The initial set of post-launch DLC for Spider-Man 2 has been unveiled, and curiously enough, it features collaborations with a streetwear brand, a pop star, a football player, and a racecar driver.
Two years after its initial unveiling at the 2021 PlayStation Showcase, we are now less than a week away from the highly anticipated release of Spider-Man 2. While most fans are likely focused on the upcoming base game and not thinking too far ahead beyond October 20, it appears that Insomniac Games has already formulated plans for post-launch DLC content.
On Twitter, KidSuper, a streetwear brand located in Brooklyn and led by Colm Dillane, announced that they will be collaborating on a "custom-designed Spidey Suit" to be included in Spider-Man 2 after its release. Insomniac Games' official Twitter account retweeted KidSuper's tweet, confirming the authenticity of the crossover collaboration.
While it may appear to be a surprise announcement, this collaboration is only the beginning of Insomniac's extensive post-launch plans for Spider-Man 2. KidSuper's tweet further disclosed that additional Spidey suits will be introduced through collaborations with popstar Rina Sawayama, McLaren racecar driver Lando Norris, and Real Madrid Winger Vinicius Junior.
Currently, there is limited information available regarding the collaborations with the other mentioned individuals. However, a video attached to the tweet provides some insights into KidSuper's contributions to Spider-Man 2. Notably, the new suits will be accessible for both Peter and Miles to wear. Dillane mentions his involvement in designing the suits alongside the other collaborators, implying that each contributor will bring their own distinct suit designs to the game.
At present, it has not been officially confirmed whether the post-launch suits will be added to the game free of charge. However, it is probable considering Insomniac Games' previous approach with the first Spider-Man game, where they provided movie suits like the Raimi Suit and various Tom Holland outfits as free post-launch additions.
While this crossover may appear unexpected for Insomniac, it is not the first time they have ventured into such collaborations for Spider-Man suits. In the first Spider-Man game, they introduced the Velocity Suit, an original design crafted by comic book artist and film character designer Adi Granov. Additionally, the game featured other original designs such as the aptly named Aaron Aikman Suit.
