Earlier this month, Beenox released a new trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game that included notable villains such as Kingpin, Black Cat, Electro, Green Goblin and a character that may have been Carnage. Today, we have yet another trailer for this game, which confirms the presence of Carnage and Shocker. While these characters have previously been teased in the sequel's Daily Bugle viral website, it hasn't been confirmed if these characters will actually pop up in the movie or not. In addition, Hot Toys has released new images of their Rhino action figure, which gives us the best look at this villain's massive, mechanized suit. Take a look at the trailer and images below. The video game will be released April 29 on Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, PC, Wii U and 3DS platforms, just a few days before the sequel hits theaters May 2.
From Beenox, the makers of the first The Amazing Spider-Man video game, this all-new third person action adventure will continue the story with an alternative take on The Amazing Spider-Man 2's events. Players will have an enhanced, free-roaming web-slinging experience through a greatly expanded New York City.
In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, players once again assume the role of the iconic Super Hero in a unique side-story inspired by the feature film but set in its own continuity. Throughout his journey, Spider-Man will encounter a number of new foes as well as some old friends, as he confronts a new threat to his beloved city. The narrative will give Peter Parker, Spider-Man's nerdy photojournalist persona, a greater role in the spotlight, as he investigates the complicated motivations and unique personalities behind the menagerie of Marvel menaces threatening Manhattan.
As Spidey, players will be able to free-roam through a greatly-enhanced Manhattan cityscape, one set to offer livelier, more engaging opportunities with which to put his sensational skills to use. Central to the expansive depth and detail being poured into The Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game is the new "Hero or Menace" system, which incentivizes Super Hero behavior by rewarding the web-slinger's crime-fighting efforts, and adds consequences for letting criminality fester. Spider-Man's personal brand of web-swinging and up-close-and-personal combat will see a variety of new features as well.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game is planned to launch alongside the feature film next spring for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360, Nintendo's Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, and Windows PC.
