With the impending release of the PS5, there’s a lot of hype around. The gamers are excited to get their hands on a new console, but things are tense. There are only a few exclusive titles in the opening days of the new console generation. The PlayStation 4 and next-gen PlayStation 5 will both remain popular for 2020 and beyond. And with the support of big AAA entertainment names, the consoles will be much more popular.
Having Marvel jump on board is a pretty big get. And Sony is going to push their games pretty hard. And with Spider-Man Miles Morales, the same is true. The release of Spider-Man Miles Morales does have some questions around it. Fans are curious if the new Spider-Man Miles Morales, as well as the remaster of the original Marvel’s Spider-Man, will both support cross-gen and cross-save functions.
Does Spider-Man Miles Morales have Cross-Save and Cross-Gen?
Spider-Man Miles Morales does have both cross-save and cross-gen for both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. Both consoles will allow you to play together, and if you do decide to move from one console to another, there is an option for that. You can upgrade from the PS4 version to the PS5 version, but you can’t go back. The title is a PlayStation exclusive, so there’s not any moving saves around outside the Sony ecosystem.
The one downside is that the remastered version of the original Marvel’s Spider-Man will not have this option. “Saves won’t transfer from the original game to the Remaster,” said Insomniac Games, replying to a fan wondering if they could transfer their save, and pick up where they left off. And just to be clear, the remaster is a different game from Spider-Man Miles Morales.
That’s important because there is a special version of the new game that includes the remaster. That’s the Ultimate Special Edition of Miles Morales in case you were curious. The bundle includes a remastered Spider-Man for PS4, and that will not support cross-gen or cross-save functionality.
The games will both be PS5 launch titles. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be available on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on November 12. You can get it on the PS4 first, but then move on to the PS5 version for free later on. Some regions will get it ahead of others though, as Oceania gets it on the 19th.
