Insomniac Games has been working on Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered for a year, and despite some new assets revealed earlier this week, the team continues to improve the look of the next-gen re-release. Community director James Stevenson confirmed the treat in a Twitter post, where he explained that it is “very gratifying” to be able to unveil the title.
It's very gratifying to show the amazing work the team has been doing for the last year on this.
Look at that ray-tracing! 60fps footage! New Peter!
And of course, finally… the TASM suit. https://t.co/h2KuoUGOuI

Core CTO Mike Fitzgerald added that while the new ray tracing reflections look good in screenshots, they really come to life on the move. “Seeing cars and people going in and out of the frame, pigeons and planes flying, movement in the new dynamic clouds [is where the remaster shines],” he said, pointing out that the loyalty s ‘is “a little” improved since the images were captured.
As good as it looks here, the reflections truly shine in motion—seeing the cars and people come in and out of frame, pigeons and airplanes fly by, the motion in the new dynamic clouds, etc. (We've also even improved the fidelity a bit since these were taken. 😀) https://t.co/49F3lKZv1L
