Get ready to sling that web as Spidey returns.

ACTIVISION are setting out to prove that their Spider-Man games can actually be quite good, and what they've revealed so far about the upcoming Shattered Dimensions is looking very promising indeed.

Shattered Dimensions takes place in four different Spider-Man universes, seen in the Marvel comics. So far the first two have been revealed as The Amazing Spider-Man and Spider-Man Noir.

The game will give you control of four different versions of the web slinger on his "mission to capture the magical energy of the Tablet of Order and Chaos, which has been shattered and scattered across parallel universes".

The game play will also vary to suit the dimension Spidey is in.

The Amazing Spider-Man will present the hero in the classic form created by Steve Ditko.

"The Amazing Spider-Man experience delivers innovative web combat and visuals in a world that pays tribute to the classic era of the legendary Super Hero," says Activision.

Spider-Man Noir will take place in a black-and-white, 1930s setting that takes its cue from last year's Marvel Noir comics and features splinter Cell-style stealth action.

"In contrast, Spider-Man Noir features a cunning and covert depiction of Spider-Man, who utilizes shadows to perform stealth takedowns in a 1930s-influenced, black-and-white cinematic environment," goes the blurb.

Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, developed by Quebec City studio Beenox and written by Marvel comic writer Dan Slott, is scheduled for a September release.

It's time to get excited.
