GameStop slings pre-order costumes for Spider-Man: Edge of Time, X-Men: Destiny

If you’re planning to buy the upcoming Marvel video games Spider-Man: Edge of Time or X-Men: Destiny, you may want to consider pre-ordering them from GameStop if you have an affinity for the Slingers or Havok.

The in-game Havok suit, according to Marvel.com, will allow X-Men: Destiny players to not only dress up their mutant in Alex Summers’ suit, but also allow them to “equip the exclusive Havok X-gene to their mutant of choice, granting them plasma-based power enhancements to their attacks, the ability to stun enemies through energy absorption and increase their damage output over time!”

And in Spider-Man: Edge of Time, the GameStop bonus gives you access to four different costumes for Spider-Man — those used by Peter Parker during the “Identity Crisis” storyline circa the late 1990s. Since Spider-Man was wanted for murder, Parker started using four other secret identities that he abandoned after clearing his name — Hornet, Prodigy, Ricochet and Dusk. The costumes were eventually claimed by four young heroes who took up crime fighting.

Per Marvel.com, players “will be able to take full advantage of the four exclusive suits from this storyline–Dusk, Prodigy, Ricochet and Hornet–which will give our web-slinger increases in health, damage, health regeneration or shield regeneration.”

Check out closer looks at all the suits after the jump.
