Stan Lee Only Available In The Amazing Spider-Man For Xbox 360 And PS3


Earlier this week, reports revealed that Spider-Man co-creator, Stan Lee, would be playable in the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man game, if you pre-ordered the game from Amazon. This morning, Activision made pre-order details a little clearer.


Stan Lee will only be available in the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game. If you pre-order either version of the game from Amazon, you’ll get to play as Lee, who will borrow some of Spider-Man’s abilities as he hunts for the pages of his latest script around Manhattan. Additionally, completing the mission will yield some sort of a “surprise” in connection with Spider-Man’s 50th anniversary.



The Stan Lee pre-order bonus will be in limited supply.


Meanwhile, ordering the game from GameStop will let you play as the Rhino, one of the villains in the game. This will be in the form of a timed mission of some sort, and will again be exclusive to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game. This pre-order bonus, too, will be in limited supply, Activision say.


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