Beenox is getting to be an old hand at this whole "Spider-Man" thing. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be its fourth game starring the wallcrawler, so when the studio puts out a mission walkthrough trailer, the basics seem to be down.

A PS4 walkthrough posted on the PlayStation.Blog starts off by showing the new web-swinging mechanics, controlled with the left and right triggers to grip objects into the environment, then swings by Peter Parker's house to show his room as a mission hub. Creative director Thomas Wilson says they felt it was important to see the more human side of Peter. Then we enter a combat scenario, with a bunch of acrobatic flourishes and takedowns with wide-open environments to accommodate Spidey's style.

It's due on April 29, and pre-ordering gets you a set of four suits from his long comic history.

      This looks really good, looking forward to it, also coming to the PC which is nice.

      Doesn't look too bad but they definitely have some work to do with pop-up and temporal aliasing.

        Yeah, I was all excited for this, then I noticed that it was due in April... it looks great so far, but doesn't look like it's quite ready for April.
