Marvel Entertainment, LLC announce The Amazing Spider-Man video game, planned to launch summer 2012 tied to Sony Picture Entertainmentâ€™s upcoming feature film of the same name.
Created as an epilogue story occurring entirely after the events of the movie, the game features the return of free-roaming web-slinging all over the city and evolutionary improvements to navigation and combat, as the newly anointed Spider-Man is plunged into an all-new storyline charged with protecting Manhattan from a variety of criminals.
The Amazing Spider-Man is in development at veteran game studio Beenox, and features an original narrative crafted by Hollywood writer Seamus Kevin Fahey ( episodes of Spartacus: Gods of the Arena and the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica) that continues young Peter Parkerâ€™s adventures following the events of the new film. Using the gameâ€™s new Web Rush mechanic allows players to pull off a vast array of moves never before possible.
With a story that takes players through many areas all over (and under) Manhattan, fans will feel what itâ€™s truly like to be a Super Hero, as they experience the cinematic adrenaline rush of web-swinging through the city and fighting crime using Spider-Manâ€™s spectacular acrobatic moves and attacks.
