New Spider-Man Trailer Shows Off Heist DLC, Black Cat | Gaming News
With one week left until the commercial release of Spider-Man, Sony and Insomniac Games have already started teasing fans regarding the game’s first DLC. Not only did they give fans the release date for The Heist DLC, but the developer also included general release dates for the second and third DLC packs.
Earlier today Sony released a teaser trailer for Spider-Man: The Heist, the first DLC to be announced for “The City That Never Sleeps” post-release content. While announcing The Heist DLC, Insomniac Games also decided to give fans a sneak peek at Black Cat (Felicia Hardy).
The trailer is centered around an intense chase scene between her and Spider-Man. As short as it is, it concludes with the release date of The Heist, as well as the announcement and release dates of the second and third segments of “The City That Never Sleeps” DLC.
For those that may not have seen the schedule, Spider-Man has three DLC add-ons coming before the end of the year:
- Spider-Man: The Heist is set to release October 23rd, 2018,
- Spider-Man: Turf Wars is set for sometime in November 2018,
- Spider-Man: Silver Lining is aiming for December 2018.
As seen in the trailer (below), Insomniac Games elected to blur the promo pictures for Turf Wars and Silver Lining.
It is rumored that the chase depicted in the trailer could be reflecting actual gameplay, similar to the chase in Spider-Man 2. If that is the case then players can expect an intense cat and mouse chase, not only from the core game itself, but also from the DLC.
The announcement of Black Cat in The Heist is something Spider-Man fans should be excited about. This shows that Insomniac Games is not only willing to, but planning on implementing Marvel characters that fans adore into Spider-Man.
As seen in the trailer shown at Sony’s E3 2018 press conference, Insomniac is not afraid to load the game with big-name characters. Based on Insomniac’s track record with the game thus far it is safe to assume that with each new DLC pack, fans can expect new Marvel characters, maybe even some unexpected ones
Spider-Man releases September 7, 2018, exclusively for the PS4.
