Yes, that’s a horrible headline, but it gets across that there’s a new trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and it introduces The Kingpin. Who looks less “giant and menacing” and more “old and wobbly” here, but I suppose he’s always been a bit of a one for giving false impressions with his appearance.
The trailer is described as an “in-game story trailer”, although honestly, it spends more time showing dramatic slow-motion combat than story. It looks like it’s all in-game, though, so that’s something! And it shows off plenty more than The Kingpin, too: you’ve got Black Cat, Electro, one of the Goblins, Kraven, and probably more that I’ve forgotten.
I’m not entirely convinced that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be any good – the last decent Spider-Man game was 2004’s Spider-Man 2, and this game’s direct predecessor The Amazing Spider-Man was bloody awful – but I am hopeful. It’d be nice to have a really solid game starring everybody’s favourite web-head again.
Not long to wait, anyway. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is due out alongside the film on 2 May.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
