Activision Publishing and Marvel Entertainment have announced that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will launch next spring, alongside the Sony Pictures Entertainment feature film of the same name. 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. Central to 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.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game is planned to launch alongside the feature film next spring for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and Windows PC. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details about The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
