New 'Amazing Spider-Man' VGA Teaser Trailer, And Details On The Game

With a trailer making its debut at the VGAs, Marvel drops some info on the tie-in videogame for this summer's reboot to the Spider-Man movie franchise.

You couldn't expect the summer to come up on us with a new Spider-Man movie and not get a new game from publisher Activision, could you? Well, there is a new one being developed by Beenox Studios, the team behind the most recent Spider-Man game, Edge of Time, which I thought was pretty solid, if a little constrained by its closed in environment. Well, that shouldn't be an issue with the simply titled Amazing Spider-Man which will be a return to the open-city design of previous titles.

Here are some of the juicier details from the post:

"The Amazing Spider-Man" is in development at veteran game studio Beenox, and features an original narrative crafted by Hollywood writer Seamus Kevin Fahey (episodes of "Spartacus: Gods of the Arena" and the re-imagined "Battlestar Galactica") that continues young Peter Parker’s adventures following the events of the new film. Using the game’s new Web Rush mechanic allows players to pull off a vast array of moves never before possible. With a story that takes players through many areas all over--and under--Manhattan, fans will feel what it’s truly like to be a super hero, as they experience the cinematic adrenaline rush of web-swinging through the city and fighting crime using Spider-Man’s spectacular acrobatic moves and attacks.

The Spike TV VGAs will premiere LIVE on Spike TV, MTV2 and on Saturday, December 10 at 8:00 PM ET/5:00 PM PT.
