How to Access Spider-Man DLC Items

Before you do either of those things, you may be curious in knowing how to get at the DLC items you get for preordering the game. Below I will walk you through how to access Spider-Man DLC items.

The newest Marvel title, Spider-Man, is finally out and that means it is time to start swinging around tall buildings and beating up baddies. Before you do either of those things, you may be curious in knowing how to get at the DLC items you get for preordering the game. Below I will walk you through how to access Spider-Man DLC items.

Note: Before you can access any of the preorder items in Spider-Man, you must first playthrough the Fisk Tower tutorial mission (The Main Event). After you complete the tutorial mission you will need to complete the My OTHER Other Job mission. After that mission is complete, complete the Keeping the Peace mission for Capt. Watanabe. The final mission you need to complete is called Something Old, Something New. Once all four missions are complete you will gain access to your DLC items (Suits).

Where are the Spidey Suit Pack DLC Items?

Both the Deluxe and Standard editions of Spider-Man feature the Spidey Suit Pack as a preorder bonus. Inside the Spidey Suit Pack is a collection of three new outfits for Spider-Man. These outfits look awesome and also provide extra bonuses for wearing them. Inside the Spidey Suit pack you get the following outfits:

  • Velocity Suit: This suit unlocks Blitz (Suit Power) which allows for faster sprinting and better enemy knock downs.
  • Spider-Punk: This suit unlocks Rock Out (Suit Power) which blasts enemies with waves of sound.
  • Iron Spider Suit: This suit unlocks Iron Arms (Suit Power) which causes Spider-man to have four articulated arms.

To access your new Spider-Man suits, your need to complete the mission up to Something Old, Something New. Once you’ve done this, a new tab appears in the menu which allows you to select suits on the fly. To change into your suits, navigate to the Suits tab and select whichever suit you wish to wear.

    Help all! I preordered the deluxe Spiderman ps4 game from for my sons birthday next week. The game arrived fine but today I got an email advising speedygifts supplier cannot provide DLC codes. Knowing nothing about gaming, is the game now unuseable? Should I return it and buy it somewhere else? Will my son be disappointed if there’s no code? Please help – any advice welcomed!

      Game will work but it wont have any added content and considering you sent as posted on the psn is 99.99 I would totally get for your money back and just buy the digital deluxe online.

    I pre-ordered the Deluxe Version and just 100% the game but I still don’t have access to the bonus missions that come with it. Anyone have any ideas?

    • Terence says:

      The bonus game isn’t out yet, there will be 3 bonus games, one comes out in 23rd October and the other one Novemeber and the last one December. (Date of nov and dec aren’t released yet) When the bonus game is released you can see it on the main menu

    I bought the digital deluxe version of the game at GameStop and there were two different codes Ihad to input. One was for the game itself. One was for the extra bonus preorder content and I realized that only after I had played through the game and inuouted the bonus content code while in the middle of the game. I haven’t played since but next time I start up the game I’ll check to see if my content was added. As of now the preorder avatar for the ps profile worked so the rest should have worked as well. I’ll try and keep things updated.

    When you originally pre-ordered the game (from wherever) that promised you the DLC, you would have received a code. — if you ordered online, then you probably got an email in the last day or so, just before release. (If you didnt, check your junk or spam folders) — Regardless how you got it, you need that DLC code.
    Input that code in the Playstation store “Redeem Codes” section (either on your PS4 or on the website). This will download the DLC items and unlock the items in the game.
