PS4's Spider-Man Will Get New Game Plus Mode Before The Heist DLC [Update]
It's sometime in the next week.
Insomniac's Marvel's Spider-Man launched to a warm reception, but fans of the PS4 exclusive have long been clamoring for a New Game Plus mode. In September 2018, Insomniac teased that the mode was in the works, and now the developer has revealed New Game Plus is on its way.
In a tweet, Insomniac said that New Game Plus is "coming soon" as a part of Update 1.07. Although the patch was initially announced to launch on October 17, Insomniac has since clarified that is not the case. [Update: Insomniac has since confirmed that Update 1.07 will release prior to The Heist, which is scheduled for October 23. Update 2: Both Update 1.07 and 1.08 have released.]
The Heist is the first piece of a three-part DLC expansion called The City That Never Sleeps. According to Insomniac, the DLC adds new story missions where a robbery "entangles Spider-Man and MJ with an old flame from Peter Parker's past, Felicia Hardy, aka Black Cat." Felicia is a part of a side-quest in Marvel's Spider-Man, but only appears in recorded messages. This DLC marks her first major role in the game.
