Yesterday we got the official cover art for the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game and now Kotaku has debuted the first trailer and screenshots which you can check out below! In addition, among the images in the gallery you'll find a fact sheet on a fan-favorite character confirmed to appear in the game, Kraven the Hunter!
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.
Developed by Beenox, the makers of the hit 2012 game The Amazing Spider-Man, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game is planned to launch alongside the feature film this spring for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, PC, and 3DS
