Armchair web-crawlers can look to swing through the skies on October 4. That’s the official release date for Spider-Man: Edge of Time, as announced by Activision at a Comic-Con event earlier today. Players get to control The Amazing Spider-Man and his futuristic counterpart, Spider-Man 2099, battling evil and thwarting devious plans along the way.
The game is the sequel to last year’s Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, which I personally found to be an underrated gem. Although it had some minor issues, there were a lot of things that I really enjoyed about the game – the number one thing being how creative it was.
Instead of being an open-world game, with too much on the go at once and lacking enough polish (my opinion of the open world Spidey adventures), it was a more confined but better experience. Each level had its own theme based on its final boss, with unique enemies and mechanics. Plus, it was fun to play as different versions of the titular webcrawler.
