Activision have set an April 24th 2012 release date for Prototype 2, the upcoming tentacle-powered, open-world sequel from Radical Entertainment.
The sequel to Radical Entertainment’s 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!
To accompany the launch date announcement, they've also released a new cinematic trailer which is reportedly the first in a three-parter. Check it out below or click here for HD
Prototype 2 is in development for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
