Spider-Man swings again! Well, maybe we should say Spider-MEN!

That's right, gamers, get ready to wipe the webbing off your consoles once again this fall with a brand new Spidey game featuring not one, not two, not three, but four versions of Spider-Man at your command! Slated for release in September 2010 and developed by Beenox, "Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions" gives players the chance to travel across four unique dimensions, harnessing the unique powers and abilities of each Spider-Man.

Here at Marvel we like to tease and tantalize, to show off just enough of the magic without giving away all our secrets. For this first look at "Shattered Dimensions," we're unveiling two of the four dimensions: "Amazing Spider-Man" and "Spider-Man Noir"!

Each dimension wraps players in a stunning visual presentation and engrossing gameworld pulled directly from the comics--but it doesn't end there. Gameplay also changes from dimension to dimension with new combat styles and abilities unfolding as you progress. The "Amazing Spider-Man" experience delivers innovative web-centric battles and visuals in a world that pays tribute to the classic era of the Webhead. In contrast, "Spider-Man Noir" features a cunning and covert depiction of Spider-Man, who utilizes shadows to perform stealth takedowns in a 1930's-influenced, black-and-white cinematic environment.

"Each action-packed universe will have its own detailed art design and thrilling missions, challenging gamers to use new skill sets to defeat enemies as they unlock powerful new moves and progress through the game," said Rob Kostich, Head of Marketing for Activision Publishing, Inc.

Awesome visual style? Check. A crazy-cool variety of gameplay options and experiences? You betcha. An original, epic and engrossing storyline to bring it all together? But of course!

Written by acclaimed Marvel Comics scribe--and hardcore gamer--Dan Slott (AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, MIGHTY AVENGERS), the story takes players on a mission to capture the magical energy of the Tablet of Order and Chaos, which has been shattered and scattered across parallel universes. Gamers must battle fan-favorite villains such as Kraven the Hunter and an all-new-created-just-for-the-game "Noir" version of Hammerhead, in a quest to restore the fabric of reality.

this game looks like its going to take spidey to a new level but marvel defiantly needs to span its video game universe with more characters like Thor or deadpool. Just thinking about it makes me happy

the game looks pretty cool, but it would be really cool to see a different super hero have there own video game like captain america. it'd be really intresting to have the marvel zombies universe.

YES! Spidey scores again! finally, yet another game to add to my collection! it looks so cool! I can't wait to see what new moves Spider-Man's gonna bust out in this one! A mix of Web of Shadows and Ultimate Spider-Man would be great, and it seems from that trailer they're trying to incorporate a sort stealth fighting style. Bring it on! I LOVE SPIDER-MAN!!!

I agree that Spider-Man 2099 is very likely, but I don't think Ultimate Spider-Man will be in it. I don't think Marvel will or should mix the two Universes together, even if it isn't canon. Fourth one, Spider-Ham!

I really want to see a GOOD Spidey game. This looks like another B+ game quickly thrown together by developers and licensed by Marvel for some fast cash. It's great that they're taking inspiration from the comics but look at the graphics. You shouldn't see weakness in the graphics in a TRAILER! With Arkham Asylum, DC raised the bar to a whole new level with super hero games. I hope one day Marvel will follow. We want a game with serious graphics, a mature, gritty story, and a new variety of gameplay. Marvel is a huge company. There's no reason we can't have a Marvel game at the calibur of Arkham Asylum or even God of War 3.

This game looks AMAZING ! I hope the gameplay in Spider-man: Noir is like Batman Arkham Asylum. It kinda looks like it with similar moves, setting and strategies.

Not that I mind but.... how the heck is spider man noir in a video game? There have only been like 7 issues with the character. He is essentially a very small character.

As someone who never has the perseverance to finish a game because I get bored (at the very latest) by the time I get to the boss, this looks like a sweet deal. 4 worlds all faithful in aesthetic and gameplay to the books, this could keep me interested long enough. And Hammerhead is clearly a good choice for a villain in the Noir universe. The authors probably decided not to use him in the first story arc because he was too obvious a "gangster era" villain. Spidey 2099 will be wicked too, the art for those books (if I recall) was dark and impressionistic. I just hope they don't do that 1602 crap, I couldn't even bring myself to open a torrented version.

:venom: I have all the other spiderman games and can say this one looks like a winner and will be adding it to my collection.I'm guessing the other dimension is spiderman 2099,ultimate spiderman,iron spiderman and maybe blk suit spiderman.I hope they will include differn't dimensions versions of venom and hobgoblin.The only thing i notice this far that sucks is adding hammerhead.Why add a lame villain to a fantastic looking game?

I'm guessin' 2099, for sure. After that, maybe Zombie, but I'd personally be pulling for Scarlet Spider (*realizes he's probably the only one who thinks this*). > Ry-Guy

Wow now thats what im talking about! Yea finally a spiderman game that isn't made off the movie which barely followed the original story line, this game looks like it has some really kick a.ss gameplay, and best of all it brings somone new to the table noir who also looks cool. I will definetly buy this game when it comes out.

I definitely call Spider-Man 2099 as one of the other profile. Its just makes so much sense. They could go with 1602 Spider-Man but I don't think they will. Though I hope they don't do ultimate spider-man, he's not really all that different from our spider-man. Sure he's a little younger but his powers are all the same. Can't wait to play this!!!

Wow!! That looks like awesome game play!! I'm definately going to buy this when it comes out. I bet the other two spider-men are the Ultimate Spider-Manand Spider-Man 2099. A possible third option could be Spider-Girl. Marvel probably wants us to think that there both spider-MEN instead of one of them being a Girl. I can't wait to hear more about this.
