New Details For THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Video Game Emerge
Yesterday we saw the first official pic and a brief teaser trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 game, which will be released the same week as the new film. Well at today’s Marvel House of Ideas panel at New York Comic Con, a few new details about the upcoming game were revealed. Besides a little tease of how player’s choices will affect how people treat them in the game, we learned a little more about the game’s mechanics.
When the panel got around to the video game section of the chat, some technical difficulties were experienced and the short promo (which you can watch below) was described by Marvel VP of Games Production TQ Jefferson. He points out a few things you might not have noticed and then transitions to how Marvel approaches these movie tie-in games (transcription via CBR):
Picture if you will the city at night, sirens screaming, criminals, Easter Eggs about Fisk Tower. Spider-Man upside down, end scene!
The way we like to approach movie-based games is movie-based games should never be about the movie. You’ve seen the movie, you want more of Spider-Man, not what you’ve already seen.
The game will feature a “Heroes or Menace” system which will make the game’s world respond to how players act as Spider-Man. If players act irresponsible, taking the path of power over responsibility, the cit will respond accordingly. The game gets harder if players don’t act heroically.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 game will hit Xbox One, PS4, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC as well as the PS Vita this May. Before you go, here are a few final highlights we’ll throw at you in bullet point format
