New Features, Trophies Come to Spider-Man in Today’s Update

Less than a week before the release of the game’s first DLC, Insomniac Games adds NG+ and increased difficulty to the PS4 juggernaut.

A new update is now available for Marvel's Spider-Man, and with it come two features fans have been clamoring for: New Game+ and Ultimate difficulty.

With New Game+, master web-swingers and parkour aficionados (who have completed the game, of course) can start from the beginning with all the suits and skills they obtained the first time through.

Further, if these veterans are looking for a challenge, Ultimate difficulty promises a more punishing experience than the base game's hardest difficult setting. Hopefully, this increased difficulty will appease those that felt dissatisfied with the vanilla experience.

With these two new features come two new trophies: one for completing a New Game+ play-through and the other for completing the game on Ultimate difficulty.

Additionally, today's update adds functionality to the game's excellent Photo Mode.

As per the patch notes these features have been added:

  • The ability to rotate layers in Photo Mode
  • New frames and stickers to Photo Mode.
  • A shortcut option to trigger Photo Mode via the left directional button

Full patch notes, including some additional fixes and tweaks, are available in this reddit post.
