The Amazing Spider-Man Game Trailer Shows Off The New Scorpion

By Ishaan . June 6, 2012 . 9:00am

Beenox and Activision put out another trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man game this week, and this one shows us what the Scorpion looks like. As previously reported, this version of the Scorpion was created by Dr. Otto Octavius, by injecting human DNA into a scorpion, along with a bit of what sounds like the Venom symbiote, retrieved from an Oscorp satellite. Take a look at it below:



The Amazing Spider-Man will be released on June 26th.

    they showed this a while back

  • Man, Spider-Man is such a litterbug. I pity the folks who have to clean up his left-over webs.

    • XiaomuArisu

      His webs disolve after an hour.
      The more you know!

    Still hoping this is more akin to Spiderman 2 than the technical mess that was Spidy 3.  I bought Spidey 3 at launch and was thoroughly disappointed as a Spiderman fan (favorite Marvel character).

      Ultimate Spider-Man was teh best

    Not really sure if I like how they’ve essentially made Scorpion nothing more than a snarling beast- a scorpion made humanoid. The character has such a funny backstory that it seems like a waste to just make him a mindless monster.

      Yea, I’m not really liking that Scorpion is simply a monster. Or rather, a monster lacking any of the interest that came from Mac Gargan. Still, I do like the origin they’ve come up with for this version.

        I mean we see him for just a little bit… we don’t know if he’s a mindless monster or not! You have to admit, he just came out from an experiment that turned him into Scorpion so maybe he’s having a hard time controlling his new-found powers?

        Either way this is looking amazing! I’m glad I pre-order! Spider-Man 3 and Ultimate Spider-Man were the last Spider-Man games I’ve ever played! Didn’t play SP3 a lot, just a little… don’t know, didn’t hold mine interest long.

        But I love playing as Venom in USM!

        • Solomon_Kano

          True enough. This does look great though.

          I played Shattered Dimensions and that was enjoyable, but hopefully this can live up to USM. Spider-Man 2 might have set the standard for the series, but I felt that USM improved on its formula. Favorite open-world Spidey game. Playing as Venom was indeed awesome. If this turns out like SM3 though… that would be awful.

          • Christopher Nunes

            I don’t think we have to worry… I believe they wanted it to be like Spider-Man 2 as it set the standard as the best SM game to date and go beyond what Spider-Man 2 had to offer and more.

            I believe this Spider-Man will outshine Spider-Man 2 (I found out I have a Gamecube copy of it in my house! Never played it, but it looks a bit scratched up, but however it will still play!). This is shaping up at the best looking and best gameplay of the SM series yet!

          • Solomon_Kano

            If this manages to outshine Spider-Man 2, that would be great. We’ve had a few good Spidey games this gen, but no great ones. This has potential to be that.
