You will believe that a beloved elder statesman of comics can crawl walls with this Amazon preorder bonus.
Back in May, Activision and developer Beenox announced a pretty interesting get for those of you looking to put down your money early at Amazon for The Amazing Spider-Man: playable Stan “The Man” Lee in the upcoming open world action game. And that’s what it looks like.
Here are the official details for this particular preorder bonus:
All the rumors can officially be put to rest – for the first time ever, fans will be able to play…STAN…LEE as himself in The Amazing Spider-Man. Players will take on the role of Stan “The Man” Lee in his own special mission across Manhattan, borrowing abilities from his old pal Spider-Man as they help Stan collect pages of his latest script in a spectacular race around Manhattan. Stan’s mission is punctuated with his witty banter that fans have come to know and love, and a special surprise waits for them at the end of the mission – after all, it is Spider-Man’s 50th anniversary this year! Unlockable for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 system ONLY. While supplies last. Limited time only.
Go beyond the feature film and find out what happens next in The Amazing Spider-Man™video game, which brings Spider-Man’s free-roaming, web-slinging action back to New York City. Players take on the role of a young Peter Parker discovering his new Spider-Man powers and added Super Hero responsibilities, using the game’s innovative Web Rush mechanic to swing freely around Manhattan, combat a variety of criminal activities and take on classic Marvel Super Villains. Set against an original story crafted by Hollywood writer Seamus Kevin Fahey (episodes of Spartacus: Gods of the Arena and the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica) that takes place entirely after the events of the upcoming feature film, The Amazing Spider-Man video game delivers a brand-new, immersive and cinematic adventure allowing players to truly harness the power of your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.
Now if, for some reason you don’t want to be an elderly comics pro in a video game, GameStop has a counteroffer with playable Rhino missions as part of their preorder bonus scheme.
The Amazing Spider-Man will be available on June 26th for the Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, 3DS, and DS.
