Developer Beenox has taken to the PlayStation Blog
to unveil some new footage from their upcoming web-slinging title The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the video game adaptation of the soon-to-be-released Hollywood movie of the same name.
Alongside the five minute PlayStation 4 footage, creative director Thomas Wilson has also offered up an in-depth analysis at what you can expect in the new Spider-Man adventures, including the ability to take off the mask and become Peter Parker for the day.
Your cell phone is more than just a glorified menu and map — it’s also how you gauge your progress as New York’s guardian arachnid. The new “Hero or Menace” system is a way for us to personalize the act of safeguarding everyday citizens’ lives, by adding real consequences for Spider-Man and the city as a whole based on your actions (and inactions). We really want you to feel like you’re the hero behind the mask, and that means giving you all the challenges and choices that ol’ Webhead has to deal with moment-to-moment.
And that also means letting you take off that mask to experience a slice of life from Peter Parker’s perspective by investigating multifaceted characters, as well as letting you go home to visit Aunt May and take care of personal business. The sight of Peter’s wardrobe is a cool one, and we’re excited for players to get their hands on the range of suits we’ve included in the game. As with the shift in web-swinging, these costume choices offer far more than just a cosmetic effect.
Check it out in action below, and hit up the full blog post for more details about what to expect from the web-slinging hero.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is due out on April 29th for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Wii U.
