Remember that Spider-Man game I blogged about earlier today? Yahoo Games reveals more details about it on their fancy Spider-Man:Web of Shadows page, including the storyline, guest appearances (like Luke Cage!) and the game engine, which provides the same kind of free-roaming environment fans came to love in the movie games:
Sorry, Tobey – Spider-Man: Web of Shadows isn’t based on the film franchise, it’s based on the web-slinging comic book legend himself, giving the developers at Shaba and Treyarch a great deal of leeway in crafting an entirely new plot. In a nutshell, New York has been invaded by something very bad, resulting in a cataclysmic event that has rocked city leaders to the point of declaring martial law. Other heroes are gathering uptown to protect civilians, while villains are grouping downtown to repel the aggressors. And Spidey? He has to sort it all out, of course.
