The first post-launch content of the Insomniac PS4 Spider-Man game is almost here. The Heist, the first of the three DLC chapters planned in the series The City That Never Sleeps, is expected to arrive next Tuesday, October 23, bringing a lot of new enemies, missions and challenges to face. It also adds a trio of new suits, which we have now seen for the first time.
In a post on the PlayStation blog, Insomniac revealed the three new Spider-Man costumes that players can get in The Heist. Like most of the other costumes in the game, two of them are drawn directly from the comics: the red and black suit of Scarlet Spider II, as well as the Spider-Verse Spider-UK suit. Completing the trio is the Resistant Suit, an original design by Marvel illustrator Gabriele Dell & Otto. You can take a look at the three below.
The Heist focuses on the love interest / villain of Peter Parker, Felicia Hardy, better known as Black Cat. Two other DLC chapters will follow later this year: Turf Wars, which will arrive in November, and Silver Lining, which will be released in December. You can buy The Heist individually for $ 10 USD, or collect all three chapters in the The City That Never Sleeps package for $ 25.
That's not the scope of the new content on the way to Marvel's Spider-Man soon. Before The Heist, Insomniac will launch the 1.07 update of the game tomorrow, October 17, which will add the New Game Plus mode, which will allow you to replay the story with all the costumes, gadgets and skills that you have unlocked. The update will also present two new trophies to win, as well as a maximum difficulty setting for an even greater challenge.
Marvel's Spider-Man met critical and commercial success when it was released for PS4 last month. GameSpot awarded it a 9/10 in our review of Spider-Man and called it "a superior Spider-Man experience that leaves a lasting impression." The game has also been a big hit among fans, breaking sales records and having one of the highest rates of platinum trophies on PS4.
