Spider-Man in the rain on the PC version of the game.

Spider-Man Remastered on PC has swept across the internet since its launch earlier this month but developer Nixxes Software hasn’t stopped now that the game has launched on PC. Today, Nixxes released an update for Spider-Man that promises to fix the notorious ray-tracing crashes that some users had been experiencing. The crashes had been reported on social media, typically for users with certain models of graphics cards. However, in the v1.817 update Nixxes assures those affected that the crashes have now been fixed. Check out the full patch notes for the Spider-Man Remastered PC v1.817 update below.

Spider-Man PC Update v1.817 Patch Notes

Release Notes

  • Fixed various ray-tracing related crashes.
  • Improved Windows version check, to prevent false positives.
  • Visual improvements to HBAO+.
  • Fixed the issue where ray-traced reflections in stainless steel were rendered distorted.
  • Various visual improvements to NVIDIA DLSS.
  • Fixed an issue that could freeze the game if the player would switch between graphics presets during cut-scenes.
  • Fixed an issue where the Side Mission popups would be stretched when playing in a widescreen resolution.
  • Improvements related to stability issues when using Alt-Tab.
  • Fixed various visual glitches.

Known Issues

  • Ray-tracing options may be unavailable in the menu, even with compatible hardware.

    Ray-tracing is disabled when hardware or drivers are not compatible, or when the DirectX 12 Agility SDK is not functional. We have seen some reports of users that indicate this SDK is not working for them. We are investigating this issue.
  • Some players cannot progress during the Spider-Hack Mission.

    This is a frame rate related bug that only occurs when well above 60 FPS. While we work on a fix, we have a workaround in place. Restart the latest checkpoint, go to the Graphics Menu, set the game to Exclusive Fullscreen and the Refresh Rate to 60Hz. You should now be able to progress. Afterwards you can switch back to your preferred settings.
  • Some players cannot take a picture of the Empire State Building.

    Some players have reported being unable to take a photo of the Empire State Building, blocking progression. So far, we have only been able to reproduce this on Intel GPUs. Intel is investigating this issue.

Hopefully the above known issues will be fixed in future patch notes for Spider-Man Remastered on PC.
