This latest update finally fixes the critical issue of “not enough puddles”.
Just a few days before the release of its first paid DLC, Insomniac’s Spider-Man for the PS4 has received a new update. Along with bringing the much-awaited New Game Plus mode, this update adds tons of functionality to Photo Mode. New stickers, a shortcut to Photo Mode on the D-pad, new frames, and rotation for stickers is also included.
Most importantly, however, UI and user experience lead Gil Doron revealed a critical “fix” with this update: Puddles. That’s right – you can finally address one of the sillier criticisms that Spider-Man garnered before launch, by adding puddles to images. Considering the controversy that was generated, it’s pretty cool to see Insomniac make a cheeky comeback to the same.
Spider-Man’s first DLC, The Heist, which is part 1 of The City That Never Sleeps, will be going live on October 23rd. Along with a new faction, three new suits, and new crimes, the DLC will add new story missions as well. Essentially, Spider-Man will pursue Felicia Hardy aka Black Cat, who’s leaving little clues around Manhattan for some mysterious purpose. Stay tuned for more information.
We have a new patch today! Not only do we have NG+, but we added a bunch of stuff in Photo Mode, including:
rotation for stickers
shortcut to Photo Mode with the D-Pad…
