While Marvel’s Spider-Man has garnered critical acclaim from all over the gaming world, us players are never happy. We’re hard to please, us gaming folk, so naturally the questions about new locations and content are already being asked, despite the game not even being available for the masses just yet.
However, it has now been confirmed that the upcoming DLCs for Marvel’s Spider-Man, starting with The City That Never Sleeps DLC – will not add any new locations to the open world.
Insomniac Community Director, James Stevenson, recently spoke with FANDOM and confirmed as much.
“Those things you can see off the Manhattan Island – like the Statue of Liberty and the rafts moving about the harbour – are not fully built out. So they can’t be used in future DLC. They are there because it wouldn’t feel like New York without them. He can’t really get there anyway: there’s no buildings to attach your webs to [for swinging] and Spider-Man doesn’t like to swim very much.
“It was definitely something we thought about because we didn’t want a situation like Grand Theft Auto where it tells you the bridge is out as that is weird. It’s more that Spider-Man doesn’t want to ditch his responsibilities in Manhattan. So all the future content for the game, which has been announced, will be set within the Manhattan Island.”
Marvel’s Spider-Man is set to release exclusively on PlayStation 4 this September 7th. You can pre-order your copy from the PlayStation Store, or go for the traditional boxed copy via Amazon.
