4:30-5:30 Activision Spider-Man— Marvel, Activision, and acclaimed developer Beenox are headed to WonderCon with all-new Spider-Man videogame content! First, take a tour with Beenox down memory lane of the award-winning Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, and discuss their post-launch reactions and what key learnings from the fans they are applying to future games. Next, be the first to check out exclusive details, screenshots and videos of the next Spider-Man game, with game development talent from Beenox, acclaimed Marvel writer Peter David (co-creator of Spider-Man 2099), voiceover talent Josh Keaton (voice of Spider-Man in The Spectacular Spider-Manand Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions) and Marvel’s VP of games production, TQ Jefferson.

A new Spider-Man game isn’t surprising at all, but finding out what Beenox learnt from Shattered Dimensions and how they plan to apply this knowledge to the next game sounds interesting.
