Prototype 2; the game will be hitting stores for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on April 24, 2012. The game will feature the showdown between Prototype hero-turned-villain Alex Mercer and Prototype 2 protagonist Sgt. James Heller.
"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."
The game will be shown off at regular 15 minute stage presentations at Activision's booth at the San Diego Comic Con this weekend. Visitors to the booth can enter a raffle for a chance to win a limited edition, custom leather jacket modeled after the one Sgt. James Heller wears in the game; or a Alex Mercer one of a kind, custom skinned Xbox 360. Additionally, the team from Radical will be on-site handing out assorted Prototype 2 themed merch, including t-shirts, posters, giant foam Heller Blade Arms and more.
