Activision Publishing and Marvel Entertainment have released the first details of Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, the video game scheduled for release in September.

For a trailer for the game, CLICK HERE.

The game will allow players to travel through four different worlds as distinctly different versions of Spider-Man from four universes across Marvel lore, two of which were announced on Wednesday: The Amazing Spider-Man and Spider-Man Noir.

The Amazing Spider-Man experience delivers innovative web combat and visuals in a world that pays tribute to the classic era of the character. In contrast, Spider-Man Noir features a cunning and covert depiction of Spider-Man, who utilizes shadows to perform stealth takedowns in a 1930's-influenced, black-and-white cinematic environment.

"Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions delivers an original storyline that bridges four unique worlds," said Rob Kostich, Head of Marketing, Activision Publishing, Inc. "Each action-packed universe will have its own detailed art design and thrilling missions, challenging gamers to use new skill sets to defeat enemies as they unlock powerful new moves and progress through the game."

The game's story, written by Dan Slott, takes players on a mission to capture the magical energy of the Tablet of Order and Chaos, which has been shattered and scattered across parallel universes. Gamers are challenged to battle villains such as the lethal Kraven and a custom, never-before-seen Noir version of Hammerhead, in a quest to restore the fabric of reality.

Syfy has provided The Continuum a new image of Ryan Carnes as The Phantom from the upcoming special.

The four-hour event is scheduled to air in June on Syfy.

Here's how the network describes the project:

"Ryan Carnes stars as The Phantom and his alter ego Chris Walker in this re-imagined version of the classic comic strip transported to present day. A favorite costumed hero for more than six decades, The Phantom relies on his wits, physical strength and skill with weapons instead of superhuman powers. Isabella Rossellini guest stars in a villainous turn as Lithia, the head of an experimental mind control program. Also starring are Cameron Goodman as Chris Walker's love interest, Renny, and Sandrine Holt as The Phantom's trusted advisor Guran."
