Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered Reveals the New Face of Peter Parker & Other Details
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered
Are you one of those Spidey fans who are waiting for the upcoming action-adventure game, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales? Well, publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment and developer Insomniac Games shared another update that you can look forward to.
In a recent update on Sony’s PlayStation blog, Insomniac Games revealed a set of new updates about Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered. The remastered will be included in Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales: Ultimate Edition for PS5 via a voucher code.
In addition to that, Insomniac Games also revealed the first gameplay footage, features, screenshots, and other details for Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered.
You can check out all the information below straight from PlayStation.
The team has done the painstaking work of updating the city’s environment to take advantage of the new console. Beyond improved models and materials, one of the biggest things we have brought to the game is ray-traced reflections and ambient shadows. We now have true reflections on the windows of buildings, and it looks stunning with our new skies and weather.
But it’s not just the environments; our characters have also gotten a huge upgrade. 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.
The New Face of Peter Parker
In order to bring the best performances to players with our next-generation Marvel’s Spider-Man games, we have recast the face of Peter Parker. We loved working with John Bubniak on the original game; however, to get a better match to Peter Parker/Spider-Man actor Yuri Lowenthal’s facial capture, we have cast Ben Jordan to be the face model for Peter Parker on the PS5 console. He looks incredible in-game, and Yuri’s moving performances take on a new life.
Thanks to the power of the PS5 console, we’re now able to offer a high frame rate through Performance Mode, which targets a 60fps frame rate! This allows you to experience the beginning of the Marvel’s Spider-Man storyline like never before. It feels amazing to play.
That’s not all! We take full advantage of other next-generation PlayStation features like near-instant loading (don’t worry, you can turn back on those humorous fast-travel animations if you miss them), Spatial 3D Audio on compatible headphones, and the revolutionary DualSense controller’s haptic feedback and adaptive triggers. We’ve also brought new photo mode features to the game that we developed for Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales: you can now place lights in the environment and change your Spider-Suit after you’ve lined up your shot!
New Spider Suits
That’s right, The Amazing Suit has arrived as one of three new suits in the game. It’s the perfect suit to wear as you attempt to earn the Platinum trophy in Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered.
On a side note, the new face of Peter Parker received pretty mixed reactions from the fans. Here’s some of it from Twitter.
Why laughing? Yes, his face looks kinda weird and ugh a little terrible but it's much more complex and technically speaking is much better. Especially when you consider this: pic.twitter.com/smUjNSp6jd

The original Peter Parker model looked like an "every Spider-Man actors face blended together to create the perfect Peter Parker" post but the new one is SO CLEARLY Tom Holland it rips away any feeling of uniqueness this Insomniac universe held. Disappointing. #BringBackBubniak pic.twitter.com/dBF3afvCKf
