The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will no doubt be one of the biggest films of 2014. The original may not have been able to eclipse the sales of the original Spider-Man, but the second one is looking pretty good. Oh, Activision is also launching a game-tie-in to complement the movie experience.
While we have known about the game we haven’t actually seen it. Activision and Beenox have finally lifted the lid on the game with a brand new gameplay trailer showcasing what Spider-Man does best. From the looks of things gameplay will be nearly identical to that of the 2012 game with players being able to swing around New York and web up enemies.
The plot will not follow that of the film, but will take place alongside the film’s events. It involves Peter Parker’s search for his uncle’s killer, a plot point that was left open following the events of the first film. Kraven the Hunter makes an appearance as Spider-Man’s mentor teaching him how to hunt and be stealthy. The end of the trailer also confirms that Electro will be making an appearance.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is out sometime Spring 2014 for PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U and 3DS. Check out the gameplay trailer below:
