The Amazing Spider-Man 2 game announced for current, next-gen consoles

By
The Amazing Spider-Man 2's tie-in game for current and next-gen consoles has been announced by Activision.

It offers an alternative storyline set alongside the upcoming movie, with new foes, old friends and the return of a free-roaming New York City seen in the first game.



A new 'Hero or Menace' system incentivises crime-fighting skills in the world and issues consequences for letting criminal activity happen.

It is in development by Beenox, the studio behind the original Amazing Spider-Man, Edge of Time and Shattered Dimensions.

"The first The 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 co-studio head Thomas Wilson.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be available on Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One, PS4, Wii U and 3DS alongside the motion picture next Spring.
