Players outraged over PS5 Spider-Man Remaster cross-save controversy

After Insomniac Games revealed that saves from the PS4 version of Marvel’s Spider-Man wouldn’t transfer over to the remastered PS5 version of the game, many players turned to Twitter to voice their concerns.

When Spider-Man: Miles Morales was first shown off during the PS5 showcase back in mid-September 2020, fans were blown away by how good the game looked. After the fact, however, details about the how the game would be released were revealed – including how the Ultimate Edition of the game would include a remastered version of the original Spider-Man game on PS5.

Now, developer Insomniac Games has clarified that the PS4 version of Marvel’s Spider-Man and the remastered version coming to the PS5 – as a part of the Miles Morales Ultimate Edition – are two separate games, meaning the saves from one version of the game cannot transfer to the other.

Needless to say, after the news went viral, many fans were not happy and took to Twitter in order to voice their displeasure – with some major names cropping up.

One Twitter user commented that they thought the news was lazy and that it would alienate customers, which it very well might.

Content creator and streamer ‘djchrisv’ offered a simple but effective response to the news, also voicing his displeasure.

One commenter had a less intense take than some people, but still agreed that news wasn’t exactly the best in the world and that, in his opinion, the remaster seemed like a “cash grab”.

Twitter user and YouTuber ‘BlackRockShadow’ also voiced their displeasure with the news.

As previously mentioned, some notable names got involved with the conversation, too. Gamertagradio co-host Danny Peña, also gave a one-word comment that definitely got his point across, while IGN host Brian Altano chimmed in on the news, as well.

At the same time, however, some players weren’t affected by the news at all, with some even confused as to why there were any complaints at all about it.

One said that, while he understands the frustration, restarting the game again in his eyes is going to be worth it.

Another user compared this situation to Modern Warfare Remastered, stating that player stats didn’t transfer over in that case so why should it here.

All in all, it’ll be interesting to see Insomniac and Sony’s response when it comes this controversy. Given how much notoriety it’s gotten, the company might be willing to reverse course and allow players to transfer their saves, although this is purely speculation.

Valorant’s Act 3 Battlepass includes a new Epilogue Chapter where you can earn bonus rewards. Here is a look at the bonus rewards and how you can add them to your collection. 

Act 3 in Valorant is in full swing and Riot is giving players more ways to earn rewards with the Act 3 Battlepass. Like with all Battlepass rewards, these items will be exclusive and you won’t be able to get them any other way. Here are the rewards and how you can earn them.

How to get to the Epilogue Chapter

The Battlepass currently consists of 10 chapters with five tiers per chapter. You can begin the Act 3 epilogue chapter after you complete the first 50 tiers of the Battlepass. There are two ways to complete the Battlepass:

  1. Gain tiers by getting experience from playing and completing daily and weekly quests.
  2. Pay 300 Valorant Points to gain an individual tier.

If you want to complete the Battlepass and reach the epilogue without paying real money for Valorant Points, you will need to play a lot.

Completing the daily quests every day is extremely important, as you can earn 4,000 extra experience per day doing this. Getting the weekly quests done is absolutely mandatory, as this is where you get a huge bulk of your experience.

Rewards

Like the other chapters, the Epilogue Chapter has five tiers, each with an exclusive reward. Here they are:

  1. Discotech Gun Buddy
  2. 10 Radianite Points
  3. 10 Radianite Points
  4. 10 Radianite Points
  5. Versus // Vandal + Phantom Card

Epilogue Chapter Rewards

You will only be able to earn these rewards through experience and you cannot pay Valorant Points for them. This means that you will need to get them started as soon as possible to ensure you have time to finish them up.

You aren’t in too much of a rush yet, however, as Act 3 in Valorant doesn’t end for another 77 days. This should give you plenty of time to get through the Battlepass and get the rewards. Just remember to keep grinding away those games and quests each day to get as much experience as you can.
