Activision announces Spider-Man: Edge of Time for Q3 2011
WonderCon 2011 saw an announcement from Marvel and Activision – a new web-slinging adventure – Spider-Man: Edge of Time. After mixed reviews for the platform-spanning title, Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, Activision has once again charged developer Beenox to create the next Spidey offering. Shattered Dimensions writer and Spider-Man 2099 creator Peter David is at the helm once again.
The Edge of Time’s storyline could be thought of as a chronological sequel, but has been declared as a standalone piece. It has Amazing Spider-Man’s Peter Parker die in a time-travelling evil scientist attack from the future – the world of Spider-Man 2099.
Seeing it all happen but unable to prevent it the first time around, Spider-Man 2099’s world is turned into a post-apocalyptic nightmare due to the deleterious effects of Amazing Spider-Man’s demise. Spider-Man 2099 then joins up with Amazing Spider-Man before his death, to solve the mystery behind the whole episode, and the game ensues.
Beenox and Peter David have probably made a wise decision in limiting the game to Amazing Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2099, the two most balanced characters from the previous game - leaving out the specialized Noir and Ultimate Spider-Man.
Presumably, Spider-Man: Edge of Time will just like Shattered Dimensions be available across platforms as well, and is expected to release sooner than later – Q3 2011.
