Newest webhead game coming to Windows machines six weeks after console and portable debut; will be available on Steam with achievements.
Activision's The Amazing Spider-Man launched on consoles and portable devices on Tuesday, but its PC version won't be out until August. Activision has confirmed that the newest Beenox-developed webhead game will ship for the PC on August 10.
The game will be available on Valve's digital distribution platform Steam, where it will support Steam Achievements, according to an update on Activision's Hero HQ online information portal.
An epilogue to the film of the same name (due in theaters on July 3), The Amazing Spider-Man will allow players to freely explore Manhattan as the friendly neighborhood superhero and thwart the sinister plans of "a variety of criminals" in a story penned by Seamus Kevin Fahey (Battlestar Galactica).

It seems like all of a sudden it was cancelled (or at least delayed) for some reason.... Link: http://www.overclock.net/t/1292784/gh-the-amazing-spider-man-released-for-pc-in-uk
I was thinking noon today like usual Steam games...unless they do release games at 11pm sometimes. If they do that, I wasn't aware of it till now! :) Anyhow, I hope you are right!
This game reminds me alot of the spiderman game that was on the ps2. And i really really had a huge addiction for it due to all the upgrade's n stuff. Swinging around at really fast speed's. Seeing how high you could web yourself from a web swing was awesome :P Ill be buying this game for sure.
more than a couple hrs in --- so far this is a good game. It's basically Arkham Asylum/City but without the finishing polish of those games ie the level/character design isnt as good -- I absolutely LOVE swinging through Manhattan...this game is a nice first step...the next one should be the good one -- Spider-Man fits perfectly in the GTA world.
If you liked Arkham you may like this game
if you like Spider-Man you will love this game
Its Ironic because all these games are designed using PC's, then transferred to other consoles. On release, they come out on other consoles long before the PC's and when it finally comes out (and thats if it ever come out), the magic is gone.
@pozium They want people to buy it on consoles rather than pirate it on pc. So if consoles come out first the impatient people will just buy it rather than wait for a pc version to pirate, that untill now didn't have a release date.
I know right. the console players always seem to accuse us of acting like a master race yet they are the ones getting early games half the time.
we get late and quite often crappy ports with no AA, bad controls and texture pop ins.
@Sgthombre Master race? Lmao. Calm down. You're giving us PC gamers a bad name. :P
@Sgthombre lol yeah but....is the amazing spiderman, or any movie tie-ins really worth the wait??
@zulwalks spiderman 2 was amazingas long as they have gone closer to that game then it will be amazing toobought my game for PS3 today
@zulwalks The game is good. So yeah. I waited for Max Payne 3. Waiting for this won't kill me. Also some movie tie ins are worth it. Xmen Origins Wolverine was awesome.
Enjoy it! It's fantastic fun, must've spent 80% of my play time so far just swinging around the city doing sweet F.A!
@residude thats what I always did playing spiderman 2.....just swing around......played 2 hrs a day, everyday......never even finished the game
Will buy it in a year during the next Steam summer sale. Hope it has controller support, I feel this type of game is meant to be played with one.
The only reason for the delay, which we all already know to be true, is because they know some portion of PC players will simply pirate the game and there's no way for them to stop it. To combat what they see as "lost sales" they purposefully hold back the PC version so they get more sales on the console versions. Of course the console versions can be pirated as well, but usually you need a "modded" console to play pirated console games and a lot of people don't want to make their console illegal (unusable on the internet mostly) by modding it to play ripped games.
Reminds me a bit of prototype without the kickass powers.
Speaking of which, is that out for PC yet? Did i miss the boat 'cause me wants.
Six weeks to un-consolize it. Yeah, I'll skip it and spend $60 on the Steam Summer Sale coming up shortly.
I've been sorely disappointed by so many SpiderMan games, I'm not even going to give this one a chance to hurt me. I've learned my lesson.
@RiP_ili As far as a superhero game: it's good.
As far as a video-game-to-movie adaptation: it's great.
As far as a Spiderman game: it's amazing.
As far as an independent game: it's good,but nothing spectacular.
@RiP_ili Wait no, hold on. Don't get on that plane. I actually tried this at my store. It's actually damn fun. Not as polished as Spider-Man 2, but really not as bad as Spider-man 3. It was a heck of a good time. I would say at least try it some where.
