Spider-fans who have played (or are still playing) Marvel’s Spider-Man on PlayStation 4 will be able to carry over their progress to the remastered PlayStation 5 version of the game, a reversal from developer Insomniac Games. The studio announced the change on Twitter on Monday, saying that game-save transfers will be available sometime after Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered launches on PS5 this week.

“We have heard you - in an upcoming update for [Marvel’s Spider-Man on PS4], we will add the ability to export your save to Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered,” Insomniac said in a tweet. “This update will also add the three new suits from Remastered to the PS4 game. We expect to bring you this update around Thanksgiving.”

(You can see Spider-Man Remastered’s new suits, and learn more about each one’s history, in Polygon’s guide.)

Insomniac originally said in September that saves would not carry over from the PS4 game to its PS5 remaster. That was extra salt in the wound for owners of the PS4 version of Marvel’s Spider-Man who found out they wouldn’t be able to upgrade their current-generation copy of the game to the next-gen version for free.

Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered will be released Nov. 12, in tandem with Sony’s launch of PlayStation 5. The remastered version of the game will include The City That Never Sleeps DLC, and is included as part of the Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition collection.
