Activision has confirmed that ‘Prototype 2’ will be in stores on April 23, 2012. The game will be showcased at Comic-Con (Activision booth #5445) this week. For those of you that were not able to attend, you can view part one of a three part trailer online at prototypegame.com.
The sequel to the best-selling open-world action game of 2009, ‘Prototype 2’ takes the unsurpassed carnage of the original ‘Prototype’ and continues the experience of becoming the ultimate shape-shifting weapon. As the game’s all-new infected protagonist, Sgt. James Heller, players will cut a bloody swathe through the wastelands of post-viral New York Zero (or more simply…NYZ) with unparalleled locomotion, building up a vast genetic arsenal of deadly, biological weapons and abilities as they hunt, kill and consume their way toward the ultimate goal – to kill…Alex…Mercer!
“We know our fans have been clamoring to find out when they would be able to get their hands-on Prototype 2, and the whole studio is excited that we can finally reveal the timing,” said Ken Rosman, Studio Head, Radical Entertainment. “We’re also thrilled to be at the point where we can show the game directly to our fans. It’s always rewarding to see those first time reactions to what we’ve been working on for the past couple years, and we can’t wait for them to see some of Sgt. James Heller’s amazing new shape-shifting abilities at San Diego Comic-Con.”
‘Prototype 2’ will be available for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
