One of our favorite games from last year was the zombie infested open world game, Prototype. As always, you just can’t keep a good ghoul down as Activision has officially announced a sequel and even provided a trailer to whet your monstrous appetite.
From the Press Release
Activision Publishing, Inc. confirmed today that PROTOTYPE® 2, the sequel to Radical Entertainment’s original best-selling game of 2009 – PROTOTYPE – is currently in development for 2012. PROTOTYPE 2’s first official trailer was revealed as a world premiere during this past weekend’s Spike TV Video Game Awards 2010 show, where fans of the shape-shifting open-world action franchise got their first glimpse into Sgt. James Heller, and why he is going to destroy PROTOTYPE’s original anti-hero, Alex Mercer. For those that missed it, head over to the official Prototype Facebook page to check out the trailer and be sure to become a fan. Gamers should also be on the lookout for the exclusive, in-depth first look preview of PROTOTYPE 2 in EGM magazine’s April 2011 issue.
“When PROTOTYPE surpassed 2MM units we knew gamers would want a sequel to find out what happens next with Alex Mercer,” said Ken Rosman, Studio Head, Radical Entertainment. “The team here at Radical is sincerely grateful to the fans and we are laser focused on delivering an even bigger and better experience with PROTOTYPE 2!”
Additionally, for those that missed out on one of 2009’s best-selling games, or fans dying to reawaken their shape-shifting skills, Radical Entertainment’s original over-the-top action game PROTOTYPE is available now for download on Xbox LIVE® Marketplace for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft for $29.99, and will be available for download on December 14, 2010 on the PlayStation®Store for PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system for $29.99. Fans of the game at the official Prototype Facebook page will automatically be entered into a random drawing to win a token to download the game for FREE.
PROTOTYPE 2 is currently rated “RP” (Rating Pending) by the ESRB, with an expected “M” (Mature – Content that may be suitable for persons 17 and older) rating – because players will still be able to karate kick helicopters right out of the sky and do all sorts of really gory stuff with tendrils; but mostly because Heller is really pissed off at Alex Mercer and there’s no way to tell that story without getting a little … well … gross.
