Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered arrives on PC today

Over the past year, our team has worked closely with our friends at Insomniac Games to bring this original Marvel story and PlayStation hit to PC. We would like to introduce a member of the Nixxes team to help you better understand our support for ultra-wide monitors and multi-screen setups*.

Graphics programmer Hilze Vonck is an avid ultra-widescreen gamer and worked on the technical implementation of the ultra-wide aspect ratio for the PC version. Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered“I’ve been using a 21:9 ultrawide monitor for five years now. For me, support for ultrawide resolutions in games is very important. For gamers who invest heavily in their setup, it’s possible We want to give you the opportunity to play the game in the best way possible and seeing it on an ultrawide or triple monitor setup really makes a big difference. is!”

Lead Software Engineer Coen Frauenfelder explains that one of the reasons for going all out with ultra-wide monitor support was the positive feedback from the gaming community on 21:9 support in other PC games. “We originally planned to support 21:9, but after some internal testing, we decided to expand further and add support for 32:9 screens and 48:9 triple monitor setups. Games are a great fit for that, and swinging through Marvel’s New York City on an ultra-wide screen is a whole different immersion experience.”

The PC version of Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered Fully optimized for ultra-wide games. Many cutscenes, as well as gameplay, support panoramic aspect ratios up to 32:9. Coen talks about the challenges he had to overcome for the Nixxes to make this possible.

“It’s relatively easy to implement ultra-wide support in general gameplay. The big challenge is to support it in cinematics that artists have specifically designed to be viewed on 16:9 screens. Outside of that view area there are a lot of things going on that need to be fixed, for example a character may freeze or suddenly disappear.An easy way is to put a black border in the cut scene. and making these areas invisible on ultra wide screens, but we wanted to make sure that PC gamers could take full advantage of their screens.Our QA team meticulously performed all cut scenes in ultra wide view. We have carefully examined it and listed all the details that our engineers and artists had to change.”

Coen emphasizes how difficult it was to do all that right. His Hilze enthusiasm for it means he had to put a lot of work into the technical side of implementing the ultra-wide support. “

As a result, cinematics Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered It can be perfectly displayed on a PC with an aspect ratio of up to 32:9. Using a wider aspect ratio, such as a triple monitor setup, will blur the outer edges during cutscenes. This is necessary to block areas from view where visual errors can occur. Apart from working on the engine for ultra-wide support, Hilze also worked on: It took me a while, but I think it’s really great. “

Outside of gameplay and cinematics, Nixxes systems engineers ensured that the user interface and menus supported widescreen aspect ratios. If you use an ultra-wide monitor, you can change the HUD position to another position.
