Prototype 2 screens and info for you..


The sequel to Radical Entertainment’s best-selling open-world game of 2009, PROTOTYPE® 2 takes the unsurpassed carnage of the original PROTOTYPEand 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!

14 months have passed since New York became a disease-ridden war zone, and the man responsible for it all – Alex Mercer – has become a ghost, a bogeyman whose shadow looms over the city. You are Sgt. James Heller – veteran soldier whose life was destroyed by Mercer’s release of the Blacklight virus. With his wife and daughter casualties of the outbreak, Heller now serves in the military effort to keep the virus from spilling over beyond NYZ. Repeatedly volunteering for the most dangerous, near suicidal missions into the heart of the city’s Red Zone, Heller is hoping to die and take as many Infected with him as he can in the process. Heller’s last mission sees his entire unit massacred by a swarm of Infected, leaving him the sole survivor and putting him face-to-face with the shadowy hooded figure overseeing the ambush from a nearby rooftop – Alex Mercer – the man responsible for destroying his family, his city…his life.

Fueled by rage, Heller attacks but is clearly no match for Mercer’s abilities. Impressed by Heller’s implausible survival of the Infected onslaught, Mercer sees Heller as a potentially valuable asset for his grand plan and infects him with the virus, making Heller hisprototype.

Welcome to NYZ…it’s time to murder your maker!


· IT’S HELLER VS. MERCER! Alex Mercer made a grave mistake when he decided to infect Sgt. James Heller with the Blacklight virus – he never counted on Heller interfering with his plans. PROTOTYPE 2features a fresh narrative following the game’s new, iconic main character, Sgt. James Heller. Gamers will experience Heller thriving with his new shape-shifting abilities as they go head-to-head with Mercer and delve deeper into the game’s story, uncovering a secret that will rock Heller to his core.

· SHAPE-SHIFTING EVOLVED – Players will love experimenting with Heller’s newfound powers and abilities as they tear through NYZ, battling and evading elite military soldiers and vehicles on the ground and in the air, and hunting down and consuming key targets to obtain information and dive even deeper into the game’s story. Juggling between multiple shape-shifting weapons on the fly, like the all-new trauma-inducing Tendrils, the razor sharp Claws or Blade Arm, and blunt and devastating Hammer and Whip Fists (to name a few), players will wreak havoc on their victims and the hordes of Infected abominations roaming the city streets in a visceral celebration of blood, guts and dismemberment.

· WELCOME TO NYZ! – The New York that humanity has come to know and love over the years no longer exists…it’s now simply referred to as NYZ. As Radical’s all-new vision for post-viral open-world New York, NYZ has been re-designed from the ground up to enhance PROTOTYPE 2’s signature action-packed sandbox-style gameplay, and as a mechanism to tell the game’s core narrative and side story missions. As Heller, players will progress through NYZ’s three distinct zones, from the heavily guarded militarized Green Zone, to the converted refugee and triage shanty town camps of the industrial Yellow Zone, all the way to the Red Zone – where the virus has completely overrun the city’s shattered skyscrapers and population with infection and the risk of death at every corner.

· MAKE HELLER YOUR PROTOTYPE – In PROTOTYPE 2 players can unlock new viral abilities, upgrade, and create unique power sets for Heller throughout the game’s main and side story missions. By exploring all that NYZ’s vast, open-world has to offer, savvy players may stumble upon Infected Lairs hidden throughout the city, and will be rewarded with genetic upgrades for Heller upon surviving the horrors found inside. Additionally, by gaining access to the Blackwatch’s encrypted computer network – Blacknet – information regarding key targets associated with top-secret military projects throughout the city will be revealed. Using Heller’s unique hunting ability, players can track down and consume these targets to obtain dozens of interchangeable mutations to mix and match. With so many potential viral load outs, players can customize Heller’s power set to their liking, making him their prototype!

· DEVELOPER PEDIGREE – With almost 20 years experience creating amazing video games and over 30 million units to its credit, Radical Entertainment is the studio behind PROTOTYPE 2. The developer’s portfolio features a wide catalog of successful titles, including 2009’s original, acclaimed, best-selling open-world game PROTOTYPE – selling over two million units alone, the highly acclaimed The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction, Simpsons Hit & Run and Scarface: The World is Yours. PROTOTYPE 2 is built from the ground up using Radical Entertainment’s latest proprietary game engine, Titanium 2, to deliver face-melting visuals and ridiculously action-packed, over-the-top open-world gameplay.
