VIDEO GAMES: 'Carnage' And 'Shocker' Featured In New Trailer For THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2

The launch trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 confirms rumours that Carnage and Shocker will be making an appearance in video game tie-in, and also features plenty of great new footage from the highly anticipated release. Will it be better than the movie?

By Josh Wilding - 4/25/2014
In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, players once again assume the role of the iconic Super Hero in a unique side-story inspired by the feature film but set in its own continuity. Throughout his journey, Spider-Man will encounter a number of new foes as well as some old friends, as he confronts a new threat to his beloved city. The narrative will give Peter Parker, Spider-Man’s nerdy photojournalist persona, a greater role in the spotlight, as he investigates the complicated motivations and unique personalities behind the menagerie of Marvel menaces threatening Manhattan.

As Spidey, players will be able to free-roam through a greatly-enhanced Manhattan cityscape, one set to offer livelier, more engaging opportunities with which to put his sensational skills to use. Central to the expansive depth and detail being poured into The Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game is the new “Hero or Menace” system, which incentivizes Super Hero behavior by rewarding the web-slinger’s crime-fighting efforts, and adds consequences for letting criminality fester. Spider-Man’s personal brand of web-swinging and up-close-and-personal combat will see a variety of new features as well.


The Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game is set to be released for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, PC, and 3DS on April 29th, 2014.

Looks awesome. Can't wait.

If Shocker ever makes an appearance in TASM 3 and beyond, it should be nothing more than a cameo Ultimate Spider-Man (game) style.
TheAbaryMan369 - 4/25/2014, 10:40 AM
Oh and the trailer isn't in my location BTW, so, [frick].
TheDarkLord - 4/25/2014, 10:41 AM
Awesome already pre ordered it!!!!
ibravosp5 - 4/25/2014, 10:44 AM
I'm literally pissed and disappointed...being a spiderman fan I literally was gonna get this game in my xbox one....
ibravosp5 - 4/25/2014, 10:45 AM
I have an xbox 360 but the 'x' button on the controller is stuck and my disc tray doesn't even work....it's really ashame...

@Abary
Exactly, I always thought it would be cool if one of the movies opened with Shocker stealing from a museum or something, and then Spidey sneaks in and kicks his ass. Then he leaves him for the cops and we segue into the rest of the movie.

Wasn't the Xbox One release delayed/cancelled?

Looks ok. The first was decent fun, nothing special. Doesn't look particularly good for current-gen (ps4/one) but might be fun, will probably get it at some stage once it's cheaper

Something I really loved about Ultimate Spider-man was how you'd get random stuff going on - a car-jacking, a shootout, some guy hanging off a ledge, etc... and then you'd have Shocker and Boomerang. You can just imagine Shocker being like "not again!"

Looks pretty f*ckin' cool.

cipher - 4/25/2014, 10:57 AM
Tainted- Heh, I always thought that was funny. Poor bastards just couldn't catch a break.
micvalpro - 4/25/2014, 10:57 AM
Meehhhhh
DrDoom - 4/25/2014, 10:58 AM
@ibravosp5

That's what you get for getting an Xbox One.
cipher - 4/25/2014, 10:59 AM
I imagine Shocker undergoing some form of spandex induced PTSD. He probably shits himself at the very sound of anything resembling a "THWIP".

He probably blows a hole through the roof at the sound of his own wet farts.
spidey1994 - 4/25/2014, 11:07 AM
Not available in my location?! FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!
ibravosp5 - 4/25/2014, 11:13 AM
@DrDoom cause I knew it was gonna get delayed/cancelled til July 1st or something like that ._____.
MrNiklander - 4/25/2014, 11:14 AM
Carnage is there without Venom ''creating him!?

Game looks good it seems they did upgrade the graphics.I will rent it because movie tie in games dont deserve to be bought.
OneBadDay - 4/25/2014, 11:41 AM
That is one nice looking Carnage.
Wetboy40 - 4/25/2014, 11:52 AM
If you live in the UK or anywhere and you can't see it here is a link to see it on YouTube:

OttoManHandsome - 4/25/2014, 11:56 AM
I don't like the idea of Carnage being before Venom.
jfrocks2002 - 4/25/2014, 12:14 PM
If it's as good as the last one (which was good for a movie tie-in, but pretty much just a "decent Batman Arkham Knock-Off"), I'll be happy. Plus, they've announced there's more to do in the open world, and once you complete the game, crimes are infinite, so it has replay-ability too. I'm looking forward to it more than I am the movie.
patrat18 - 4/25/2014, 12:22 PM
MEH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
BeyondTheGrave - 4/25/2014, 12:29 PM
Unfortunately I doubt The Amazing series is gonna make it passed the second movie, too overstuffed and just a launch pad for other movies. Iron man 2 was able to recover but I doubt spider-man will. Considering of the 2 movies there planning to launch only 1 serves any decent purpose (hint it's not the sinister six movie)
HunterMan - 4/25/2014, 12:35 PM
I'll be watching the walkthrough on yuotube and i will decide if i want the game or not
thewolfx - 4/25/2014, 12:58 PM
Venom is in the ios game .. he better [frick]in be in this one too


And carnage is huge .. which is stupid he should be spideys size..


Oh and if anyone wants this on xbone your [frick]ed


Get sum sense .. buy a ps4
Ramiel - 4/25/2014, 1:29 PM
Looks good! Not sure if I will purchase it though.
sharkman03191 - 4/25/2014, 1:37 PM
^Spider-Man games are the rare exception.
shadearts - 4/25/2014, 1:47 PM
i love my xbox one so who cares if another spiderman game that looks like the last generation game is delayed
poop23 - 4/25/2014, 1:58 PM
Probably not getting this, but carnage looks pretty baddass one the less
FantasticSpidey - 4/25/2014, 2:00 PM
"I have an xbox 360 but the 'x' button on the controller is stuck and my disc tray doesn't even work....it's really ashame..."

Thats why you don't buy XBOXs.
HunterMan - 4/25/2014, 2:10 PM
The amazing spider man 2 walkthrough is on youtube
Deathlok - 4/25/2014, 2:19 PM
I like how all of the villains that aren't in the movie look exactly like their comic book counterparts.
Starkasm - 4/25/2014, 3:33 PM
I have an xbone. [frick] y'all.
ibravosp5 - 4/25/2014, 4:09 PM
@Starkasm man [frick] yeah man
Indy - 4/25/2014, 4:15 PM
I'll wait for it be cheap.
SonGoku - 4/25/2014, 4:31 PM
Looks awesome. But I wish they'd still make Spider-Man games that aren't movie licensed.
Bigred20 - 4/25/2014, 5:11 PM
please let rhino be in this
ATrueHero1987 - 4/25/2014, 5:43 PM
Aye, stop the Xbox One slander!!
VIRILEMAN - 4/25/2014, 10:35 PM
Yeah, I'm really hoping for Rhino also.
loki668 - 4/26/2014, 12:59 AM
I thought it said "Carnage's Shocker". THAT would have meant something entirely different.
