Sony has confirmed that Spider-Man: Remastered upgrade won’t be free for PS4 users. That means, there will be no free upgrade for Spider-Man Remastered on PlayStation 5 for players who already own the original Spider-Man on PlayStation 4.
Sony made a statement about this. Sony stated:
“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. 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.
There are no plans currently to offer Marvel’s-Spider-Man: Remastered as a standalone. 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 with PS5.”.
In a follow-up statement, Sony also said:. “The paid upgrade offer is eligible both if you’re upgrading from PS4 to PS5 and if you buy the standard Miles Morales edition on PS5.”
That means you can play the PlayStation 4 version of “normal” Spider-Man on PlayStation 5. But to play the graphically enchanted Spider-Man: Remastered, you have to pay for it. Stay tuned, enjoy.
