Spider-Man: Edge of Time Release Date Announced

Spider-Man: Edge of Time will be released on October 4th, 2011 in America & October 7th in Europe for Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, PC, 3DS and DS.

Developed by Beenox, the title is the follow-up to Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, taking that game and building onto it’s base design but with an all-new storyline, villains to battle and two different Spider-Men of different eras to control.

The storyline has Spider-Man 2099 attempting to stop Alchemax scientist Walker Sloan from destroying the future and the state of the world via killing off Peter Parker, thus stopping Spider-Man and his goodness from all the work he has done to stop evil. Walker Sloan plans to do this by using his knowledge of the future world and then traveling back to the past and founding Alchemax ahead of its time. In this future world, Alchemax rules the world and Anti-Venom murders Spider-Man. However future Spider-Man, that of Spider-Man 2099’s Miguel O’Hara, sets out to prevent this from happening.

It’s an intriguing concept, and one that will definitely create a cool story for Spidey fans to enjoy.

Making appearances in Spider-Man: Edge of Time are the likes of Black Cat and Mary Jane Watson. You can see both in the new Comic-Con 2011 trailer below, which shows Black Cat with a new “future” look, and Mary Jane being saved in the present by Spider-Man 2099. As you’d expect, the two different times of past and future allow things to be changed depending on your actions in one era. This is also the first game to put Anti-Venom as a starring villain.

Here is the Comic-Con trailer.

Spider-Man: Edge of Time is a focused, action-packed adventure set in two connected and evolving timelines, from the contemporary times of the Amazing Spider-Man to the corrupted future world of Spider-Man 2099, against the backdrop of a rich, tightly crafted narrative by acclaimed Marvel veteran Peter David (co-creator of the comic book series Spider-Man 2099). The game features all-new “cause-and-effect” gameplay, where players will see how the immediate and sometimes unexpected effects of their actions as one Spider-Man changes the timeline of the other Spider-Man.
