Some time ago the rather surprising news broke that on May 16, Insomniac Games' hit Marvel's Spider-Man will disappear from the PlayStation Plus offer. This rather incomprehensible at the time decision by Sony now begins to make sense.
- It turns out that the PS Store now offers Marvel's Spider-Man: Remastered - an improved version of the 2018 game, prepared for the PS5, as a standalone product, and not, as before, only as part of the Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition bundle.
- There is also an upgrade option. Owners of any PlayStation 4 edition - boxed or digital - can pay $10 to upgrade to the Remastered version.
The standalone edition may therefore be a good option for those who want to experience a game tailored for the capabilities of current-gen consoles, but don't want to spend money on a full package that also includes Miles Morales.
- It is worth mentioning, however, that PS Plus subscribers who have previously picked up any edition of Marvel's Spider-Man as part of their subscription, are not eligible for upgrading the game to the PS5 version.
All of this is presumably to give Sony a chance to generate more revenue from the first Spider-Man, which should spark renewed interest among gamers in the coming months ahead of the highly anticipated release of Marvel's Spider-Man 2.
Insomniac Games' new work should debut this fall. According to the information provided some time ago by the actor lending his voice to Venom - Tony Todd - the title will reportedly hit store shelves in September.
