Video game development is a flowing process; Things change all the time through development to the start and beyond. One thing that has changed with the upcoming Spider-Man PS4 game, which will be released next week, was the size of the puddles in a particular scene. This has led to the claim that developer Insomniac Games has downgraded the graphics of the game in some way, and now the developer has emphasized that there was "no downgrade".
This issue took off thanks to this popular Reddit Post (via IGN), which shows more puddles in an older, E3 trailer for Spider-Man and fewer puddles in a recent video. On Twitter, Insomniac wrote that it had changed the size of the puddles, but stressed: "There is no downgrade at all." Some believed that Insomniac had to downsize the graphics to meet the performance requirements, but it seems that this is not the case.
There is only a change in the size of the puddle, there is no downgrade at all

The community manager James Stevenson said in his own tweet : "The puddles that were moved had nothing to do with performance." Why then remove them? "Pretty sure it was a design / art / usability reason" Stevenson explained . "In any case, that was not the performance, because we have spots with tons of puddles in-game with no performance problem."
Other Spider-Man fans have criticized the look of Peter Parker's suit in more recent followers But that's because Insomniac uses a different, better technology today than at the beginning of development. Importantly, the suit should look good while Peter Parker swings from building to building.
"Bright sunlight brings concrete to blow and look good. Plus, our post-effects (especially DOF and motion blur technology) are much better in 2018, which makes things smoother when pulled, but that's because Motion should look good. " he said
GameSpots PS4 test for Spider-Man will be released on September 4, a few days before the start of the game on September 7. While the game has not ended yet, Insomniac has announced that the first DLC extension will be released in October 23.
