Sony and Insomniac Games have released a brand new trailer for Marvels Spider-Man Remastered for PC next month, revealing some of the game's PC-exclusive features.

The teaser for Insomniac Games and its collaborator studio, Nixxes Software, was also published on the official PlayStation Blog (opens in new tab) and in which Mike Fitzgerald, Insomniac Games' technical director, discusses what they've been working on.

Fitzgerald explains that the studios wanted to make this game a visual delight on the PC platform, which meant offering extended customization to PC users with varying hardware, as well as introducing new tools and techniques to enhance things even further.

For anyone who have the hardware to support them, you can expect to see ray-traced reflections throughout the PC port of Marvels Spider-Man Remastered. One of these is a new, higher-quality ray-traced mode that provides even more city detail.

For RTX users, there's support for NVIDIA DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) and NVIDIA DLAA (Deep Learning Anti-Aliasing), as well as support for a wide range of display ratios, including ultrawide 21:9, panoramic 32:9, and NVIDIA Surround multi-monitor setups.

Fitzgerald states that many other rendering systems are more flexible than they were in the past, including additional quality levels and algorithmic options. These include SSAO, texture filtering, LoD quality, shadows, and more. We support full screen and exclusive full screen rendering modes.

PC gamers will be able to use the PS5s DualSense controller in addition to the mouse and keyboard, and there is a myriad of remapping options.

The final section of the article goes over the PC specs for the game, which are shown below. They're quite comprehensive, covering everything you'll need at the minimum, all the way through to the essentials you'll need for the ultimate ray-tracing experience.

The PC version of Marvels Spider-Man Remastered will be released on August 12. The blog post concludes by revealing that if you pre-purchase the game ahead of this release, you'll receive an early unlock for three Spider-Man suits, an early unlock of the Spider-Drone combat gadget, and 5 additional skill points to spend on Spidey upgrades.

Sony's PC push is a testament to its ability to make changes.

Spider-Man Remastered is the latest PlayStation game to be ported to PC as part of Sony's drive to release more games on the platform. It follows an excellent adaptation of 2018's God of War and a slightly less-acclaimed adaptation of Horizon Zero Dawn.

Sony has been talking about its PC releases for a couple of years now, declaring, "We will begin expanding our first-party titles to the PC platform in order to promote further growth in our profitability." Around that time, PlayStations CEO of Worldwide Studios Hermen Hulst made it clear that the company's then-new policy would not be to port over every first-party game. It would only port the ones that are suitable for PC.

In a shareholder briefing back in May, Sony revealed that the ports have brought in $80 million in revenue (running until the end of March). In the next financial year, Sony expects its PC games to earn $300 million, but it implies that the company intends to build a PC platform in the near future.

Although we were not holding our breath for Bloodborne, we already know that Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be receiving the PC version.
