Pre-Order The Amazing Spider-Man And Play As Stan Lee
The first pre-order bonuses for the upcoming movie tie-in game The Amazing Spider-Man have been unveiled, and despite the fact that the movie itself is looking increasingly like a redundant bore, these pre-order bonuses give the impression that the game is going to be a lot of fun.
First up, for those of you who pre-order from Amazon, you’ll be able to play as Spider-Man co-creator and ubiquitous Marvel spokesperson Stan Lee. Alas, it won’t be with a Stan Lee Skin useable during the entire game, but it’s almost as much fun. In a very meta DLC mission, you’ll control Stan who, having borrowed super powers from the webslinger, he’ll race around Manhattan collecting pages from a comic script. The DLC packet promises a special surprise at the end. I’m sure it will involve Stan Lee making some kind of tired reference to the silver age of comics and seeming befuddled, yet awesome.
Second, if you prefer the helpful, efficient service you get at GameStop, you can preorder there at get access to The Rhino Challenge. “Take control of the massive, genetically engineered villain RHINO and rampage around Manhattan in an exclusive gameplay challenge of pure destruction! As Rhino, players will be able to unleash his formidable powers to destroy anything and everything that gets in his way in a timed event full of speed, combo streaks, and of course, a ton of things to break!” Sounds good to me!
Both DLC packs will be available on Xbox, Playstation 3 and PC. Via All Games Beta.
