New Game Plus modes typically provide extra challenges to give games added replayability. God of War’s recent New Game Plus update, for instance, made end-game weapons available from the start, but enemies more challenging to deal with from the get-go. We don’t yet know exactly what Insomniac has in store for Spider-Man’s new game update, but it’s likely to be along these lines. One thing is certain: if you found your first playthrough to be a walk in the park(er), the New Game Plus mode will provide something different for your second playthrough.
This latest announcement comes in the wake of recent news that Spider-Man is the fastest-selling game of the year so far in the UK. With the New Game Plus mode on its way, it seems Spider-Man is set to stay in the limelight for some time to come.
