Insomniac Games has provided more details on upcoming DLC for its Spider-Man game, laying out a schedule for when the additional content will be available. Posting on the PlayStation Blog, James Stevenson, community director at the studio, confirmed the first DLC will be called "The Heist" and it'll 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," Stevenson 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."
The Heist will be followed by Turf Wars in November and then Silver Lining in December. Together, these three chapters form a DLC pack called "The City That Never Sleeps." A bundle featuring all three chapters is available now on the US PlayStation Store for $25, but individual chapters can also be purchased for $10 each when they're released. Alternatively, a Digital Deluxe version of the game is available for $80/£65, and it has the full game as well as all the DLC.
Stevenson also previously revealed how long Spider-Man takes to complete, saying it's roughly 20 hours for just the main campaign and side-quests on the default difficulty. For those who want to be completionists, however, it's "a lot longer." Spider-Man launches on September 7 and reviews are set to be published on September 4 at 7:00 AM PT / 10:00 AM ET. Keep an eye on the site around then to get our verdict.
In the mean time, you can see Spidey's big villains, the Sinister Six--which is composed of Electro, Scorpion, Vulture, Shocker, Rhino and (probably) Doctor Octopus--in a new gameplay trailer.
