Activision and Marvel Entertainment have just announced that "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" Video Game, will be launching alongside Sony Pictures Entertainment feature film of the same name early next year on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, WiiU, 3DS and PC.
Developed by Beenox, the same game studio behind 2012’s original hit The Amazing Spider-Man™, this all-new third-person action-adventure video game builds on the story of the previous game with an alternative take on the events of the upcoming movie, while also giving players an enhanced, free-roaming web-slinging experience through a greatly expanded New York City.
In The Amazing Spider-Man 2
, players once again assume the role of the iconic Super Hero in a unique side-story inspired by the feature film but set in its own continuity. Throughout his journey, Spider-Man will encounter a number of new foes as well as some old friends, as he confronts a new threat to his beloved city. The narrative will give Peter Parker, Spider-Man’s nerdy photojournalist persona, a greater role in the spotlight, as he investigates the complicated motivations and unique personalities behind the menagerie of Marvel menaces threatening Manhattan.
As Spidey, players will be able to free-roam through a greatly-enhanced Manhattan cityscape, one set to offer livelier, more engaging opportunities with which to put his sensational skills to use. Central to the expansive depth and detail being poured into The Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game is the new “Hero or Menace” system, which incentivizes Super Hero behavior by rewarding the web-slinger’s crime-fighting efforts, and adds consequences for letting criminality fester. Spider-Man’s personal brand of web-swinging and up-close-and-personal combat will see a variety of new features as well.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game is planned to launch alongside the feature film next spring for Xbox One
and Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, and Windows PC.
