Spider-Man, Spider-Man, friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. At one time or another you were a great source of entertainment for the public. At your most successful you shined at the box office, and at your worst moments you…also shined at the box office. With Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, a rejuvenation was in place hoping to kick start the part of everyone’s heart that holds a special place for the wall-crawling hero. Now, straight from New York Comic-Con comes the reveal of a unique set of “cosmic” skins that will give each of the four Spideys a different look.
Available before the end of this month, these four new costumes will add a change of pace to the regular single player experience. Though each of them is of a pretty similar design as compared to the next, who doesn’t enjoy a little eye candy from time to time? Maybe you weren’t a fan of one of the Universes and would rather change up Spider-Man's costume. Well, Beenox have got you covered.
You already know how we feel about Shattered Dimensions based on our review, so it should be safe to assume we welcome this nifty piece of DLC. Initially planned as a pre-order bonus, these skins will now be available to all for what we hope is a reasonable (free) price. Sure, they have an appealing look, but there are certainly other alternate costumes available that look just as cool, if not cooler.
Post release of the game we received a comprehensive behind the scenes look at the making of Shattered Dimensions that showed just how committed developer Beenox was to the concept. The fact that they are still providing content for a game that exists as only a single player experience shows that not only was this a passion project, but that Beenox is a developer to look out for in the future.
What do you think of the “cosmic” suits for Shattered Dimensions? Are you feeling a bit overwhelmed by all of the alternate costume choices?
Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions is available now for Xbox 360, PS3, PC, Wii, and DS.
