The Amazing Spider-Man: Ultimate Edition

Go beyond Sony Picture Entertainment's Colombia Pictures feature film and find out what happens next in The Amazing Spider-Man video game, which brings Spider-Man's free-roaming, web-slinging action back to New York City.

Players take on the role of a young Peter Parker discovering his new Spider-Man powers and added Super Hero responsibilities, using the game's innovative Web Rush mechanic to swing freely around Manhattan, combat a variety of criminal activities and take on classic Marvel Super Villains. Set against an original story crafted by Hollywood writer Seamus Kevin Fahey (Spartacus: Gods of the Arena, Battlestar Galactica) that takes place entirely after the events of the upcoming feature film, The Amazing Spider-Man video game delivers a brand-new, immersive and cinematic adventure allowing players to truly harness the power of your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.

    The Amazing Spider-Man features
  • Spider-Man's Triumphant Return to New York - The Amazing Spider-Man brings everybody's favorite web-head back to Manhattan and marks the return of fan-favorite free-roaming, web-slinging gameplay. The return to a lively, dynamic Manhattan blended with a rich, driven narrative delivers the next evolution of the Spider-Man gameplay experience.
  • Web Rush: Player Choice Evolved - The Amazing Spider-Man video game also marks the debut of Beenox's innovative Web Rush game mechanic, which gives players real-time navigational and combat choices. Web Rush can be triggered on the fly, at any moment and immediately presents players with a variety of situational choices, letting them really BE Spider-Man as they fight crime and pull off his signature acrobatic moves like never before.
  • Find Out What Happens Next - In an all-new epilogue story crafted by Hollywood writer Seamus Kevin Fahey (Spartacus: Gods of the Arena, the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica), players take on the role of a young Peter Parker with his newfound Spider-Man powers and abilities in a thrilling adventure that takes place entirely after the events of the 2012 film reboot. The game's original storyline will allow fans to uncover more of Peter Parker's untold story.
  • Push Spider-Man's Abilities to the Limit - Armed with The Amazing Spider-Man's new Web Rush ability and evolved combat mechanics, players are challenged to think and act quickly and strategically, as Spider-Man faces off against reimaginings of classic Marvel Super Villains as well as original, larger than life enemies - some of the biggest ever seen in a Spider-Man video game - while racing to save Manhattan.
