PS4 exclusive Marvel’s Spider-Man gets two new free costumes
Two Fantastic Four Spidey suits have been added to the hit 2018 game in a free update
As part of patch 1.14 for the PlayStation 4 exclusive Marvel’s Spider-Man, two new free costumes have been added to the game.
The costumes are in celebration of the tease that Marvel will begin integrating Fantastic Four content into their games and movie universe once again, according to a PlayStation Blog post by one of the game’s writers Christos Gage.
“I was so excited by Marvel’s tease on January the 8th that the fabulous Fantastic Four are back in the spotlight – and back in Marvel Games,” Gage wrote.
Gage went on to explain the two costumes in the update, including one that is a bit silly.
“There have been too many cool Spidey/Fantastic Four moments to count, but one of the most memorable in their illustrious history was in Amazing Spider-Man #258, when Spidey swung by the Fantastic Four’s headquarters for help with the alien symbiote he was wearing as a costume (that’s right, it later became Venom).
The Fantastic Four got it off, but then Spidey was left in his underpants (we’d never do something that silly in the game…wait, I’m being told we did). So Spidey borrowed a Fantastic Four costume…but they don’t have masks! So, to conceal Peter Parker’s secret identity, his frenemy, the Human Torch, gave Spidey a grocery bag to wear on his head. As The Thing might say, what a revoltin’ development!”
The other costume is much less silly, and actually looks pretty awesome.
“Another chapter in their shared story came when Spidey actually joined the Fantastic Four, then calling themselves the Future Foundation, and they all wore cool black and white costumes.”
The Bombastic Bag-Man and the Future Foundation suits are available now. Just download the latest update to get them. Excelsior!
