“The Amazing Spider Man 2” Video Game Debuts at NYCC 2013
Look out! Here comes the Spiderman! Only this time, it’s his movie counterpart and his brand new video game sequel.
Developed by Beenox, “The Amazing Spiderman 2” will be out just before the theatrical release of the movie it is based on, and is just as much a sequel for the first game. Expanding into a wider open world environment, the game will now feature more RPG elements, including a “Hero or Menace” mechanic that either rewards or penalizes players depending on how well they keep up with crime.
In an interview done at Polygon, the designers revealed that there will be plenty of new features:
“Webs are a big part of Spider-Man, so the cool things we’re doing differently this time is that we have different types of webbing,” he said. “We have your typical impact webbing, your regular vanilla webbing. We are also going to have cryo-webbing. It sort of adds an RPG-like element.”
The webs will also now attach to buildings, and players can use the left and right triggers to have more control of their web slings.
“The Amazing Spider Man 2” will be available next year for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and Windows PC.
