Webhead fanatics looking forward to Activision’s upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man will want to take note of a number of new pre-order programs announced today. Gamers who put down some cash on a copy before its launch on June 26 will be able to access the Rhino Challenge (GameStop) or a special mission starring a playable Stan Lee (Amazon.com). Both extras are available for a limited time and only for the 360 and PS3 versions.
The Amazing Spider-Man is a sequel to the upcoming Sony film and will return to the open-world, free-roaming design from years past. Players will be able to see Peter Parker through his earliest days as Spider-Man, as he comes to terms with his new powers and battles some of the franchises’ most iconic villains. Written by Seamus Kevin Fahey (Spartacus: Gods of the Arena, re-imagined Battlestar Galactica), the game takes place immediately after the events in the upcoming reboot.
