The Heist is the first of three interconnected add-on chapters, collectively called The City That Never Sleeps, and it’s bringing new story missions, new enemies, new crimes, and more. The story focuses on Felicia Hardy, aka Black Cat, who crosses paths with Spider-Man and Mary Jane after a robbery at an art museum.
Of course, there’s also new Spidey suits. The Resilient Suit is a new design created by famed Marvel illustrator Gabriele Dell’Otto, Insomniac said. “We loved bringing original suits to the game, starting with our Advanced Suit, and continuing with Adi Granov’s Velocity Suit, and this is another great one,” said Insomniac Games director Ryan Smith. The other two suits are ones fans will recognize — Spider-Man’s suit from Scarlet Spider II and the Spider-UK suit from the Spider-Verse.
The Heist is available as a standalone purchase on the PlayStation Store for $10 USD. The City That Never Sleeps DLC series is available for $25 USD and includes The Heist and two additional chapters releasing later this year.
“Marvel’s Spider-Man” launched on Sept. 7 exclusively on PlayStation 4 and it’s “in some ways one of the finest open-world action games ever made, despite how often things proceeded in obvious, predictable ways,” according to Variety’s review. It’s now the fastest-selling first-party title on that platform after selling an estimated 3.3 million copies in its first three days. Previously, Sony Santa Monica’s 2018 “God of War” reboot held that title, after selling more than 3.1 million copies in the first three days.
