Another year usually means another Spider-Man game and this year Beenox returns as the developer for this title. This Spidey game titled, Spider-Man: Edge of Time, takes place around the timelines of The Amazing Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2099 and apparently the two Spideys have to work together to prevent the death of Peter Parker. Does this plot confuse some of you? It certainly confuses me, but so did the idea of Shattered Dimensions.
Activision has announced there is gameplay hook of a “cause and effect” style where the actions of either of the Spideys effects the other Spidey. Marvel’s Peter David, who notably wrote Spider-Man 2099 (with Rick Leonardi), is writing the story.
So far this title hasn’t been announced for any consoles, but one can assume that it will be coming to, at the very least, Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii. It has also been announced for release during this fall.
