We haven’t seen a lot of Spider-Man: Edge of Time since our feature of the game, but at this year’s E3 we got to witness the unveiling of two of the game’s villains: Walker Sloan and Anti-Venom.

Developer Beenox teamed up with comic book icon Peter David to write the story for Spider-Man: Edge of Time. At the same time, they created a brand new villain, an evil scientist by the name of Walker Sloan. At the beginning of the game, Sloan creates a time portal and travels back in time to kill the Amazing Spider-Man thereby altering the course of history and creating a dystopian future. Only Spider-Man 2099 is aware of the anomaly, so using the time portal to warn the Amazing Spider-Man of his impending doom. The two heroes decide to team up and stop Sloan from creating his own, twisted version of the future.

Choices that the Amazing Spider-Man makes in the past will affect the world of Spider-Man 2099 in the future. Unfortunately, Sloan has implanted a chip inside the head of Anti-Venom, which allows the mad scientist to control the monster. Since Anti-Venom has the power to cure all mutations, he effectively depowers the Amazing Spider-Man in an epic battle inside the Alchemax building. Anti-Venom could be the villain that kills Spider-Man in the past, but we don’t know how Spider-Man 2099’s tinker could effect that past and help Amazing Spider-Man avoid his doom, since Beenox wasn’t willing to show us the end of the battle between to two powerhouses.

Spider-Man: Edge of Time looks like it shaping up well, and we’re eager to get our hands on the title when it comes out this fall.
