Spider-Man Remastered players will be able to pick up where they left off.
Spider-Man developer Insomniac, who previously said that save files won't transfer between the base PS4 version and PS5 remaster, has today announced that it's been working on a way to make it possible for saves to carry over.
Insomniac revealed on Twitter that it's currently working on one more update for Spider-Man on PS4 that will allow players to export their PS4 save files to Spider-Man Remastered on PS5.
The patch will also introduce three new suits to the PS4 game, which were only recently revealed for the PS5 remaster and thought to be exclusive. According to the developer, the update will arrive around Thanksgiving in the US, which essentially means at some point in the last week of the month, so a little after launch.
We have heard you - in an upcoming update for #SpiderManPS4, we will add the ability to export your save to Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered. This update will also add the three new suits from Remastered to the PS4 game. We expect to bring you this update around Thanksgiving. pic.twitter.com/EqoKnto3FV

It's worth keeping in mind that the Spider-Man PS5 remaster is only available in the Ultimate Edition of Miles Morales, and - so far, at least - not available for sale separately. Sony previously also said that it doesn't plan on offering any free upgrades for existing owners.
Miles Morales and the Spider-Man remaster will be released beginning November 12. If you do not intend to fork out extra for the remaster, your existing PS4 copy will work on PS5 through backwards compatibility, though obviously without any of the upgrades in the remaster.
