The Amazing Spider-Man is an upcoming action game for consoles developed by Beenox and published by Activision. This title takes place soon after the events in the 2012 Spiderman movie of the same name, and is said to feature villains like Black Cat, Rhino, and Iguana.
The game offers open-world roaming with plenty of side missions and challenges to discover and complete. A new game mechanic called Web Rush allows you to switch to first-person mode temporarily, and watch Spidey unleash some epic parkour moves. The combat system seems to be influenced by Batman: Arkham City, which should be an improvement over the one Beenox used in Shattered Dimensions and Edge of Time.
While The Amazing Spider-Man will be available on several game systems including handhelds, the following bonuses are only for people who pre-order the Xbox 360 or PS3 version:
- Amazon: exclusive Stan Lee Adventure Pack, voiced by The Man himself. Use Spider-Man’s abilities and collect pages of Stan’s latest script that were scattered around Manhattan.
- GameStop: exclusive Rhino Challenge which allows you to rampage around Manhattan and destroy everything in sight as the unstoppable genetically engineered villain.
We’ll update this list if more bonuses are announced.
The second official trailer features some slick moves and a dusbstep soundtrack.
You can start playing as your favorite comic book hero on June 26, 2012. More information can be found on the regularly updated The Amazing Spider-Man game page on Facebook.
