Activision Announce Spider-Man Edge Of Time

by on March 31, 2011

Our friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man is not adversed to travelling through time and dimensions to save the world, but this time it looks like he’s going to need to save himself! Beenox, the team behind Spider-Man: Shattered Dimension is back again to give us their take on everyone’s favourite web slinger.

Spider-Man: Edge of Time will challenge the player to take on the roles of both classic Amazing Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2099 to correct a time stream gone awry and prevent a catastrophic future brought on by the early and untimely death of Peter Parker (No Spider-Man Noir or Ultimate Spider-Man this time guys, sorry!).

The game is set in two connected and evolving timelines, from the contemporary times of the Amazing Spider-Man to the corrupted future world of Spider-Man 2099, against the backdrop of a rich, tightly crafted narrative by acclaimed Marvel veteran Peter David (co-creator of the comic book series Spider-Man 2099).  The game features all-new “cause-and-effect” gameplay, where players will see how the immediate and sometimes unexpected effects of their actions as one Spider-Man changes the timeline of the other Spider-Man.

“At Beenox, we are constantly listening to the fans and looking for new and creative ways to innovate the gameplay experience for them,” said Dee Brown, Studio Head, Beenox.  “We want to create a totally distinct experience in Spider-Man: Edge of Time by working with Peter David on the story and creating this urgent, high-stakes experience where time is working against you and the fate of Spider-Man hangs in the balance.”

Spider-Man: Edge of Time is slated for release this fall.
