Update: Marvel's Spider-Man is no longer available on PS Now.

No, Marvel's Spider-Man is not getting a PC port, at least not yet. While Sony has committed to bringing Horizon Zero Dawn over to PC later this year, guaranteed PC versions of PS5 exclusives aren't quite here yet. Still, you can technically play Marvel's Spider-Man on your PC for a short time.

The newest game, Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, released on Nov. 12, 2021 and stars Miles as a new hero on the block, with his own list of suits to collect.

Insomniac Games is also working on some additional superhero games, with Marvel's Spider-Man 2 and Marvel's Wolverine in development exclusively for the PS5.

Starting this month, Marvel's Spider-Man is being added to PlayStation Now (PS Now), Sony's game streaming subscription. This is part of Sony's initiative to add more premium games for a very limited time, making the service more attractive. Marvel's Spider-Man will be available on PS Now through July 7, 2020. If you're new to the service, you might not know that you can then use PS Now to stream the game to your PC. Here's how to do it.

  • But like, what's even the point, pretty sure it's locked at 30 FPS :)
  • Because it’s one of the best games released in the last few years.
  • I have PS Now and my experience with it is hit or miss depending on the game I'm playing. For example, Killzone: Shadow Fall is unplayable because of framerate and lag issues simultaneously. While Horizon Zero Dawn runs flawlessly most of the time with little or no noticable lag. Even with the games that run well, I still have a problem with the resolution. Not only is it 720p, it is blurred to hell for some reason and I can't find a setting to change it. It hurts my eyes to play it on my 55" 4k TV. I know it's a blurring issue with PS Now because the 720p XBOX 360 games look just fine without blurring even when played on the actual 360. So I know it's not just the fact that I'm playing a 720p game on a 4k TV. If they can fix those issues, I think it would be an awesome service.
