Activision has just announced Spiderman: Edge of Time which is being developed by Beenox, the same team who did last year’s “Shattered Dimensions”. Shattered Dimensions was touted as one of the best Spiderman games to date, so Beenox has a lot to live up to with Edge of Time.
The story in Edge of Time sees Amazing Spiderman and Spiderman 2099 teaming up to try and correct a time-stream gone wrong, which leads to a catastrophic future bought on with the untimely death of Peter Parker.
Global brand management director Vicharin Vadakan said he following about Beenox.
“Beenox is once again taking a fresh and different approach to bring a fast-paced and high-octane adventure and unexpected story to life in Spider-Man: Edge of Time.”
Beenox studio boss Dee Brown added:
“At Beenox, we are constantly listening to the fans and looking for new and creative ways to innovate the gameplay experience for them.
“We want to create a totally distinct experience in Spider-Man: Edge of Time by working with Peter David on the story and creating this urgent, high-stakes experience where time is working against you and the fate of Spider-Man hangs in the balance.”
The game is to make its first appearance at Wondercon 2011 in San Francisco this weekend. No platforms have been confirmed yet, but you can expect the game to appear on all major consoles and hand-held’s.
