The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is a 2014 video game developed by Beenox and published by Activision.

It was released on many consoles including PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and PC on April 29, 2014 in North America. It was released on May 2, 2014 in Europe, and April 30, 2014 in Australia.  

The Xbox One version was going to be delayed, but was released alongside the other platforms digitally while the release of physical copies was delayed by two weeks.

It was unveiled during the 2013 New York Comic Con.

Plot

The game begins with Peter having a flashback to the night Uncle Ben was killed. He has a flashback of him fleeing a deli drinking a bottle of chocolate milk when a burglar raids a store. The cashier asks for Peters help but Peter says "It's not my problem" and walks away.  He begins walking home when he hears someone cry for help and a gunshot sounds off.  Peter investigates and to his horror discovers Uncle Ben lying on the ground bleeding, where he eventually dies.

Skipping ahead, Spider-Man is out on patrol now searching for the killer.  After being attacked by a gang, Spider-Man manages to make the ringleader tell him where he got his weapons.  He reveals he got them from Herman Schultz.  He heads to the construction site downtown and defeats Herman Schultz men, and almost has Schultz until he manages to escape. Frustrated at losing Schultz, Peter then follows a lead on Dennis Carradine, who is suspected to be the man who killed Uncle Ben. He tracks Carradine using the city's radio transmissions.

Gameplay

The game will take place in a larger Manhattan and new upgrades and combat. Beenox has said that the webs will stick to buildings. The game uses morality in a system called "Hero or Menace" (similar to the Infamous video game series) where players are rewarded for stopping crime but punished for failing to keep it up or ignoring them. There will be a new up-close-and-personal combat abilities. The web swinging has also been changed. Players are given the opportunity to play as Peter Parker to progress the game (although not in free roam), giving him a larger role to play.
