Sony recent held another big PlayStation 5 showcase, which offered a new look at Spider-Man: Miles Morales. After the event, Sony announced not only is the standalone adventure coming to PS4 and PS5, but that the original Spider-Man will be getting a PS5 remaster with a bunch on new graphical feature. The bad news? You’ll have to buy the game again.
In a situation similar to Control and its next-gen Ultimate edition, Sony is not offering a way for existing Spider-Man owners on PS4 to upgrade their version to the new PS5 remaster outside of buying the game again. In a statement from Sony, the company says the remaster won’t be sold as a standalone, meaning you’ll have to buy the $70 Miles Morales Ultimate Edition to get access to the remaster on PS5.
“There are no plans currently to offer Marvel’s-Spider-Man: Remastered as a standalone,” the statement reads. “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. Marvel’s Spider-Man for PS4 also will be backwards compatible on PS5.”
