The Spider-Man Remaster changes a lot — including Peter Parker’s face

On Wednesday, Sony announced new details on Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, an update of Marvel’s Spider-Man for Sony’s next-generation console, the PlayStation 5. The game will feature a few expected upgrades, like better graphics, a higher frame rate, and a few new Spider-Man suits. It will also feature some unexpected changes … like a brand-new face for Peter Parker.

According to a new post on Sony’s PlayStation Blog, Peter Parker’s facial model has been changed in the remastered version of the game, from John Bubniak’s face to Ben Jordan’s. The blog post explains that in order to bring out the best possible visuals for the remastered version of the game, the development team needed a better match for the facial capture done by Yuri Lowenthal.

Possibly by coincidence, this new Peter Parker also happens to look a bit more like the MCU’s Peter, Tom Holland, than the previous actor did.

Insomniac community director James Stevenson goes into a few details about the game’s new next-gen visuals. The upgrades to the remastered version of the game will include ray-tracing for reflections and shadows, along with a new performance mode that will boost the game to 60 frames per second. The remastered game will also come with a few new suits, including one based on Andrew Garfield’s from the Amazing Spider-Man movies.


Spider-Man: Miles Morales coming to PS4, too

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered will be available on PlayStation 5 on Nov. 12. Unfortunately, players who already own Marvel’s Spider-Man on PlayStation 4, won’t be able to upgrade to the new version for free. However, the Ultimate Edition of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales will also include a code for the Remastered version of the original game and will retail for $69.99.
