Good news then, wannabe wallcrawlers – Peter Parker's adventure is now available as a standalone purchase on PlayStation 5.

Bizarrely, anyone that owns the PS4 version and the season pass will be unable to add the game to their library, and will instead be prompted to download the PS4 version instead.

Perhaps given Sony's issues with their console downloading the wrong versions of games it's to be expected, but we'll update this as we hear more.

The game sets up the events of Miles Morales, so if you haven't played it yet, start with the remaster.

"The relevance of this game can’t be overstated -- not just in comparison to our own cultural issues in the real world, but with the way it draws parallels to corrupt people in power," it reads.

"Miles Morales is much more than a game about being Spider-Man. It should be remembered as a game that inspires hope during trying times."
