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).
