The patch allowing game-save portability between Marvel’s Spider-Man on PlayStation 4 to Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered on PlayStation 5 has arrived. Insomniac Games says it rolled out the solution over the weekend.
The update also adds three new suits in Spider-Man Remastered to the PlayStation 4 game, for a total of 46. The suit update is headlined by “The Amazing Suit,” which is the style worn by Andrew Garfield in 2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man. Personally, I’m still waiting for the suit based on Nicholas Hammond’s threads in the 1970s TV movies.
Overnight we released an update for Marvel’s Spider-Man on PS4 bringing those suits, and the ability to export your save to Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered.— Insomniac Games (@insomniacgames) November 22, 2020
We also updated Remastered to allow import of those exported saves and with many additional fixes (incl. rest mode crash) https://t.co/LVnYVykc0Q
Insomniac announced the patch at the beginning of November, after an outpouring of disappointment from its friendly neighborhood Spider-fans. The studio originally said such cross-save capability wouldn’t be possible.
Insomniac says Remastered itself has also been patched, to allow the importation of these game-saves, and also to fix a crashing issue related to putting the PS5 into rest mode. Both updates are now live.
