Video: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 PS4 Video Developer Walkthrough

100°
3w ago - Beenox Creative Director Thomas Wilson shared a PS4 Developer walkthrough video spotlighting The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on PlayStation 4 below today.

To quote: Since taking over as stewards of the Spider-Man console gaming franchise, we've seized the opportunity to explore new territory with each game release.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on PS3 and PS4 created a great opportunity to build and improve on something rather than starting from a blank slate. The gameplay walkthrough we've prepared for you today shows off some of the ways we've gone about doing that, but I'd also like to briefly flesh out some of those details with a little more context.

The new mechanics of web-swinging are more than just a visual tick, and that's why we often start off pointing them out. Controlling separate sides of Spider-Man with separate sides of your brain has a great psychological effect, and it really immerses you even deeper into your character, particularly when you have to decide to use the right or left trigger based on the physical location of buildings as you swing through the city.





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....
 

Beenox: The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Building a Better Playground

50°
11w ago - Beenox Executive Producer Stephane Gravel detailed how to build a better playground in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 for both PS4 and PS3 platforms today!

To quote: Spider-Man is pretty incredible among super heroes. Rather than hide away from the world when confronted with the death of a loved one, he uses that very personal loss as motivation to invest even greater in society.

Spider-Man can tango with street thugs, mutant hybrids, and mechanical monstrosities, but he's not above your everyday cat-in-tree rescue.

He doesn't have a secret lair or concealed base of operations; he's just a guy in bright blue and red tights doing mid-air somersaults down Fifth Avenue. He wants to be seen. He enjoys this.

We had a few core goals for The Amazing Spider-Man 2: invigorate the experience with greater variety in play, more focused storytelling, and more natural pacing; deliver a world worth protecting; and finally, give you all the tools you need to make it fun to do so.

It means improving and refining on what came before with fresh content, to be certain, but it also means staying true to that unique personality, using it to inform every decision we make.

We've added a few new things to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 to achieve that end. First and foremost, we...

27w ago - Mercenary Technology Executive Producer Bill Chinn announced that The Amazing Spider-Man is swinging to PlayStation Vita.

To quote: Look out! With New York Comic Con just around the corner, I'm swinging by to let you know more about the upcoming PS Vita release of The Amazing Spider-Man from Activision, a hand-held version of the original PS3 title.

For those of you new to the series, The Amazing Spider-Man takes place after the events of the movie and features a new, original story. It mixes all-out, freeform brawls and stealth-based, stalk-and-strike challenges with a fast-paced momentum that puts Spidey front and center in the action.

If you caught the game when it first launched on PS3, you already know The Amazing Spider-Man gives you free roam and free reign over the isle of Manhattan, a bustling and beautiful open world teeming with sights to see, citizens to aid and colossal bosses to rip down.

The Amazing Spider-Man PS3 DLC Swings to PSN Tomorrow

200°
82w ago - Beenox Producer Stephane Gravel has announced today that The Amazing Spider-Man PS3 DLC will be swinging to PSN tomorrow!

To quote: We'll be launching four Amazing Spider-Man DLC packs on PlayStation Network tomorrow, starting with the Stan Lee Adventure and Rhino Challenge, as well as two new packs - The Lizard Rampage and Oscorp Search & Destroy.

In deciding what new content would interest fans of the game, we realized the only thing that could compare to playing as the webhead himself was to let players step into the shoes of other notable characters: The Lizard, Rhino, and my personal favorite, Stan Lee.

Plus, you can also fight crime within cool retro-arcade inspired mini-games through Spider-Man's in-game smartphone. Here's what you can expect from each of the DLC packs coming your way.

In The Lizard Rampage Pack, you'll play as The Lizard on a quest to stop Oscorp from releasing a cross-species virus blast into the city. With your devastating attacks and speed, you can create chaos throughout the city on a massive scale, using your powerful tail swipes to rip through Oscorp guards or claw strikes to knock down the toxic towers placed around the city.

The more you destroy, the more bonus points you'll earn! But that's not all: In addition to playing...
 

Video: Activision: The Amazing Spider-Man Swings to PS3 Today

95w ago - Activision Associate Producer Travis Day has announced alongside new a video trailer that The Amazing Spider-Man swings onto PS3 today with collectible suits and comics.

To quote: Good news - The Amazing Spider-Man video game comes to PS3 today with PlayStation Move support.

The game's story picks up right where this summer's blockbuster movie, The Amazing Spider-Man, leaves off in a new tale crafted by acclaimed Hollywood writer Seamus Kevin Fahey and voiced by veteran talent such as Nolan North, Sam Riegel, and Bruce Campbell (and even Stan Lee, for those of you who pre-ordered the game from Amazon!)

The Amazing Spider-Man has been developed by the veteran webheads over at Beenox (creators of Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions) and the team has been hard at work over the last two years to bring Spider-Man back home to an open-world Manhattan teeming with side missions and playable content.

In addition to bringing back free-roaming gameplay, the team has dramatically improved the combat system and added an entirely new feature called Web Rush. Stick with me and I will explain why this is the best Spider-Man game yet!





In The Amazing Spider-Man, you'll swing all over Manhattan stopping...
