Spider-Man Remastered puts players back in the latex suit of the arachnid superhero, but this time around civilian-mode Peter Parker is going to look a little different thanks to a new facial capture for the PlayStation 5 upgrade.

In new videos and screenshots released today, Insomniac Games gives us our first glimpse of what Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered will look like on Sony’s upcoming console. Apart from a Peter Parker whose likeness hews more closely to Marvel Cinematic Universe actor Tom Holland’s, the updated game also includes improved models, ray-traced reflections, and ambient shadows.

Whether you’re down with the tech lingo or not, it sure looks pretty!

“But it’s not just the environments; our characters have also gotten a huge upgrade,” wrote Insomniac community director James Stevenson. “From higher-fidelity skin, eye, and teeth shaders to individually rendered strands of hair, the new tech and detail brings our characters and their performances to new life.”

I’m not going to lie, the new Peter Parker face is a little jarring, if only because it’s so different. The provided footage doesn’t seem to indicate that other characters, like Otto Octavius, have received facelifts even half as drastic as the main character’s, but the more powerful platform improves the visuals from the original game more generally. Case in point, here’s the first 60 fps footage of Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered running on PlayStation 5:

Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered will be available on PlayStation 5 as part of the Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition package releasing November 12. There won’t be a free upgrade for those who already own Spider-Man on PlayStation 4, but an Ultimate upgrade will be available to folks who buy the standard version of Miles Morales on either platform.


      • Im not sure its even 4k 60fps …… Its a ‘last gen’ game so I really hope it is.

        From what we have seen so far the PS5 is hitting 1440p (2k) 60 fpgs and only 4k 30fps. Demon Souls remake seems only to be 1440p 60fps

  • I don’t understand why they needed a new face to improve things. Like, what res is the raw data from the original actor at? Also, bit shit for the original actor, who is now relegated to the ‘PS4 Ult Universe’…

    • Yeah I kinda liked the PS4 Peter, he didn’t come off too young or too old and now he looks a lot younger.

  • I thought this would bother me more, but it really doesn’t.
    He looks fine.
    I played the shit out of the original game, and I plan to do it again on PS5 too.
    And the ASM suit looks awesome!
