Prototype 2 – “take down the devil”, plus gamescom teaser

By Stace Harman, Tuesday, 16 August 2011 12:48 GMT

In an interview with Gamespot AU, Radical Entertainment marketing director Chris Ansell has spoken about the role reversal in Prototype 2 that sees you going up against Alex Mercer, the morally ambiguous protagonist of the first game. Plus, new gamescom teaser below.

In the video interview below, Ansell explains the challenges you’ll face as Sgt. James Heller who has lost his wife and daughter in the carnage brought about by Alex Mercer, the anti-hero of the first game. He also discusses how much more polished the sequel will be as well as how the team have addressed difficulty spikes and overhauled the mutation system.

And to whet your appetite further here’s a gamescom teaser, the ‘Evolution of Awesome’. It doesn’t sound like it ends well.

Prototype 2 launches for 360, PC and PS3 April 2012.
