Insomniac is collaborating with Nixxes Software to develop Spider-Man Remastered for PC. In the game, Peter Parker struggles to balance his life and career as a scientist with his crime-fighting duties as Spider-Man, especially with New York City falling into the clutches of iconic villains like Kingpin, Doc Ock, and the Green Goblin. The remaster comes with The City That Never Sleeps DLC, which contains three chapters that follow the main story.

PC players can play the game with either a controller or a mouse and keyboard, which has been confirmed, and they can adjust render settings and ray-traced reflections. More features will be announced at a later date.

Ryan Schneider, Insomniac Games’ head of franchise strategy and studio relations, also announced on PlayStation Blog that Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is being ported over to PC as well. Originally released on both PS4 and PS5, the game centers on the teenage protagonist as he follows Peter Parker’s footsteps as he faces a power struggle that threatens to destroy his new home of East Harlem while learning to balance the responsibility that comes with his newfound powers.

Schneider said the PC developments of Spider-Man Remastered and Spider-Man: Miles Morales come on the heels of their console counterparts selling over 33 million copies globally as of May 15. Both games were released in 2018 and 2020, respectively.

“I am extremely pleased with our collaboration with Insomniac on Marvel’s Spider-Man series, the shared support provided between our teams and their dedication to quality above all is inspiring,” said Jurjen Katsman, founder and senior director of development at Nixxes Software. “It allows our team to leverage our technical expertise and focus on creating the best possible PC experience that takes advantage of all the exciting possibilities the PC platform has to offer.”

Spider-Man Remastered will be released on Steam and Epic Games Store on August 12. Spider-Man: Miles Morales will launch on PC sometime this fall.

With the PlayStation 5 release of Spider-Man: Miles Morales including a remastered version of the base game, which is also available on PC, there's never been a better excuse to return to the open world of Marvel's Spider-Man. If you're looking to really test your spider skills, the toughest are the challenges set up by a bad guy known as the Taskmaster. Supposedly used to test Spider-Man's abilities in an elaborate attempt to defeat him, these mini-games offer an important reward: Challenge Tokens -- a currency used for some of Spidey's equipment upgrades and new suit purchases. That means you'll want to complete the Taskmaster's jobs, and what's more, you'll want to be good at them.

Taskmaster Challenges have three tiers: Amazing (bronze), Spectacular (silver), and Ultimate (gold). The Amazing tier earns you one token, the Spectacular rewards two, and you get a total of three tokens for achieving Ultimate. This means doing well can reward you with a bunch of key tokens at once. Getting those Golds is a serious undertaking though, requiring pitch-perfect fighting and swinging on Spider-Man's part. We've put together some tips and tricks for completing each of the Taskmaster's challenge types so you can shortcut the grind to Gold and get your upgrades quicker.

Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered on PC makes me excited for Sony games again
marvels spider man pc steam deck impressions msmr hero

When I got my review code for the PC version of Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, I was about to leave for a weeklong vacation. Normally, that would be bad news. With no gaming laptop, I’d have to wait until I got back home to test it out, before rushing out some impressions in a few days. But that wasn’t the case this time. In fact, the timing couldn’t have been better … thanks to my Steam Deck.

While the PC version of Insomniac's hit superhero game comes with a list of flashy improvements, its Steam Deck verification status is the most exciting one. That meant that I could take a supersized open-world game on the go and casually poke away at it for minutes at a time, rather than sitting at my PS5 or PC for long sessions.

PlayStation reenters the handheld gaming scene with special edition Backbone
The Backbone One - PlayStation Edition has a phone in it.

PlayStation is returning to the handheld gaming scene ... sort of. Today, PlayStation and Backbone announced their partnership and launched the Backbone One - PlayStation Edition. This device serves as a mobile gaming controller that players can use with the PS Remote Play app on their iOS phones. 
While it features all the same functionality as a standard Backbone One mobile controller, the PlayStation Edition more closely resembles a DualSense with its white and gray color scheme and transparent d-pad and face buttons. Backbone confirmed to Digital Trends that the Backbone One - PlayStation Edition doesn't include the DualSense's haptic feedback or adaptive trigger features, with Founder and CEO Maneet Khaira explaining that those features didn't ergonomically make sense in a mobile controller:

"Ergonomics and weight is always top of mind because we know that our players want a certain level of immersion in game when playing in the handheld form factor. That’s why we did extensive ergonomic evaluations and have consulted with multiple experts in usability and human factors when we thought through this design. Love the DualSense, it's one of our favorite controllers ever made. This product is distinct in that it's used primarily on mobile devices which have smaller form factors, and is therefore subject to its own unique constraints. As a result, it does not feature the haptic feedback and adaptive triggers in the DualSense. The size, ergonomics and weight of this product when combined with a phone allow players to enjoy playing the games they already love on their phone through PlayStation Remote Play with maximum comfort. Our goal wasn't to mirror the features of the DualSense, it was to create the gaming essential for PlayStation on mobile while feeling at home within the PS5 lineup."
