be resolved, but if you are thinking that this means you also own the remaster, it is likely not the case.
This version of the game added features like 4K and 60 FPS performance mode, ray-tracing, and a complete overhaul of the visuals. This also replaced the default Peter Parker character model with a new one which led to a slight controversy before the launch of the new remaster.
For those who owned the original Spider-Man and its DLC, there was no way to upgrade to the Remastered version without shelling out $19.99 after purchasing a copy of Miles Morales. However, this standalone release is still not available for purchase for those with the DLC and full game combo, and with the $39.99 price, it is a much better deal to get it along with the Miles Morales.
