The original received a lukewarm reception from critics but still managed to garner plenty of fans. And the second, based on the debut trailer (see it below), should generate even more fans, and perhaps more love from reviewers.
After debuting at the Spike TV Video Game Awards this past weekend, Activision has officially announced Prototype 2 ; Sgt. James Heller is out to destroy the original anti-hero, Alex Mercer, and things are gonna get nasty. We expect Radical Entertainment will have plenty of time to iron out the kinks found in the first game, and the final product should be well worth playing. Said studio boss Ken Rosman:
"When PROTOTYPE surpassed 2MM units we knew gamers would want a sequel to find out what happens next with Alex Mercer. 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!"
Also, if you missed out on the original title, you can download it now on the Xbox Live Marketplace for $29.99. It will be available on the PlayStation Network tomorrow, December 14, for the same price. Finally, we can expect the first "in-depth preview" to show up in EGM's April 2011 issue. We'll let you know when they nail down a release date for next year.
