New Spider Man Game looks very Mirrors Edge-y
Laurence Howe / 6 years ago
Activision has released a new screenshot for The Amazing Spider-Man and we can’t help but see a little Mirror’s Edge in there.
The single screenshot has Spidey perched atop a building, looking down on the clean, gleaming city below. The shimmering glass, unembellished buildings and blue hues are strikingly similar to the utopian city depicted in EA’s Mirror’s Edge. We like what we’re seeing so far.
The Amazing Spider-Man is being developed by Edge of Time and Shattered Dimensions studio Beenox and will serve as as an epilogue story occurring after the events of the upcoming movie. From the looks of it Beenox will be breaking out of the narrow hallways of its last two titles and letting players web-sling around Manhattan.
In the initial reveal Activision confirmed Seamus Kevin Fahey, who has penned episodes of Spartacus: Gods of the Arena and the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica, will be writing the the game’s story.
