In video form, Activision and developer Radical Entertainment would like to enumerate the reasons why you should pick up their gory, superpowered action game next month.
Activision's video is essentially a bloody highlight reel of (some of) the many types of kills your mutated super soldier can use in Prototype 2. According to our own Kevin Kelly during his hands-on preview at DICE, the sequel is shaping up nicely with refinements and additions to the overall experience from the first game.
And in case that video didn't give you much of a hint of Prototype 2's story, here's the synopsis:
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 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!
Prototype 2 will be available for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC April 24th.
