When the new port of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered lands on PS5, it has some bad news for fans coming over from PS5. The PS5 version of the game won’t port over old saves. That means any progress on the PS4 version will not be carried over to the next-gen console. Insomniac Games confirmed that there are no plans to add the feature either.
“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. Sadly that’s not going to be the case for this version of the game. So even though Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered for PlayStation 5 will have some impressive visuals to back it up, losing cross-save support is a big bummer. Some fans will undoubtedly be turned off the PS5 release as a result, but I would wager most who want the new version will tough out having to redo their progress.
Insomniac Games also confirmed on Twitter that it has no plans to release Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered as a physical disc in stores. So that means those of you without fast internet may be out of luck. It sucks but it’s seems to quickly become the norm thanks to a digital release being the much cheaper option.
And with digital sales overwhelming overtaking physical, with as much as 83 percent of all games sales being digital, it is undoubtedly the future way of games distribution. It’s also very likely that most fans looking to fool around as Miles Morales won’t care about not being able to have a disc version.
