‘Spider-Man: Web of Shadows’ Leaked, Then Confirmed
Oopsey! Activision was probably waiting for their New York Comic Con panel this weekend to announce this, but retailer Gamestop accidentally released some advertising materials for a new Spider-Man videogame called Spider-Man: Web of Shadows. The ad listed a website (currently inactive) for customers to vote on what promo they would like if they pre-order the game.
At first, not much was known about the game. The rumor mill had been gossiping for a while about a game called Spider-Man: Red Vs. Black. But then IGN got confirmation from Activision on what the game was about. A free-roaming game with a emphasis on vertical combat — that means "swinging web fights" to the rest of us. It will be released for pretty much any system that games are still being made for. They even released a trailer shown below.
Stay tuned to ComicMix this weekend where we’ll be sure to followup with Activision… and to see if Spidey could battle Video-Man, the arcade monster Electro created in Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends.
