This is a big week for Marvel’s web-head with the release of Far From Home and now we have another way to celebrate with Spider-Man on the PS4. In a not too surprising turn of events, it looks like Insomniac Games is placing a few of the new costumes from the film into the game as a free update. Sadly, it will not be all of the new suits we have seen for Spider-Man in the film yet, but it is a free update and we cannot look a gift-horse in the mouth here. More so when all that is needed is the update for the game that should be live as you are reading this.
If you are looking to miss spoilers for the film, you do not need to worry here as the Stealth Suit and Upgraded Suit have been shown in all of the promos for the film. Those would be the two new suits coming to Spider-Man here if you did not figure that out. All of which look to be just cosmetic like the others in the past and offer up nothing new in terms of gameplay. Unless there is something sneaking behind the scenes for it all and stats are boosted. None of it has been mentioned yet so you will need to download the Spider-Man update to find out for certain. It is a free one, so why not?
While we’re busy working away here at Insomniac Games, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to once again team up with Sony Interactive Entertainment, Marvel, and Sony Pictures Entertainment to celebrate the release of Spider-Man: Far From Home in theatres now! As such, we have released a new update for the game via Patch 1.16 that will bring two free brand-new suits from Spider-Man: Far From Home to the game.
After you have built the Advanced Suit early in Marvel’s Spider-Man, you are able to switch between suits during the story — so if you have already reached this stage in-game, you can use the Spider-Man: Far from Home Upgraded Suit, or the Spider-Man: Far From Home Stealth Suit right now. Before you rush off to download the update — here’s a couple of new images showing those brand-new suits in game.
We’ve had a great time adding free additional content to Marvel’s Spider-Man, such as the Webbed Suit in December, and suits celebrating the Fantastic Four in January. You can get even more additional suits for Marvel’s Spider-Man by purchasing the Marvel’s Spider-Man: The City That Never Sleeps expansion series. The series tells a post-game story over three DLC chapters, and each one includes three new suits to unlock that you can use in the rest of the game and in New Game+. The series begins with Black Cat returning to Marvel’s New York, but players quickly realize she’s a part of something much bigger that will entangle Spider-Man with the notorious Hammerhead.
Did you think you were done with Spider-Man or did you figure that you would be seeing a few more suits given the film? Were these the two suits you were expecting to see or did you think some of the other ones teased for the film would make it in? Do you think this will be the end of the updates for the game given the rest of the releases or will we see more? Let us all know down in the comments and then feel free to discuss. As more for Spider-Man makes its way out there, we will add it all here. Just be sure to keep checking back in here for all of that and more.
