As I promised in the news from the Spider-Man: Edge of Time panel at WonderCon, here is your first look at the trailer for the game, as well as the first released screenshots.
There used to be an embeded media player here, but it doesn't work anymore. We blame the Tumbeasts.
There hasn’t been any new info released along with these morsels, but I can make a couple of observations.
- Based on what I’m seeing of the gameplay I wouldn’t be expecting the open city swinging that fans have been clamoring for (and has been missing since Web of Shadows). I could be wrong on that, but based on Shattered Dimensions and what’s being shown I don’t want to get anyone’s hopes up.
- Speaking of Shattered Dimensions, whether you loved it or hated it, the diving sequences from 2099’s gameplay are back. They did do away with the pulsing light effect in the costume that some folks complained about though, so I guess that’s something.
- Spider-Man actually does die (at least initially). Perhaps I missed something during the live feed (they did have some issues with the internet connection at WonderCon) but it looks like the scientist that goes back to the past to destroy Spider-Man actually does succeed at first in killing the wall-crawler, but that the Spider-Man of 2099 reaches back to an earlier version of Spider-Man to try and avoid the eventual death. They spent a lot of time during the panel discussing how to approach Spider-Man: Edge of Time, and now I can see why. That’s going to take some explaining so comic book laymen don’t have their heads explode.
I’ll leave you and the pretty pictures alone now. We’ll have more here on Mash Those Buttons as it gets released.
