After just being announced in June, Spider-Man Remastered will soon hit PC, dropping on August 12 on Steam and the Epic Games Store for $59.99. Today, a new trailer laid out the features that keyboard warriors will enjoy while exploring developer Insomniac Games’ meticulously crafted open world. From an unlocked framerate to ultrawide monitor support and improved shadows, Peter Parker’s Big Apple seems like it will look better than ever before.
Some of these visual improvements come from the list of new and improved technical features. The game will have improved ray-traced reflections over the ones found in the PlayStation 5 remaster and DLSS and DLAA support, which can boost performance and image quality, respectively. These come alongside the usual array of tweakable graphics options like texture filtering and shadow quality and standard PC features like achievements and cloud saves on both major digital storefronts.
And, as mentioned, it will support a variety of ultrawide displays including 16:9, 16:10, 21:9, 32:9, and 48:9 aspect ratios, as well as multi-monitor setups. Insomniac said it wanted to add these kinds of higher-end features while also making sure it runs on all sorts of rigs, which is likely somewhat more feasible since it originally came out on a console that released in 2013.

Even though there will be mouse and keyboard support and customizable controls through Steam Input, users can also plug in a DualSense and experience the pad’s adaptive triggers and haptic feedback. These features were also in the PS5 remaster and will also likely be comparable to what was found in that version.
Insomniac also revealed pre-order bonuses for the PC version and they’re the same ones from the PS4 original. Those who plunk down the cash early will get five skill points and early access to the Spider-Drone gadget and Spider-Punk, Velocity, and Iron Spider suits. The Velocity suit is one of the few original creations from Insomniac, while the Iron Spider suit was seen in Avengers: Infinity War. These suits and the gadget are all unlockable for everyone in the game, too, so they aren’t exclusive to those who pre-order.
This PC version also has the same changes from the PS5 remaster when compared to the PS4 original. For one, Peter Parker’s face was “recast” for this version in order to, as Insomniac put it, “get a better match to Peter Parker/Spider-Man actor Yuri Lowenthal’s facial capture.” The remaster also comes with the game’s three-episode story expansion, The City That Never Sleeps and all of the free suits Insomniac patched in for free after, which includes suits from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Raimi films, and the Andrew Garfield-led Amazing Spider-Man.

While Insomniac Games (and its partners at Nixxes) are working on this port, the two are porting over Spider-Man: Miles Morales, which will probably have a similar set of features. As for new titles, Insomniac is also creating two other Marvel video games. As announced during the PlayStation Showcase in 2021, it is developing Spider-Man 2 as well as a Wolverine game. Details around both are rather slim, but Spider-Man 2 is slated for 2023 while Wolverine has no release window.
