The recent release of Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered on PC has been great so far; the PC port is considered one of the better ports by Sony. However, there are some issues here and there that the developer is now fixing.

Nixxes Software released a small patch that delivered several bug fixes. Improvements to both NVIDIA DLSS and HBAO+ have been made. Windows version check system is improved to reduce the odds of false positives. The game’s stability when using Alt-tab is now better thanks to the patch.

Release Notes
  • Fixed various ray-tracing-related crashes.
  • Fixed the issue where ray-traced reflections in stainless steel were rendered distorted.
  • Fixed an issue that could freeze the game if the player would switch between graphics presets during cut-scenes.
  • Fixed an issue where the Side Mission popups would be stretched when playing in a widescreen resolution.
  • Fixed various visual glitches.
Known Issues
  • Ray-tracing options may be unavailable in the menu, even with compatible hardware. Ray-tracing is disabled when hardware or drivers are not compatible, or when the DirectX 12 Agility SDK is not functional. We have seen some reports of users that indicate this SDK is not working for them. We are investigating this issue.
  • Some players cannot progress during the Spider-Hack Mission. This is a frame rate-related bug that only occurs when well above 60 FPS. While we work on a fix, we have a workaround in place. Restart the latest checkpoint, go to the Graphics Menu, set the game to Exclusive Fullscreen, and the Refresh Rate to 60Hz. You should now be able to progress. Afterward, you can switch back to your preferred settings.
  • Some players cannot take a picture of the Empire State Building. Some players have reported being unable to take a photo of the Empire State Building, blocking progression. So far, we have only been able to reproduce this on Intel GPUs. Intel is investigating this issue.

The complete patch notes are available on Steam.

The developer promised that a new patch is already in the works. The upcoming patch will be bigger and will have additional features, improvements, and bug fixes.
