Activision and Marvel's latest Spider-Man video game brings free-roaming web-slinging back to New York City plus official launch trailer released



The Amazing Spider-Man video game serves as an epilogue story to this summer's upcoming blockbuster feature film, heralding Spidey's return to a free-roaming Manhattan as players take the role of a young Peter Parker discovering his newfound powers and Super Hero responsibilities. The Amazing Spider-Man video game is available on the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system, the Wii system from Nintendo, Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DS™ handheld systems.

"Dee Brown and his team at Beenox have completely revamped The Amazing Spider-Man's proprietary game engine to deliver a fresh, innovative gameplay experience for the fans," said David Oxford, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Activision Publishing, Inc. "With the adrenaline rush from just swinging through the city and the new zoomed-in camera angle opening up a whole new perspective in realistic detail, The Amazing Spider-Man allows gamers to BE Spider-Man like never before."


Go beyond Sony Picture Entertainment's Columbia Pictures' feature film and find out what happens next in The Amazing Spider-Man video game. Set against an original story crafted by Hollywood writer Seamus Kevin Fahey (Spartacus: Vengeance, Spartacus: Gods of the Arena, Battlestar Galactica) that picks up immediately after the events of the movie, The Amazing Spider-Man video game delivers a brand-new, immersive and cinematic adventure allowing fans to truly harness the power of your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. Players will experience numerous choices in navigation and combat with the debut of the innovative Web Rush gameplay mechanic, pushing Spider-Man's abilities to the limit against classic Marvel villains that are re-imagined exclusively for the game, such as Scorpion, Felicia Hardy, Rhino, Iguana and more.

"The Amazing Spider-Man video game is the ultimate fan tribute to Spider-Man and Manhattan," said Andreea Enache-Thune, SVP, Games & Digital Distribution, Marvel Entertainment. "We're thrilled with all of the content and collectibles Activision and Beenox have packed into the game's free-roaming Manhattan setting, and we can't wait for fans to web-swing around the city and start saving the world."


The Amazing Spider-Man video game also features fan-favorite talent, including Evil Dead and Burn Notice's Bruce Campbell taking the role of an "extreme action" reporter who provides death-defying challenges that only Spider-Man can accomplish. And for fans that pre-ordered the game from Amazon, Stan Lee himself is available as a playable character for the first time ever.
