Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered is getting some new stylish costumes, but we don’t know what they do just yet
There may be a lot of news about Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales today, but that hasn’t stopped developer Insomniac from releasing more information on the remastered version of 2018’s Marvel’s Spider-Man. When the game drops on PlayStation 5, players will be able to suit up Peter Parker in two new costumes, and they’re big breaks from the web-slinger’s usual attire.
Revealed in a post on Insomniac’s official Twitter page, the two new costumes are the Arachnid Rider and the Armored Advanced Suit. The first of these two put the usually lithe Spider-Man in a hyper-stylized suit of gothic armor. Somehow, he has to manage to swing around with pointed gauntlets, greaves and a spiny face-plate. The second is another variation of the armored spider-suits, this time with frosty white as its primary color. It’s also not nearly as beefy as some of the other armored suits, retaining that slim look Spider-Man is known for.

While these suits are great to look at, it’s not totally clear what abilities they’ll come packed with, players will just have to wait until they can actually try them out. These new costumes will be available immediately on the PS5’s version of Marvel’s Spider-Man, but they will also arrive on the game’s current-gen version, although Insomniac has not yet determined when that will be.
Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered will boast a suite of enhanced features when it launches. Besides faster loading, thanks to the PS5’s SSD and higher resolutions and framerates, the game will make use of the DualSense controller’s new features as well. Adaptive triggers and haptic feedback will give players a feel for all of Spider-Man’s various gadgets and gizmos, as well as a sense of tension when thwipping out a web.
