Beenox and Activision have announced that an Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game is set to launch next Spring alongside the movie of the same name.
The game is scheduled to release on Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U, Xbox One, PS4 and 3DS.
The game will feature a story inspired by the film, but one set within its own continuity. Presumably so Beenox can include more villains than the film.
“The first The Amazing Spider-Man game gave players their own beautifully animated, free-roaming city of Manhattan to traverse and explore – a playground of majestic scale in which to live out our common hero fantasies”, said Thomas Wilson, Co-Studio Head of Beenox. “And the overwhelming message from fans was: ‘MORE!’
Amazing Spider-Man 2 will include features such as the ‘Hero or Menace’ system, which encourages heroics antics and punishes those that ignore crimes.
Spider-Man has always been one of the most consistent gaming heroes, with his games offering a unique form of free-roam to other titles like Grand Theft Auto. Hopefully Amazing Spider-Man 2 will build on what’s come before and finally deliver Spidey’s equivalent of Arkham Aslyum.
A man can dream.
