on June 6, 2011 12:30 PM

Publisher Actvision just released an E3 trailer and a handful of screenshots for the upcoming Spider-Man Edge of Time, a follow up to Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, which also dealt with wacky time travel antics. The game features veryone’s favorite webswinging hero Peter Parker and his 2099 counterpart Miguel O’Hara save each other across dimensions by stopping an evil 2099 scientist, and unlike Shattered Dimensions they are the only two Spider-man’s to be featured in this game. Eddie Brock’s current incarnation, Anti-Venom also plays a prominent role in the story, which for those unfamiliar with the somewhat convoluted Marvel mythos, is a combination Eddie’s white blood cells merging with the traces of Venom symbiote left in his system.

Penned by comic book writer Peter David, (X-Factor, Young Justice) the latest Spider-Man title is supposed to be have its “narratively-driven ’cause-and-effect’ moments, uniquely utilizing ‘picture-in-picture’ moments where the actions of one Spider-Man have immediate effects on the other Spider-Man and his surroundings.” Couldn’t have said it better myself. The game is developed by Beenox, a company that has been handling the Spider-Man video game franchise for a while now. Check after the break for the trailer and screenshots, which are developed by Beenox, the developer that has handeled Spider-Man for a while now.
