Spider-Man: Edge of Time Trailer Teases Time-Travelling Spiders

Peter Parker's life in the past is in the hands of Spider-Man 2099.

First, Activision and Beenox revealed the follow-up to last year's Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions. Now, we have the teaser trailer that gives a taste of the time-hopping antics the web-slingers may take part in.

Thankfully, the trailer outs some of the possible gameplay elements. Those of you hoping for another open-world game featuring Spidey might come away from the trailer disappointed as gameplay looks akin to the linear levels of Shattered Dimensions. Also, there are shots in the trailer that hint that you'll be switching between 2099 and Amazing mid-gameplay.

I may not be a knower of all things Spider-Man, but I still have a wide enough grasp of the Spider-Man mythos to know that the premise of Edge of Time makes little sense, as Amazing Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2099 both exist in entirely separate dimensions. So we may have a Spider-Man story that is less about time travel and more about inter-dimensional time wizards on our hands. Only time will tell.
