Beenox and Activision have today unleashed a new trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2: The Video Game, featuring plenty of in-game web-slinging, combat, and a voice over from lesser known Spidey comic book character, Kraven the Hunter.
Why is Kraven featured here when he isn’t in the upcoming film? The answer is simple: like the first Amazing Spider-Man game, this is only based on the movie of the same name, rather than a retelling of the events in video game form. In fact, The Amazing Spider-Man 2: The Video Game could be a very different story, as it builds on the storyline of the first outing, which was set after the events of the first Amazing Spider-Man movie and took it’s own twists on the plots and characters.
See the new trailer below:
The Amazing Spider-Man 2: The Video Game is set to expand the New York offered in the first game and provide players with more abilities, challenges, upgrades, and freedom to progress.
Kraven is best known for a run in the Spidey comics during the 80’s, where he hunted, tracked, and killed Spider-Man before donning the suit himself to prove he was superior.
The official blurb on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game reads:
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.
As Spidey, players will be able to free-roam through a greatly-enhanced Manhattan cityscape, one set to offer livelier, more engaging opportunities with which to put his sensational skills to use. Central to the expansive depth and detail being poured into 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. Spider-Man’s personal brand of web-swinging and up-close-and-personal combat will see a variety of new features as well.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game is set to release alongside the film this summer across previous and current gen consoles.
