As of writing this, the first piece of story DLC content is now available for the PS4’s Spider-Man. This newest content pack is dubbed The Heist and it is the first Episode in Marvel’s Spider-Man: The City That Never Sleeps expansion. So how do you go about accessing the new storyline DLC? Let me show you. Below you will learn how to access The Heist DLC in Spider-Man.

Buy The Heist DLC

Spider-Man The City That Never Sleeps

The DLC Pack for Spider-Man is called The City That Never Sleeps.

Spider-Man on the PS4 features a three episode DLC pack called The City that Never Sleeps. Unfortunately for us, the Spider-Man DLC isn’t free, so you will need to purchase it from a retailer. I purchased the Deluxe Edition off of the PlayStation Store (which comes with the Season Pass), but you can opt to buy episodes individually ($9.99 USD) or the Season Pass ($24.99 USD). Once you have the DLC purchased, it’s on to step 2.

 Make Sure your Game is Updated to 1.07/1.08

Check for update on PS4

On the homescreen of your PS4, highlight Spider-Man and press the Options button on your control. From here you can check for a game update.

If you’ve left your Spider-Man unupdated you are going to need to rectify that. The patch associated with the new The Heist DLC is 1.07/1.08, so you will need to make sure your game is running on this update. If your game isn’t, you can force an update check on the PS4 home screen by highlighting Spider-Man and pressing the Options button on your control. This will open up a menu on the right hand side with a Check for Update option. Once the game is up-to-date, start it.

Note: If you purchased a physical 12 digit code for the DLC, check out this post on how to redeem the code on your PS4.

Step 3: Navigate to the DLC Tab in Game

With Spider-Man running, open the game menu and navigate to the DLC tab. On the DLC screen you will see The Heist is now Available. Select The Heist to be taken to the PlayStation Store. From here you can download your DLC. The Heist Download comes in at 2.2 GB. Once it is downloaded you will be able to access the DLC content in game (I’ll show you how below).

Step 4: How to Start The Heist Content in Game

Once you have The Heist DLC installed, you need to switch to it from the DLC menu.

Now that we have The Heist downloaded, it is time to actually dive into the new Spider-Man content. Thankfully for us, this part of the process is fairly straightforward. Once you have The Heist DLC installed, make your way back to the DLC tab and select The Heist. This will prompt you to switch campaigns. Select continue to start The Heist. That’s all there is to it!

    This advice worked well thanks.

    In order to Access the content I had to leave game and on PlayStation home press options (for game) then close application.

    One restarted the content was accessable.

      IT SAYS “THE CONTENT CANNOT BE SELECTED AT THIS TIME” i don’t understand why doesn’t it allow me to download the DLC as my MARVEL’S SPIDER-MAN is already updated to version 1.08!
