Sony clarifies that PS5 Spider-Man remaster is not a free upgrade for PS4 Spider-Man players

Someone take notes

Sony has offered complex information pertaining to its recent announcement of a PS5 remaster of Marvel's Spider-Man, including details regarding the various upgrade paths to the web-slinger's acclaimed open-world adventure.

Speaking in a statement to Kotaku, Sony confirmed that there is no upgrade path that allows PS4 Spider-Man players to receive the new PS5 remaster for free. PS4 players can upgrade Marvel's Spider-Man to a PS5 version of Marvel's Spider-Man at no cost, but this is just a "standard" version of the game, and not the new PS5 remaster. With me so far?

PS4 Spider-Man players wishing to pick up the PS5 remaster will need to first purchase the upcoming Spider-Man: Miles Morales release, and then purchase a special "upgrade voucher" at the cost of an additional $20. Alternately, players can outright purchase the Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition on PS5 for $70, which includes both the PS5 remaster of Marvel's Spider-Man and Spider-Man: Miles Morales.

Sony has confirmed that there are "no plans" to offer a standalone release of the PS5 remaster. It's also worth a reminder that PS4 save files for the original Marvel's Spider-Man will not be compatible with the PS5 remaster.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales will launch on PS4 and PS5 November 12.
