This week we learned that the game of Spider-Man celebrate the imminent premiere of Spider-Man: No Way Home, the long-awaited Marvel movie, with a pair of new costumes inspired by the version played by Tom Holland on the big screen. However this free DLC will only be available on Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered of PlayStation 5 – a version that at the moment can only be obtained with Ultimate Edition from Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales– and not in the original version of PS4. Insomniac Games has responded to player questions about this decision.
“Since launch in 2018 we have updated Marvel’s Spider-Man on PS4 19 times, adding more costumes and features that weren’t originally planned. Each patch has been technically more complex, especially for performance in streaming from the PS4 hard drive, “the studio comments on Twitter.” To ensure fans will follow enjoying of Spider-Man (PS4) to optimal performance, we have made the difficult decision to launch these new suits for Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered (PS5) where our engine allows us to update the game without compromising the user experience. “

The answer has not convinced some players, who are not clear about the relationship between adding two new suits to the game and the performance problems they could cause. At the moment they are only planned for the remastered version of PS5 and They will be ready on December 10th, free with an update.
One of the most acclaimed superhero video games
Spider-Man PS4 expanded the number of costumes with various updates. One of the most demanded aspects by the players was the costume that Tobey Maguire used in the Sam Raimi trilogy, a DLC that was added shortly after the original release. We do not know if aspects based on Spider-Man: Across the Spiderverse (Part 1), sequel to the award-winning animated film Spider-Man: A New Universe that will bring us new adventures of Miles Morales and Gwen Stacy where they can meet Spider-Man 2099 (Miguel OHara), who will be played by actor Oscar Isaac.
