Spider-Man: Edge of Time Game Announced

Marvel and Activision have announced their new Spider-Man game called Spider-Man: Edge of Time. The announcement comes just a day before WonderCon 2011 in San Francisco. In the game, he faces his biggest challenge yet… trying to save himself. The game is being developed by Activision’s own Beenox, the Quebec studio behind Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions.

In the game, you’ll play as both classic Amazing Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2099 as they try to fix the timestream that got screwed up and to prevent a doomed future that was caused by the early death of Peter Parker.

“At Beenox, we are constantly listening to the fans and looking for new and creative ways to innovate the gameplay experience for them,” said Dee Brown, Studio Head, Beenox. “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.”

You’ll be dealing with two different timelines, one in the present as regular Spider-Man, and on in the future as Spider-Man 2099. Peter David (co-creator of Spider-Man 2099) is crafting the narrative for the game. The coolest newest feature is the “cause-and-effect” gameplay, as you can see the changes that happened to one Spider-Man’s timeline because of the action from the other Spider-Man.

Attendees at WonderCon 2011 in San Francisco, CA, can get a sneak peek and learn more about the game on the Activision/Spider-Man panel on Saturday, April 2, at 4:30 p.m. in Room 103.
