Activision and Marvel Entertainment announced The Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game, which is in development at Beenox, the same studio behind 2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man.
The game is planned for a release alongside the Sony Pictures’ film of the same name. The all-new third-person action-adventure builds on the story of the previous game with an alternative take on the events of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 movie.
The game also gives players an enhanced, free-roaming web-slinging experience through a greatly expanded New York City.
“The first 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!’ That’s what our team is working toward with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 — we’re giving gamers more abilities, more upgrades, more challenges, and more freedom to progress.
And with the game launching alongside the new movie, offering an expanded interactive experience beyond the film, fans of the franchise won’t want to miss playing it.”
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is planned to launch alongside the feature film next spring for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, 3DS and PC.
