Spider-Man: Edge of Time Announced by Activision
We’ve started hearing rumors that a new Spider-Man game would be set for release this Fall. Who knew Activision would let the spider out of its web today, by giving us some more of the old friendly neighborhood Spidy to clammier over. Marvel and Activision have announced details on Spider-Man: Edge of Time. Spider-Man will be facing one of his greatest challenges – saving Spider-Man. The game is being developed by Activision-owned studio Beenox and the game will challenge players to take on the roles of both classic Amazing Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2099 to correct a timestream gone awry and prevent a catastrophic future brought on by the early and untimely death of Peter Parker.
“The first Spider-Man entry by Beenox, Spider-Man™: Shattered Dimensions was touted as one of the wall-crawler’s best Spider-Man games to date from both critics and fans,” said Vicharin Vadakan, Director, Global Brand Management. “Beenox is once again taking a fresh and different approach to bring a fast-paced and high-octane adventure and unexpected story to life in Spider-Man: Edge of Time.”
“At Beenox, we are constantly listening to the fans and looking for new and creative ways to innovate the gameplay experience for them,” said Dee Brown, Studio Head, Beenox. “We want to create a totally distinct experience in Spider-Man: Edge of Time by working with Peter David on the story and creating this urgent, high-stakes experience where time is working against you and the fate of Spider-Man hangs in the balance.”
The game will be an action-packed adventure set in two connected and evolving timelines set against the backdrop of a tightly crafted narrative by acclaimed Marvel veteran Peter David (co-creator of Spider-Man 2099). The game also features an all-new “cause-and-effect” gameplay where players will see how immediate and sometimes unexpected effects of their actions as one Spider-Man changes the timeline of the other Spider-Man.
There will be a panel at WonderCon in San Francisco on Saturday, April 2 at 4:30 p.m. in room 103.
