No free upgrade to PS5 remaster of ‘Marvel’s Spider-Man’ for PS4 owners

Players will have to purchase ‘Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales’ to gain access

Sony has confirmed that PS4 owners of Marvel’s Spider-Man will be unable to upgrade to the PS5 remaster for free.

It seems like the only way for fans to get their hands on the remastered version of Marvel’s Spider-Man is by purchasing Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition. However, players who own a PS4 version of Miles Morales will be eligible to upgrade said game for free, but will face an additional charge to pick up Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered.

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered is an enhanced version of Marvel’s Spider-Man, and is included as part of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition for the PlayStation 5,” Sony told Kotaku in a statement. “In addition, players who purchase Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales on PlayStation 4 can upgrade at no additional cost to the PS5 version of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales and can take advantage of a paid-upgrade to download Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered.”

Sony added that there are currently “no plans” to make Marvel’s-Spider-Man: Remastered available as a standalone game. “Players with a copy of Marvel’s Spider-Man for PS4 can purchase Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition to experience Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered on PS5,” it added.

Remedy Entertainment was recently criticised by fans for not giving free upgrades to owners of its game, Control. Currently, only players who purchase the Ultimate Edition of the game are set to receive a next-gen upgrade. The developer later released a statement and said it was not possible to offer the free upgrade, despite various PS4 owners accidentally being upgraded for free.
