Beenox has been hard at work on the new tie-in video game for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and with the game set to release in a little over a month, they've shared a few new details about what to expect with GameInformer. The entire game is said to be a complete revamp when compared to their previous titles.

One of the major improvements they've made will be web swinging around the city. Unlike the previous games where web swinging is accomplished by holding down a specific button, this time the player will need to alternate between the left and right triggers to navigate Spidey around the city. Holding a trigger to the left or right will move you into that direction. To increase speed, the player will need to alternate between left and right web shots at a quicker pace. Timing will be key.

In a brief description of the demo, it was confirmed that Peter Parker, as a civilian, will be a playable character on several missions. "He’s there to propel the plot along; when it’s time to fight or save people, he’ll need to don his costume." The scene that was described was Peter running into Harry Osborn at a private fund-raising event hosted by the Fisks.

The biggest addition to the game will be the new "Hero or Menace" system. The system is set to reward players for stopping crimes or punishing them for failing or not responding. When missions are successfully completed, Spider-Man's bravery and acumen will be recognized through special segments on the Bugle Channel, hosted by Whitney Chang. However, if missions are failed, J. Jonah Jameson himself will take over the airwaves to tear Spidey a new one. As players accumulate more acclaim or notoriety, they'll be treated differently by civilians. Be a hero and they'll clap and cheer for you endlessly, but be seen as a menace, and they'll run away screaming in terror. In addition to that, Oscorp drones will also be sent after you and your stats will be penalized.

Check out several stills from both the console and mobile versions of the game below and catch GameInformer's full coverage of the game HERE.


The first six stills are from Beenox's Console version of The Amazing Spider-Man 2:

Pick up The Amazing Spider-Man 2 for PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, iOS, Android, Nintendo 3DS, and Microsoft Windows on April 29, 2014.



We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.

It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.

Looks pretty decent... but then again it's a Movie tie-in video game, we know all too well how those turn out.

That thug looks like shocker
HBarnill - 3/20/2014, 11:44 PM
Graphics are terribly outdated.
spidey1994 - 3/20/2014, 11:47 PM
The first picture is stunning!
nikgrid - 3/20/2014, 11:57 PM
[frick] you Beenox. Take some lessons from Rocksteady.

Love Spider-man, hate your games.
LittleDanglyThing - 3/21/2014, 12:14 AM
If the web swinging is anything like Ultimate Spider-Man or Spider-Man 2 The Game then it doesn't need to take lessons from Rocksteady.

Movie tie in games are bad but the only good one was in fact Spider-Man 2.. it was amazing. The Wolverine Origins game was ok and it was 10 times better than the movie.

Please don't f*** this up again Beenox please for once listen to the fans and bring back the swinging mechanics from 10 years ago. Assholes.

The first ASM game was actually pretty good. The combat was skill-based and challenging, though obviously a less-polished version of Arkham combat. The stealth was not bad (but a little too easy considering Spidey can crawl on ceilings where enemies rarely look). The big boss battles were fun and hectic. My only major problem was the webswinging.

So now I have one rule about Spider-Man games: I don't buy them if the webs don't have to attach to something. The movie tie-in to Spider-Man 2 had physics-based webswinging that was both very hard and very rewarding. When they accomplish that again, then I'll bite. Not until.
Darktower - 3/21/2014, 12:24 AM
SERIOUSLY ??? looks damn CHEAP !! DO UR HOME WORK BEENOX !!
MrNiklander - 3/21/2014, 12:32 AM
My god I usually those grphics SUCK ASS.Those gameplay trailers better change my mind
LittleDanglyThing - 3/21/2014, 12:33 AM
@dorsk188

Exactly.
No web swinging physics. No purchase.
No Idea why they went away from that and for so long too. You'd think they'd actually listen to the fans at least ONCE.
sintzu - 3/21/2014, 12:35 AM
it's no rocksteady game but it looks like it will be very fun to play
LittleDanglyThing - 3/21/2014, 12:36 AM
Seriously? Graphics don't make a good game. It's not like those graphics suck either it looks like any other game for its type and scale.
Spider-Man 2 the Movie Game had bleh graphics for its time and it was still amazing.
thewolfx - 3/21/2014, 12:36 AM
Please let this be as good as spiderman 2


Iknow its shitty beenox but hopefully they actual listen to the fans this time.
Chloefornication - 3/21/2014, 12:38 AM
They always say deep interesting things about their half-ass games.
Humperdink - 3/21/2014, 12:41 AM
The games are okay but the balloons are where the real fun is at.

thewolfx - 3/21/2014, 12:42 AM
As for the swinging it sounds about right but spiderman doesnt always swing monkeybar style i hope you can choose one webbed swing or 2


Oh and if your a menace would the newyorkers boo and throw things at you?

He still spiderman i can only see citizens running in terror from you if you have the black suit on
nikgrid - 3/21/2014, 12:44 AM
@Littledanglything

You're damn right about SM 2 swinging mechanics...IMO THAT is still the best SM game. Agreed graphics don't necessarily make a good game...but If they expect me to pay the same price as Arkham Knight for it....they better look like they at least put some effort into them. All Beenox SM games have sucked IMO.
LittleDanglyThing - 3/21/2014, 12:50 AM
@Nikgrid

Yea I can agree with that "if a game has half assed graphics it better not be full price" part.
Yea Beenox just hasn't done anything decent with Spider-Man Treyarch was going places with Spider-Man 2 but kinda took a step back with Spider-Man 3.
Who the hell made Ultimate Spider-Man for that matter? That game was the bees knees too.
JJJameson - 3/21/2014, 1:11 AM
I've heard some good buzz from this game. And I do like these new batch of stills, but I'm still waiting for the gameplay and reviews to be sure this will be as great as it should be.
Chloefornication - 3/21/2014, 1:20 AM
It's been 10 years since Spider-Man 2 and that game is still addictive and still has the best web swinging ever.
SKOne - 3/21/2014, 3:23 AM
I loved the first Amazing Spider-Man game and spent hours chasing the comics pages. I really hope this includes all the villains from the second film, because I really want to fight the robot Rhino.
KingSilence - 3/21/2014, 3:28 AM
This looks really bad. Terrible graphics.
HavocPrime - 3/21/2014, 3:59 AM
The first pic looks brilliant and then the rest take a sharp dive in quality.
CaptainAmerica31 - 3/21/2014, 4:58 AM
Beenox sucks at making spidey games. I wish the people who made SM2 made this. Graphics don't look good
ibravosp5 - 3/21/2014, 5:51 AM
Where is that walkthrough demo we were promised? I've been waiting for three days, beenox said it would release after the GDP conference
superotherside - 3/21/2014, 6:00 AM
Man the graphics look incredible! IDK if my gamecube can handle it!

;P

"To move forward in a controlled and speedy pace, you need to alternate between left and right web shots. It’s jarring at first, but I quickly got into the rhythm of things. It’s more satisfying to get around, since you’re timing when you alternate your webs, and when you release them to gain and maintain the maximum momentum. "


That's exactly what I thought's been missing in the past few games. I'm glad they're finally getting the web-swinging right.The suit looks too bright for my taste,but game-wise,I loved TASM,except for the webswinging and the lack of random missions not related to the story.Once you got 100% in the game there was absolutely nothing to do but replay the main story missions or web swing.I'm actually looking forward to this game and I hope we get to see it in action,but I'm liking what I'm seeing as of now.
NightWatcher - 3/21/2014, 6:16 AM
I hope other people saw this...

ComradeGrey - 3/21/2014, 7:05 AM
Why the [frick] couldn't they just use the already perfect web swinging system from Spider-Man 2? NOPE. GOTTA DO OUR OWN THING. [frick] beenox.
NightWatcher - 3/21/2014, 7:41 AM
Just incase no one saw it Stark industries in the pic above.

Crossover?
fettastic - 3/21/2014, 7:45 AM
Looks like fun to me. I haven't played a Spider-Man game since Spider-Man 2 on the PS2.
Spidey5194 - 3/21/2014, 7:51 AM
So...do the webs stick to buildings?
Fray - 3/21/2014, 8:49 AM
Bitch, bitch, bitch. That's all gamers seem to do anymore. Go play an '80s Atari game and then come back and tell me that the graphics suck in this game. Sure, it's not Far Cry 3 or Remember Me or Tomb Raider (2013) quality, but there's nothing wrong with this in the least. We've come a LONG way in gaming design. Stop complaining like a bunch of 5-year-olds and just ENJOY it (not that you will, of course, b/c you're only happy when you're complaining.) Just don't buy the damn thing if you really want to make a statement to the company.
EpitomeofAwesome - 3/21/2014, 8:54 AM
@NightWatcher That's an Oscorp logo on the image in the article...
LeonardKnows - 3/21/2014, 11:39 AM
No 3ds and PsVita Screens? :( @NightWatcher Woah! Stark! Meat balls!
CaptainSporty - 3/21/2014, 12:37 PM
STARK INDUSTRIES EASTER EGG
CaptainSporty - 3/21/2014, 12:37 PM
and just for the non gamers, THE FIRST WAS ON EOF THE BEST MOVIE TIE IN GAMES EVER.
notmuchtotellreally - 3/21/2014, 1:03 PM
Those graphics look amazing!!!! Wtf are you talkin about!!!!??
HBarnill - 3/21/2014, 1:08 PM
True, graphics don't make a game (story and characters do), but if this is gonna be $60, then it at least should look like it. This looks about $40 at most.
