Coming to PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, PC, and 3DS.

Activision announced The Amazing Spider-Man 2 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, PC, and 3DS at Comic-Con in New York this weekend.

The Beenox-developed third-person action adventure game builds upon the story of the previous game and offers an alternative take on the events of the upcoming movie. Players will assume the role of Spider-Man, who will encounter a number of new enemies and old friends. Peter Parker, the man behind the superhero, will play a greater role as well, as players are tasked with using their journalistic skills to investigate the motivations and personalities of the villains threatening Manhattan.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will also have a new “Hero or Menace” system, providing players the ability to reward Spider-Man’s good doing, or add consequences to letting criminals run free. Spider-Man’s web swinging and combat will see upgrades, as well.

“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 Beenox co-studio boss Thomas Wilson. “And the overwhelming message from fans was: ‘MORE!’ That’s what our team is working toward with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – we’re giving gamers more abilities, more upgrades, more challenges, and more freedom to progress. And with the game launching alongside the new movie, offering an expanded interactive experience beyond the film, fans of the franchise won’t want to miss playing it.”

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will launch “alongside the feature film next spring.” Watch the debut trailer below. View a single screenshot at the gallery.

    I don’t even:

    – Activision announces full priced year and a half old Spiderman movie tie-in port for Vita.
    – Next day Activision announces the followup to said Spiderman movie tie-in game for everything but Vita.

      And Angry Birds Trilogy is just now coming to PS Vita this week (digital only) and likely full price too.

      I mean… wat.

      Then they’ll say they aren’t interested in making Vita games because their year and a half old downgraded port flopped. Just like how EA did the Wii U.

    Looks boring

      I wanna play as Peter Parker as well. On a skateboard. But I know they won’t do that

      It was nice in super hero games like Captain Rainbow, Rent-A-Hero #1 and Ultimate Spider-Man, to play as your alternate ego every once and while. Switch things up. Give a reason to put on the suit you know…

    I really liked the first game, just wish this one was coming to PS Vita as well. And not a year+ later port at full price.

  • SOLOmio

    No vita again?
    i really hope what i saw was the beta version!!!

  • Elvick

    Found this about the vita version on their twitter:

    “But as you may remember, we didn’t plan to release a Vita version of the first game either.”

    “We have to support other platforms (including new platforms) and don’t have the time or resources to do it properly.” (if this one on 3DS is anything like the demo of the first… they don’t really have the resources to do that properly either, but meh)

    Call me when they make a Superior Spider-Man game. High fives to those who get what I mean.
