Update: As it turns out, PlayStation had good reason to remove the New Game Plus release date from The Heist expansion’s European blog post, which is that New Game Plus isn’t coming tomorrow. After the blog post was updated to remove the date with no explanation, many were left confused about what that meant for the update’s release. In a following Twitter post, Insomniac clarified that the feature and its accompanying Ultimate difficulty setting are simply “coming soon”, and that the blog post has been corrected and updated.
It has been corrected and updated.

The developer wouldn’t specify when we can now expect the update, nor has Insomniac or Sony responded to Kotaku’s request for comment.
Original Story: The first of Marvel’s Spider-Man‘s three announced expansions breaks out next week, and PlayStation has revealed three new suits included in the content.
The Heist is the first chapter of Spider-Man‘s The City That Never Sleeps DLC series, which starts with Spidey getting tangled up with thief and on-again-off-again romantic partner Black Cat. In addition to the expansion’s new story missions, new enemy faction, and other content, the expansion will unlock three new suits for our hero, namely the Resilient Suit, the Scarlet Spider II Suit, and the Spider-UK Suit. The first suit is an original design by a Marvel artist, while the second two are straight out of the comics, and all three can be checked out below.
Spider-Man‘s The Heist expansion launches on October 23rd. The expansion can be purchased standalone for $9.99, as part of the game’s The City That Never Sleeps series for $24.99, or—for anyone that has yet to jump on the Spider-Man bandwagon—as part of the game’s Digital Deluxe Edition for $79.99. The next two chapters, Turf Wars and Silver Lining, are slated to launch sometime in November and December, respectively.
In other Spider-Man news, the game appears to be getting its New Game Plus mode as soon as tomorrow. According to the expansion’s U.K. blog post (via IGN), an update with NG+ and a new Ultimate difficulty setting will launch tomorrow, October 17th, but these details seem to have since been removed from the post.
