Fans will witness the Amazing Spider-Man's death in Spider-Man: Edge of Time, the latest game from Beenox Studio, who were the developers of Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions.
This focused, action-packed adventure is reported to have a plot revolving around two time-lines and unfolds like this: Time rift has been opened between 2011 and 2099 by a scientist named Walker Sloan. Anti-Venom is sent to Spider-Man to rip him off his radio-activity, which eventually causes Spider-Man's death. Sloan, a rival of Miguel O'Hara (Spider-Man 2099) travels back in time to start the Alpha Max corporation 100 years before it was actually formed. In the alternate time line it creates, Peter Parker, though still Spider-Man, is not the Peter Parker we know and love. He's working for Alpha Max when he's contacted by O'Hara, who reveals that this is the wrong time line and will result in Spider-Man's death. They have to work together to change it all back.
The game features all-new 'cause-and-effect' gameplay, where players will have a fair share of on the edge gaming, with their actions having spontaneous effects one Spider-Man switching the timeline of the other Spider-Man. Gamers can play as both Amazing and 2099, and will communicate back and forth with a picture in picture display, says a review posted on the web.
Walker Sloan is the first Marvel character created by the video game writer, Peter David in fifteen years, who is also the co-creator of the comic book series Spider-Man 2099.
Cast include Josh Keaton as Spider-Man and Christopher Daniel Barnes as Spider-Man 2099. Keaton had previously voiced Spider-Man in The Spectacular Spider-Man, Marvel Super Hero Squad: The Video Game, Marvel Super Hero Squad: The Infinity Gauntlet and Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds as well as Ultimate Spider-Man in Shattered Dimensions. Barnes previously played Spider-Man in Spider-Man: The Animated Series and Spider-Man Noir in Shattered Dimensions.
