Prepare to shapeshift your way through an infected world, boys and girls; Prototype 2 has shipped today for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. In the sequel, players will switch into the shapeshifting boots of the antagonist from the first game as they experience what Activision bills as the “epic showdown between Sgt. James Heller and Alex Mercer.” Set 14 months after the events of the original game, Prototype 2 follows all-new protagonist – Sgt. James Heller – as he sets out to exact revenge against the man he holds responsible for the loss of his loved ones and the world as he once knew it – Alex Mercer.
Fans that already pre-ordered Prototype 2 or purchase the game during the launch window will gain access to RADNET Edition content via a one-time-use code giving them 55 pieces of additional content for free, delivered for seven weeks post launch. This weekly scheduled content includes in-game Events, Challenges, Avatar Items, Dynamic Themes and Behind-the-Scenes videos, as well as bonus Mutations for Prototype 2’s main story. And those who participate in ALL of RADNET’s weekly Challenges and Events will unlock the ultimate shape-shifting reward…the Alex Mercer playable skin.
