If you have a copy of Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered on PC, you'll be happy to know that there's now a Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered PC modding tool available on Nexus Mods. Basically, modders are now able to "extract and replace any asset in the game's asset archives", which is apparently foundational to both creating and installing mods. There's also a dedicated Spider-Man Discord modding community with over 7 thousand members, so eventually we should hopefully see some cool mods. Expecting something like a fan expansion or similar is a reach right now, but in a year or so it might not be, which is exciting.
While the Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered PC modding tool was only published earlier today, it already has over 3,400 unique downloads and 16 thousand views. With the release of these tools, we'll definitely see some interesting and potentially divisive mods coming out, like the Non-Newtonian New York Mod that was released a mere two and a half hours after the launch of the modding tool.
What kind of Spider-Man Remastered PC mods could we see?
If you're wondering what on Earth the Non-Newtonian New York Mod does, it "replaces Newton's Prism artifacts with the Stars and Stripes". What does that mean in English? Well, it replaces all of the rainbow-colored flags with American flags. It's a simple mod, but it was controversial enough to be promptly removed from Nexus Mods altogether. In this case, "Non-Newtonian" appears to be a veiled homophobic jab, given that the rainbow flag is widely accepted as the LGBTQ+ symbol. That's almost certainly why the mod was quickly removed. This showcases the dark side of Spider-Man modding, so hopefully we'll see more positive mods in future.
While the Non-Newtonian New York Mod got deleted very quickly, the same cannot be said for the co-op and PvP code strings that were found within the Spider-Man Remastered PC version. The abandoned multiplayer mode looks like it might have had Peter Parker and Miles Morales competing to become the superior Spider-Man, so to speak. Maybe they would have competed to see who could deliver pizza the fastest?
While this find is cool and all, the biggest question is this: will multiplayer modes be included in Marvel's Spider-Man 2? Going by the original trailer and this recent discovery, it seems like it's definitely a possibility.
