Here is the full statement by Sony:

“Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered is an enhanced version of Marvel’s Spider-Man, and is included as part of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition for the PlayStation 5. In addition, players who purchase Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales on PlayStation 4 can upgrade at no additional cost to the PS5 version of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales and can take advantage of a paid-upgrade to download Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered.”

Many PlayStation fans were confused as to whether they could get a standalone version of Marvel’s Spider-Man remastered. And the answer was provided by Sony to Kotaku, as currently, there are no plans for making Spider-Man remastered a standalone offering.

Here’s the full statement from Sony:

“There are no plans currently to offer Marvel’ s-Spider-Man: Remastered as a standalone.

The only ways to get Spider-Man remastered on the PS5 is to buy the Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition, or to get a $20 paid upgrade.

If you have a standard edition of Miles Morales on the PS4 or PS5, then it is upgraded to the ultimate edition by paying 20 USD extra. Furthermore, it makes you eligible for the Marvel’s Spider-Man remastered version.

“The paid upgrade offer is eligible both if you’re upgrading from PS4 to PS5 and if you buy the standard Miles Morales edition on PS5.”

You can play the Marvel’s Spider-Man PS4 version on the PS5 via backwards compatibility too. But to play the remastered version, you have to buy the ultimate edition or go for the $20 paid upgrade.
