THE AMAZING SPIDER-MANTM RETURNS TO NEW YORK CITY

Swing Through and Explore Manhattan in the Next Web Slingin’ Spider-ManTM Video Game from Activision® and Marvel


London, UK – 7th December, 2011 – An all-new Spider-Man is poised to bring the action back to New York City as Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI), and Marvel Entertainment, LLC announce The Amazing Spider-Man™ video game, planned to launch summer 2012 tied to Sony Picture Entertainment’s upcoming feature film of the same name. Created as an epilogue story occurring entirely after the events of the movie, the game features the return of free-roaming web-slinging all over the city and evolutionary improvements to navigation and combat, as the newly anointed Spider-Man is plunged into an all-new storyline charged with protecting Manhattan from a variety of criminals.

The Amazing Spider-Man is in development at veteran game studio Beenox, and features an original narrative crafted by Hollywood writer Seamus Kevin Fahey ( episodes of Spartacus: Gods of the Arena and the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica) that continues young Peter Parker’s adventures following the events of the new film. Using the game’s new Web Rush mechanic allows players to pull off a vast array of moves never before possible. With a story that takes players through many areas all over (and under) Manhattan, fans will feel what it’s truly like to be a Super Hero, as they experience the cinematic adrenaline rush of web-swinging through the city and fighting crime using Spider-Man’s spectacular acrobatic moves and attacks.

Fans can check out the WORLD PREMIERE EXCLUSIVE TRAILER for The Amazing Spider-Man video game during Spike TV’s Video Game Awards, airing live on Saturday, December 10 at 8:00 PM ET / 5:00 PM PT.

Nice Artwork!

I hope they animate him well this time.
My gripes with the past Spiderman titles are the guy isn't acrobatic feeling enough. He should be about fluid movement and not feel so clunky.

Awesome artwork.

Ugh, why not get a proper comics writer like Darkness 2 (Paul Jenkins) or Batman Arkham City (Paul Dini) instead of a TV writer? Spiderman games have had awful writing, time to step it up.

And less celebrity voice acting.

Should get Rocksteady on the case of a Spiderman game once they're done with Batman. Reckon they'd do wonders with it!

I thought Rocksteady was owned by WB or something, so they can only do DC comics and not Marvel.

If they can do Marvel, they should do a proper Thor game.

About the game


What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite He's boring McGenericFace thing, with horns. And he wants to collect a couple of box things to...yep...take over the world. He's the destroyer of worlds, yadda yadda. Zzzzzzzz Oh, fuck off... (3 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Yeah, I'd say the most generic and boring villain I can recall. He's something that stepped out of a 90's cartoon or comic book TV series or something. Entirely all CGI too. (4 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @KORNdog: I can't even remember suicide squad, and I only watched it a few months ago. (5 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: more boring than whatever it was in suicide squad? i can't even remeber what that thing was called or what it looked like. lol (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Though JL was the biggest pile of wank. Any time Flash was on screen and opened his gob, I wanted to smack him. It also had probably the most boring villain in a comic book film ever. (2 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @KORNdog: I think they increased the prices with the launch of the X1x. (8 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog Even came with the codes to download all the gears games too. Bargain! (9 Hours ago)
