It’s been unclear, for a few months, whether or not Spider-Man: Miles Morales, the cool-looking expansion/not-expansion to 2018's Spider-Man would be coming to PS4. Well, it’s clear now. It’ll be joined by two other PS5 “exclusives”—a word that lost all meaning years ago and is now just a sort of incomprehensible shriek video game executives make sometimes—in Horizon Forbidden West and Sackboy: A Big Adventure.

After a new gameplay demo of Miles Morales during today’s PlayStation 5 showcase, Sony revealed on the PlayStation blog that the game is coming to PS4 as well as PS5. The standard edition will cost $49.99, while a new Ultimate Edition of Spider-Man that includes Miles Morales and the original game remastered on PS5 will cost $69.99.

In a press release, Sony said that Horizon and Sackboy will be in a similar boat, launching on PS4 and PS5 at the same time. All three games will include free PS5 upgrades.

Here’s what developer Insomniac said about the PS5 remaster of Spider-Man:

“The remaster for the PS5 is no simple up-res, as many of the game’s art assets have been completely updated to take advantage of the PS5 console’s horsepower. You’ll see better-looking characters with improved skin, eyes, hair, and facial animation (including our new, next-generation Peter Parker). You’ll also see ray-traced reflections and ambient shadows, improved lighting, more pedestrians and vehicles stretching further into the distance, and the same optional performance mode offered on Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, allowing you to finally play the game at a targeted 60fps frame rate. We’ll be supporting near-instant loading, 3D audio, and the DualSense controller’s haptic feedback.”

Miles Morales and Sackboy will launch alongside the PS5 on November 12. Horizon is coming out sometime next year.
