Surprise! Marvel’s Spider-Man developer Insomniac Games has dropped a new update that will finally enable PS5 owners to transfer their save data from PS4 to their next-gen systems.
Insomniac moved quickly to assuage fans’ concerns when it became apparent that progress in Spider-Man on PS4 would not be transferable to PS5, promising it would « add the ability to export your save to Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered » and the ability to transfer the three new suits from the Remastered to the PS4 game « around Thanksgiving ».
Seems the team has beaten its own self-imposed deadline, however, as the update is now live according to a tweet from the development team’s Twitter account.
Overnight we released an update for Marvel’s Spider-Man on PS4 bringing those suits, and the ability to export your save to Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered.We also updated Remastered to allow import of those exported saves and with many additional fixes (incl. rest mode crash) https://t.co/LVnYVykc0QNovember 22, 2020
« Just to be clear. You must use the PS4 game to export your save, » confirmed community director, James Stevenson, earlier today. « Remastered cannot see a save until it is exported by the PS4 game. This is the way. »
In related news, the absence of W.E.B. of Spider-Man (and several other series) in Marvel’s February 2021 solicitations raised our collective eyebrows earlier this week, and now we know what’s happening: the series is being postponed, indefinitely.
As Alyssa reported at the time, Marvel informed retailers late Thursday evening that the first two issues of the series have been « unscheduled for the time being », although no reason was given for the change.
Read between the lines, however, and a picture emerges. This five-issue series by Kevin Shinick and Alberto Jimenez Alburquerque is a tie-in to an upcoming Disney Parks ride that was announced to debut in 2021.
While you wait, make sure you’ve read the best Spider-Man stories of all time.
