'Spider-Man' PS4 update will let you transfer your save to the PS5 remaster

An update around Thanksgiving will connect the 'Spider-Man' games across generations.

In a reversal of an earlier decision, Insomniac Games announced on Monday that PlayStation 4 players will have the ability to transfer their save files from Marvel’s Spider-Man to the upcoming PlayStation 5 remaster of the game. What’s more, they won’t have to wait long to pick up where they left off, with the studio saying it plans to update the original game to enable save file exports sometime around the Thanksgiving holiday in the US. That same update will also bring over three new suits from Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered to the PS4 version of the game.

The fact you originally couldn’t continue your original save on the remastered version of the game came out in September. The lack of save transfer functionality was seen as another unfair decision toward PS4 owners of Marvel’s Spider-Man as Sony isn’t offering those people a free upgrade to the PS5 remaster. In fact, the only way to get a copy of the game at the moment is to purchase the Ultimate Edition version of Spider-Man: Miles Morales. If you do end up picking up the remaster, you can look forward to updated graphics and playing the game at 60 frames per second. Oh, and Peter Parker has a new face.
