Activision announces Spider-Man: Edge of Time

Activision has announced a new Spider-Man game as a sequel to Beenox's Shattered Dimensions.

Activision has announced a new Spider-Man game, called Spider-Man: Edge of Time, for release later this year on PC, Wii, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Developed by Beenox, who also worked on the recent Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions game that was also published by Activision, Edge of Time is set to be a third-person action platforming game.

The plot for Edge of Time will revolve around both the mainsteam Marvel interpretation of Spider-Man and the Marvel 2099 version - a superhero from an alternate timeline. Working together across different continuities, the Spider-Men must prevent the death of Peter Parker, who can then help 2099's Spider-Man avert a disaster.

The gameplay will apparently be built on a new cause-and-effect feature which sees the heroes able to affect each others worlds by wreaking changes on their own.

You can check out the trailer for Spider-Man: Edge of Time below - be sure to let us know your thoughts in the forums.

I'm actually quite interested in playing this, but I won't go out of my way to get it. Looks fun.

As always, I'll wait a bit before getting overly excited.

Of course, this being Activision, Spider-Man: Edge of Time 2, Spider-Man: Edge of Time 3 and Spider-Man: Edge of Time 4 are already being worked on and will be released at two monthly intervals. Then, this time next year, after disappointing sales of Spider-Man: Edge of Time 7 (Dangling From the Edge of Time), Activision will cancel the series, citing over-saturation of the market thanks to EA's competing franchise, ManSpider: Rim of the Clock.

You forgot the piracy...

I am not impressed by the clip. One thing I learned from clips is: If the teaser is bad, you can expect the game/movie to be much worse!

All I want from a superhero game is a free roaming sandbox in which you can mess around with superpowers! Give me Just Cause 2 with superpowers and a co-op mode and I'll be happy. Don't try to create an elaborate story or anything. Just a fun game!

Honestly? Partly because I quite like Marvel Comics and partly because I needed to test our new video partner.

Should it be auto-playing with sound? On both Firefox4 and IE8 the video loads and plays straight away.

Yes, this. Stop it doing that please!

Also, no buffering which isn't great for those people who don't have a perfect connection... :(

Looks good to me.

A game actually with a storyline I can follow - shocker :)

Of coure I will wait to read reviews before I buy it, Batman Arkam really showed how a hero game should be made, so lets hope this one ticks all the boxes for fans and gamers.

I don't think I've ever played a spider-man game that I've actually liked/enjoyed

Spiderman 3 (i think) was pretty good, in a "Webbing around the city is fun" kind of way. But I've yet to play a spiderman game that can get the wallcrawling e.t.c right indoors (they just need to mimic the alien gameplay from the first AvP imo).

Also, Phifty Cal, Try City of Heroes :P It's almost exactly that (well, it does have a story, a pretty damn good one, but it can easily be ignored)
