Spider-Man Remastered coming to Sony consoles was a relief for many. Fans have been flooding to Twitter to talk about the game on Steam, posting tons of in-game snapshots via the photo mode. However, as we all know, just because it’s on a new system and remastered doesn’t mean it’s flawless.
Bugs do happen, and as such, certain patches and fixes need to be implemented. Thankfully, the first Steam Update for Spider-Man Remastered has come!
To keep it loose, many of the fixes have to do with raytracing and using certain graphics resolutions on your PC. They claim to have fixed various rendering errors, having certain icons not be where they should be when playing in widescreen mode, and more. They also made sure that certain PC system setups wouldn’t screw with the programming or create what they labeled false positives, thus causing issues with gameplay or causing your system as you try to swing around New York.
The notes also acknowledged that there are still some issues causing problems for certain players. One of which is that a certain Spider-Man mission is unprogressable due to a glitch. Also, apparently, certain players with Intel PCs can’t take a picture of the Empire State Building, which would hold up progress on the Photos of Landmarks side mission.
It’s good to know that the team is very much hard at work on this. If you yourself have an issue with the game, you should document it via the Steam services and hopefully, it’ll be settled.
Even with these issues, Spider-Man Remastered is very much a great game that many should try out now that it’s on PC. The team at Insomniac went to incredible lengths to ensure that they got the perfect Spider-Man character in the game as well as a worthy story for the character. The combat system also feels true to Spidey and the various gadgets that he can build.
If you haven’t already, give this one a shot, especially now that some of its bugs have been fixed.
