Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered is the latest Sony title to make the jump from PlayStation to PC, and it just might be the most complex job yet.

Thanks to the wizardry of Insomniac Games, Spider-Man runs on a PS5 with both a 60FPS frame rate and some Ray-traced details as well.
That’s all to say that the PC version of Spider-Man Remastered has a lot of headroom when it comes to ways that it can look even better. Pushing the frame rate and the visual fidelity seems to be the goal when it comes to these PlayStation PC ports, but usually, the developers have a narrow set of areas where they can improve the game. For developer Nixxes Software, the potential is a lot higher, but that seemingly came at a cost.

In terms of graphics settings, users can tweak the shadows, reflections, and character detail to give Spider-Man and his rendition of New York a ton of life. Marvel’s Spider-Man was already an exceptionally impressive game on the PS4 – that was made even better on the PS5 – so it’s no surprise that it squeezes out even more performance and visual detail on PC.
Without question, Spider-Man Remastered is one of the best open world games out there, and it is well worth playing regardless of platform. Those who choose the PC…
