|May 1, 2014 06:42 PM EDT
Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision
Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI)
is set to release The Amazing Spider-Man 2™, an all-new
single-player, third-person action-adventure video game based on
Marvel’s beloved Spider-Man character and inspired by the upcoming film
of the same name from Sony Pictures Entertainment. This original title,
available now from development studio Beenox, brings the energy and
excitement of the long-running Super Hero franchise to fans looking for
a unique adventure that expands beyond the movie’s narrative.
“We’ve worked closely with Marvel to create a new story for The
Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game that stands on its own from the
events of the movie,” said Activision Publishing’s Vice President and
General Manager, Kurt Niederloh. “We’re placing a strong spotlight on
Peter Parker, the man behind the mask, and his infamous nemeses,
including Electro, Kingpin and the Green Goblin, among others. The video
game not only is based on the upcoming blockbuster movie but in
addition, also offers its own unique, complete narrative.”
In crafting the sequel to their 2012 title, The Amazing Spider-Man,
Beenox focused on reinvigorating and refining the action-adventure
foundation established by the original, beginning with the urban
playground of New York City. The Amazing Spider-Man 2
emphasizes open-world freedom in its redesign of Manhattan, remade with
new visuals, architecture, challenges and surprises to discover. “We
want players to have more things to do and more fun when they do them,”
noted Thomas Wilson, Co-Studio Head at Beenox. “Every advancement we’ve
made with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 informs that theme.
From the Hero or Menace dynamic and new visual designs to the changes to
combat and focus on Peter Parker – everything’s there to make that world
feel more diverse, more engaging and more enjoyable.”
In addition, Activision, Sony Pictures and Sony Computer Entertainment
of America have teamed up to release The Amazing Spider-Man 2
PlayStation 3 bundle, available exclusively at Walmart.
Available in more than 2,700 stores and online at Walmart.com, the
bundle retails for $269 and includes a PS3™ 500GB system, a copy of The
Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game and The Amazing Spider-Man
movie on VUDU. Also exclusively at Walmart, for those interested in
purchasing only the stand-alone game, a $10 concession cash voucher is
included with all PS4™, PS3, Xbox 360, and Nintendo Wii U™ system launch
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is available in North America on
