Xbox One Games

This game was supposed to be indefinitely delayed. That was until Microsoft released the digital version in North America today. It will be interesting to see if the game is released in other regions later this week or if they rectify their mistake by then.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Size: 9.89 GB
Price: US$59.99 / £49.99 / €59.99

Villains from the film and classic Marvel characters are woven together in a twisted web of adrenaline-fueled, web-slinging action that puts players on a collision course with an evil far beyond Spider-Man’s reckoning. • Play as Peter Parker for the first time ever in The Amazing Spider-Man game series. • Battle all-new villains from both the movie and Spider-Man universes. • New web-swing mechanic includes expanded web-shooter capabilities and chemical properties that allow you to freeze and blow up items on impact. • Explore a more expansive Manhattan cityscape than the previous Amazing Spider-Man. • New “Hero or Menace” system rewards you for acting as Spider-Man by stopping crime and saving citizens. • New abilities and expanded fast-paced, acrobatic combat moves bring players up close and personal.
