Insomniac Games and Sony have rolled out a trailer for Spider-Man's second episode of The City That Never Sleeps DLC dubbed Turf Wars and the trailer stars Hammerhead, Spidey's new adversary who is quite fond of headbutting people.

In case you're not familiar with Hammerhead, he's a member of the Maggia family whose skull has been replaced with a titanium one after a severe beating he'd taken left him for dead. This explains the man's affinity for headbutts as well as the delicately carved, ahem, topography of his face.

In the trailer, Hammerhead suggests that the good old days are coming back to New York, referring to 1920s, the time he's very fond of and obviously still stuck in. Naturally, Spider-Man's job, other than trying to not get headbutted, will be to make sure Hammerhead doesn't get what he wants, which is the theme of Turf Wars.

Just like The Heist, Turf Wars brings new story missions, bases, challenges, trophies and, of course, new suits, which you've already seen on the cover photo. You're looking at the Spider-Armor MK-I, Marvel Mangaverse Spider-Clan and Iron Spider Armor suits.

This second episode in The City That Never Sleeps DLC goes for $9.99, unless of course, you've got the season pass, in which case you'll be getting it for free. As the game revealed earlier, the episode launches on 20 November 2018, so a week from now.

This leaves one more DLC episode left, which is The Silver Lining. Insomniac Games are planning to launch it in December, although we're not sure of the exact date at the moment. As the name suggests, it should serve as a conclusion to Spider-Man's The City That Never Sleeps DLC.

Even though Spidey was always expected to do well, it significantly overshot the expectations of some of the most enthusiastic of fans. Sony even listed the game as one of the main drivers of profit in the second quarter of FY 2019, where its launch month performance outdid all the previous Spider-Man games combined.
