Salutations, PlayStation community! First of all, I just want to say how grateful I am to the people who run PlayStation.Blog for giving me this space to speak to you today. It’s a real busy week for Spider-Man, with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game out today on PS3 and PS4, and the movie coming out this Friday. I think there are certain timeless qualities to ol’ Spidey that have made him so enduringly popular, and I was happy to see those traits on display as I worked on my scenes for the game.
Since taking over as stewards of the Spider-Man console gaming franchise, we’ve seized the opportunity to explore new territory with each game release. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on PS3 and PS4 created a great opportunity to build and improve on something rather than starting from a blank slate. The gameplay walkthrough we’ve prepared for you today shows off some of the ways we’ve gone about doing that, but I’d also like to briefly flesh out some of those details with a little more context.
Spider-Man is pretty incredible among super heroes. Rather than hide away from the world when confronted with the death of a loved one, he uses that very personal loss as motivation to invest even greater in society. Spider-Man can tango with street thugs, mutant hybrids, and mechanical monstrosities, but he’s not above your everyday cat-in-tree rescue.
