Treyarch is developing the Xbox 360 and PS3 incarnations of the multiplatform game Spider-Man 3. Previously they made these games: Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, and Ultimate Spider-Man.
For Spider-Man 3 they are refining the open-world approach it took with Spider-Man and Ultimate Spider-Man by adding some very cool new twists to the action (see the trailer below). Featuring a story that uses the film’s narrative as a base, it also adds in original elements and material taken from the comics to buff up the narrative and fill out a game to 10 plot threads. The crimes you’ll be dealing with will be more varied than in the previous games too.

At the center of the action is Spider-Man’s battle against the Sandman and a new Green Goblin. The stakes for the clash are much higher, as the tortured hero must come to grips with the fact that before the accident that transforms him into Sandman, petty thief Flint Marko was involved in the death of Peter Parker’s uncle. Then, of course, there’s the new Green Goblin–old chum Harry Osborn, who still blames Spider-Man for the death of his father, Norman, the original Green Goblin. As if that wasn’t bad enough, there’s a mysterious blob of goo that winds up attaching itself to our hero, which enhances his powers and gives his costume a dark makeover that’s more than cosmetic.
Here’s the new trailer for Spider-Man 3 The Game:
