Instomniak Games may be the most exciting studio in games right now, as it is simultaneously on the PlayStation 5 titles except Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morals and Ratchet & Clank: Split. But it’s one of the toughest teams in the industry, and it’s not going to stop there: the company announced overnight that it’s redesigning Marvel’s Spider-Man for Sony’s next gen system, and fans can buy it with new ones as part of the Ultimate Edition package! The new edition includes the full original campaign with City That Never Sleeps DLC campaigns.
