There’s a new Spider-Man film out next year and if you thought for a second that there wouldn’t be a game to take advantage of that film release, then you’ve obviously been huffing web fluid again.
Beenox will once again be handling development on this sequel, where players get to roam the streets and skyscrapers of the big apple – New York City. According to the announcement, the cityscape itself has been enhanced, while a new “Hero or Menace” system has been added to the game itself.
What that system does, is reward players for keeping crime under control, while also adding consequences for allowing it to spread unchecked. I dug parts of the Spider-Man game from Beenox last year.
It looked great, had some fantastic design elements and web-slinging around Manhattan felt fantastic. Unfortunately, the simplistic combat and uninspired levels that the game took place in dragged it down several notches. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t amazing either.
The sequel game is out May 2014, and it’ll be hitting Xbox 360, Xbox One, Playstation 3, Playstation 4, PC, Wii U and 3DS. The original game itself is out soon on PS Vita.
