My spidey sense is tingling and it’s telling me to go back to the future. Activison’s Beenox development studio is showing off Spider-Man: Edge of Time to the E3 masses. Since the story was written by Peter David, who has worked on comics such as The Incredible Hulk and Spider-Man 2099, the game is sure to get a lot of attention at E3. Activision has just released a brain-twisting trailer for the game.
Peter Parker has been killed by a mad scientist! In order to save humanity from a world without Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2099 and classic Spider-Man must work together to prevent Peter Parker’s untimely death. Players will switch control between Spider-Man before the events of his death and Spider-Man 2099 as he works to prevent Parker’s death from the 2099 universe. The game will feature a dynamic “cause and effect” gameplay system where the actions of Spider-Man will effect the universe of Spider-Man 2099 or vice-versa. If time-paradoxes have you confused, check out the trailer below.
Sadly Activision don’t have their own press conference this year, but we’ll be sure to let you know if they make an appearance at Sony’s show.
