The Amazing Spider-Man DLC Swings to PSN Tomorrow

Stephane Gravel's Avatar + Posted by Stephane Gravel on Sep 24, 2012 // Executive Producer, Beenox

We’ll be launching four Amazing Spider-Man DLC packs on PlayStation Network tomorrow, starting with the Stan Lee Adventure and Rhino Challenge, as well as two new packs – The Lizard Rampage and Oscorp Search & Destroy. In deciding what new content would interest fans of the game, we realized the only thing that could compare to playing as the webhead himself was to let players step into the shoes of other notable characters: The Lizard, Rhino, and my personal favorite, Stan Lee. Plus, you can also fight crime within cool retro-arcade inspired mini-games through Spider-Man’s in-game smartphone. Here’s what you can expect from each of the DLC packs coming your way.

The Amazing Spider Man on PS3

In The Lizard Rampage Pack, you’ll play as The Lizard on a quest to stop Oscorp from releasing a cross-species virus blast into the city. With your devastating attacks and speed, you can create chaos throughout the city on a massive scale, using your powerful tail swipes to rip through Oscorp guards or claw strikes to knock down the toxic towers placed around the city. The more you destroy, the more bonus points you’ll earn! But that’s not all: In addition to playing as The Lizard, you will also gain access to the Vigilante Spider-Man suit. This is the outfit Spidey wore to fight crime before he created the awesome suite he wears today. If you’ve seen The Amazing Spider-Man movie, it should look familiar…

Developed in a classic arcade style, the two mini games of the Oscorp Search & Destroy Pack allow you to both fight and investigate crime all over Manhattan. With the help of your smartphone, you can control Oscorp’s giant mechanical snake and guide it through the streets, destroying everything in your way and taking over Manhattan. The other minigame allows you to take control of the Hunter Robot, reprogrammed by the ever beautiful and intelligent Gwen, to defend the citizens of New York City against the never-ending waves of mechanical and cross-species enemies.

The Rhino Challenge Pack lets you destroy everything in your path without bias. You’ll take control of the mighty Rhino and unleash his destructive powers in a race against time. The speed, the force, the combos, and the sheer strength of Rhino will allow you to trample cars, buses, and anything else that gets in your way, causing panic in the streets of Manhattan. Be sure to check out your times and scores against your friends via the online leaderboards. How do you measure up?

The Amazing Spider Man on PS3

The Stan Lee Adventure Pack is definitely the one DLC pack you can’t miss. For the first time, players will be able to control Stan Lee, but with all the powers and abilities of Spider-Man as he sets out to collect the pages of his latest script that have gone loose through the city. Listen to the godfather of Marvel Comics, the creator of Spidey himself, in his own voice dish out hilarious puns and one-liners as you swing through the streets of Manhattan and fight crime. Also, a very special surprise will be waiting for you at the end of the challenge…it’s the 50th anniversary of Spider-Man and nobody knows how to party like Stan “The Man” Lee. Excelsior!

The Amazing Spider-Man game, as well as the DLC packs, will be available for download September 25th on the PlayStation Store. Each DLC pack ranges from $3 to $4, but you can also bundle the packs together for 10 bucks if you’re into deals — and frankly, who isn’t?

We are truly excited to bring this content to PS3, and we hope you have has much fun playing each pack as we did developing them.

DLC? How about you guys reduce this game to a reasonable price before you worry about putting out dlc.
$59.99 for the digital psn version of a movie-in game is just absurd.

I was really interested in trying this game because i heard it had the open world freedom that Spiderman 2 had back in the day. But i refuse to spend more than $30 on a game made to ride the coat tails off a (mediocre) movie.

I won this game from Hardees, twice actually gave the 2nd copy to a friend. I really like the game, despite all the negativity towards this game on the internet, I think its a very fun game and thats really all its about. Thanks for finally releasing the dlc, was really hoping for some new costumes but this is good too.

I pre-ordered for the Stan Lee DLC, but I’m glad i can purchase the remaining DLC. Very much loved the movie, the game, and the Stan Lee DLC. So I’m excited to get these other two DLC packs.

Glad to see extra content coming to a great game. Would have loved a vita version of the game. Please consider releasing previous spiderman games in the playstation store as digital releases (previous ps3, ps2, ps1, and psp spiderman games). In light of no vita version of Amazing Spiderman it would be great if we could play his ps1 and psp adventures on our vita’s. Thanks for reading.

Is the Lizard Rampage Pack timed like the Rhino Challenge, or is it more open-world style like the Stan Lee Adventure Pack?

    Hi,

    The Lizard Rampage Pack is indeed timed-base, not unlike the Rhino Challenge.

    Hi,

    The costume is included in the Lizard Rampage Pack. You just need to go to the apartment in order to wear it.

Hey, Stephane Gravel! There’s something that NEEDS to be brought your attention. Iv’e tried to contact you guys SO may time about this so you can patch it but, to no avail. On the PS3 version (Xbox seems to be fine) The “Seeker Bots” vanish after you beat the campaign. This is extremely frustrating because I ( and several other faithful players) want to 100% the game and unlock that “New Movie Black Suit”. My stats screen on the OS-Phone specifically says “Seekers Destroyed 60%”. If you could reply to me, or at least bring this down the chain of command at Beenox and get it patched, I’d greatly appreciate it.

Sincerely,
A huge fan of you game.

    Hi,

    Thank you for your note and, especially for playing our game. Based on your description, it sounds like you still have more of Manhattan to explore. The island itself is divided into 10 sections (like a grid) and there is one seeker-bot for every section. Once a bot is destroyed, it will not re-appear in that section. So what I would recommend is that you start at one corner of the map and spend a few minutes there to make sure no seeker bots appear. Keep doing this until you’ve covered all the map and located all the missing seeker-bots. Good luck!

Hey Stephane! First off…I loved what I played of this game. Secondly, however, my game no longer recognizes my save file. It’s there on my harddrive, but the game doesn’t recognize it at the Start Screen.

I was 75% through the game on “Superhero” (Hard) with a lot of the collectibles unlocked and I really can’t bring myself to start over again. It was a lot of time spent combing the city for this stuff, and some incredibly challenging fights.

Activision won’t respond to my Customer Service Tickets, Beenox doesn’t seem to be getting my emails. Please tell me there’s a fix for this save file issue.

    Hello,

    Thank you for playing our game. I’m really sorry to hear about your issue and, unfortunately, it sounds like your save file was corrupted. At this point, I fear the only solution would be to start a new game.
