Originally serving as a GameStop-exclusive pre-order bonus, the costume pack includes four variations of Cosmic Spider-Man
-- one for each of the game's dimensions. Not only a costume, Cosmic Spidey also features a "signature charge attack."
The DLC is expected to be available to purchase from the Xbox Live Marketplace
today for 240 Microsoft Points ($3); though at the time of writing, the add-on was still unavailable. PS3 players can expect their new Spider-Duds next week.
