Activision has released a new video for Prototype 2 which demonstrates the new Pack leader ability Heller can perform in the game. How it works, is he calls upon infected Brawlers and forces them to fight for him. Once summoned, Heller directs his these new allies to destroy tanks, helicopters other enemies, or whatever he needs them to do. They will follow his orders despite the danger to themselves. You can see how this works out for yourself below. Prototype 2 is out next week on PS3 and Xbox 360. The PC version releases in July.

Cowen and Company analyst Doug Creutz has deduced Prototype 2 will “struggle” to sell 500,000 units in the US during its first year on the market, predicting the title will see a “soft performance” compared to sales of the original title. Creutz noted the game has yet to break Amazon’s top 100 selling games charts, which was “typically a bad sign for actual sales.” The firm originally expected the title to “slightly exceed” the 900,000 units Prototype 1 sold in the US during its first year. Prototype 2 releases worldwide, next week, on April 24 for PS3 and Xbox 360. The PC version is expected on July 24. Thanks, Gamasutra.

“We started off with an amalgamation of Hugh Jackman and Clint Eastwood, and the resulting render looked remarkably similar to James Marsden – so we were like ‘Okay, scratch that one out’. As we were going, there was something about a concept sketch of some ethnicity or other that wasn’t just the the generic Caucasian guy and we were all drawn to it. We started riffing on that character and ended up with Heller. It’s more about conveying the stature, the position and swagger of a hero. Skin colour is obviously involved and that’s where we ended up but it’s not where we started”. – Radical studio head Ken Rosman and Activision’s MacLean Marshall to OPM.
