Back in September, Insomniac tweeted that save data would not be transferable from the original version of the game to the Remaster. The decision drew the ire of the game’s fans, Some of whom weren’t happy with the idea of starting the game from scratch. That anger was on top of complaints that players who own the original will not get a free upgrade to the remastered version.
The free update will bring three new suits from the remaster over to the PlayStation 4 version, including the Arachnid Rider and Armored Advanced suits. Insomniac confirmed that the suits will be available to everyone regardless of whether or not they have beaten the game.
Those who want to upgrade their standard copy of Spider-Man: Miles Morales to gain access to the remaster of its predecessor can do so via an in-game menu for $20.
The update isn’t slated until around Thanksgiving, so players won’t be able to move their data over until a week or two after the game’s launch. Spider-Man: Miles Morales, which includes the remaster of Marvel’s Spider-Man, is out November 12 alongside the PlayStation 5.
