Spider-Man Remastered's PC version has recieved its second patch
Nixxes have just released Spider-Man Remastered's second PC patch, offering PC gamers new features, lots of bug fixes, and visual improvements in some instances.
One of the most noteworthy additions to Spider-Man Remastered is support for two sharpness sliders. One of these sharpness sliders applies specifically to gamers to utilise DLSS or FidelityFX 2.0, and one slider is an independent sharpness slider that is independent from upscaling sharpness. Additionally, all PC gamers will be able to play Spider-Man Remastered in 32:9 or 21:9 mode, regardless of the aspect ratio of your monitor.
Aside from these changes, Nixxes has implemented a large number of visual fixes and changes that should improve Spider-Man's overall gameplay and visual experience on PC. Some of these changes are also Steam Deck specific, which is great news for owners of Valve's PC gaming handheld.
Full release notes for Spider-Man Remastered's v1.824.1.0 patch are available to read below.
After last week's first patch, another update is now live for Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered. This patch contains dozens of fixes and improvements and includes a couple of brand-new features. You may need to restart Steam to see this update.
Since we launched the game, we have seen many requests for the addition of a sharpness slider. With this update, we bring you not one, but two of them. In the Display menu you can now use a sharpness slider when NVIDIA DLSS or AMD FSR 2.0 is activated. You can finetune the sharpness for each upscaling technique to taste in ten different steps.
In the Graphics menu you will also find a Sharpness slider, that works independently from the sharpness slider for upscaling. This slider controls the in-game sharpness, like the sharpness slider that was already available in Photo Mode. When using DLSS or FSR 2.0, you can combine both sliders.
The third new feature is an option to force the aspect ratio of the game to values like 32:9 or 21:9 on any screen. This gives all players the possibility to experience Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered in ultrawide aspect ratios.
