This is a big one: Insomniac’s PlayStation-exclusive Spider-Man is coming to PC. Sony announced this latest PC port in its State of Play event on Thursday, with “Remastered” appended to its title. Even better: Miles Morales is also being ported to PC.
Marvel’s Spider-Man hit the PlayStation 4 in 2018 and was praised for nailing the character’s movement and style. It’s in rare company as a truly great comic book game alongside the likes of Batman: Arkham Asylum, and also the best-selling superhero game ever made, despite being a platform exclusive. Now a whole bunch of PC players are going to be able to get their hands on it, too. Here’s what I really want to know: how does the web slinging feel on a mouse?
While several of Sony’s planned PC ports were teased in advanced, or leaked in the Nvidia GeForce Now database, this one’s a surprise. Spider-Man is Sony Pictures’ most treasured character and box office cash cow, so if any first-party Sony game was going to stay a console exclusive, it seemed like it would be this one.
The PlayStation blog states that “Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales are heading to PC,” implying the two will be separate rather than a combined package. It doesn’t dive into technical details, but does offer this tidbit: “Of course, you can count on additional standard PC-specific features such as adjustable render settings and ray-traced reflections, with more features and details to be announced later.”
RTX puddles: On.
Spider-Man Remastered is out on August 12, 2022.
Correction: This article originally stated that only 2018’s Spider-Man was coming to PC, not 2020 spin-off Miles Morales. In fact, it’s both. We regret the error.
