Playing the roles of the Amazing Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2099, Spider-Man: Edge of Time propels gamers on a high-octane, adrenaline-fueled adventure in which the heroic web-slingers must urgently work together across time to save each other and prevent a disaster that ultimately leads to the death of the Amazing Spider-Man. Against the backdrop of a rich, tightly crafted narrative by acclaimed Marvel veteran writer Peter David, the game features two individual timelines evolving in parallel, as well as "cause-and-effect" moments driven by the narrative. The game utilizes "picture-in-picture" moments where the actions of the Spider-Man in the present immediately affect the Spider-Man in the future and his surroundings.
- Save Spider-Man -- The timelines of the Amazing Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2099 begin to unravel as a mysterious and nefarious villain goes back in time to remake the world in his image and kill Peter Parker, resulting in a chaotic, dystopian version of the future. Fans will take on the roles of both the Amazing Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2099, who must overcome their differences and work together across time to prevent a disastrous new world order and save each other.
- Change the Future by Changing the Past -- Story-driven "cause-and-effect" moments make their debut in the Spider-Man videogame franchise. Utilizing exciting "picture-in-picture" visuals to enhance interactions between the Amazing Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2099, players will be able to see the immediate effects of one Spider-Man’s actions on the other’s timeline with expected – and sometimes unexpected – results.
- Race Against Time in an Epic Adventure -- Backed by a rich, complex story penned by veteran Marvel writer Peter David (co-creator of Spider-Man 2099), players will experience a thrilling, action-packed adventure with a deep story detailing the adventures of two similar, but uniquely different super heroes across a time-span of nearly a century.
- Harness the Unique Abilities of Each Spider-Man -- The combat abilities have been refined for the Amazing Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2099 to really highlight the distinct fighting styles of each character, including a new Hyper-Sense mode for the fast and acrobatic Amazing Spider-Man and an Accelerated Decoy capability for the technologically advanced Spider-Man 2099.
