Spider-Man: Edge of Time out today — details and trailer


Activision/Blizzard Press Release:

Today, Spider-Man™ faces his greatest challenge ever — saving Spider-Man — in Spider-Man™: Edge of Time, available now in North American retail stores from Activision Publishing, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI). Created by Beenox — the studio that developed last year’s popular Spider-Man™: Shattered Dimensions — players take the roles of both Peter Parker ‘s Amazing Spider-Man, and Miguel O’Hara’s Spider-Man 2099 in a harrowing, action-packed adventure, spanning two timelines 100-years apart in order to thwart a cataclysmic future from happening — and the death of Peter Parker.

“Just like with Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, Beenox is bringing a fresh perspective to the series with Spider-Man: Edge of Time,” said David Oxford , Executive Vice President and General Manager , Activision Publishing, Inc.  ” Dee Brown and the team at Beenox worked closely with Marvel’s own veteran writer and co-creator of Spider-Man 2099, Peter David , on a high-stakes narrative experience where the ultimate challenge is not only to save the world, but also save Spider-Man himself.”

“We’re very excited to bring Spider-Man: Edge of Time to Marvel fans everywhere,” said TQ Jefferson, Vice President of Games Production, Marvel Entertainment . “Activision and Beenox have managed to pack more fun, excitement and challenge into this game than their previous hit Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions; and we’re eager for fans – both new and old – to dive into Spidey’s latest pulse-pounding adventure.”

Playing as the two extremely different personas of Peter Parker and Miguel O’Hara, both heroic web-slingers must urgently work together to correct a timestream gone awry, save each other, and prevent the death of the Amazing Spider-Man.  With the story’s two timelines evolving in parallel, each Super Hero must navigate through “cause-and-effect” gameplay moments, utilizing Spider-Man: Edge of Time‘s picture-in-picture display where the actions of one Spider-Man can result in immediate, and sometimes unexpected, effects on the other Spider-Man and his surroundings.  Players will battle a variety of fan-favorite and all-new villains, including Anti-Venom and Black Cat 2099, using expanded combat abilities specific to each timeline — from Spider-Man 2099’s close-quarters brute force, futuristic enhancements and gravity-defying acrobatics, to the Amazing Spider-Man’s evasive techniques, upgraded web abilities and ranged tactics, as they race against time to preserve the balance of both worlds.

The game includes an all-star voice cast, beginning with legendary film star Val Kilmer as Walker Sloan ;Smallville and V mainstay  Laura Vandervoort as Mary Jane; Battlestar Galactica’s Katee Sackhoff as Black Cat; “The Spectacular Spider-Man’s” Josh Keaton as the Amazing Spider-Man; and Christopher Daniel Barnes , who voiced the iconic Marvel web-slinger in the 1994 “Spider-Man” series, as the voice of Spider-Man 2099.
