Spider-Man PS4 Teaser Reveals Black Cat In First DLC
The cat strikes again.
Sony has released a short video teasing the first DLC for Marvel's Spider-Man, the upcoming open-world action game developed by Insomniac Games exclusively for the PS4. The video, which you can watch above, offers the first look at Felicia Hardy, better known as Black Cat, sometimes-villain and love interest for Spider-Man. The teaser shows Felicia inviting Spidey to chase and capture her, and we get a glimpse at a sequence where the web-slinger is running along the side of a moving train.
The first DLC for Marvel's Spider-Man is called "The Heist" and will be available from October 23. "As you play the base game, you'll realize that Felicia Hardy, aka Black Cat, is back in town and she's leaving clues around town to toy with Spider-Man," James Stevenson, community director at Insomniac, previously explained. "In Marvel's Spider-Man: The Heist, she finally reveals herself. Featuring new missions and challenges, as well as a brand new faction of enemies and three additional suits to unlock."
This DLC is chapter one in a three-part series that, as a whole, Insomniac is referring to as "The City That Never Sleeps." The second DLC chapter is called "Turf Wars" and launches in November. The third part of the series is titled "Silver Lining" and is set to arrive in December. A bundle that has all three chapters is available now on the US PlayStation Store for $25. However, individual chapters can also be purchased for $10 each when they're released. A Digital Deluxe version of the game is also available for $80/£65, and it has the full game as well as all the DLC.
Discussing game length, Stevenson previously confirmed how long Spider-Man takes to complete, saying it's around 20 hours for the main campaign and side-quests on the default difficulty. However, those who want to be completionists will spend "a lot longer" in the game.
Spider-Man launches on September 7 and reviews will be published on September 4 at 7:00 AM PT / 10:00 AM ET.
