Marvel’s Spider-Man: The Heist DLC launches today

First chapter of The City Never Sleeps brings Black Cat and more J.Jonah Jameson to New York

Hi everyone, it’s been an unforgettable few weeks for all of us at Insomniac Games. Thank you again for the tremendous support for Marvel’s Spider-Man since we launched last month.

The response to the game has been absolutely amazing, and it’s humbling to see the emotional reactions people have shared. I’m also psyched that a ton of people have been earning the Platinum trophy and are now are jumping in to New Game +!

To add to the ongoing excitement, today we launched our first chapter of DLC in Marvel’s Spider-Man: The City That Never Sleeps – Marvel’s Spider-Man: The Heist.

This chapter includes new missions, enemies, suits, and, of course, a new story starring none other than Black Cat herself.

While investigating the robbery of a New York art museum, Spider-Man and Mary Jane Watson find themselves closing in on criminal super villain Felicia Hardy, aka Black Cat. The chase will take Spidey and MJ deep into Manhattan’s shadowy world of crime families.

New Spider-Man suits

Players will be able to unlock three new suits, including a new, original Resilient Suit designed exclusively for Marvel’s Spider-Man by famed Marvel illustrator Gabriele Dell’Otto. You’ll also be able to discover new collectibles and earn Trophies from challenges.

One of my favourite parts of the game is J Jonah Jameson’s “Just the Facts” in-game podcast. I crack a smile every time one of his episodes comes on while I’m swinging through the city – for some reason I never get tired of his ranting.

JJJ is back at it again in Marvel’s Spider-Man: The Heist, and we’ve got a new video that captures what’s happening in the city during Spider-Man’s search for the feline felon. Check it out!

You can buy Marvel’s Spider-Man: The Heist on its own, or you can buy all three Marvel’s Spider-Man: The City That Never Sleeps either at your local retailer or on PlayStation Store. You can purchase the whole bundle to get the best deal, which is available for pre-order now*!

And for those of you who haven’t played the main game yet, you might consider the Digital Deluxe Edition of Marvel’s Spider-Man, which includes all three Marvel’s Spider-Man: The City That Never Sleeps chapters* along with all the cool content that comes with it.

Before I wrap it up here, I wanted to remind people to be on the lookout for more info on the next chapter in Marvel’s Spider-Man: The City That Never Sleeps – Marvel’s Spider-Man: Turf Wars. You’re going to see explosive action and some powerful scenes unfold. Can’t wait to show you more!

*Users will receive all three Marvel’s Spider-Man: The City That Never Sleeps chapters by March 2019.

Catwoman. But does it matter? Let’s just enjoy them both. :D

yeah but that makes this one a copy cat ;)

Like so many games, I buy it, play it loads, complete campaign, get platinum and stop playing, then the dlc comes out and I get my ass kicked for the first few missions because I cant remember how to play it and keep pressing the wrong buttons lol

Are JJJ, Black Cat and Harry actually going to appear IN the game now? I love the game a lot but I think it’s really cheap that these characters were just reduced to voiceovers.

I haven’t had time to finish the DLC yet but of course Black Cat is IN the game now you can tell that just from the vids and pics. Harry made a sort of appearance in the main game but likely set up for the sequel. As for JJJ? I don’t know. But he certainly feels like hes’ there in some capacity with all those broadcasts. :P

I have to admit the dlc was very disappointing. I was hoping to get to play as black cat

Pfff… So much for 100% on the trophies, Friendly is already hard enough.
