New Game Plus will allow you to replay through Spider-Man with all of the wall crawlers’ abilities and skills that have been unlocked in a previous save. Although it hasn’t been confirmed for this game, most New Game Plus modes also increase enemies’ health and damage output. A few, like the one in Batman: Arkham Knight, even make minor changes to certain cutscenes and add late-game enemies to the earlier fights. Insomniac doesn’t have an estimate for the New Game Plus mode’s release date yet.
New Game Plus isn’t the only post-launch addition coming to Spider-Man. Insomniac has also revealed a three-part DLC expansion for the game titled The City That Never Sleeps. The first part, called The Heist, releases on October 23. The Heist focuses on the return of one of Peter Parker’s former flames, Felicia Hardy. Also known as the Black Cat, Felicia is an ex-jewel thief who abandons a life of crime in an attempt to be worthy of Spider-Man’s affection. Felicia is referenced throughout the main game in one of the side-quests, promising “her Spider” that she’ll see him again soon.
The second part of The City That Never Sleeps is called Turf Wars and will be releasing in November. The final chapter, titled Silver Lining, launches in December. All three parts add new story missions, challenges, enemies, and suits to the game. You can purchase each one individually for $ 10, or buy The City That Never Sleeps collection for $ 25.
