In anticipation of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2’s release this fall, Insomniac and Marvel will be releasing a prequel comic on May 6. The story of the comic explores the growth of Peter, Miles, and MJ since the events of the original two games, as well as what their lives look like in the aftermath. Bringing in writer Christos Gage and artist Ig Guara, the comic unites the trio in a struggle against The Hood, whose supernatural abilities prove to be a challenge for both Spider-Men. The comic will be available through participating comic book stores in the US, or digitally through the Marvel website or the Marvel Unlimited app (worldwide release to follow later).
Previously only available as part of the Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition, Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered will be available as a $49.99 standalone purchase later this month on the PlayStation Store. Those who own any edition of Marvel’s Spider-Man on PS4 will be able to update to the Remastered version for $10, though disc edition owners will still have to pop the disc in even while playing the Remastered version.
It is pertinent to mention that those who own the disc edition of the original game will not be able to upgrade to the Remastered version for the discounted $10 price if they own a PS5 Digital Edition. Additionally, those who own any edition of the game through their PlayStation Plus subscription will not be eligible for the Remastered edition upgrade. The $20 Ultimate Edition upgrade through Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is still available, however, so PlayStation Plus subscribers looking to play the Remastered version only need to shell out $20 to access it.
