Activision has announced The Amazing Spider-Man for a Summer 2012 launch.

Developed by Beenox, the same studio behind recent Spidey games Shattered Dimensions and this year's Edge of Time, it will tie-in with the forthcoming movie of the same name.

However, it won't directly follow the film's plot, instead picking up immediately after its conclusion.

The game sees the return of free-roaming web-slinging around Manhattan and "evolutionary improvements to navigation and combat".

The announcement also mentions a new Web Rush mechanic, but doesn't detail exactly what that entails. Similarly, no word yet on which platforms the game will release on.

A trailer for the game is set to debut at the Spike VGA event this Saturday.
