If you’re a fan of all things Spider-Man you are well aware of two facts: we are nearing the release of Beenox’s sophomore effort, Spider-Man: Edge of Time, and the debut of Peter Parker replacement Miles Morales in Ultimate Comics Fallout #4. In an attempt to capitalize on enthusiasm for both of these marquee events in the life of the web-slinger, Activision is allowing gamers to don the Ultimate Comics universe spider suit in Edge of Time.
While gamers will still be playing as Spider-Man 2099 and Amazing Spider-Man in Edge of Time, there are sure to be a ton of different costume variations, like this one from the Ultimate Comics universe, available. Last year’s Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions featured a ton of different costumes, including a couple that imbued Spidey with extra abilities.
This Ultimate Comics costume isn’t so lucky, but it does give gamers who are reading through the first issue featuring Morales a closer look at the finer points of his suit’s design. And, to make the deal even sweeter, Activision has sent over some screenshots of the Ultimate Comics costume, which you can check out below:
This Ultimate Comics Universe costume has not been announced as a pre-order bonus so gamers can expect it will be a game unlock, perhaps for completing a side mission or set of challenges.
As of late there has been a tremendous focus on the characters of Spider-Man: Edge of Time including the voices of Spider-Man 2099 and Walker Sloan (Val Kilmer). That’s all well and good, but gamers are more focused on the different variations of Spider-Man they will be able to play as.
While Amazing and 2099 are the protagonists of this time-bending adventure, we can’t imagine Beenox wouldn’t throw in some nods to Shattered Dimensions and Spider-Man’s past through these same types of costume unlocks.
Head out and pick up your copy of Ultimate Comics Fallout #4 today, and then prepare to don Miles Morales’ costume in Spider-Man: Edge of Time.
