Web heads, comic fans and all nerds alike are anxiously awaiting the release Sony Pictures and Marc Webb‘s Spider-Man reboot: The Amazing Spider-Man. Sure, kick-starting the SM franchise over again so soon after the trilogy Sam Raimi films is kind of a mind-fuck , but the talent involved in the reboot sure has folks excited. Honestly, how can a director with a last of “Webb” possibly disappoint? Anyway, the July release date is oh so far away. Until then, there’s going to be Activision‘s The Amazing Spider-Man video game to hold us over. A teaser has just been released and as far as teasers go, it looks pretty darn good.
Created as a tie-in to the feature length film, The Amazing Spider-Man will allow players to freely roam the landscape of New York City, from Manhattan straight into the depths of the city sewers . The game’s original story was written by TV writer Seamus Kevin Fahey, who has written episodes of Spartacus: Gods of the Arena and Battlestar Galactica. OK, maybe this will make up for the recent lack of quality Spider-man games
Check out the teaser trailer for yourself and let your spider-senses get all giddy with excitement.
Check out this official press release for the game:
An all-new Spider-Man is poised to bring the action back to New York City as Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI), and Marvel Entertainment, LLC announce The Amazing Spider-Man™ video game, planned to launch summer 2012 tied to Sony Picture Entertainment’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 Parker’s adventures following the events of the new film. Using the game’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 it’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-Man’s spectacular acrobatic moves and attacks.
