Launch trailer for 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' video game released

A new launch trailer for Beenox’s highly anticipated video game tie-in to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has been released, and it offers up a first look at both Carnage and Shocker, along with plenty of other great action!

The game is released this Monday, and as well as the new preview above, you can find the synopsis and details on the platforms it will be available on below.

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 set to be released for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One*, Xbox 360, Wii U, PC, and 3DS on April 29th, 2014.

*The Xbox One version has been delayed, and may not even end up being released.
