Activision expects to "release fewer games based on license properties" in 2013.
A slew of new DLC for Beenox's The Amazing Spider-Man is slated for release tomorrow on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, Activision has announced. It's out today in North America.
Lego Batman 2 has held onto the UK all-formats chart top spot despite tough competition from a handful of big new releases.
Amazing or not, Activision's new Spider-Man game will arrive weeks late on PC.
Activision has released an image showing for the first time Stan Lee as a playable character in the next Spider-Man game.
How bad must a game be to get refused release on Xbox?
You know that thing everybody always moans about when Beenox turns in a perfectly serviceable but rather linear Spider-Man game? That thing about everybody actually wanting a return to the open-world web-swinging of Spider-Man 2? Yeah, well Beenox fixed that thing everybody always moans about.
For The Amazing Spider-Man, Peter Parker's got all of New York City to play around in once more: he can swing down 5th Avenue, jump most of Central Park in a single bound and splat himself against the wall of the Empire State Building whenever he wants - or at least the wall of a building that looks a lot like the Empire State Building, since the design for the original is under copyright (or whatever the equivalent of copyright is for skyscrapers).
Beenox, in other words, has done what everyone was asking them to do. After the unexpected pleasures of Shattered Dimensions and the mild disappointments of Edge of Time - a) it was a rush job and b) Val Kilmer - a proper movie license has given the developer the chance to give Spidey a huge chunk of real estate to patrol. So how's the game shaping up?
There won't be any more Sega-published Marvel games.
Comic book legend Stan Lee is a playable character in forthcoming movie tie-in The Amazing Spider-Man.
Amazing Spider-Man launches on 29th June 2012 in Europe, Activision has announced.
