Comics fans can enjoy reading complete issues of Marvel comics in The Amazing Spider-Man, including some which are quite tricky to obtain otherwise.
“For the first time ever Marvel has allowed us to put full comic book issues in the game,” Beenox studio head Dee Brown told Ausgamers.
“So you’re gong to see comic book pages flying in the city or lying on the floor, you’re going to see that is actually ridiculously addictive and you’ll want to collect them all. And as you collect a certain number you unlock full issues.
“So for example Amazing Fantasy number 15, the first appearance of Spidey is in there. And we’ve implemented a comic book reader, but not in a cheap way; it’s actually a very cool comic book reader that fits your TV, and you can move from one pane to the next really well.”
Collecting the comic pages is just one of a number of side-missions players can check out in The Amazing Spider-man’s open world.
“Manhattan is where you get this free roaming experience. We’re opening it to you, but Manhattan actually progresses with the story,”
“Obviously more side-missions unlock as you move on in the story, but we’re giving you some unique stuff like an apartment that you can visit if you want to. We’re giving you a camera so you can take photos of stuff and there are missions that involve your camera, such as uncovering a conspiracy with a reporter. But you can also take photos of whatever you want and store them in your digital album.”
The Amazing Spider-Man is due on practically every platform in conjunction with the film’s June release.
