Today, Activision blew the lid off of one of the industry’s best kept secrets: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be receiving a video game based on the film. The open world game debuted today for the first time in divisive trailer that has dozens of people fighting to the verbal death over the game’s final quality.
In a surprise twist for games-based-on-films, the game’s story will be different than the film of the same name- as if to say in an artistic way: “we did it for the money.” Another new spin on the genre has players playing as Peter Parker, the investigator- much in the same way that fans clamor to file paperwork as Clark Kent and wash dishes as Aquaman’s mother.
The game will be released around the same time as the film on the PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, PS3, 360, PC, and 3DS. When asked about a possible Vita version, an Activision rep reportedly spit “the nastiest loogie you’ve ever seen” onto the journalist’s chin.
