The latest Spider-Man video game was announced at the New York Comic-Con today. The Amazing Spider-Man, based on the 2012 movie, is an open-world web-slinger in development at Beenox.
Speaking at the convention, Activision producer Doug Hede admitted Beenox’s track record has been mixed, with Spider-Man: Edge of Time receiving a 60 average on Metacritic. Due to The Amazing Spider-Man‘s lengthy development time, he promises its turnout will be a different one.
According to Beenox creative director Gerard Lehiany, the game’s been in development for over a year. Beenox has two teams–while one was working on Edge of Time, the other was working on today’s announcement.
The game is planned for a summer 2012 release, most likely near the movie’s June 3 release date. It will continue the story of the film.
The trailer shows a more realistic Spider-Man swinging freely through New York City. It earned high-praise by fans at the show. Watch it here (off-screen, for now).
