The Amazing Spider-Man Announced

7 December, 2011 - 10:16 pm by

Activision have today announced that they will be announcing The Amazing Spider-Man during Saturday’s Video Game Awards. From what we hear, the game will be based on the 2012 movie of the same name and be set around the Manhattan area of New York. The Spidy game will be based on the events after the film and will be penned by Seamus Kevin Fahey of Battlestar Galactica and Sparticus: God’s Of The Arena fame.

The only details Activision are letting on is that The Amazing Spider-Man will be a free roaming action/adventure title and will make use of “Web Rush” Mechanics meaning Peter Parker will be able to perform moves never seen in any of the previous titles. No console has been announced but as it is a Movie-Game tie in, our money would be on all of the major platforms and could possibly see a WiiU release.

More information when it breaks.
