In a press release issued today, Activision has released the first storyline trailer for open-world, action-adventure Prototype 2
, the sequel to Prototype (Xbox 360)
Before we get to said trailer (embedded below), a brief synopsis of the storyline may prove useful. Alex Mercer, the main protagonist from the first title returns, but this time around he's the super villian. Instead, gamers will control Sgt. James Heller, a military veteran who has lost his family to the Blacklight virus. The new game's main character is subsequently infected by Alex Mercer, and then embarks on a vendetta, along with Blackwatch (the force tasked with containing the virus), to kill the guy who has made his life a complete misery. That's the sequel in a nutshell... but if you want to know more, you should check out last month's round-up
Developed by Radical Entertainment, Prototype 2
remains set for release in 2012.
