PlotEdit

The game begins with Peter Parker having a flashback of him drinking a bottle of chocolate milk when a burglar raids a store. The cashier asks for Peter's help but Peter says "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 two years later, Spider-Man is out on patrol now searching for the killer.  After being attacked by a gang thanks to Felicia Hardy (whom he locked up in the previous game, Spider-Man manages to make the ringleader tell him where he got his weapons. He reveals he got them from Herman Schultz, and that they're arming up for an upcoming gang war between them and the Russians. Spidey heads to the construction site downtown and defeats Schultz's men, and almost has Schultz until he manages to escape. Frustrated, 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 and after finding him selling guns to a thug, Spider-Man webs up the thug, and saves a hostage from Carradine's henchmen in a car chase, only to discover him dead after finding him in a alley, with the killer's signature written in blood on the left wall reading "CK". He then takes a picture of the initials and alerts the police about it.

Making it back home, Peter watches the news about the murder with Aunt May, and the two learn that Carradine's killer was dubbed "The Carnage Killer" by the media. Peter then tells May that while he's glad that Carradine got what he deserved, he starts feeling bad for him, so he decides to pursue the killer himself. However, he notices that Schultz's gang and the Russians had raided Oscorp to steal weapons, and rushing to the building, Spidey defeats many of them and meets an electrical engineer named Max Dillon. Working together, Dillon gets Spidey to the advanced technology room to activate the coolant systems to prevent the generator from overheating and exploding, while he gets the hostages out of the building through Stairwell C. After defeating both gangs and locking the tech away, Peter confronts Schultz who says he just needed an equalizer and uses Oscorp's Seismic Harness Construction Resource (Aka the Shocker) to fight him in a closed off room in, but loses and is forced to tell the police everything he knows about the gang war, but when he says it won't do any good, Spidey webs him up and steals the harness's kinetic energy to outfit his needs.

Meanwhile, Peter's childhood friend, Harry Osborn holds a conference with Wilson Fisk regarding a new police force named "The Task Force" which was made to keep criminals and Spider-Man at bay. However, Fisk reveals that he wants to take Oscorp from Harry, and he"ll just have to wait until Harry dies from the illness that killed his father, Norman...

Meanwhile, Spidey (who distrusts the Task Force) goes to stop a crime at Central Park, and discovers that someone named Sergei Kravinoff AKA Kraven th Hunter, has been following him, and meets him in person. Taking a interest in him, Spidey visits him in his apartment as Peter Parker, and discovers that Kraven had killed all the Cross-Species that he fought in the previous game. Returning home, Peter tries to call Whitney Chang, only to realize that Felicia Hardy AKA Black Cat (who attacked him at the beginning of the game) on the other end, and after a heated argument, Peter tells Felicia that he's too busy to fool around with her.

Afterwards, Spidey and Kraven decide to pursue the Carnage Killer together and find that the Russians have stolen Oscorp technology and took it to the sewers. Retrieving the technology, Spidey discovers that some of the Russians are disguising themselves as waiters to kill Fisk at a fundraiser party. Going there, Peter meets up with Harry and pursues the Russians, easily defeating them, and makes it back to the party where he discovers a disguised Felicia who escapes before he can do anything. Afterwards, Fisk at the fundraiser arrives and he and Peter start arguing over Fisk's hatred of Spider-Man, the Carnage Killer, and the Task Force gathering intelligence on criminals. After learning the Russians are smuggling guns into the city, Peter leaves and goes to the docks to stop them. He also meets a man the Russians wrongly believed to be the Carnage Killer.

Afterwards, Spider-Man and Kraven find that the Carnage Killer is a man named Cletus Kasady who is about to murder a kid. Ignoring Kraven's advice, Spidey jumps in and defeats Kasady, much to Kraven's anger and he reveals he's trying to bring Spidey to kill, thus ending their partnership. Kasady ends up incarcerated in The Ravencroft Institute for the Criminally Insane, where he meets Donald Menken, and is injected by a symbiote that was meant to cure Norman Osborn.

Meanwhile, Spidey is still seen as a menace, and is told by Whitney that another crime boss named "The Kingpin" has taken over the criminal underworld. After helping the police get a van to it's destination, Spidey heads to the museum to stop a robbery, where he confronts Felicia. After defeating her, she reveals she underwent experiments at Ravencroft to give her super-speed and that Kingpin had hired her to kill Spidey, and if she didn't do it, she would die. Spidey offers to get her a new life safe from him and that someday, they'll would meet each other as normal people, but Felicia refuses and flees, but not before revealing that Fisk IS the Kingpin.

The next day, Peter goes to Harry's apartment to discuss about Fisk being crooked, and Harry reveals his illness and that he needs Spider-Man's blood for survival. Worrying about how it would end up, Peter visits him as Spider-Man and tells him that he can't give his blood yet, but Harry loses his patience and decides to cure himself his own way. Annoyed, Spidey realizes that Kraven was distracting him from Harry and that Fisk hired him to lead Spidey to eliminate Fisk's rivals. Angry, Spidey attempts to interrogate him in his loft only to be tranquilized and taken to Central Park to fight Kraven. After winning, Spidey orders Kraven to go back to Russia and webs him up on a tree.

Afterwards, Spidey hides in a Fisk Industries delivery truck and and defeats Fisk's Task Force lieutenats and Fisk himself, only for the power in the entire city to be cut off by a man with electricity powers wreaking havoc. Rushing back to Manhattan, Spidey discovers that the same man is Max Dillon. Apparently, Max fell into a generator where he gained electric powers. Unfortunately, he was incarcerated in Ravencroft where he began to hate Spidey, blaming him for his pain. After numerous experiments, he escaped and wanted to make people feel the misery and darkness he felt his whole life. After being defeated, Max explodes and seemingly dies. Feeling bad for him, Spidey decides to shut Ravencroft down. Meanwhile, Harry starts sulking over how much time he has left to live, and angrily takes a sample of Richard Parker's spider venom.

Back at Times Square, Spidey learns that members of the Task Force are installing bombs around the city, and goes to stop them. He then discovers Oscorp is under attack again and defeats several Task Force members wielding gliders. He also discovers that a crazed Harry was the one who caused everything, and explains to Peter that after he kills him, he'll analyze his corpse and cure his disease, as well as replace him as Spider-Man. After a heated fight, Harry accidentally stabs himself with his own glider and nearly dies, and an angry Spidey tells his former friend to answer for his mistakes and do whatever he can to make up to them, and walks away, while saying that the greatest man he ever knew taught him that.

Afterwards, Spidey learns that Ravencroft is under attack, and rushing there, he discovers that Kasady had escaped and freed all the inmates, infecting them with his symbiote to turns them into his minions, in a plan to spread them over Manhattan and make a faily of his own . After saving Donald Menken, Spidey orders him to go to a hospital and tell the police everything, and if he doesn't, he'll come back for him. After fighting off several symbiotic inmates, Spidey confronts Kasady (now Carnage) and defeats him and puts him back in his cell.

Still feeling bad over Uncle Ben's death, Peter goes to meet Stan (who Spidey just saved at the beginning of the game) at the Comic Stand, where Stan convinces him to continuing to fight against Kingpin's schemes. With his willpower back, Peter leaves the Comic Stand and swings off to save the day again

In a post-credits scene, Kingpin tells the mayor that he'll continue to finance the Task Force without Harry. Menken then shows up and reveals himself to be the Chameleon in disguise. He then asks Fisk what to do and Fisk says that "now, the real work begins".

GameplayEdit

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.
