At last night’s VGAs, Activision debuted a brand new trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man video game, based on the upcoming 2012 movie which is a reboot of the movie franchise. The game is expected to see a summer 2012 launch alongside the upcoming movie, although it does take place after the events of the film. Gameplay will go back to the free-roaming, web-slinging style similar to previous Spider-Man games based on the 2nd and 3rd films but with improvements to navigation and combat. The story has been penned by Hollywood writer Seamus Kevin Fahey, who has written for episodes of Spartacus: Gods of the Arena and the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica. So unfortuently, no hints to the films plot here. While the gameplay looks much like things we’ve seen before, the presentation is certainly a lot more realistic, hollywood-ish and grittier which could potentially result in a more refreshing experience. My Spider-Sense is tingling for this one!
