The game will also feature color variants for most unlockable suits and physics for capes (wingsuits), according to Bryan Intihar and James Stevenson from Insomniac Games.
On online communities and in social media, people have a lot to say about these suits. Some are worried about the cost of the Deluxe Edition, which comes with 10 suits and 2 skill points. There’s debate over whether the extra $10 for these additions is worth it, and some folks are questioning the base price of AAA games in general.When it comes to the suits themselves, opinions are all over the place. Some people really like the “Stone Monkey“, “Tokusatsu“, and “Apunkalyptic” suits, but others are not fans, describing them as unattractive and low quality.Some are upset about having to pay extra for certain suits, while others point out that the game isn’t free to begin with, so technically, all suits cost money.All-in-all, people have mixed feelings about the new suits and the game’s pricing. A number of people are hoping that the game will include popular suits from the comics and movies that players can unlock, instead of just including them in the Deluxe Edition.But, the consensus seems to be that it’s best to wait and see how these suits look in the actual game before making a final judgement.The game is set to release on PlayStation 5 on October 20th, 2023, with pre-orders starting from June 16th, 2023.
