Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered gets DualSense features, DLSS support on PC

Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered is less than a month away from swinging to PC, and Sony has revealed some new features on the PlayStation Blog that players will experience when they get the game. Two of the port’s most notable features are its PlayStation DualSense integration and Nvidia DLSS support.

DLSS is an acronym for “deep learning super sampling,” and it’s responsible for enhancing the graphical performance of a PC game, boosting its frame rates and resolution without compromising image quality or taxing the graphics card in the process. However, DLSS does this with the help of a dedicated Tensor Core A.I. processor that can only be found in GeForce RTX GPUs.

The “super sampling” part is an anti-aliasing method that smooths out the jagged edges that show up in a rendered image. In other words, the pixelated parts of buildings or characters that may have originally shown up in the original PS4 version of Marvel’s Spider-Man will be softened up by DLSS in the remastered PC version.

For those who prefer to play Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered with a wireless controller instead of a mouse and keyboard, the game supports the use of the PS5 DualSense controller. This way, they can get the full PS5 experience with adaptive trigger feedback and haptic response as they swing around New York City and go toe to toe with Spidey’s biggest foes.

The PC version will get several other key features, including ray-tracing, ultrawide monitor support, and more graphical options. Sony released a spec chart for the title, showing that the game is capable of hitting 60 frames per second at 4K.

Major PC modding sites Nexus Mods and ModDB have banned users for uploading anti-LGBTQ content they modded into Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered.  The bans specifically target mods that replaced every Pride flag with American flags.

Nexus Mods wrote in a blog post yesterday that a modder created a sock puppet account named Mike Hawk to upload a mod that swapped out the Pride flags flying off a few buildings in the game with American flags. The site called the user a "coward" for creating an alternative profile to troll other users with their anti-LGBTQ content, knowing that such content wouldn't be allowed had they uploaded it from their main account instead.

Sony may be stepping up its commitment to PC gaming. Eagle-eyed fans have discovered references to a PlayStation PC launcher in the recently ported Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered.

Video Game Chronicle reported on Tuesday that it discovered references to a PlayStation PC launcher within the game's files. This could hint toward Sony planning to create its own PC launcher for its games. VGC also discovered and verified other files with names such as "PSNAccountLinked" and "PSNLinkingEntitlements." While Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered and other PC ports like God of War can't be linked to PSN, the files found in the former game may suggest that players could be able to link their PC and PSN accounts in the future.
