List of Costumes Available in Insomniac Games’ “Spider-Man” on PS4

Released exclusively for the Sony PlayStation 4 this past September, the Spider-Man videogame developed by Insomniac Games and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment was considered something of a triumphant return for the game format pioneered on the original PlayStation from Activision, with an added open-world sandbox element from later iterations.

Featuring an adult veteran iteration of Peter Parker as the web-swinging hero/menace of New York, the game features a gripping storyline that involves Spider-Man’s cast of supporting characters and villains all over a massive cityscape with plenty of ground and rooftops to cover, people to see and things to do.

And to do all that crime-fighting necessary, Spidey’s going to need some heavy equipment, in the form of his massive costume wardrobe. Some are just for cool points, others have neat gimmicks, but all will find some use with Spider-Man on his greatest challenge yet. Here’s his bug costume list:

GAME-ORIGINAL

  1. Advanced – default costume as seen in game trailers
  2. Velocity – increases speed
  3. Vintage – a tribute to his classic coloring scheme, with cel-shading to contrast with the realistic environment
  4. Underoos – Spider-Man in hood and Spidey-trunks only
  5. Anti-Ock – used against the climactic game boss, no points for guessing who
  6. Battle-Damaged – a torn-up version of the Classic suit
  7. Empire State University Shirt – Peter’s civilian clothes with only his mask as an actual costume
