Insomniac Games has polished off two new updates for epic wall-crawler Spider-Man, including the much-requested New Game Plus option.

As is the case with pretty much every other game out there, New Game Plus lets you start up a new adventure with all your hard-earned gear. So, in Spidey's case, you'll have access to all your suits, skills, gadgets, and benchmarks to play around with.

If you're looking for a new challenge, then you can now tackle the Ultimate difficulty setting. This will lower the web-slinging superhero's health while buffing the attack power and health of his enemies, so don't be surprised if you take a bit of a battering. 

Meanwhile, completionists will be able to hoover up two additional PlayStation Trophies, while Photo Mode has been tweaked making it easier and faster to take pictures. 

Read the full patch notes on Spider-Man update 1.07 and 1.08 here.

Spider-Man's first slice of DLC will launch tomorrow in the shape of The Heist, which makes up the multi-part The City That Never Sleeps expansion. Be sure to have a gander at our Spider-Man review if you're on the fence about picking it up.
