An epilogue to the film of the same name (due to 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).

The game is due out for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, 3DS, DS, and Wii.

The game is in development at Activision's Quebec City studio, Beenox. No stranger to Marvel's iconic superhero, the studio began working with the wallcrawler for the 2005 PC port of Ultimate Spider-Man and took over primary development duties for the comic-based games with 2010's Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions. Its most recent outing with the hero was October's Spider-Man: Edge of Time.
