PlayStation Vita owners may be forced to make do with an overdue port of the original The Amazing Spider-Man, but that’s not stopping Activision from lining up The Amazing Spider-Man 2 for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. Due out next spring, the Beenox developed open world adventure aims to build upon the events of the original game with an alternate take on the upcoming movie.

As with its predecessor, you’ll be free to swing through an improved Manhattan city skyline. One new feature includes the ‘Hero or Menace’ system, which sounds a lot like an inFAMOUS-esque morality mechanic emphasising the decisions that you make. According to the developer, the combat has also been refined.

There’s a teaser trailer embedded below, but it looks more Average Spider-Man than Amazing Spider-Man to us. Hopefully the developer will be given the resources that it needs to polish things up before release, because its predecessor showed plenty of promise, even if it did get tangled up in its own ambition at times.
