Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered latest patch went live a few hours ago, and it improves the PC port even more, with fixes for some lingering bugs and issues. The developer also reassured us that they are investigating ongoing problems.

Today’s patch adds autosave backups for specific points in the story. Now, players won’t lose progress if their main autosave is corrupted. The crashing issues which occurred when using wide FOV are addressed, and the quality of fabric textures in cutscenes at 1080p or lower resolution is improved.
