Spider-Man PS4 Shows Off First DLC Spidey Suits
Take a look at the three new costumes you'll get in The Heist.
The first post-launch content for Insomniac's PS4 Spider-Man game is nearly here. The Heist, the first of three planned DLC chapters in The City That Never Sleeps series, is set to arrive next Tuesday, October 23, bringing a slew of new enemies, missions, and challenges to take on. It also adds a trio of new suits, which we've now gotten our first look at. [Update: Insomniac announced on Twitter that Spider-Man's 1.07 update will not arrive on October 17 as originally planned, but is now slated as "coming soon." The story has been amended to reflect that.]
In a post on the PlayStation Blog, Insomniac unveiled the three new Spider-Man suits players will be able to get in The Heist. Like most of the other suits in the game, two of them are drawn directly from the comics: the red and black suit from Scarlet Spider II, as well as the Spider-UK suit from the Spider-Verse. Rounding out the trio is the Resilient Suit, an original design by Marvel illustrator Gabriele Dell'Otto. You can take a look at all three below.
The Heist centers around Peter Parker's love interest/villain, Felicia Hardy--better known as Black Cat. It will be followed by two more DLC chapters later this year: Turf Wars, which will arrive in November, and Silver Lining, which is slated to release in December. You can purchase The Heist individually for $10 USD, or get all three chapters together in The City That Never Sleeps bundle for $25.
That isn't the extent of the new content on the way to Marvel's Spider-Man. Insomniac is also planning to roll out the game's 1.07 update "soon," which will add New Game Plus mode, allowing you to play through the story again with all of the suits, gadgets, and skills you've unlocked. The update will also introduce two new trophies to earn, as well as an Ultimate Difficulty setting for an even greater challenge.
Marvel's Spider-Man was met with critical and commercial success when it launched for PS4 last month. GameSpot awarded it a 9/10 in our Spider-Man review and called it "a superior Spider-Man experience that leaves a lasting impression." The game has also been a big hit with fans, breaking sales records and having one of the highest Platinum trophy completion rates on PS4.
