It’s been a while since we got a decent web-slinging game, but Beenox’s upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man looks poised to break that trend. This brand new developer diary offers a fairly brief look at the title, but should be enough to get your blood pumping.

The open-world navigation looks absolutely fantastic, and brings back fond memories of the excellent Spider-Man 2 on PS2. Even the combat looks great – though it’s obviously been heavily inspired by Batman: Arkham City.

Activision’s put out some pretty shoddy licensed titles over the last couple of months, but this looks genuinely exciting. Are you planning on picking it up?
