The lights are on
The webslinger returns this fall, as Activision has announced
Spider-Man: Edge of Time for a release on unspecified consoles.
Shattered Dimensions' developer Beenox is back at the helm of this title (check out Ben Reeve's review of that game, here), and Spidey's time-traveling ways will continue courtesy of a story penned by Spider-Man 2099
co-creator Peter David. According to the game's press release, the
story tasks you with trying to "prevent a catastrophic future brought on
by the early and untimely death of Peter Parker."
Despite the continuing use of the time continuum, Beenox studio boss
Dee Brown says that Edge of Time will be different from Shattered
Dimensions. "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.”
Look for more info on Edge of Time soon, as the game will debut at WonderCon this weekend.

Why am I not excited for this game? It's Spidey...again!
Still not played the first one, but I will for sure be getting it over the summer drought of games.
I liked shattered dimensions a lot, so im actually pretty excited for this. It has an interesting concept behind it too
"The fate of Spider-Man hangs in the balance." Haha.... puns....
It sounds like a much more serious game than Shattered Dimensions. Could be interesting.
This sounds interesting.
This sounds like it could be a great game with a really good story. I didn't get a chance to play shattered dimensions, but I have only heard good things about it. I'm sure this game won't disappoint if the same developer is making it.
The artwork looks awesome, it has a much more serious tone. I'm really looking forward to this.
OMG!! Can't wait... so excited to hear new Spider-Man coming out this year :D:D:D
Sounds like it could be fun. The image is awesome
The name sounds cool, hopefully the rest of the game is too. I can't wait to see more details from the game at WonderCon.
I'm all for another Spidey game. Can't wait.
That picture looks pretty epic. I still haven't played Shattered Dimensions but I'd love to check it out (and this) if I have the time.
