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.
i still have about 80% of 2017's releases to buy/play. not buying new games has saves me so much money. (9 minutes ago)
I'm sure there will be releases this year that I'm still unaware of too. The next release for me: Celeste. (1 Hour ago)
Still finding plenty of stuff that I do want to play. Even AAA stuff sometimes :) (1 Hour ago)
I'm probably anticipating one of those games but that's just because AAA is mostly garbage. (1 Hour ago)
the most in the early 90's, before i bought a playstation and stopped playing computer games. Also enjoy playing games from my childhood. (1 Hour ago)
I gradually got a bit indifferent to the games being released over the last 10 years. I found joy in gaming again when i went back to playing flight simulators the last year, which was what i played (1 Hour ago)
