Marvel's Spider-Man on PS4 now supports save data transfer to the recently released PS5 remastered version.
In addition, three new suits, including the tokusatsu hero-like Arachnid Rider suit, will also be available for PS4.
Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered for PS5 is a remastered version of Marvel's Spider-Man for PS4, upgraded to match the PS5's capabilities.
In addition to graphical enhancements similar to the PS5 version of the new Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, the frame rate (frames per second), which was up to 30 fps on PS4 even with PS4 Pro, is now 60 fps, so the action can be played with the smoothness of a gaming PC.
The remastered version will appeal to new players, as well as to players who played the PS4 version but didn't finish the main game because of all the side-tracks, or to players who have completed the game but are strong and want to play the new game in the comfort of PS5, but at the time of its release, there was no data compatibility or succession function from the PS4 version, so you had to start from the beginning.
With this update, players will be able to play the game on PS5 from the point where they saved it on PS4.
To take over, you need to do the following
Update both PS4 Spider-Man and PS5 Remastered to the latest versions.
Launch PS4 Spider-Man. In the save data selection screen, focus on the data you want to export and press the R1 button. Confirm that the data has been exported.
Start Remastered on PS5. On the saved data selection screen, select the slot you want to import and press the R1 button. Confirm that you want to import.
The PS4 version of Spider-Man and PS5 Remastered are two different games. So updating does not mean that they can now be synced with PS Plus cloud saves.
The three added suits are as follows
Armored Advanced Suit
Even PS4 players who have not yet gotten the PS5 console or the remaster will be able to use the new suits in the PS4 version.
Marvel's Spider-Man: Remastered for PS5 is currently only available as a bonus that comes with the Ultimate Edition of the new Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales for PS5.
If you buy the standard edition for PS5, you can also upgrade to the Ultimate Edition for a fee and get it later for about the difference.
If you bought Miles Morales for PS4, you must first get the PS5 version as a free upgrade, and from there you must follow the procedure of a paid upgrade to the Ultimate Edition. You can't buy Marvel's Spider-Man: Remastered on its own.
