Marvel’s Spider-Man PS4 Updated With PS5 Skins Including Amazing Spider-Man Film Suit November 22, 2020

The guys at Insomniac really game through for us this weekend. The three (previously) PS5-exclusive skins that were created for the PS5 remastered edition of the game, including the highly demanded suit based on the suit designed for the Amazing Spider-Man films, have just been added to the PS4 version of the game in a free patch.

The new patch, version 1.19, isn’t very big. If you’ve already had 1.18 installed it should only clock in at around 348MB. The new update will also allow players to transfer their PS4 save progress to the PS5 remastered version. This was a feature that is already offered in Miles Morales at launch, so it’s nice to see it return here.

Spider-Man is out now exclusively for the PS4. Spider-Man: Remastered is out now for the PS5 as part of the Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Bundle.

This holiday season, Starbucks is offering a series of new beverages, including one we will be trying out for the first time, the Peppermint Mocha. Take a look at this quick video and hear our Editor’s initial thoughts about it.

Shenmue III Released on GOG and Steam November 20, 2020

PC players upset at the exclusivity deal Epic Games Store has held over several titles can rest a little easier today. One of the biggest EGS-exclusive titles has just announced they are now offering their game on alternate PC distribution platforms including GOG.com and Steam starting today. The game I’m talking about is Shenmue III.

Unlike previous EGS exclusives like Control, Shenmue III was crowdfunded by fans…and the fans who funded the game were (to put it mildly) displeased when the developers announced their intention to only support the EGS PC marketplace at launch. Other developers have since cited the crowd backlash of that announcement has prevented them from accepting similar deals with Epic.

Regardless, if you don’t have a copy of Shenmue III on PC yet you can purchase the game right now with its season pass at a discounted rate from your digital retailer of choice.

Shenmue III is out now for PC and PS4.
