If you‘re a Spider-Man fan eager to swing through the streets of New York with enhanced visuals and new features, you may be wondering: how can I get my hands on Marvel‘s Spider-Man Remastered without breaking the bank? Don‘t worry, true believer—there are several creative ways to claim Spidey‘s latest adventure for free or on the cheap. I‘ll walk you through the best options below.
Purchase the Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition
The simplest way to get the Remastered version is to buy the Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition for PS5. This bundled release includes a digital copy of Marvel‘s Spider-Man Remastered alongside the new Miles Morales game for just $69.99.
Given that the base version of Miles Morales goes for $49.99, you‘re basically getting the enhanced remaster of the 2018 game for just $20 extra—a stellar deal. As a fellow superhero fan on a budget, I can‘t recommend this option enough if you were planning to pick up Miles Morales anyway.
Upgrade Your Existing PS4 Copy for $20
Already own a PS4 copy of Marvel‘s Spider-Man and want to upgrade to the remastered edition on PS5? Great news: you can get the enhanced version for just $20 if you meet these simple steps:
- Purchase a physical or digital copy of Marvel‘s Spider-Man: Miles Morales for PS5.
- Insert the Miles Morales disc or launch the digital version on your PS5.
- You‘ll be prompted to purchase a Remastered upgrade voucher for $19.99.
- Confirm the purchase, and you‘ll be able to download Marvel‘s Spider-Man Remastered!
At 95% off the regular $59.99 price, this loyal customer reward is an absolute steal. As a cost-conscious Spidey fan myself, I found the quick upgrade process smooth and painless.
Subscribe to PlayStation Plus Extra or Premium
Here‘s an easy way to access the Remastered version at no extra cost: simply subscribe to the new PlayStation Plus Extra or Premium plans! Both membership tiers include unlimited access to Marvel‘s Spider-Man Remastered in the games catalog.
PlayStation Plus Extra starts at just $14.99 monthly, while Premium goes for $17.99 per month. With all the games and perks included, either provides immense value—especially if you redeem the 7-day free trial before getting charged!
Streaming games over the internet may not be ideal for some, but it‘s a small price to pay for web-swinging as the Amazing Spider-Man in stunning 4K resolution. Definitely give the free trial a spin if you haven‘t already!
Redeem the Remastered Code from Select AMD or Nvidia GPUs
Got your eye on a new, high-end graphics card for your gaming PC? Look out for qualifying AMD Radeon RX 6000 series or Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 series models that come bundled with Marvel‘s Spider-Man Remastered!
For instance, AMD‘s Radeon RX 6950 XT, 6750 XT, and 6650 XT models all include free download codes for the remastered release. Similarly, Nvidia RTX 3090 Ti, 3090, 3080 Ti and 3080 GPUs pack in free game codes.
If you were planning a GPU upgrade anyway, grabbing one of these graphics cards nets you Spider-Man Remastered for PC at no extra cost. Be sure to redeem your code before it expires for smooth 60fps web-slinging!
Take Advantage of Seasonal Sales and Discounts
While Marvel‘s Spider-Man Remastered is still a fairly new release, it‘s already seen some enticing discounts during major seasonal sales events.
For example, the game received a 25% price cut down to $44.99 during the recent PlayStation Holiday Sale. Likewise, the PC version saw a similar 25% discount on the Epic Games Store Holiday Sale.
Though it may take some patience, keeping an eye out for limited-time promotions, retailer sales and coupon codes can help secure the lowest price possible. As a bargain-hunter myself, I‘m always scouring the internet for Spidey deals!
Share Digital Access with a Friend (PS5)
On PlayStation 5, you can take advantage of console sharing with a friend who already owns Marvel‘s Spider-Man Remastered digitally.
By designating each other‘s consoles as your "primary" system, you can access each other‘s digital libraries—essentially scoring two games for the price of one! While online-only, it‘s a clever trick for duos on a budget.
Rent or Buy Used (Console Only)
Looking to minimize costs even further? On consoles, you can rent Marvel‘s Spider-Man Remastered from services like GameFly, or buy a used physical copy at GameStop for around $40.
Renting allows short-term access at just a fraction of full price. Pre-owned copies drive the cost down by up to 50% permanently. Since the Remastered version is only available bundled with Miles Morales, be sure to rent or find both games together.
Wait for Game Pass for PC (Potentially)
While not guaranteed yet, industry insiders speculate Marvel‘s Spider-Man Remastered could appear on Xbox Game Pass for PC sometime in 2023. Several major PlayStation titles have recently joined the catalog.
Should this prediction come true, Game Pass members would gain unlimited access to Spider-Man Remastered for just $9.99 monthly. As an avid PC gamer myself, I‘ve got my fingers crossed for this one!
Borrow from a Pal or the Library (Console)
As a final budget option for consoles, borrowing a physical copy from a generous friend or local library can enable completely free access for a limited time.
Just be sure to treat their game with care and return it promptly—ideally with a plate of Aunt May‘s famous wheatcakes as thanks! Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man approves.
Admittedly, Marvel‘s Spider-Man Remastered carries a full $59.99 price tag across PS5 and PC. But as a fellow superhero gaming fan on a tight budget, I‘m here to tell you: you‘ve got options.
Follow the guidance above, and you‘ll be web-swinging through Peter Parker‘s enhanced adventure in no time, without emptying your wallet. My personal recommendation? Snag thevalue-packed Miles Morales Ultimate Edition—you won‘t regret it!
Stay thrifty out there, friends. And whether you go budget or premium, enjoy the breathtaking Marvel‘s New York playground. Your neighborhood Spider-Man will be right there swinging alongside you—up, up and away!
