Spidey is coming to a gaming console near you as Activision ramp up its Marvel connection.
Activision’s Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions video game is scheduled for release in September 2010 and will allow players to travel through four different worlds as distinctly different versions of Spider-Man. This will include The Amazing Spider-Man and Spider-Man Noir.
As Spider-Man, players will experience a wide variety of gameplay and dramatic environments. The Amazing Spider-Man experience delivers innovative web combat and visuals in a world that pays tribute to the classic era of the legendary super hero. In contrast, Spider-Man Noir features a cunning and covert depiction of Spider-Man, who utilises shadows to perform stealth takedowns in a 1930’s-influenced, black-and-white cinematic environment.
“Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions delivers an original storyline that bridges four unique worlds,” said Rob Kostich, Head of Marketing, Activision Publishing, Inc. “Each action-packed universe will have its own detailed art design and thrilling missions, challenging gamers to use new skill sets to defeat enemies as they unlock powerful new moves and progress through the game.”
Penned by acclaimed Marvel comic book writer Dan Slott, the story takes players on a mission to capture the magical energy of the Tablet of Order and Chaos, which has been shattered and scattered across parallel universes. Gamers are challenged to battle fan-favorite villains such as the lethal Kraven and a custom, never-before-seen Noir version of Hammerhead, in a quest to restore the fabric of reality.
